Did you know that every July Finland hosts athletes from all over the globe for the Wife Carrying World Championship? It’s an extreme obstacle course where the winning team wins the wife’s weight in beer. Now that’s a lot of carbs! Thankfully the Finnish also give us excellent tools for working off that extra weight. The beer belly I mean, not the wife.
Whether you’re training for an esoteric sporting event or just looking to track your fitness, the newest member of Suunto’s Spartan collection is what you crave. The Spartan Sport Wrist HR is the most accurate heart rate wristwatch on the market built with an activity tracker that monitors heart rate 24/7, and measures steps and calorie-burn through data-rich graphs and sport-specific displays. Heart rate measurement is powered by Valencell, the leading innovator in wearable biometric data sensor technology.
Each Spartan Sport HR is handmade in Finland with robust casing, mineral crystal glass and a stainless steel bezel. The highly durable colour touchscreen with a wide viewing angle and high-contrast visibility means you can easily view the screen in the brightest conditions. With a whopping 80 sports-specific activity modes, GPS and built-in accelerometer, expect versatile insights into your progress. Sadly wife carrying is not one of the activity modes, but it’s still perfect for training.
You can pick up a Spartan Sport Wrist HR from the end of March. The watch is available in three colours: Black, Blue and Sakura.
