Where To Get It:
A Deep Dive Into The Suunto 3 Fitness
The current Suunto range is aimed at serious to elite level athletes with their brilliant Suunto Spartan Range.
The best in that range is the Suunto Spartan Trainer Wrist HR – a brilliant value for money performance monitor for athletes of all levels and all sports …
From 2015 to 2017 Suunto did not have a fitness tracking watch designed for the masses. People who exercise to keep fit, stay healthy and possibly run the odd 10K or ride the occasional Sportive (organised group cycle ride – often timed, but NOT a race).
In earlier years Suunto had their impressive Suunto T3 and T4 – brilliant fitness watches, very much missed. UNTIL NOW
Welcome the new Suunto 3 Fitness – a sleek and stylish GPS Fitness Tracking watch with wrist based heart rate monitor.
- Adaptive training guidance
- Activity tracking with steps, calories and sleep
- Built-in sport modes for running, swimming, cycling, gym training and many more
- Accelerometer-based speed, pace and distance for walking and running
- Water resistant to 30 meters, swimming proof
The following information has been extracted from their press release:
Training with Suunto 3 Fitness is easy. The watch automatically creates seven-day training plans, using your fitness level and overall exercise history as a base. However, if you miss an exercise, or get excited and do a little more than planned, Suunto 3 Fitness automatically adapts your training plan accordingly, so you don’t need to stress about keeping up with the plan. Additional real-time guidance with heart rate zones during every workout help ensure you train at the right intensity.
Balance exercise and rest to support overall wellbeing
Suunto 3 Fitness provides 24/7 activity tracking for steps and calories, and easy-to-follow summaries provide a view of your daily activity, helping you balance training and rest. Sleep quality tracking indicates how well sleep supports your recovery, enabling you to keep up with your active lifestyle.
Suunto developed sleep quality tracking, as well as fitness level indicator and adaptive training guidance in cooperation with Firstbeat Technologies, Suunto’s long-term partner in sports sciences. Keep up with training goals via connected Suunto app
Suunto 3 Fitness connects to the all-new Suunto app, which will be introduced in detail later in the spring. The new app logs all your activities and keeps you up to date on your weekly training goals. The smart mobile connection also delivers incoming calls, text messages and calendar notifications to the watch.

A Wide Range of Styles
It looks like the new Suunto 3 Fitness will be available in a wide range of colours and styles.
There will only be ONE size of watch, which, if similar to the Spartan Trainer Wrist HR, is absolutely fine for wrist sizes from 16cm to 21cm (to be confirmed).
The Suunto 3 Fitness came out in Spring 2018. Currently the 3 Fitness line up consists of 5 different models – Gold, All Black, Ocean, Sakura and Black.
The top of the range is the Gold and All Black models. Sleek and stylish the models of the 3 Fitness present an elegant, urban feel. The stainless steel bezel can be either gold or black with matching buttons (pusher)
Slightly cheaper with a fresh, lively look are the models on the right.. Black, Ocean and Sakura models with polished stainless steel bezels and colour coded buttons.
