If you’re adding extra weight to your day, it should be on the end of your barbell or in the form of a faster mile or higher-intensity workout —but certainly not from fitness watch that feels obstructive and clunky. The new Suunto 3 Fitness, designed from minimalist approach with the lightest of intentions, won’t weigh you down as it propels you to reach new heights. A fitness coach meets health advisor, Suunto 3 Fitness gives you a 7-day workout plan, along with guided intensity-zone-based training, determined via your current fitness level. Additionally, you get 24/7 activity tracking and smartphone notifications on a sleek watch you can wear comfortably throughout the day and any on any occasion.
No, but you are able to use the GPS built-in to your phone paired with the Suunto app.
Yes, the Suunto 3 Fitness cna be paired with either iPhone or Android using the Suunto app.
If connected GPS is not used, your watch measures speed and distance using the built-in accelerometer, a motion-sensor which detects movement from your wrist. To make measurements as precise as possible, the accelerometer needs to be calibrated, because wrist movement and stride length varies from person to person.
Your watch uses two different aspects to track sleep:
The initial 7-day training plan which you see after completing the setup of your Suunto 3 Fitness is based on your personal profile (gender, age, height, weight, max HR). The initial plan will be general and does not reflect your current fitness level. To personalize your adaptive training guidance, start recording exercises. Your watch needs this data to estimate your fitness level.
Your training plan adapts to your personal needs based on the fitness level estimation and the frequency (and intensity) of your exercise – no matter if you decide to follow the suggested workouts by your training plan or record other / additional workouts. All recorded exercise will be taken into consideration.
Your watch tracks your activity throughout the day using the built-in accelerometer. Based on your wrist motion, the watch estimates your amount of activity as steps.
Some wrist movements may be interpreted as steps even if you are not walking. It is important to remember that the step count is an indicator of your overall activity. Any movement contributes to your activity.
