SUUNTO SPARTAN SPORT WRIST HR  

Spartan Sport Wrist HR watch is the first demo for this year in a long line of superior Suunto products. While I had never heard of Suunto, the most recent was the best CES 2017 award from Runners World.  I was ready for the Suunto experience. My general intro and first training experience of the Spartan sport HR was truly amazing… this watch can truly do anything any athlete requires. There are several key features of the Spartan Sport which include continuous heart rate monitoring, true instant GPS tracking, large color touch screen and of course the most advanced performance dynamics I’ve seen to this point. The Spartan Sport Wrist HR is able to track and supports over 80 sports with racing and interval use.  The heart rate is precise and works in all types of weather conditions primarily running, swimming and cycling. The precision and advanced performance dynamics can you viewed up to a 30-day training summary on your watch giving you impressive analytics and feedback through the Suunto Movescount. The watch face is customizable for your individual preference and gives you 24/7 activity monitoring with steps, calories and rate. Synchronization thru the Suunto Movescount iOS and Android Apps is seamless with push notifications. The large crystal touchscreen is highly sensitive to the touch but not overly giving easily moving through screens or to start your activity tracking. Battery life is between 8 (best tracking) and 12 (good tracking) hours depending on the amount of power or save GPS mode. The steel bezel is durable with an outdoor grade color touchscreen with only three specific push buttons for easy navigation through the screens. The GPS tracking is instant and imprecise with a real-time breadcrumb trail and navigation, a digital tilt compensated compass and altimeter values. The watch is 100 meter or 300 ft. water resistant. While the watch has a slightly higher price point at $499, Spartan Sport HR gives the athlete the ability to track any and all sports with superior GPS and performance analytics all through a highly visible color touchscreen watch.
