SureFire 2211 Luminox WristLight Boasts 300 Lumens With Integral Swiss Timepiece


Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire has expanded its revolutionary line of 2211 WristLights—a whole new category of hands-free illumination tools—with the release of its new SureFire 2211 Luminox whose output maxes out at 300 lumens! This new rechargeable WristLight features a high-performance LED focused by a special refractive optic as the original 2211 WristLight, but it also sports a high-quality timepiece from legendary Swiss watchmaker Luminox.

Created with input from law enforcement professionals, the 2211 Luminox’s light output is designed to automatically align downrange from a pistol held in a standard two-handed grip. This broad, powerful beam is ideal for identifying threats and blinding an aggressor’s night-adapted vision. The LED’s output can be set to 300 lumens with a simple press of either of its ambidextrous switches. There are also two useful lower-output settings of 60 and 15 lumens for tasks where less light and more runtime are called for, such as navigating outdoor trails or loading/unloading gear. These lower levels can be easily accessed by pressing both buttons simultaneously.


The classic Luminox watch of this new WristLight features a Swiss quartz movement, a unidirectional rotating bezel with timer markings, and self-illuminating tritium gas hands and markers that glow bright for easy reading in low-light conditions. Fully integrated into a lightweight but rugged aluminum body, the watch has a hardened, scratch-resistant mineral crystal that protects its face, and gasket sealing for waterproofing. The hard-anodized, gasket-sealed body—which also houses the LED, optic, pushbutton switching, USB charge port, and fuel gauge—is the size of a large sports watch, and it straps securely to the wrist via a comfortable rubber wristband with a stainless steel buckle.

The LED is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, while the Luminox watch is powered by a separate non-rechargeable lithium disk battery for continuous timekeeping even if the rechargeable battery is fully depleted. A built-in LED fuel gauge let’s you know when it’s time to charge the battery, which is easily accomplished via an included USB charging cable.

    Okay – I’m not a watch guy, or even a gadget guy generally, but that is FRIKKIN COOL!!

    Just one thing – PLEASE make them in Coyote Brown and/or Olive Green too!!

    Gecko45 approves!

    That is one ugly MF!

    Would be cool if they made some kind of remote pressure switch for it…

    Still prefer to keep them separate. Form factor is comical on this attempt. I have seen smaller diver instruments.

      That’s not really the point. The Surefire light already has this profile on it and it basically just added the Luminox. The light does feel very watch-like and for specific applications, or guys with wild EDC, I could see the use in combining. Having a rechargeable flashlight on your wrist is neat.

    So when are we going to see a Suunto/Surefire mashup?

  7. CRH says:

    A huge waste of engineering resources and money. I hope they fixed the accelerometer issues because the one I saw at Shot Show 2012 was AD-ing like a MF!

    I’m LEO and have been using one of these without the watch since the start of the year.

    It’s about as heavy as I’d like to go for patrolling, especially on your wrist where it tends to flop about some. The strap is bombproof however if you run it too tight the edges catch your wrist / back of your hand. If the strap is too loose the torch is all over the place due to the weight.

    I’ve found that it works better for search warrants than a headlamp or standard torch tucked under your arm, with the surefire wrist light the light is right where your hands are without having to bob up and down with a headlamp trying to get a clear line on what you’re doing.

    The torch warms up pretty quickly, is bulky and has fairly blunt edges.

    I think this product has merit but needs refinement, the watch is not required. The beam is crisp, bright but not offensive (perfect for close in urban work), wide beam angle for good peripheral illumination.
    The battery is internal, plug into the computer which is good and bad. If the torch goes down, it’s properly down.

    I only use Surefire torches by choice with my A2Z combat light and the wrist light close by in the kit bag.

    It’s nice to hear an honest review from someone who works in the intended market. Being a first gen product I expect to see significant refinement in the next.
