New Suunto Firmware

Suunto 5 Review appNew firmware updates for all the latest Suunto watches are announced today. There is a staged rollout but most of you should be able to get them now.

There is nothing that particularly stands out other than Galileo support being added for the Suunto 9. We’ve know for a long time that the Sony GPS chip contains Galileo support so this is no big surprise to see that Suunto have enabled it for us to use. I have some tentative plans to test Galileo BUT not for a while #BusyBusy.

There is also a new Triathlon Race with Power sport profile which shows power on the bike leg. I’m not sure if you can also show running power (I think NOT) in the run leg and these profiles are not customisable. This sport profile WAS available a couple of weeks ago on the Suunto 5 (review ed here). I’m still somewhat amazed that Suunto support sport profiles like cheerleading but do not support duathlon, pool triathlon, duathlon brick or cross triathlon. FYI: Triathlon mode customisation IS on the roadmap for future inclusion, no date given (Source: Suunto).

Details furhter below after the pretty picture. Everyone loves a pretty picture.
