There’s nothing like a little friendly competition with yourself (and the device on your wrist), but juggling sports with a busy lifestyle can be difficult. You need both the mental and physical stamina, plus some killer fitness tech that’ll not only keep you motivated but be ready to go when you are. The good news is: the magic you need actually exists.

Meet the Suunto 7

While there are countless fitness trackers and smartwatches on the market, we’ve found that modern women need the best cutting-edge sports expertise, but also the latest smartwatch features. **In walks the new Suunto 7** — made for outdoor adventure, but also does so much more than record your workouts.

Here’s why you’ll want it…

Accurately tracks sport activities

All the sports features of Suunto 7 are literally just one click away. Track your exercise accurately with 70+ sports modes, GPS and wrist heart rate sensor. Easily share your results in the Suunto app or on major sport services like Strava, Endomondo and TrainingPeaks. The watch’s detailed insights will help you train smarter — pushing you closer to reaching your goals. You can also connect your headset to your phone and control music from your wrist while exercising.

Inspires you to explore

This watch is made to help you discover the world around you with its free offline maps giving you terrain details, trails and contour lines. It is easy to glance the maps at any time, and they are always one swipe away during exercise. Built-in heatmaps for 15 activities including running, swimming, and cycling show you the most popular routes so you can train where others have trained or choose to stay away from the beaten track. Local offline maps and heatmaps will be downloaded automatically when you’re connected to Wi-Fi and charging. You can also manually select the map of your preferred location to be downloaded. With offline maps you’ll always find your way and know the best training routes, even when you leave your phone behind or don’t have network connectivity.

Makes life easier

When you’re not working out, you want convenient smartwatch features from a name you can trust. Suunto 7 is powered with Wear OS by Google, making this the smartest sports watch yet. Be informed by your favourite apps, see your next meeting or to-do list, easily check calls and quickly view incoming messages from your watch. Equipped with a faster, more secure way to pay from Google Pay™, activity tracking from Google Fit™, smart help from the Google Assistant and thousands of apps on Google Play.*

Always ready for adventure

Suunto 7 is designed and tested in Finland with the quality that Suunto is known for. Shock, water, and dirtproof. It has physical buttons so you can use it with gloves on and its extremely bright high-resolution touch screen is protected with scratch-resistant Gorilla® Glass. Suunto 7’s battery will give you a full day of smartwatch use and still have enough juice left for your daily workout. Alternatively, it can provide up to 48 hours of smartwatch use or up to 12 hours in GPS tracking mode.*

Gets better each day

With Wi-Fi connectivity, software updates are automatic so your watch is always up to date and has the latest features. Extend watch functionalities with your favourite apps on Google Play and change the look of your watch with different watch faces and interchangeable straps, to match your OOTD.
