Suunto Spartan Sport Wrist HR Baro Amber

The Suunto Spartan Sport Wrist HR Baro Amber is a sports and outdoor watch with an integrated optical heart rate monitor and barometer. The addition of the Barometer on this version of the Sport Wrist HR means that it will give a more accurate altitude reading which doesn't require a GPS fix, though with the FusedAlti it does use the GPS where available to increase the accuracy. It also means that the watch includes a storm alarm as it can monitor pressure changes over time. The other addition to this model is a thermometer.

The Spartan Sport Wrist HR Baro features a great looking colour touch screen which not only gives a great visual presentation of the data recorded during your training but allows for easy control much more akin to using a smart phone than a watch. It does still have 3 buttons which are used as in-action controls. It also includes Bluetooth connectivity to allow it to connect with a smart phone. The Sport is also a bit slimmer than the Ultra, so it will sit a bit more comfortably on smaller wrists, the downside to this is that the battery is smaller so it won't last as long as the Ultra. The glass mineral crystal glass, the bezel and buttons are steel and the Silicone strap is black with a black buckle.

The addition of an integrated industry leading Valencell PerformTek optical HR monitor offers convenient daily heart rate monitoring without the need for a chest strap. Useful if you prefer running without a chest strap or for 24/7 heart rate monitoring for accurate recovery measurement. For more demanding conditions when you will be wearing the watch over clothing or while swimming the Spartan Sport Wrist HR is still compatible with Suunto's Smart Sensor.

The Sport Wrist HR Baro has all the Suunto sports features except the bike and swim lapping feature, though it's worth noting that some of the training logbook features are only available to view on Movescount rather than the watch itself. It comes with a set of predefined sports modes which you can select for your chosen activity so the watch records the specific data set for that sport. This will be fully customisable with a future software update so you can create new sports modes if there isn't a preset which has everything you need. The Smart Training Insights functions allow you to see in detail where you are performing well and where your performance could be improved.

Reviewer: Stuie, Auckland  

This is a difficult review as I really like so many aspects of the watch, much better than my current Fenix 5, however there are a couple of major flaws.

The good:

  • Fits really well, very comfortable.
  • Looks awesome
  • The running data fields are the best on any running watch (much better than Fenix 5)
  • The resolution/screen is much clearer than its rivals
  • GPS is very good
  • Opitical HR is good for the GYM

The Bad:

  • The Optical Heart Rate is useless for running, the worst I have ever used across several brands such as Garmin and Fitbit, really not fit for purpose/or advertised.
  • The battery is poor, using best GPS for hour each day, with 24 hr tracking means a max 2-3 days before charging (Fenix 5 is 6-7 days)
  • No record of data such as sleep, resting HR outside of watch (this show 7 day average), app simply records activities not other data metrics.
  • App a million miles away from Garmin and Fitbit, if you are a data geek who loves to see patterns of sleep, resting HR etc, stay away this does not exist

As a running watch for distances up to marathon, I think it is the best out there, the data screens and fit are a level above the Fenix 5 and make it a joy to use whilst running, I just wish the HR during running was just close, but for me 9 times out of 10 it simply records Cadence as HR.

If you can get past the HR being useless when running and do not study patterns of data such as resting HR and sleep then I would recommend.

Facewest Note: There is now a new Suunto app which is closer to the competitor apps and adds calorie burning and a daily step count.

Delivered in time. Had some problems tracking the product with the Romanian courier but in the end solved. Great product, very satisfied. I changed after I had for a couple of years a suunto vector, then for 3 years a sunnto ambit 3. The spartan baro is great, light, and fits perfect to me. applications for running are good. Recommended.
