Via heatmaps on the Suunto app, the Suunto 5 connects active and adventurous people to a world of new routes. Heatmaps show where, and by what route, people are training, inspiring new challenges and exploration. Once synced, users can explore new tracks and routes on the watch.

Some of the world’s favourite sports apps, like Strava, TrainingPeaks and Relive, are integrated with the Suunto app so users can get more out of their sessions. Suunto adds that training achievements have never been easier to share online via multiple social media platforms.

With an RRP of £299, the Suunto 5 features stainless steel bezels, and four design variants – All Black, White, Burgundy Copper and Graphite Copper. The watch is available for pre-orders on suunto.com and will be released in select retail stores from June 4, 2019.
