Suunto Announces New 5 Peak Smartwatch

Building on the success of its recently unveiled 9 Peak, Suunto has announced the launch of its lightweight 5 Peak smartwatch that’s aimed at outdoor fitness lovers who are looking for a light, compact, durable and long-lasting partner to guide them towards reaching their fitness goals at a reasonable price. 

The 5 Peak is an evolution of the older Suunto 5 model, boasting a 41% reduction in weight over its predecessor thanks to the elimination of the older model’s GPS nose, while offering up to 100 hours of battery life, handy music controls, over the air software updates and a selection of easily changeable accessory straps to suit individual style. 

“Made entirely in Finland, our designers in Helsinki created this watch for people active in the outdoors who want to explore new terrain and are committed to achieving personal fitness goals safely and confidently. Whether for running, hiking, walking, cycling or trail running, the Suunto 5 Peak’s GPS navigation features – including turn by turn navigation – ensure users can follow a route there and back again without fear of going off path or getting lost. The watch’s sunrise and sunset alarms tell users exactly how much daylight they have to play with,” boasts Suunto. 

Additionally, combined with the Suunto app and its heat and 3D maps, users can easily discover popular routes, or plan their own, utilizing a number of third-party apps and services that are available to them. 

“There’s no doubt in my mind that the Suunto 5 Peak is going to perform strongly given its ultra-light weight and sleek design, rich functionality, combined with its accessible price point,” says Heikki Norta, President, Suunto.That’s what we set out to achieve when we sat down to design this watch and I believe consumers will agree we haven’t come up short. With this watch they are ready for their next adventure.”

Key Features:

  • Weighs in at only 39 grams
  • Music controls on the watch
  • Three battery modes: Performance (20 hours), Endurance (40 hours) or Tour (up to 100 hours). In Time Mode, the watch lasts up to 10 days with a single charge
  • 80+ sport modes to choose from or customize your own in Suunto app
  • The ability to create routes, and find routes for 20 different sports via heatmaps in Suunto app

  • Wrist-based heartrate
  • The watch offers adaptive training guidance, tracks steps, calories, and recovery and measures sleep quality and duration
  • Comes with the new Burner feature: calculates the grams of fat and carbohydrates burned while exercising

Like all Suunto watches, the 5 Peak was subjected to extreme testing and has been built to withstand all weather conditions and is water resistant up to 30 meters, while its durable stainless-steel bezel and polyamide lens ensures the watch serves as a long-term training partner, regardless of the conditions. Moreover, with the 5 Peak, buyers have plenty of options to choose from in terms of style such as six strap colors to choose from including Suunto’s first strap made with waste materials left over in strap production. If that’s not enough, there are nine other compatible accessory straps to choose from.
