Suunto introduces new variants of Suunto 9, its flagship lineup of multisport GPS watches, and Suunto 3 Fitness, the training watch for active lifestyle. The new variants include a top-of-the-line Suunto 9 model, with a robust titanium bezel and chiseled, triangular strap pattern, as well as three streamlined variants in black, white and lime. The Suunto 3 Fitness collection grows with two new designs, burgundy and copper, as well as a software update that introduces two new training programs.
Suunto 9: trusted by athletes around the world
The Suunto 9 has been lauded for its 120 hours of GPS-enabled battery life and intelligent battery life management system. The new variants include a top-of-the-line Suunto 9 model, with a robust titanium bezel and chiseled, triangular strap pattern, which speaks to the brand’s “designed for adventure” heritage. Moreover, the Suunto 9 line-up receives three streamlined variants in black, white and lime that pack all that battery performance into models without a barometer and are more at home on flatter terrain.
Suunto 9 was designed and built to meet the needs of the most demanding athletes and has quickly become a trusted companion for professional athletes and adventure-loving consumers around the world. Made for long, arduous training and racing, Suunto 9 has been tested to the extreme over thousands of hours by top athletes, including 2018 Western States Endurance Run champion Francois D’Haene.
“I need products that are user-friendly and reliable, and the Suunto 9 combines these qualities. In addition to being easy-to-use, the increased battery life and intelligent battery features make this my ideal companion for any adventure,” says D’Haene, the current fastest-known-time (FKT) holder on California’s 210.4-mile John Muir Trail.
“As an ultra trail runner, battery life is an essential factor, so this innovation thrills me.”
Software update revamps popular Suunto 3 Fitness with new choices for adaptive training plans
Suunto designed the Suunto 3 Fitness for active people who value health and well-being. Each watch delivers an adaptive, seven-day training plan based on the user’s fitness level and, together with daily sleep, stress and recovery monitoring, helps users maintain a healthy balance between activity and rest.
In October, Suunto will launch two new color variants for the Suunto 3 Fitness, Burgundy and Copper, as well as a new software update that will diversify the training guidance programs offered in its award-winning sports watch. Users will be able to choose from the below training programs based on their personal goals and preferences:
• Improve: The current default plan on the Suunto 3 Fitness, which helps users gradually improve their level of fitness
• Boost: A more rigorous training plan that helps users quickly improve their fitness
• Maintain: Allows users to maintain their current level of fitness and enjoy regular exercise
The new Suunto 3 Fitness colorways, Burgundy and Copper, will both feature a stainless-steel bezel, silicone straps with a quick release mechanism, and mobile-phone assisted GPS.
Staying connected with Suunto app
Both Suunto 9 and Suunto 3 Fitness connect to the new Suunto app, which allows users to track their adventures and long-term trends like daily activity and sleep. With the app, both watches can receive mobile alerts so that incoming calls, messages and notifications go straight to your watch. In the case of the Suunto 3 Fitness, connecting to the Suunto app can enable speed, distance and route tracking using the mobile phone’s GPS. The Suunto app is available in the App Store and Google Play.
The new Suunto 9 models and Suunto 3 Fitness designs will be available in key retailers and at suunto.com as of October 2, 2018.
