Suunto launches Spartan Trainer watch


Suunto have announced the launch of the Spartan Trainer Wrist HR , a slim and lightweight multisport GPS watch aimed at the active sports enthusiast.

The Spartan Trainer is considerably smaller in size than its older siblings,delivering  training features, daily activity tracking, as well as wrist heart rate measurement by biometrics supplier Valencell. It uses GPS to measure speed, pace, distance and altitude. With 80 sport modes pre-installed, it is ready for nearly any sport, right out of the box.

The compact yet robust watch is water resistant to 50 meters, so you can take it for a swim without worry. 10 hours of battery life (up to 30 hours with power saving options) provide plenty of training time.

“With Spartan Trainer we are reaching out to active sports enthusiasts who want the features and sport expertise the Spartan family offers, but prefer a smaller, lighter watch. At a suggested retail price from 279 Euros, this is a lightweight that delivers a solid, feature-packed punch,” says Daniela Tjeder, Suunto Commercial Marketing Manager.

Coming in fine different colour versions, in addition to the wrist heart rate measurement, Spartan Trainer can be used with compatible chest heart rate sensors such as the optional Suunto Smart Sensor.
