Suunto Unveils New Vertical GPS Adventure Watch


Suunto’s new Vertical GPS Adventure watch is now available for purchase. 

The Suunto Vertical is the most high-performance, toughest, and longest-lasting battery life watch the Finish-based company has ever designed. With over 95+ different sport modes, including snorkeling, freediving, and mermaiding – this will be a multi-sport watch for everyone.

The Vertical’s battery life features 85 hours of continuous exercise tracking with location tracking on the titanium solar variant and 60 hours with the stainless steel variant.

Tour mode, which still provides accurate tracking, offers 500 hours of continuous exercise tracking. In daily mode, the Suunto Vertical can go up to 60 days on a single charge, and the titanium solar variant even up to one year without charging.

The Suunto Vertical can connect with up to five satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BEIDOU, QZSS) and up to 32 individual satellites simultaneously.

While the Vertical is a premium adventure watch, this doesn’t mean it wouldn’t serve as a companion for everyday exercise and training for races or adventures. The big screen makes it easy to follow metrics while moving. All the sport modes are equipped with sport-specific data screens and there are more than 95 different sport modes to choose from, including everything from trail running to gravel cycling as well as swimming. You can even create your own custom sport modes in the Suunto app or check out the SuuntoPlus Store for additional sport apps and guides.

And yeah, it can also measure snorkeling data down to 10m/33ft.

Other features include:

  • Waterproof down to 328ft/100m
  • Daily activity tracking: steps, heart rate, sleep, calories, stress and more
  • Over-the-air software updates

The Suunto Vertical is available in eight different versions; the four models built with solar charging retail for US$839/~€772 and four models built with stainless steel $629/~€579.
