AltimeterThe altimeter measures altitudes up to 9,000m. It is ideal for all activities where it is important to know your altitude and ascent/descent speeds. Suunto Core altimeter will measure differences in altitude in order to monitor your ascent/descent progress. The log records all your changes in altitude between start and end times, so that you can analyse your activity at home and draw charts.
BarometerThe Suunto Core displays current sea level pressure in a detailed chart including the values recorded every 30 minutes over the last 24 hours. The weather trend indicator is a useful feature that allows you to know the next weather conditions at a glance. The storm alert informs you of any sudden change in the air pressure that is an indicator of rough weather.
Alti/Baro automatic switchThe Suunto Core features an automatic Alti/Baro switch that detects the presence or absence of movement to switch from altimeter mode to barometer mode, respectively. When you are climbing, it records your changes in altitude. And when you stop to rest, it records the changes in air pressure. Every pressure drop occurring while you sleep under the stars will be interpreted.
CompassThe digital compass shows North and cardinal or semi-cardinal points. Declination adjustment lets you correct the difference between true North and magnetic North. You can also set the compass to track a bearing of your choosing, it will help you get around in unknown terrain.
Depth gaugeDesigned for freediving, the Suunto Core depth gauge gives you your current depth and the maximum depth of your dive. Measures depth up to 10m.

Outdated tech at new technology prices18/04/2017Response of the brandHi Mitchell,
I'm really sorry that you were not satisfied with the Suunto Core watch and thank you for sharing your feedback.
I am glad you were able to return the watch and find something you are happier with.
I have shared your feedback with the buying team that works with Suunto to share.
Regarding the backlight, it is a watch that is popular for mountaineers as well as the where a strong back light is not good for your night vision and also to allow for a longer battery life. That said if you are using it where there is ambient light I fully understand that it can be difficult to see.
