    Re. "pace and HR at the same time", @spookyeng:

    Yes, you can get it to do that. Via the gear customization for the sports modes, basically the same way it would work with the sports modes of an Ambit.

    Thanks for the help, it is much appreciated! Put another sport mode in Movescount and good to go. Never owned a Ambit, wish I would have, but super excited about the Traverse!

    Now if I could figure out how to safely remove the strap, I will be in business. I have a lot of 24mm NATO straps that I would like to put on it. The stock strap is super comfortable and would like to get a couple more, but even if I want to change those out, it does seem a little difficult. I might be missing something here on how to remove the strap. Thanks.

    I hope one doesn't need to cut the bars in order to remove them.

    I hope not either! They are being difficult to try and get out, hopefully I will figure something out soon. I really want to put the watch on a NATO strap, I think it will look great Awesome. I guess I could cut the strap off, but really don't want to do that, I like it also.

    Hello Dave,

    There is a good article on Gear Patrol found here. The History of the NATO Watch Strap - Gear Patrol

    I can only speak for myself, but I love NATO straps, especially five ring Zulu's which tend to be a little thicker material. I am a huge fan of Maratac NATO's straps also. NATO's are very comfortable to wear and since I like to change straps a lot, the NATO makes a quick strap change, plus they look super cool, again just my opinion,

    Here is a picture of a couple of the NATO's I have for the Traverse, Once I figure out how to get the stock strap off. Hope this help.

    No problem, happy to help. Once you wear a NATO strap, you will be hooked, well at least I was!

    Success!, I figured out how to get the spring-bars out with out causing any real damage. I had to pull the strap as far as I could, then use the exacto to push the outside of tube to get as much of the internal spring bar exposed as I could, I would estimate 1 to 1.5mm max. Then you have to hold the outside bar with your finger and finally take the exacto blade and push into the inner spring bar and pull. The bar came out and only a very minimal gouge and no deformation to the hole. I would not want to do that much, I can see that numerous strap changes may cause issues with the plastic deforming, so I already ordered some double flange spring bars from Otto Frei. I will report how they fit once I get them. I hope my explanation made sense and if anybody has any questions please feel free to ask. Couple of pictures for reference and the stock spring bar is 1.75mm OD. Thanks.

    Re: Suunto Traverse

    Orange band looks great. Could you not accomplish the same thing with a spring bar tool?

    Please also would someone take this thing for a long trail run under canopy? Thanks in advance :)

    Re: Suunto Traverse

    Well, they apparently used shoulderless springbars - typically used on cases with drilled lugs. There's a method to its removal and the steps posted by spookyeng is one. Why they went away from the screw in method used in the Core, Vector and Ambit, I don't know....Even the Quest and M series had an innovative strap/pin combo which makes it easy to change straps.

    Thank's spookyeng for the instructions!
