Suunto Spartan Trainer Wrist HR Review

The Suunto Spartan Trainer Wrist HR is fitness wearable worth shouting about. According to different athletes, it compares well with other leading brands on the market. Does it really let us find out?

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • The fitness wearable has a small and slim body and viewing feedback of runners, triathletes, and swimmers, we found they all were more than pleased with the design. They even like the price.
  • Athletes found the screen visible to read in any lighting condition.
  • Another standout that consumers found amazing is the fact that the watch presents athletes with 80 different sports modes for indoor and outdoor activities.
  • One professional sports user mentioned the watch has a heart rate sensor, but you can connect it to other devices such as an external heart rate monitor.
  • Triathletes found the tracking while using the GPS on their runs accurate. The average pace was spot on, but had minor discrepancies with distance tracked.
  • Swimmers found using the watch indoor and in the open water impressive as it presented them with solid tracking.
  • Sports experts found the battery life decent when used with GPS.
  • The fact that it is waterproof for swimming is something even the normal runner likes as they do not need to remove the watch when taking a shower.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • Users are pleased they can use 3rd-party apps to be informed of notifications, but they cannot respond to them.
  • Sports professionals felt the app needs more work and very basic.
  • Some users found the lack of a touchscreen displeasing and the smartwatch features limited.
  • Consumers found using the web app better than using their phone app.


The Suunto Spartan Trainer HR has a powerful sports tracking with a range of other activities. The price is low and the embedded heart rate sensor appealing. The biggest concern is the app that still needs improvement.
