There are probably one or two more variants possible based on the SPARTAN SPORT/ULTRA. I liked the BARO but have to confess at not being able to guess what will come next for the SPORT/ULTRA.
We could possibly look forward to a Suunto D watch variant of some sort – ie a Dive watch. Or maybe a “Kailash” or “Essential” version of the SPORT/ULTRA.
On the other hand, the SPARTAN TRAINER is more of a fertile hunting ground for 2018’s SPARTAN-based speculation.
SPARTAN TRAINERs for 2018?
The AMBIT3 range had the PEAK, SPORT, VERTICAL and RUN variants.
There were some differences between them (here) such as: water resistance; weight; construction materials; GLONASS; GPS recording rate; barao/altimeter; fitness test; cycling power features; temperature; tide; and pressure.
But to make a potentially long story very much shorter let’s just say that the existing SUUNTO SPARTAN TRAINER (one of the best budget triathlon watches) is the TRIATHLON-LITE watch and the next year I reckon we will see a SPARTAN SPORT marketed as a running watch. Let’s say the name SUUNTO SPARTAN TRAINER RUN is as good as any.
And on that note, dear reader, I bid you a fond MERRY CHRISTMAS or Happy Holidays, or whatever you want to call it (celebration of capitalism is my favourite). You know what I mean.

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year…………may all your 5k’s be fast ones!
🙂 you too !
Maybe a Baro version!? I am thinking about the Amber and Sandstone colour variations seen on some website.
there will prob be lots of aesthetically different versions and, as we have already seen, custom versions too
I have seen on their website the option to customize the externals a watch (Ambit), maybe they offer the same for the spartan line?
yes i think that is already there
Something like this?

I tend to extrapolate from history!! Not quite as good a super-power to have 😉
Back to the future IV
