Suunto reveals its latest multisport GPS watch, Suunto 9, with a host of intelligent technology such as a smart battery designed to last up to 120 hours, smart reminders and the Suunto’s FusedTrack™ feature that combines GPS and motion sensor data to improve track and distance accuracy. The multisports watch is also compatible with the new Suunto app so that its wearer can track, upload, analyse and compare his or her log of your training, daily activity and sleep straight from the watch or via the app. Strava and TrainingPeaks compatibility also lets you upload your data to your favourite sporting social media while improved watch connectivity ensures that you never miss tracking a single run or bike.
Suunto 9 Key Features:
Great battery life and intelligent technology with smart reminders
Suunto 9’s three pre-defined battery modes – Performance, Endurance and Ultra – gives you anywhere from 25 hours up to 120 hours of recording time with GPS tracking on.
Additionally, the watch’s smart reminders ensure that you always have enough battery for your next adventure. It is able to detect recurring exercises based on your activity history and sends you a reminder to make sure that your watch is fully charged for the next outing. If the watch notices you are running low on battery during an exercise, it will automatically suggest changing to a different battery mode, which you can do with just one push.
FusedTrack™ feature for more accurate track and distance
Suunto’s FusedTrack™ feature combines GPS and motion sensor data to improve track and distance accuracy, allowing you to extend battery life by lowering GPS power without significantly compromising accuracy. This way, limited battery life won’t interfere with recording your distance and track accurately.
New Suunto app to keep track of all adventures
Suunto 9 is compatible with the new Suunto app that keeps a log of your training, daily activity and sleep, and enables sharing your training logs and engaging with others in the Suunto app community. Get notified of all incoming call alerts and messages too. Available for download from App Store and Google Play.
The sports watch for all kinds of activities
Suunto 9 is packed with over 80 sport modes and delivers convenient wrist heart rate measurement from Valencell Inc. The watch comes with full GPS route navigation, sunrise/sunset times and many other great features for athletes and outdoor adventurers.
Built to last
Suunto 9 is tested to the extreme with thousands of hours of real use in the toughest conditions by Suunto’s internal testing team and athletes all over the world, ensuring that it delivers everything you need to confidently see you through any adventure. Premium materials and construction round out this high performer designed and manufactured in Finland. Stainless steel bezel and buttons, sapphire crystal glass, and a robust case are combed with a soft and durable silicone strap for comfortable wear.
“When talking about training or racing tools for any adventure or endurance sport, the first thing I consider is durability, because it actually gives you the chance to just focus on what you need to do,” comments Mauricio Méndez Cruz, Suunto triathlete and Xterra World Champion. “For me, GPS track accuracy during training and racing has become, not a tool, but a weapon of choice and by this I mean that with it I have become a lot more precise, efficient and confident on my moves during racing – which, at the end of the day, is what makes me be at the top of the podium,” he concludes.
