The Regatta features a large display with big numerals, electro-luminescent backlight, user-replaceable battery and it is waterproof to 30 m/100 ft.
The beautifully designed Suunto Regatta has been developed together with some of the top sailors in the World, with experience from the Whitbread Around the World Race to the World Championships.
Suunto Regatta’s sailing timer allows you to set the time left to start and synchronize the timer with the race committee at any time with a push of a button. Large numerals and audible warning signals let you concentrate more on maneuvering your boat in the swarming of the start, while Suunto Regatta keeps you informed on up-coming critical moments.
The electronic compass shows your bearing in cardinal or half-cardinal points and a North-South arrow. You can also use the bearing tracking function, ensuring that you stay on course. A rotating bezel ring with a ratchet at every five degrees is particularly helpful determining the start line bias and for memorizing the wind direction.
In addition to basic time keeping functions Suunto Regatta has a calendar clock pre-programmed to the year 2089, three daily alarms and a regular countdown timer. Additionally, Suunto Regatta features dual time and a stopwatch.
