Updates for Suunto Spartan
Here you will find the details about the latest software releases for Suunto Spartan, as well as information on previous updates and how to complete the software update process.
Our focus this summer is to bring performance enhancements to the current Spartan solution. We are targeting to deliver some of these improvements by late summer/early autumn. Following this, we will be bringing a substantial, outdoor-focused release later in the autumn, currently scheduled for late October.
As we move forward, the cadence of our software updates will be once per quarter (approximately every three months). Updates will typically include both feature updates and performance improvements.
We are excited to share the latest update for the Suunto Spartan family. Here are the new features and improvements available in this release:

(If you have not received the update on Thursday March 30, you will receive it earliest on Monday April 3).
