SUUNTO SPARTAN TRAINER WRIST HR 

My second demo of the Suunto product line is the Spartan Trainer HR. The Spartan technology has a very responsive, accurate with multiple sport technology ingrained in this highly connected GPS system. The watch has a very classic, durable and robust design that has a 30-hour battery life with up to 10 hours in full training mode. The battery also gives you 14 days of just a time mode option. The watch is accurate not only for distance, speed and pace but also is used for pavement, wheel and water sporting functions. As with my preference in watches today, I prefer the wrist-based heart function which was very accurate even side by side to my Garmin Chronos and Swimmo watches also. The Spartan Trainer has the durability and professional look for either sport or office. It is fully customizable with graphs and live data all at your fingertips. The watch is water resistant up to 50 m and will track you 24/7 on land, water or bike and has a sleep mode option also. I’ve also found with Suunto products is the GPS is locked on navigation routes for easy viewing of your route. The watch face has full customization and keeps you up-to-date with all calls, text and appointment schedules. The watch is very affordably priced at $279 which is an excellent price point. The Spartan Trainer HR watch is an accurate, durable and robust edition to your training or the office that has a very affordable price.
