The worrying reality here is that in trying to keep up with the aesthetic changes of the competition Suunto has become a bit of a bimbo. The Spartan Sport looks great and can cover the basics with good GPS, but when it comes to app support, customisation and even a fast operating system, it’s sorely lacking. Of course this is a new line from Suunto which has all the hardware smarts to be updated to fix all those issues in time. In fact the Suunto site has lots of specs listed as “coming soon” which an update will introduce down the line. So, knowing Suunto, that’s exactly what will happen soon. However if you’re thinking of investing now then know that you’re doing so as an early adopter. So if you trust Suunto enough to make these watches great, as they have the potential to be, then get involved. But if you want one that works already then the competition is steaming ahead right now with exactly what you need.
