    Re: Suunto Traverse

    what exactly do you gain by fusedspeed? i only ever use running for total time and distance covered and if i can look at a map of where i ran that is cool to.

    By using the inbuilt accelerometer, pace and speed are estimated accurately and still displayed even when GPS signal is poor/lost. Very important for some elite athletes (not I ).

    Re: Suunto Traverse

    Exactly it. FusedSpeed, like R-R values from heart rate (and everything based on that), like multisports (even if just for GPS / no GPS) are things for the Ambit line, not for the Traverse. What would be the use of a GPS outdoors watch that records a single log with some GPS data and some data without GPS? (Okay, while writing I was thinking that it actually *is* useful for making camp somewhere and not stopping the log but just switching to a non-GPS "activity".)

    So, what are the questions everyone's having...?

    - GPS accuracy compared to Ambit
    - How's that flashlight work?
    - Is it the same display as in the Ambits?
    - How exactly does the new map display look/work?
    - ...?

    I'm very excited by this watch and thanks to all who have contributed to this thread.

    I'd had my eye on a core for some time and was almost set on a slate essential. For the past 6 months I've been using a fitbit to track steps, sleep and resting hr - and must admit it's done a solid job. If there was a way to merge the two then the Traverse seems to best solution at the moment.

    I'm currently living in Switzerland and looking forward to testing this watch out in the mountains. I can't decide between the graphite or slate but will likely go with the slate and then a few replacement straps.

    If I may ask a few questions, would appreciate any responses:

    - does movescout displace daily activity totals, steps and calories?

    - any idea whether the traverse tracks sleep?

    - do Suunto make an external temperature sensor like the garmin tempe?

    Many thanks

    Re: Suunto Traverse

    The Suunto Traverse is now IN STOCK at REI for the following colors: Amber, Black, Graphite. The only version that REI sells that is still a preorder is the white version (seems like the least popular as well). I confirmed with a rep that preorders should ship today. Mine is expected to arrive on Monday 10/12. So if you haven't preordered and want to order an in-stock Traverse with REI's great return policy, have at it!

    Re: Suunto Traverse

    I know many might not care about the step tracking feature, but I do (I'm a fat guy trying to lose weight, haha). Couple of questions in case anyone knows...

    1) Can you review the history of steps right on the watch? For example look back at the past week and see what the results were each day.
    2) Is the step tracking data loaded into Movescount in some way? Similar to Garmin Connect, the steps tracked on the watch get pulled into Garmin Connect and you can view/analyze history.
    3) I'm too excited about the watch to think of anymore questions right now.
