TRACK OF ALL TRADES Suunto 7
TRACK OF ALL TRADES Suunto 7
Is the Suunto 7 a smartwatch, a running watch, a fitness tracker or maybe all of the above?

SPECIFICATION

Screen 454x454 AMOLED Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 Battery Training: 12 hours; Smartwatch: 2 days OS Wear OS Glass Gorilla glass Case Glass fibre reinforced polyamide Strap Silicone Dimensions 50x50x15.3mm Weight 70 g

Wrap the Suunto 7 around your wrist and what catches your attention straight away is the huge screen. We’re used to big screens – think the Garmin Fenix 6 Pro – but the Suunto 7 still surprised us with how vibrant the display looked.

The Suunto 7 offers more than just a large screen: it comes with downloadable offline maps, over 70 sport modes, music control and all the smart functions you’d expect from a Wear OS powered watch.

The catch? For one, you’ll have to pay £429 for the privilege. It’s going to have to work to justify starting at more than the latest Apple Watch.

The Suunto 7’s hardware is all about the touch-screen AMOLED display, which is housed under a Gorilla Glass screen. The display has a 454x454 pixels resolution, good enough to see images that have been sent to you through WhatsApp and with enough contrast and brightness to be sharp under most lighting conditions.

The watch uses a hybrid touchscreen/four-button navigation, which needs a little time to get used to.
