For some time we have been receiving news by email, from the Finnish brand Suunto, of the Spartan Collection, and now more specifically the new Suunto Spartan Sport. The first thing than we see when entering the website, are the following indications
The Suunto Spartan solution for athletic and adventure multisport comprises of Suunto Spartan GPS watches, renewed Suunto Movescount.com and mobile smart phone application for iPhone & Android (Android availability by the end of September)
The first thing that strikes us is the color touch screen available, at first glance, seems to give great visibility. Although all our reviews are without having tasted the clock, so just read.
We are also informed that we can submerge up to 100 meters, although I do not think I can get for the moment to that depth, and a battery life of up to 26 hours (in training mode), although the model sport, are 16 hours. And are made with stainless steel bezel and mineral glass crystal.
On the issue of navigation, we are informed that you have view path as well as digital compass, as provided Suunto Ambit 3 sport, nor have the barometric sensor, if you have the Spartan Ultra, although we have altitude data provided by the GPS
This watch is multisport with the possibility to choose between 80 modes sport. The Spartan watches provide specific parameters for each sport and numerous ways to display them while training for sports such as running, cycling, swimming, triathlon and various adventure sports like hiking or ski touring. The screens for each particular sport are designed carefully and provide you with accurate and relevant information about your sport.
They also advertise that plan to release a version with a pulse sensor on the wrist before Christmas (and we can to ask about it to Suunto Claus?), to free us from the band pulse than so many problems gives me with the Ambit 3 Sport.
Training Insights function, which will be present in both the clock and Movescount allow you to follow your training load, rest and recovery and progress, and help you plan your next training. The watch monitors your activity 24/7 providing daily and weekly activity summaries along with training history. To follow your progress, (available from autumn this year 2016). Personal records can be based on duration, altitude and power cycling (as the fastest 5k or more power cycling for 20 minutes).
And in autumn 2016 update will also be available a complete set of tools and analysis for more detailed information on your training load, progress, rest and recovery, or how to create training plans.
Also you are now giving more importance to all social groups, compare heat maps that give information on routes most used by people, but all this is available to all people who use Movescount, for now, regardless of the type of Suunto watch you have.
Y en la actualización de otoño de 2016, también estará disponible un conjunto completo de herramientas y análisis para obtener información más detallada sobre tu carga de entrenamiento, progreso, descanso y recuperación, o sobre cómo crear planes de entrenamiento.
También ahora se le da más importancia a todo lo social, grupos, comparativas, mapas de calor, que dan información sobre rutas más usadas por gente, pero todo esto es disponible para toda la gente que use movescount, por ahora, independientemente del tipo de reloj de suunto que tengas.
Personally, the clock in design has a rather more stylish design than Suunto Ambit 3 Sport, and it seems quite manageable, and I hope it will be very comfortable to use the touch screen, and its color display, than give us an ease of reading. So at first and if it were not for the price, I would it
