I was very impressed with the Suunto Spartan Trainer, it offered multi-sports features at an affordable price. So it is good to hear that Suunto today has announced the new Suunto 3 Fitness, a smart and robust fitness watch for people who lead an active lifestyle and value health and wellbeing. A beautifully designed personal training companion and elegant timepiece for everyday use, the Suunto 3 Fitness delivers individual training guidance based on fitness level and even adapts to training rhythms, inspiring you to keep moving.
Suunto 3 Fitness comes with convenient wrist heart rate measurement, provided by Valencell Inc., and a heart rate-based fitness indicator that determines your current fitness level.
The watch automatically creates seven-day training plans, using your fitness level and overall exercise history as a base. However, if you miss an exercise, or get excited and do a little more than planned, Suunto 3 Fitness automatically adapts your training plan accordingly, so you don’t need to stress about keeping up with the plan. Additional real-time guidance with heart rate zones during every workout help ensure you train at the right intensity.
Suunto 3 Fitness provides 24/7 activity tracking for steps and calories, and easy-to-follow summaries provide a view of your daily activity, helping you balance training and rest. Sleep quality tracking indicates how well sleep supports your recovery, enabling you to keep up with your active lifestyle.
The Suunto 3 Fitness will be available in the spring in five different models: Gold, All Black, Ocean, Sakura and Black. Gold and All Black (£199 tbc) present an elegant, urban feel with gold- or black-plated stainless steel bezels and pushers. Black, Ocean and Sakura come with polished stainless steel bezels and offer a fresh, lively look (£169 tbc). Full product details will be released later.
