Suunto 9 Baro - Unisex


See available altimeter barometer watches


Whether you're racing an ultra or trying to beat your PB, Suunto's 9 Baro has the power to be with you every step of the way. Intelligent power management software tracks your battery’s status at all times. Modes and settings are easily changed, giving you enough power for the last kilometer or the next 50. One key reason that Suunto is able to achieve these runtimes is its FusedTrack system. Data from the onboard sensors is combined with limited GPS readings (1 every 1 to 2 minutes), creating a near–GPS-quality track without needing to constantly power the GPS. Preloaded with more than 80 activity profiles, the 9 series is ready for any sport. The optical heart rate monitor adds an extra layer of precision to your training. Pair your watch with a compatible smartphone running the Movescount app, and the 9 Baro gains a whole new feature set. Movescount lets you transfer activities, receive notifications, plan routes using heatmaps, share activities to your social channels, and more. Heatmaps are one of Suunto’s coolest features – they display other Movescount users' activities over local maps, making it easier to find the best runs, rides, trails or swims. Full activity tracking features record your steps and calories, as well as monitor the quality of your sleep, for a 24/7 picture of performance the 9 Baro uses to calculate your recovery times and track your progress.

  • Equipped with Valencell’s optical heart rate monitor (version 1.2), which provides reliable constant heart rate data and allows you to train without a chest strap
  • Optical heart rate sensors measure changes in blood volume under the skin, and work best when worn snugly, 1 to 3 finger-widths above your wrist bone
  • Spot check your heart rate at any point and receive a graph of 10 minutes’ or 12 hours’ worth of heart rate data. During an activity, heart rate data is collected every second
  • FusedTrack™ uses data from the internal sensors to plot your route between GPS points. By combining the data, you get a track that mirrors your actual track, while only checking into GPS once or twice a minute. All of that means a greatly increased battery life. Currently only works for running and trail running, with open water swimming in the works
  • FusedAlti™ uses a combination of GPS and barometric data to extrapolate the most accurate altitude possible
  • FusedSpeed™ combines GPS and accelerometer data to provide a more stable running pace
