Suunto launches M5 in new colors

The Suunto M5, a perfect training partner for work-outs and aerobic activity, will come out in two new designs. The heart rate monitor is getting a make-over and will now be available in an eye-catching black/lime and a black/silver edition.

The Suunto M5 is a versatile training device. Users simply enter their personal data once and the heart rate monitor will do the rest, selecting the right exercise program whether you want to lose weight or improve your fitness.

Set your goals, and the M5 will provide an ideal daily workout schedule to help you achieve them  – even telling you when it’s time to rest. The Suunto M5 is also compatible with Suunto's range of Foot, Bike and GPS PODs to offer speed, distance and more real-time information for a wide range of sports.

Comments Ewa Pulkkinen, Suunto Product Manager: “The Suunto M5 is a very easy-to-use fitness watch that sports advanced heart rate monitor functions to help you on every step of your journey towards improved fitness. These bright new colors are the ideal companion for your exercise routine.”

About Suunto M5:
The Suunto M5 is optimized for any aerobic activity. The optional Foot POD, Bike POD, Road Bike POD and GPS Track POD will send real-time data to your heart rate monitor on your wrist. So when you go jogging or cycling you will see your speed and distance in real time. Suunto Movestick Mini wirelessly transfers your M5 training data to Movescount.com, and downloads any program from Movescount.com to your Suunto M5.
