Suunto 5 Peak: the new Suunto watch has GPS and is focused on the most athletic users

After the launch of the Suunto 9 Peak early last year, Suunto, the company specializing in watches of a sporty nature, has just introduced a little version. We are talking about the Suunto 5 Peak, a smartwatch that, although, it does not have the same smart capabilities as other more popular devices, is oriented almost entirely to the most sporty users.

We will know it better later, but not before commenting that the watch can be pre-ordered from January 20 on the company’s website. It will be priced at $329 / €299. That said, let’s see what the watch has to offer.

Minimalist and sporty

Suunto 5 Peak

Following the Suunto 9 Peak, the Suunto 5 Peak maintains a minimalist design, simple and with good construction materials. The bezel is made of stainless steel, the lens of polyamide, and the case of glass fiber reinforced polyamide. The case is 43 millimeters in size and 12.9 millimeters thick. The strap, for its part, is made of silicone of 22 millimeters and 130-210 mm long.

On the body, five buttons can be used to interact with the watch, although, we are used to smartwatches having a touchscreen, the Suunto 5 Peak does not. It mounts a 1.1-inch LED panel with 218 x 218 pixels resolution that, at least on paper, should be sufficient.

Suunto has not disclosed the capacity of the watch’s battery but claims that it will last up to ten days in time mode (telling the time). If the 24/7 metrics logging and notifications are activated, the battery life will drop to seven days. If the GPS is used for training, depending on the mode, we will have between 20 and 100 hours of autonomy. The integrated GPS chip is compatible with the main satellite constellations.

Among the functions integrated into the operating system, there are FusedSpeed (combines GPS and acceleration sensor to better measure speed), FusedTrack (combines GPS and motion sensors to track exercise when the battery is low), Snap to Route (adjust the route to the activity we are going to do) and Ghost Runner (set the desired pace and compare your distance to a “ghost runner”).

Something interesting and also eye-catching is the turn-by-turn navigation via GPS. This is particularly useful when we do routes, as it will allow us to continue the path without having to look at the map and receive the instructions from the watch. The problem is that there are no maps integrated into the smartwatch.

In terms of sports, it has more than 80 profiles, water resistance, automatic training plan for seven days. All customizable, as has become normal in the company’s watches.
