    SUUNTO 9

    Don't like the non all black line, the silver lines. It would be much better in an all black design and of course less bulky! Why is it called "9"?

    yeah seems like an advanced spartan:
    same weight 81g, better battery life & optical HR!

    Seems like they want to catch up with the Fenix, hardware wise (OHR & battery life)

    edit:
    1) FusedTrack™ seems interesting. Garmin did something similar by adding a Gyroscope, never heard people using it (was only usind in Ultra_GPS_mode)
    2) OHR: i'm really looking forward to the OHR results/tests. 81g is pretty heavy (like F5, F5X and they struggle). You need to be in the 50g range to get good results (Trainer Wrist HR / FR935).

    Will wait until they release a watch with dual-frequency GPS.

    Both cost 599 (euro) & 649 (for the HR-Belt version). The only difference really is the colour (no Mineral/Sapphire versions)

    In the swiss website the black is less expensier by 60€. Strange...

    DCR (hands on): https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2018/06/...gps-watch.html

    quote: This line is designed to be the successor to the Suunto Spartan Ultra range of GPS watches, which is the most expensive offering Suunto has in their stable.

    things that stand out for me:
    – Added FusedTrack: Ability to get GPS tracks without GPS data (seriously, and seriously cool)
    – Switched GPS chipset providers from SIRF to Sony

    Yep the OHR is unchanged from the BARO too.
    - Suunto are excited by the battery modes
    - Suunto are also playing on the certifications for extreme conditions

    My take-out is that they have looked quite closely at certain target markets and are really trying to hone their offering and marketing accordingly. Personally I'm not in one of their target markets but what they are doing looks reasoanble.

    I had an intersting 100 mile trail ride with mine over the weekend..me, my bike and my cycling shoes all seemed to fare far worse than the Suunto 9 , which escaped unhurt.
