Suunto has introduced its long-awaited next generation sportswatch called the Suunto 7, featuring Wear OS by Google and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100 Platform in a new streamlined interface.
Heikki Norta, chief digital officer and president of connected devices and digital services at Amer Sports Corporation, Suunto’s parent company, said, “whether sport is your passion or your lunch-hour escape, we live in a blended life that demands a technology partner who does not sacrifice functionality in sport or everyday use. Suunto set out to overcome the challenge of designing a smart watch with robust sports watch features, and vice versa, in order to help users get the most out of both their sports and their busy lives. Combining Suunto’s decades worth of versatile sports and outdoor expertise with the helpful smartwatch features from Wear OS by Google provides an incredible opportunity for us to inspire new and expanding audiences to explore their surroundings, wherever those adventures might take them.”
The new Suunto 7 boasts new vivid, full-color offline outdoor maps, which enable wearers to follow their location on-the-go with an ultra-bright OLED touch-sensitive display, as well as wrist-based control of music playlists for convenience on the go. In addition, the Suunto 7 provides more than 70 sport modes from running and cycling to skiing and yoga, along with a battery life to support a full day of active use and still have enough power left for daily workouts including accurate exercise measurement with wrist-based heartrate tracking, barometer for elevation readings and training insights. Moreover, wearers can follow their exercises and trends via the Suunto app and connect with third party training platforms such as Strava.
Additionally, Suunto’s integration of Wear OS by Google delivers proactive and personalized help from Google Assistant, secure payment options with Google Pay, and personalized coaching from Google Fit, while thousands of additional apps are available on the Google Play app store.
“The Suunto 7, based on our advanced Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform, is the first smartwatch to deploy the dedicated Sports experience mode with up to 12 hours with continuous GPS tracking or up to 48 hours in daily use enabled by our platform,” said Pankaj Kedia, Head of Qualcomm Wearables. “We are delighted to be collaborating with Suunto to combine the best of sports, style, and smarts in this powerful smartwatch designed for the casual athletes.”
The Suunto 7 is designed and tested in Finland to survive the toughest of conditions and adventures and to withstand shock, water and dirt with a Gorilla Glass screen.
The Suunto 7 is available for pre-orders at www.suunto.com and select retail partners on January 31, including REI, Amazon, CleverTraining.com, and Suunto.com.
