Suunto sports watches give you valuable real-time training data for almost any sport. See the information most relevant to you such as distance, pace, heart rate and altitude. Your Suunto sports watch helps you to push when keeping up on your cycling power and tells you to limit your running intensity during your intervals.
After each recorded activity, a recap of your session is shown on the watch together with key data specific to your sport, including recovery time and calories consumed. After your exercise you can transfer your Move to Suunto Movescount for deeper analysis. There you will find informative graphs, lap tables, HR-zones and speed curves that offer detailed insights to your training session.
Suunto Movescount offers you useful overviews to monitor your weekly, monthly and annual training load. Clear graphs illustrate the training you have been doing, summarizing their intensity, distance, etc. Use various analysis tools to compare training sessions to one another, and get understanding of the overall stress you have put on your body.
Monitoring your training load trend is important to ensure you train at an optimal level towards your goal and avoid overloading. To understand how much you are pushing your body, Suunto Movescount tracks the recovery time from each of your exercises to illustrate your load over time with a trend graph. Ideally the load trend should vary, allowing your body to rest between high intensity exercises. You can monitor your load trend in Suunto Movescount weekly, monthly and yearly.
Tracking your heart rate with a heart rate monitor tells you precisely how hard - or easy - your heart is working. Measuring your heart rate can help you from making one of the most common mistakes - training too hard too often, which puts you at risk for injury and burnout. Define your heart rate zones on Suunto Movescount to stay informed about the intensity of your exercise and see details such as calorie consumption and average heart rate.
Peak Training Effect (PTE) indicates the impact of a training session on your maximum aerobic performance and is most accurate with medium and high intensity training. The measurement is relative to your current fitness level. The fitter you are, the harder you have to work to reach a higher PTE. During each exercise, your Suunto watch evaluates the training effect of your session and records the highest PTE value of the session. On Suunto Movescount, you can follow PTE over time to help you manage your training intensity.
Your connected Suunto sports watch tracks your daily and weekly activity, as well as the remaining recovery time since your last exercise. Recovery time is an estimate of how long your body needs to recuperate after training. The time is based on the duration and intensity of the training session, as well as on the overall fatigue, accumulating even at lower intensities. Recovery time accumulates from one session to the next, if you train again before the time has expired. In Suunto Movescount, you can see the recovery time from each training session.

To provide you a 360° view to your training data, a feeling trend supplements the training load and rest & recovery data. By recording on Suunto Movescount how you feel after each training session and following how that changes over time, you get an additional indicator of your physical condition. For instance, if your feeling trend starts to decline, even though your training load has not increased, it may be a sign you need to take a break.
A rest day is a day when you have done no sports at all and have no activity, i.e. complete rest. Recovery days are those when you have done a bit of training (a Move) or your daily activity is very small. This will keep the blood flowing and in the best scenarios speeds up your recovery process. Active days are those when you haven’t done any actual training, but you have been otherwise very active. This is bad for an athlete as it may interfere with your recovery process. For a non-athlete, this helps to stay physically active. Training days are days when you have recorded Moves with your Suunto sports watch.
The connected Suunto sports watches offer various ways to follow your recovery.
With Quick Recovery Test (powered by Firstbeat) you can check your recovery status in just a few minutes by using the Suunto Smart Sensor with your watch. The cumulative percentage score indicates your overall recovery status. The higher the percentage, the more recovered you are. Wear the Suunto Smart Sensor overnight and run the Sleep Recovery Test (powered by Firstbeat) which measures your heart rate variability through the night to give you an accurate indication of your recovery status in the morning when you wake up.
Running performance is a combined measurement of your physical fitness and your running efficiency. To run faster – or longer with the same effort – you should improve both. Running performance level can guide your training during a single exercise and over the longer term. Following the real-time Running performance level offers detailed, granular information on your daily performance and fatigue during the run. Endurance runners can use this information to learn how much fatigue seems manageable during long intensive runs. During races, this information helps you pace yourself properly. After each run, your Running performance level will be updated and you can track progress.
