The watch has many different sensors

All sports watches have GPS, a rangefinder, and a calorimeter, but the Suunto Spartan Sports Wrist HR Baro-Amber does have a lot of sensors. The watch also has an altimeter, a barometer and a temperature gauge: three sensors that have virtually no sports watch. You can also make lots of interesting measurements with this watch from Suunto.

The watch can withstand a knock

The Suunto Spartan Sports Wrist HR Baro-Amber is not only shock-resistant but can also be used in the water. In fact, you can go up to 100 meters deep into the water with this sports watch. Most other sports watches have a maximum depth of 50 meters. For swimmers and divers, the Suunto Spartan Sports Wrist HR Baro Amber is definitely a good watch.

The watch is multi-use

The Suunto Spartan Sports Wrist HR Baro-Amber comes standard with eighty preset sports. This means that you can use the watch for eighty different sports. Because the watch is also good against a punch, the sports watch is certainly multi-usable.

The negatives of the sports watch

The Suunto sports watch has some important advantages, but also a few downsides. The downsides of the sports watch are briefly described below.

The watch is pricey

The Suunto Spartan HR HR Baro-Amber is not cheap, especially if you compare the price of the watch with the prices of other sports watches. This is not for nothing, because this sports watch simply has many more functions than other sports watches. So you definitely get value for money when you buy this watch. However, due to the high price, the watch is not interesting for everyone.

The watch is pretty graceless

Many sports watches are not only practical but also look stylish. This is slightly less the case with the Suunto Spartan Sports Wrist HR Baro-Amber. If we look at the size and weight of the watch, we see that the sports watch is quite large, bulky and heavy. As a sports watch, the Suunto Spartan Sports Wrist HR Baro-Amber works fine, but you do not wear this watch out of exercise so quickly. In addition, the strap of the watch has a striking color that not everyone will stand.

Conclusion

The Suunto Spartan Sports Wrist HR Baro-Amber is a high-quality sport watch with many different functions. Especially when you practice many different sports, this watch is really something for you. The sports watch supports standard eighty different sports. The watch also has many different sensors, including the standard GPS tracker and the heart rate sensor and some unique sensors such as the temperature gauge and the altimeter. The watch is more expensive than other sports watches, but this is simply because the watch has more features. Are you looking for an extremely complete watch and are you prepared to pay a little more, then the Suunto Spartan Sports Wrist HR Baro-Amber is definitely for you.

A disadvantage of the Suunto Spartan Sports Wrist HR Baro-Amber is that the watch does not look so stylish. The watch is quite large, clumsy and heavy and therefore less suitable as a watch for work. Most people who buy this watch really use the watch as a sports watch and do not wear it in everyday life. This is also due to the striking band of the watch, which not everyone will like. If you find the practical advantages of the watch more important than the look of the watch, then the Suunto Spartan Sports Wrist HR Baro-Amber is definitely for you. The watch is perhaps less stylish than other watches, but definitely a good purchase for the enthusiastic athlete.
