Suunto 9 – the sports smartwatch with stamina
Suunto has just this moment announced the new Suunto 9. This multisport GPS watch is designed for athletes who demand the best from their wearable.
Furthermore, Suunto 9 boasts amazing battery stamina. In fact, we’re told to expect up to 120 hours with GPS and an intelligent battery life management system with smart reminders that ensures your watch will last just as long as you need it to.
Being a Suunto product you just know that it has been built to tackle long, arduous training and racing. So, rest assured that it has been tested to the extreme with thousands of hours testing in the toughest conditions.
Suunto 9 is compatible with the new Suunto app that keeps a log of your training, daily activity and sleep. It also enables social sharing of your training logs and engaging with others in the Suunto app community.
Intelligent battery technology with smart reminders
Three predefined battery modes – Performance, Endurance and Ultra – deliver from 25 hours to up to 120 hours of recording time with GPS tracking on. Additionally, you can create custom battery modes to best suit your needs.
When you start a recording, you’ll get an estimate of how much battery life you have left with the current mode. If it’s not enough, switch to another mode at any time.
In addition to the battery modes, Suunto 9 uses smart reminders to help you ensure you have enough battery for your next adventure. Some reminders are preemptive based on, for example, your activity history to make sure you are 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.
The new sports wearable has endured thousands of hours testing in the toughest conditions. Suunto 9 is designed and built to meet the demands of professional athletes. It has actually been tested in real world use in the toughest conditions by Suunto’s internal testing team and athletes all over the world.
Markus Kemetter, Suunto Product Line Manager told GadgetyNews:
Durability and precision, attributes at the core of Suunto design heritage, are highly valued by our athletes,and one of the elementary reasons they trust and choose us. To ensure this, we put the Suunto 9 through vigorous testing. First in our testing laboratory, exposing the materials and the build to various elements and forces, including drop, freeze/thaw, humidity and immersion, and later by our skilled and passionate team of field testers and athletes, who for months have used the watch in their training and everyday life.”
Suunto FusedTrack for more accurate track and distance
On long ultra runs you generally have to make a compromise. The deciding factors are generally battery life and the ability to record distance and track accurately. You see, GPS is a heavy drain on the battery. Well, in strolls Suunto’s unique FusedTrack algorithm. This combines GPS and motion sensor data to improve track and distance accuracy.
Moreover, this allows you to extend battery life by lowering GPS power without significantly compromising accuracy.

True to Suunto’s sports expertise, Suunto 9 is packed with over 80 sport modes. Not only that, it also delivers convenient wrist heart rate measurement from Valencell Inc.
Also, the watch comes with full GPS route navigation, sunrise/sunset times, storm alarm and many other great features for athletes and outdoor adventurers.
