Suunto Vertical with military-grade durability

Suunto Vertical was tested according to the MIL-STD 810H military-grade standard in an external testing laboratory Toptester to ensure maximum reliability and durability.

List of the passed tests:

  1. MIL-STD-810H - Test Method 500.6 Low Pressure (Altitude)
    Checks if the watch can function at high altitudes (like on a mountain) where air pressure is lower.
  2. MIL-STD-810H - Test Method 501.7 High Temperature, operation
    Ensures the watch works in high temperatures without malfunctioning.
  3. MIL-STD-810H - Test Method 502.7 Low Temperature, operation
    Verifies the watch's performance in cold conditions.
  4. MIL-STD-810H - Test Method 503.7 Temperature Shock
    Tests how well the watch handles sudden changes in temperature, like moving from a hot desert to an air-conditioned room.
  5. MIL-STD-810H - Test Method 510.7 Dust
    Ensures the watch is resistant to dust, which can affect functionality and visibility.
  6. MIL-STD-810H - Test Method 516.8 Shock
    Checks the watch's ability to withstand physical shocks, like being knocked or dropped.
  7. MIL-STD-810H - Test Method 516.8 Drop
    Specifically tests the watch's resilience to drops from certain heights onto hard surfaces.
  8. MIL-STD-810H - Test Method 512.6 Immersion
    Checks if the watch can withstand being submerged in water. The test simulates conditions like rain, waves, or brief underwater dips.
  9. MIL-STD-810H - Test Method 524.1 Freeze/ Thaw
    Assesses how the watch performs or gets affected by ice accumulation or freezing rain.

These tests mean the watch is robust and reliable in a wide range of tough conditions.

U.S. MIL-STD-810 is a United States Military Standard that emphasizes tailoring an equipment's environmental design and test limits to the conditions that it will experience throughout its service life, and establishing chamber test methods that replicate the effects of environments on the equipment rather than imitating the environments themselves.
