My favour belongs to the brand new, just released Suunto Spartan Ultra Wrist HR. The newest member of the Suunto Spartan collection combines Suunto’s hallmark robust and stylish design and an extensive set of sport features with the convenience of wrist-based heart rate measurement powered by U.S.-based Valencell, the leading innovator in wearable biometric data sensor technology.
You have heaps of options through their massive range of models, aimed to suit every possible love of the outdoors. For those (like me) who feed off, and are motivated by training and performance data, this is the MUST HAVE of all wrist computers for anyone pursuing a passion in long-to-ultra distance obstacle and adventure racing. Navigation, speed, heart rate, altitude, weather conditions and extended features for running, biking and swimming.
To further diversify these options, there are thousands of Suunto Apps available to add new functionalities to the watch. TOUGH AS NUTS the Spartan Sport Wrist HR is handmade in Finland with robust casing, mineral crystal glass and a stainless steel bezel. Battery life up to 12 hours with Power Save 1sec GPS fix rate delivers good GPS accuracy in training mode. The watch features a highly durable color touchscreen with a wide viewing angle and high-contrast visibility in bright sunlight.
If you need more battery grunt for those ultra-distance hauls, look through the Ambit3 and Spartan Ultra HR ranges where you will find battery life of up to 50 hours (dependent upon satellite refresh rates, back-lighting and apps). Either way, you will be ready for any race you can throw at it. Enjoy 🙂
