No more excuses.
It's easy to make excuses as to why you're not reaching your exercise goals and outdoor ambitions, whether you're overworked or simply not using your free time wisely. Realizing the outdoor athlete and exercise enthusiast could use a bit of reassurance along the way, Suunto created the Spartan Sport Wrist Heart Rate Monitor Metal to motivate you along your journey to become a stronger athlete, regardless if you're trying to squeeze in a few extra steps between answering office emails or you're training for that grueling marathon this upcoming spring. This tech-savvy sport watch combines advanced GPS and heart rate tracking with a polished metal bezel that seamlessly melds into your daily wardrobe without being a bulky monstrosity that solely belongs on the mountain or in the gym.
You'll find it's an excellent addition to your daily hustle with 24/7 activity tracking monitoring your steps throughout the day, sleep duration overnight, daily resting heart rate to notice your overall fitness level, as well as estimated calories burned. When it's time to hit the gym, the wrist-based heart rate monitor does an excellent job of estimating your overall heart rate with in-depth graphs, heart rate zones, and on-screen indicators depicting just how much effort you're putting into your workout. And because it's meant for life beyond the confines of indoor gyms, the watch's built-in GPS/GLONASS receiver not only tracks your elapsed distance outdoors, but it provides handy indicators of your route, so you can track your way back to the car or discover new trails in the mountains and forests surrounding your city.
One of the coolest things about Suunto Watches is the extensive support you'll receive with Suunto's Movescount app that's available for Android, iOS (i.e. iPhone/iPad), Mac, and desktop PCs, which allows you to upload more than 80 different sport modes, as well as view all your exercise data and metrics on your mobile device or computer. Bluetooth Smart wirelessly feeds data to your mobile device, so you won't have to necessarily plug your watch into a computer. And when it's time to recharge your watch, simply plug it into any USB port for rapid charging with the included USB cable.

- Q & A
great watch, just needs a lil patience!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This watch is like a great life partner. Looks sexy as hell right from the start, has a little bit of growing pains, but ultimately something you can't live without!
My review is broken down into what I feel are the four most important aspects of this(most activity) watch.
Data accuracy: I am a huge data junky, so I compared this with my phone as well as my brother-in-laws ambit 3 at the same time for several hikes. The growing pains for me was that the watch didn't seem to have the most accurate altitude or mileage...at first. But it literally seemed to learn as time went by. By the 4-5 use, it was right on par with my brothers watch and he has baro on his. Mileage became more accurate as well. Now it has been on point ever since.
Battery life: It always lasted 9.5-10 hours using all the bells and whistles. At first it would die at 30% battery remaining, but still giving me 10 hours of use. Again, growing pain, got better with time. Now the percentage goes down quicker, but is just more accurate with remaining juice. I have logged 30+ activities and battery is great! If you do simple things like auto screen turn off and low color mode you can get closer to 11-11.5 hours on the highest gps accuracy mode.
HR Monitor: Is as good as a wrist monitor can be. I used this compared against an apple watch series 3, tomtom multi sport and orangetheory monitor while exercising. It was equal to or better than all of them. It was almost beat for beat equal to orangetheory monitor.
Syncing: the app sync perfect for me(one time had problems and had to re-connect the watch to the phone which takes 45 seconds, so not a big deal), all you have to do is open the app. Mobile app isn't great for what you can do, but the computer customization is awesome and super useful. Instantly transfers data to strava without any prompting(because lets be honest, if its not on strava...it didn't happen).
Full disclosure: Never had a garmin, so i can't say how this compares to the "creme de la creme" but I have been super happy. That being said, I also started using sram force when it first came out and never road campy...so sometimes you don't have to spend the most to get a great piece of gear...
Thanks for reading this novel, have a great day!
Not what it's cracked up to be.
Unfortunately this watch does not connect and transfer all the data it collects. I've spent more time (then I'd like to admit) trying to use the apps it boasts connecting to. If it connects to the app it won't auto sync or transfer steps. I've even tried third-party intermediate apps to transfer data between with no success. After digging deeper I determined that the steps (and heart rate) were just not going to be moved to any app whatsoever.
