Suunto Fitness Watches

LISTING ORDER >> I have tried to list the best & most popular Suunto watches first. Obsolete products are listed towards the END

Suunto have a comprehensive range of GPS watches for outdoor sports enthusiasts. Their top of the range sports watches are the Suunto Spartan models. The Spartan replaced the popular Ambit which reached it's THIRD generation with the excellent Suunto Ambit3 Sport (still highly recommended)

Premium GPS Watch Range

The Suunto heart rate monitor watch range is going through a real shake up (Oct 2016). Suunto released the Spartan range in October 2016 and expect to follow it up with some innovative new training watches before the end of 2016. Suunto's area of specialist expertise is the outdoor adventure / multisport / pro athlete market.  The must have GPS sports watches for Runners, MultiSport, Orienteers and Adventure racers.

What's the best Suunto Heart Rate Monitor?

For 80% of our customers after a rough & tough GPS sports watch with heart rate, essential navigation and 24/7 activity tracking I should be recommending the Suunto Spartan Sport. It's the latest Suunto watch from a long line of  successful sports monitors. It also has the ability to support multisport athletes, people who run, bike, swim and much more, sometimes in the same training session. The Spartan Sport has been designed for triathlon and multisport racers. However, unfortunately, the Ambit 3 Sport is currently the better watch, until the Spartan is fully upgraded.

    Suunto Spartan Ultra

    Top 3 Outdoor Adventure

    The best GPS outdoor adventure / ABC /multisport watch of 2015/2016 was the Suunto Ambit3 Peak. That has now been replaced with the Suunto Spartan Ultra with high colour touchscreen display. Like the slightly less functional Spartan Sport the Ultra is a top quality GPS multisport watch designed with ULTRA Triathlon and other ultra endurance events in mind ....

    Suunto Ambit3 Sport

    REPLACED by Spartan Sport

    I still regard this product as a top performer. If you don't need the barometric weather functionality of the Ambit3 Peak, but you still want MultiSport support, consider the Ambit3 Sport. Available in several colours including blue, coral, black, white and sapphire. The Suunto Ambit3 Sport is the perfect watch for Triathlon  even though it's been sidelined by the Spartan....

    Suunto Ambit3 Peak

    REPLACED by Spartan Ultra

    I still highly rate the Ambit 3 Peak and would still by one at the right price. The Ambit3 Peak has the same single log for multisport sessions, i.e. Swim, Bike and Run data all in ONE FILE. Access to thousands of APPS from the Movescount.com website. Sport displays configurable via Smartphone connection. And best of all... a 30 hour GPS battery life ....

    Suunto M2

    The Suunto M2 comes with the COMFORT style chest strap. The M2 is the watch for easy monitoring of training heart rate and calories burnt. Fairly old now (released approx 2012) but still a great fitness watch for people who want a traditional chest strap heart rate monitor to keep an eye on training intensity and calories burnt ....

    Suunto M1

    Great looks and essential features only. The Suunto M1 is a traditional watch style heart rate monitor that will give accurate heart rate based calories burnt information plus usual watch features.

    For those wanted to train SMART it also features 3 x heart rate training zones.

    Suunto M5

    A bit old now, but still an attractive & functional chest strap style heart rate monitor. The downside to the Suunto M5 is that it doesn't have a built-in GPS. If you want speed and distance you need to use the FOOT POD ... A great fitness watch for serious runners when it came out but finding it hard to compete with Polar M400 and Forerunner 235 now ....

    Suunto Quest

    I have a similar comment for the Suunto Quest as I do for the Suunto M5 ... unfortunately it's a bit beyond it's sell by date with no built-in GPS and no smartphone connection. However, if you want a traditional heart rate monitor with technical feedback and self change CR2032 lithium batteries in watch and HRM strap, then it's still a competent heart rate monitor ...

    Suunto Ambit2 R

    REPLACED by Spartan Sport

    The Ambit2 R has been replaced by the Ambit 3 Run and more recently by the Spartan Sport. If it's a bargain you're after then it's still a good GPS runners watch but it is lacking in the Bluetooth syncronisation and activity tracking features of the newer models. This model should be compared to other legacy products like the Garmin Forernner 220.

    With features such as 12 hour GPS battery life, multisport mode, FREE downloadable APPS plus GPS navigation including back to start, the Ambit2 S is a perfect training partner for the outdoor exerciser who also competes in triathlon / multisport. Although replaced by the Ambit3 Sport and more recently the Spartan Sport the Ambit2 S still offers solid functionality for those NOT interested in smartphone connectivity or activity tracking ...

  • A Brief History…

    It all started in 1996. As a sports science student I wanted to promote the use of Heart Rate Monitors in exercise. The business went online in 1999. In 14 years we sold HRM's to over 300,000 customers.

    After a short retail back we're now back with the new online store selling ONLY Polar. We still offer impartial advice & test other heart rate monitor brands. Our aim however, is to introduce you to Polar's products as an alternative to Garmin, Fitbit, Suunto or TomTom.
