Denzel Washington is back in another action packed movie called The Equalizer (2014) where he plays as Robert McCall, a former black ops commando who faked his death for a quiet life in Boston and then he meets Teri, a young girl under the control of the violent Russian gangsters. Armed with dangerous skills, McCall comes out of retirement to help the girl and serve justice.
In the movie, you get to see him wear a cool black watch where he times himself before unleashing horror on the Russian mob. The watch seems to look like the Suunto Core All Black ref. SS014279010. Unfortunately the large stopwatch function that you see in the movie does not exist in the actual watch and was edited-in using CGI effects but this is the closest you’ll get. If the stopwatch feature is what you want, then check out the Suunto 5 GPS sports watch in all black which comes with both the stopwatch and countdown timer.
For the outdoor enthusiasts, it comes with a host of features. The composite case material keeps the watch light at 64g but it’s chunky measuring 49.1mm in both diameter and lug to lug with a thickness of 14.5mm. The black elastomer strap which is essentially rubber material pairs well with the watch. It has an intelligent Storm Alarm that checks for rapid drop in air pressure and lets you know that something unpleasant is fast approaching.
The built-in altimeter shows you your current elevation like how much you’ve climbed or descended and is accurate to 30,000 feet. The barometer function lets you measure and record air pressure to predict short term changes in the weather conditions. Low pressure indicates inclement weather such as rain or storms while high pressure brings clear skies.
The Suunto Core All Black also has a built-in weather trend indicator that lets you predict the weather in advance with amazing accuracy. It has a digital compass where you can also set your bearing with a rotating bezel. It includes other functionalities like dual times, date display, alarm, water resistance to 100 feet and other functions. While the water resistance level isn’t that great but it has a depth meter reading up to 30 feet which can be used for light snorkeling.
If you’re someone who likes the outdoor like biking, hiking and camping then this is the watch for you. It retails for $329 but you can get it now for around $118 at Amazon. Check out the watch on Denzel’s wrist in the movie trailer below:-
