Room for improvement
This watch has a great aesthetic and fits less bulky than other smart watches. However, I've encountered a couple of flaws I haven't been able to tackle with Suunto customer service. Unfortunately, I found this all out after the watch had already seen some wear and tear and is outside of its return period.
-Battery: Suunto and reviewers say that this has excellent battery life. I've found that around a week without even running is about all the battery lasts. This is worse than my Garmin Fenix 2 which was an older but more reliable watch.
-Tracking: My runs have been off by about 1/4 mile per run so my pacing has been inaccurate. This feels like it defeats the purpose of this type of watch :(
-HR monitor. This watch says my heart rate gets up to 200 bpm on jogs. Not true. Also RHR is 70-80 bpm. Also not true.
For a watch marketed as the top of the top, I'm a little disappointed, especially now that I can't return/have to sell it but am not confident in the product. Check out the Garmin Fenix 5.
Longest battery life
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought this watch to train more effectively for ultra distance races. Skeptical about the battery at first, Suunto sure outdid themselves. I rarely ever have to charge it and when I do- the watch reminds me! I was able to wear it during my race 25 hours and accurate! I’ve used it also for cross training; cycling and hot yoga and it’s awesome- I have the worst tan line from never taking it off ;) I received this watch free for being an ambassador- but would have 100% purchased it, worth every penny!
