Suunto are certainly not resting on their laurels following their success in the Men’s Running Awards, winning in both the Running Tech Brand and GPS Watch categories. Since then, the award-winning Spartan Sport Wrist HR has been joined by not one but two new models…
With all the features of the Suunto Spartan Sport but with the addition of a Barometer, the Spartan Sport Wrist HR Baro gives more precise altitude readings. Perfect if you like to run in the mountains, plus it has some neat functions for skiers too. Like all Suunto watches, they are made from premium materials for robust outdoor activities.
For those wanting a simpler but still feature packed running watch at entry level price, the new Suunto Spartan Trainer is smaller in size and lighter than its older siblings, yet delivers great, versatile training features, daily activity tracking, as well as wrist heart rate measurement by best-in-class biometrics supplier Valencell. Clear, easy-to-follow colour graphs provide 24/7 feedback and summaries on the customizable watch face, and daily targets for steps and calories help keep you on track. You can wear it in the shower or pool as it’s water resistant to 50m. In watch and activity tracking mode, it will last 14 days before needing a recharge and has 10 hours battery life in full on GPS mode, 30 hours with power saving options.
If you’re already lucky enough to own a Suunto Spartan, it’s worth noting there have been some major software updates for current models. All models can now benefit from sleep tracking, sunrise/sunset times and route navigation now includes estimated time of arrival and remaining distance to destination. And all watches can use Suunto Heatmaps to help find locally recommended routes. Just choose your preferred area on the map, select one of the 16 sports, and zoom in to see the most popular tracks for trail running, road running and more. Based on the heatmaps, you can plan your own routes in Suunto Movescount and transfer them to your Suunto GPS watch for navigation.
