Different athletes have different needs, so Suunto offers 2 versions of their flagship Spartan. Why pay for features you're not going to use? Loaded with more than 80 activity profiles, the Spartan Sport is ready to help push your limits. An internal GPS provides speed and distance info, and an internal accelerometer turns movement into performance enhancing data that gives you insight into what you're doing. Pair it with a compatible smartphone running the Movescount app to increase its capabilities. Transfer completed activities, get smart notifications and plan routes with heatmap information. Heatmaps are one of the coolest features, they display other Movescount user’s activities over local maps, so you can find the best trails wherever you are. The Spartan also serves as an activity tracker that tracks your steps and gives you an estimate of calories burned, and considers all your activities when calculating recovery times and tracking progress.

  • Movescount web interface allows competition and comparison of activities with other Movescount users, letting you race against friends from all over the world.
  • Movescount shares your metrics with coaches and personal trainers, opening up a whole world of digital training plans and tips.
  • Track your personal bests by sport to show progress trends for activities like running, cycling, swimming to reveal trends and to gauge the effectiveness of your training.
  • 24/7 activity tracking provides a daily step goal and estimate of calories burnt (precise calorie consumption needs a not included heart rate monitor to be truly accurate).
  • Loaded with 80 different sport modes, there is a sport specific mode for nearly every activity.
  • Breadcrumb style navigation tracks your route, which you can overlay in a variety of map apps. You can even download other routes from Movescount.
  • Compatible with smartphones featuring Bluetooth 4.0 (iPhone 4s or higher, and Android 4.3-6).
