The Finnish stalwart has built on the predecessor, unveiling the Suunto 9 Peak Pro as their most powerful and best performing GPS multisport watch yet.
The Suunto 9 Peak Pro arrives with an ultra thin and timeless design, combining comprehensive GPS tracking capabilities with outstanding battery life and easy to use interface.
Building on the award-winning design of the Suunto 9 Peak, the new iteration of the Suunto 9 Peak Pro is extremely tough, yet one of the thinnest (10.8 mm) and lightest GPS sport watches in its class. It blends in everywhere, suits smaller wrists and can handle any environment.
“The Suunto 9 Peak Pro is engineered with a new, more powerful chipset architecture that boosts the performance to a new level while having the best-in-class battery life compared to similar-sized products on the market,” says Damian Commane, Head of Suunto ANZ. “While extending our deep heritage in sports watches and precision instruments, the Suunto 9 Peak Pro’s comprehensive tracking capabilities and sleek design has allowed us to deliver our most premium product yet.”
The Suunto 9 Peak Pro offers the best battery life of any Suunto watch yet, with three battery modes: Performance, Endurance and Tour. The battery lasts for 21 days in daily use before requiring charge, 40 h in Performance mode, 70 h in Endurance mode and 300 h in Tour mode. The Suunto 9 Peak Pro can connect with up to four satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BEIDOU) and up to 32 individual satellites simultaneously. This results in greater accuracy when exercising in challenging GPS conditions, like below tall buildings or deep mountain valleys.
As an extension of Suunto’s leadership in dive watch manufacturing, Suunto 9 Peak’s new watersport modes for snorkeling and mermaiding allows users to follow essential data such as depth, dive time and water temperature under the surface down to 10 meters.
Combined with the Suunto app and a huge array of partner services, the Suunto 9 Peak Pro gives users a plethora of route finding options, turn-by-turn guidance and advanced training tools. Discovering and creating routes is easy with Suunto app’s heatmaps, 3D maps and road surface map layers.
Also new to the Suunto app, which is now compatible with iPad and Android tablets, users can pre-structure their workouts and follow the plan during a session. The Suunto app also offers a new avalanche map layer that indicates areas of avalanche danger, making it easier to plan safe alpine trips. On returning from an adventure, users can share their trip with friends and family as a 3D animation.
