Trainer Wrist HR – new GPS-series Suunto Spartan
The famous manufacturer of sports watches Suunto presents a new model that will enter the Spartan line and will be called Trainer Wrist HR.
As can be seen from the name and positioning, this model claims to be a “personal electronic trainer” status. Unlike earlier watches of the series, Spartan Trainer Wrist HR will be packaged in a more slim and comfortable body made of lightweight fibrous polyamide, saving valuable grams. The functions of the device from such a “slimming” should not suffer: the clock is convenient for training, and for use in the daily routine.
Athletes will note the waterproof watch case, thanks to which in the Trainer Wrist HR you can not just swim, but also dive to a depth of 50 meters (however, for a short while and without fanaticism – the manufacturer warns that one should not experience the stability of protection). Various professional peripherals can be connected to the device – for example, chest pulse meters (although there is also built-in, based on the optical Valencell sensor). If you often practice exercises on the simulators, swimming, running, riding a bicycle, then you will have enough opportunities for sensors that recognize movement. The software of the clock itself will calculate the activity, calorie consumption and duration of training. Batteries last for 10 hours in training mode and for several days – in daily mode.
The usual features of watches, of course, are more modest. The display has a record resolution of 218 pixels in diameter. The operating system is proprietary, but the clock is compatible with iOS and Android, as well as Strava, MapMyFitness and other sports services.
Suunto Spartan Trainer Wrist HR watches are available in five colors. Bezel can be silver, gold, black and so on. Universal dimensions (weight 56 grams, case diameter 46 mm, thickness 15.7 mm) will allow anyone of any sex and age to find the best option for themselves.
The cost of the device (depending on the modification) will be from 280 to 330 euros. By the end of August, all options will be available, except exclusive gold and silver – their release is postponed for September.
