The brand new Suunto 9 Peak is an argument in opposition to the Garmin Venu 2 with 7-day GPS monitoring
Suunto makes some of the best Wear OS smartwatches, such as the Suunto 7, but its latest offering differs from Google’s operating system with improved battery life. The Suunto 9 Peak was announced on Tuesday as the latest addition to the company’s 9-series smartwatch for sports enthusiasts.
The company calls the Suunto 9 Peak the “thinnest, smallest, and toughest watch Suunto has ever made,” thanks to the Class 5 titanium watch case that flanks the 1.2-inch display with fairly large bezels. The titanium construction makes the watch scratch-resistant and hypoallergenic and even offers water resistance up to 100 m depth.
The device offers numerous sports tracking options with more than 80 sports modes thanks to the integrated GPS. Suunto claims to have up to 170 hours of uninterrupted GPS tracking in Tour mode. This is not particularly accurate, but it helps to save the battery on long hikes. If you want more accurate location tracking, the watch can last up to 25 hours.

The Suunto 9 Peak has a heart rate monitor, an SpO2 sensor, an altimeter and weather functions such as storm alarms.
The watch can be pre-ordered and will be delivered on June 17th. It costs $ 569 and costs a lot more than the recently introduced Garmin Venu 2. Whether or not the device can justify the high price tag compared to the impressive Venu 2 remains to be seen, although it may already have a leg in the battery department.
