Suunto Vertical is also an excellent companion for everyday training. From running to cross-country-skiing, over 95 sports models are loaded onto each watch. Calculated based on heart rate variability, you can receive personalised feedback on your training load, progress and recovery. This way you know when to train and when to let your body rest. For more information, you can follow your efforts in the Training Zone section of the Suunto app or use coaching tools such as TrainingPeaks.

The All-New Suunto Vertical Solar Watches

The new Suunto Vertical watches are available in three colour pathways: all black (SS050978000), canyon (SS050987000) and sand (SS050986000). Each model features a glass fibre-reinforced polyamide case and a stainless steel bezel. In addition, each watch has a vivid 1.4″ touchscreen that adds convenience and ease like never before. A strong sapphire crystal protects the display, and to ensure optimal durability the watches are tested according to military standards. Suunto Vertical Solar watches are also able to withstand temperatures between -20°C and +55°C; they can be worn in almost any environment that the human body can withstand. To guarantee comfort, each watch features a silicone strap with holes. The holes allow your skin to easily breathe and any water to easily pass through.

Even with the bright LED display, you can still enjoy impressive battery life. Thanks to solar charging capabilities, each colour variant’s battery life will last up to 85 hours in the most accurate GPS setting and up to 60 days in daily mode. Some solar variants can even go up to one year without charging! Moreover, each watch is water-resistant up to 100 metres.
