The Suunto Spartan Trainer Wrist HR Gold is a slimmed down version of the Spartan Sport Wrist HR complete with a smart gold tinted steel bezel. It features the same training functions, sports modes, GPS and connectivity for logging your activities that the Sport Wrist HR, as well as having the same industry leading Valencell PerformTek Optical HR Monitor to allow it to record your heart rate without a separate HR belt. Battery life depends heavily on how the watch is used. The minimum battery life is 10hours with the GPS set to the best accuracy. If you're just using it in time mode it will last up to 14 days.
Although the the Spartan Trainer does have a full colour screen it doesn't feature touch sensitivity so it does rely on buttons to navigate the menu. It's also smaller in terms of width and thickness than the Spartan Sport Wrist HR and Spartan Ultra, though it does feature a small fixed plastic section which houses the GPS antenna on one side of body which is built into the strap. Although it does feature a Wrist HRM it is still compatible with the Suunto Smart HR Belt (along with the other Suunto Bluetooth sensors and PODs). This is useful as the wrist monitor can't be used when swimming and isn't as accurate as a Heart Rate chest belt.
The Suunto Spartan Trainer Wrist HR 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. These are customisable so you can personalise the modes to record the data you want for your given activity. The Smart Training Insights functions allow you to see in detail where you are performing well and where your performance could be improved.
