HELSINKI (January 20, 2022) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Suunto, a global leader in sports watches, dive computers, and precision instruments, announces the release of the Suunto 5, the brand’s lightest weight GPS watch with up to 100 hours of GPS battery. Building on the success of the recently released Suunto 9 Peak, the Suunto Suunto 5 Peak is designed for outdoor fitness lovers looking for a light, compact, durable, and long-lasting partner to guide them towards reaching fitness goals, all at a cost-effective price point.

The Suunto 5 Peak is an evolution of the original Suunto 5 model.

Proudly made in Finland, Suunto designers created this watch for people active in the outdoors who want to explore new terrain and are motivated to achieve personal fitness goals safely and confidently. Combined with Suunto app and its heat and 3D maps, users can easily discover popular routes, plan their own, transfer them to the watch, and follow them – turn by turn – on their next adventure. An impressive array of partner services enhances these possibilities even further.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that the Suunto 5 Peak is going to perform strongly given its ultra-light weight and sleek design, rich functionality, combined with its accessible price point,” says Heikki Norta, President, Suunto. “That’s what we set out to achieve when we sat down to design this watch and I believe consumers will agree we haven’t come up short. With this watch they are ready for their next adventure.”
