Global leader in sports watches, dive computers and precision instruments, Suunto is launching two new premium variants to its award-winning sports watches with the addition of the Suunto 7 and Suunto 9 Baro Titanium.
The new Suunto 7 Titanium (pictured above), available in Matte Black Titanium and Stone Grey Titanium, features a minimalistic design with high-grade five titanium bezels and ultra-soft microfiber textile strap for a comfortable and secure fit.
It builds upon Suunto’s versatile sports expertise as well as features found on the Suunto 7 including over 70 sport modes and Wear OS by Google. Key in-built updates are backwards compatible across the existing 7 range, live through an automatic software update.
The Suunto 9 Baro Titanium (pictured below), available in Granite Blue Titanium and Charcoal Black Titanium, is designed for the most demanding outdoor sports and adventures with an intelligent GPS system for optimal battery management, comprehensive weather tracking features and over 80 pre-built sport modes including hiking, skiing, and mountain biking.
The watch offers up to 170 hours of GPS battery life (in Tour Mode), new minimalistic geometry with titanium bezel making it the lightest watch in the Suunto 9 range and comes with two abrasion resistant textile straps.
To coincide with the launch, Suunto has partnered with Australian Ninja Warriors Travis Edwards and Judith Carroll.
Based in Penrith NSW, 24-year-old Travis Edwards came out of retirement after a career shattering injury, pursuing his passion of teaching gymnastics to children with disabilities and his dream of becoming Australia’s first Ninja Warrior. Based in Sydney’s Northern Beaches, 23-year-old Judith Carroll is a nanny by day and gymnast and rock climber by night, and studying sports and exercise science.
“With last year’s flagship 7 sports watch putting Suunto’s name on the map for a mainstream audience, we looked onwards and upwards by providing consumers with significant advancements across the Suunto 7 and 9 sportswatches to allow Australians of all needs and abilities to join Suunto’s journey,” Suunto Australia and New Zealand head, Fraser Jones said.
“Beyond just the techs and specs, our partnership with two Australian Ninja Warriors highlights our commitment to provide innovative and accessible technology for everyone from the hardcore athlete to the everyday active Australian.”
The Suunto 7 Titanium is now available at Harvey Norman, Myer and other specialist retailers for RRP $699. The Suunto 9 Baro Titanium is available at Harvey Norman and other specialist retailers for RRP $799.
