  • provide your name and address, phone number, email address, payment details and other required information;
  • be at least 18 years of age;
  • provide a delivery address in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland (Note that Suunto is unable to deliver to certain addresses, including but not limited to, P.O. Box addresses, overseas army addresses, hotels, hostels or prisons.); and

3. Order Processing and Contract Formation

You agree that your order is an offer to buy the Products listed in your order under these Sales Terms. All orders must be accepted by Suunto. We may choose not to accept abnormal orders and orders which Suunto suspects are not placed in good faith.

After having received your order, we will send you an acknowledgement email ("Your Suunto Order") with your order number and details of the items you have ordered.

Acceptance of your order and the formation of the contract of sale between Suunto and you will not take place unless and until you have received Your Suunto Order confirmation email.

You have the option to cancel your order at any stage by contacting Suunto customer service before we have sent Your Suunto Order confirmation email.

4. Prices, Shipping and Handling, Charges and Taxes

The price charged for a Product will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed and will be set out in the order receipt and order confirmation emails. Suunto may change prices at any time without notice. Price increases will only apply to orders placed after such changes.

Prices for the Products include VAT or other applicable taxes but do not include charges for shipping and handling.

Separate charges for shipping, handling and their related VAT or other taxes will be shown on Your Suunto Order email.

5. Product Availability and Delivery, Circumstances Beyond Reasonable Control

Suunto does not guarantee the availability of any Product in the Online Shop. Suunto reserves the right, without liability or earlier notice, to change, discontinue or stop making any Product.

For details on different delivery options please see summary of our services.

We will provide you with the information on the latest expected delivery date which will not exceed 30 days unless you specifically agree on a later date.

If you order any personalised items, the manufacturing time for such items is added to the shipping time of the selected delivery option.

In case you unreasonably defer delivery or delay the receipt of delivery after we have notified you that we have tried to deliver the ordered items to you, or if you have provided us with an incorrect delivery address which results in an unsuccessful delivery, the delivery package will be returned to us. If the items remain undelivered after the first delivery attempt for a period of 7 working days and are returned to us undelivered, we consider that you have exercised your right to cancel the contract and when we receive the returned delivery package we will refund you in accordance with our return policy less the reasonable additional costs incurred by Suunto.

Suunto shall not be held responsible for delay or failure to perform if the delay or failure is caused by any circumstances beyond its reasonable control including but not limited to acts of war or terror, strikes, national or local states of emergency, failure of transportation facilities, power or utility outages, earthquakes, or other natural disasters.

6. Compatibility, Product Information

When placing your order please ensure that the Products you purchased are compatible for the intended use. Please use the information provided in the Online Shop as reference when checking compatibility. In the event of a difference between the Online Shop content and any other Suunto (or non-Suunto) web site (or any other source of information) the compatibility of Products as shown on the Online Shop at the time of purchase will be seen as taking precedence. We encourage you to examine the delivery package and received items within fourteen days after they are delivered to you and check their condition and that the content of the delivery package is complete.

7. Payment

Payment by credit/debit cards shall be made by a credit or debit card approved by Suunto. Approved credit and debit card types are listed in the Online Shop. You have to supply your payment card details when you place your order. Your payment card will be charged on shipment of the ordered items. We will not supply the items to you until your card issuer has authorised the use of your card for payment of the ordered Products. As your Order confirmation email is your proof of purchase, we recommend that you save and print that document for your potential future use.

8. Title to Products

Suunto retains full legal title to Products until it has received all amounts due on the ordered Products.

9. Return and Refund, Other Options

  • i) you may authorize us to issue another Product replacing the original one; or
  • ii) you may authorize us to issue a credit note.

These rights are optional, subject to your sole discretion and express consent.

If the Products you have received do not correspond to the ones you have ordered, or if your delivery is incomplete or damaged in transportation, please contact without delay our customer service either via email or by phone for assistance.

10. How to Return Items?

A return code has been inserted within your package with return instructions.

You must return the items in their original package. You must include all accessories, user manuals and any free gifts that came in the same package.

Where an item has been purchased as a part of a bundle of multiple items, all multiple items within that bundle must be returned. Please treat the items with reasonable care and return them in the condition that they were delivered to you. We encourage you to use, if possible, the original delivery package or pack the items securely and make sure that both the return code and your order number are clearly visible on the outside of the parcel.

To ensure fast and secure return we encourage you to follow the given return instructions and use the return label provided by Suunto. Replacement or refund can only be processed once we have received all the items to be returned.

In case of replacement the original items will be replaced by identical new items.

If you return items 1) that you are not entitled to return, 2) that are not in their original condition, 3) that are without proper or missing packaging, 4) with items missing from the return delivery, 5) without following our return instructions, or 6) have otherwise failed to exercise reasonable care when taking care of and returning items, we reserve the right either to reject your return and decline to refund or to deduct from those payments to be refunded to you reasonable repair or other similar direct costs that we have incurred, subject to applicable law.

If your return has been accepted, we will refund you the price you have actually paid for the items (as per the above) by crediting your payment card 15 (fifteen) calendar days after the date of receipt of the delivery.

Please note that Suunto will only process returns and refunds for items bought in this Online Shop.
