The Suunto Spartan Ultra Black is the latest sports watch from Suunto following the popular Ambit 3.
The biggest difference superficially is the slimlined design, the ability to get rid of the bulky antenna section on the Ambit 3 Peak, as on the Traverse and Ambit 3 Vertical has made it a noticeably smaller watch than the Ambit 3 Peak. It also has a 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, though it does still have 3 buttons which are used as in-action controls. The glass is sapphire crystal as standard, the bezel and buttons are brushed steel and the Silicone strap is black with a silver buckle.
It has all the features found on the Ambit 3 Peak including Bluetooth connectivity and multi sport functions plus plenty of new ones. 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 is fully customiseable 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.
There's also been an update to Movescount, a major feature of which is Heatmaps. Heatmaps show the most popular routes for a chosen sport in your area making it easy to discover new routes and keep your training sessions fresh. Routes can be downloaded to the watch so all you have to do is follow them using the inbuilt GPS. It also provides detailed data of your performances so you know when you're are performing to the best of your ability. This function further extends to allow you to compare yourself to a peer group so you know how you're performing against others.
This HR version includes the Suunto Smart Belt for monitoring your heart rate on the watch via a Bluetooth connection.
