Why We Like The 7 Sport Watch
The Suunto 7 balances our busy lives with the next big outdoor adventure, or just getting out for a run at the very least. With a battery life of up to 2 days in Smartwatch use and up to 12 hours in Training Mode with GPS, and over seventy different sport modes, this watch keeps track of our daily performance not only when we're logging miles on mountaintops, but also during the casual moments in between grand adventures.
When we're miles from home, and the watch notices that it's running low on juice, it will automatically suggest switching to another training mode to preserve battery life, helping it finish out the run and recording data the whole way. It has 12 hours of battery life in GPS mode, 12 hours in sport mode, and a whopping two days in smartphone mode. That same intelligent technology keeps track of our activity history and sends reminders to charge up when it thinks we're headed out on a run soon, ensuring that we never get stuck out on the trail without training data. And when we get home, we can easily share our times and miles on the Suunto app and several other popular, third-party apps. The latest firmware redesign includes a low-power always-on display, so our training metrics are visible without draining the watch battery.
Suunto pushes its navigation system into overdrive by adding Heatmaps for over 15 sporting activities that use mapped routes like cycling, running, and hiking. Tap into and check out the more popular routes or bite off a little less of the unknown to perhaps find some hidden gems. Plus, with route navigation, we can even create our own route—just sync the route to the watch and off we go. With route navigation on our watch, we always find our way.
One of the most innovative parts of the Suunto 7 is using both GPS and movement data to preserve battery life and keep accurate tracking. GPS is a big drain on batteries, so when batteries start to drain, the GPS signal is often reduced to preserve juice, resulting in incorrect readings. The Suunto 7 gets around this problem by using movement data to fill in the gaps when GPS is limited, giving us an accurate distance reading that doesn't cause the battery to sputter out halfway through a run.
