Suunto 7

Suunto 7 – it’s here.

Suunto 7 Announced The Suunto 7 is announced today. There are ZERO genuine surprises that it is number ‘7’ in the current Suunto range, however, the BIG surprise to most of you will be that this is a WearOS watch. Most people expected the Suunto 7 to be a direct update of the Suunto Spartan…

STRAVA Relative Effort on Suunto

Polar has just announced that Polar H10 strap owners can now get real-time running feedback on their running form (skiing too). First up, use Polar BEAT to double-check that you have set your H10 to be able to broadcast two lots of BLE signals. That way you can still use it with your running watch+H10…

945 Update, STRYD Update

This arrived today (image to right) and I’m not entirely sure what the updates are to my 945 sensor hub and BLE/BL/ANT+. I’m aware that the 945 doesn’t always find paired devices properly, maybe it fixes that? It wasn’t broken on the 935 yet Garmin seems to have to repeatedly fix this for the 945.…

First up, a share price jump like this really does show that Garmin exceeded analysts’ expectations and it does not represent a jump…

Suunto 9 gets Firstbeat

Some great news for Suunto 9 owners. There should be a firmware release (v2.9.42) around about NOW which adds some sweet new features to the Suunto 9, I’m pretty certain it will be the same for BARO and non-BARO versions alike. The Suunto 9 is, strangely, playing catch up with the Firstbeat features that are…
