Suunto will soon release the Suunto 5. This appears to be the next generation of the Suunto Spartan Trainer since it has the GPS “hump” at the bottom. Otherwise I’d expect it to run the same software as the 9, with features matched to hardware as in the trainer.

I promise I’ll update the monthlies this weekend! I’m currently on hols again relaxing in Lanzarote. Well, not relaxing so much as putting in hours of pool time, miles of cycling and a little bit of running. A couple of times I had a whole Olympic pool to myself too. Not just a lane, a… Read Article →

No new devices from Suunto right now but they have announced an API for third party integration. I signed up to this but have received literally no communications back so I’m not 100% sure the API actually exists. It’s a good direction though so hopefully we’ll see them actually launch and open the API soon…. Read Article →

Not a lot going on in Suunto land this month. Suunto Update Suunto Suunto Update There isn’t a lot of news this month on Suunto unless you count dive watches. Nothing on the FCC site of note this month. Elsewhere on the web, here are some recent Suunto stories: https://the5krunner.com/2018/11/19/suunto-9-glonass-more-firmware-stuff/ https://the5krunner.com/2018/11/20/sony-gps-accuracy-suunto-polar-coros/ https://gpsrumors.com/deep-dive-data-vs-information https://gpsrumors.com/deep-dive-data-vs-information-2 https://gpsrumors.com/deep-dive-structured-training-part-2 Updates… Read Article →

Please note that I didn’t put any effort into getting the screens represented as lifelike in this post so colour saturation is mainly down to the camera not the screens. All three look a little washed out in real life, even in the bright evening sunshine shown here. That said, the Vantage seems a bit… Read Article →

Introduction Now see the Vantage version of this post! In this post we’ll follow on from part three where I discussed how Garmin does it, part two where I looked at Suunto and part one where I discussed the whole background of structured training. This time we’re looking at the Polar platform. As mentioned previously… Read Article →

In this post we’ll follow on from part one where I discussed what structured training is. This time we’re looking at the platform implementations of this functionality. I used a Fenix 5/Forerunner 935, Spartan Trainer Wrist HR, and a Polar M430 for these posts. I believe all platforms are now relatively similar between models which… Read Article →

This month the main news is the Suunto bait and switch I mentioned recently where Suunto have been naughty and got reviews for their Suunto 9 Baro but all the reviewers thought it was called Suunto 9. There now is a Suunto 9 and it’s not what was reviewed, and also we’re back to Suunto’s… Read Article →

Nightmare. NIGHTMARE. Computers, in case you hadn’t noticed, are capable of a great many things. They automate so that we don’t need to do things ourselves. Like little servants, they are supposed to do what we need them to, in the way we would like them to. Watches are little computers… So, why am I… Read Article →
