The modern day athlete must demonstrate machine-like strength and efficiency in order to stay competitive. That means not only hitting the gym and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but also setting metrics goals and using the best gear available. Watch company Suunto knows all about the new bar of performance demanded from functional athletic accessories, and after doing extensive research they are now set to bring their newest beast–the Spartan Ultra–to market in August.
Each Spartan Ultra is crafted by hand in Finland and built to withstand virtually any environment. To help achieve maximum durability the timepiece employs reinforced polyamide for casing and grade 5 Titanium or stainless steel bezel. Also featured is a weather-resistant touch screen with optimal viewing angles and enhanced visibility even when placed under harsh sunlight. Round that out with water resistance for up to 100 metres and a long battery life and this beauty is certainly built to last.
But all the aforementioned details are merely a small sample of the Spartan’s multisport appeal. In living up to the promise of efficiency and fitness tracking, the watch includes features like guided route navigation, sport-specific heatmaps, barometric altitude, and a digital compass among other things. By combining exceptional design with seamless access to personal metrics, the Spartan Ultra is poised to become the modern athlete’s watch of choice for 2016. Get it while it’s hot!
