Suunto Traverse Amber

GPS outdoor watch with versatile navigation functions for hiking and trekking

Go explore

Curiosity drives us to seek out and discover new places, but it’s the confidence of finding our way that encourages us to step off the beaten track. Topographic maps in Suunto Movescount and the integrated GPS and GLONASS navigation of Suunto Traverse help you plan your hikes and find your way in the wild. The automatic breadcrumb of your track ensures you can re-trace your steps when needed. The strong build and powerful battery of Suunto Traverse keep you exploring hour after hour.

Product highlights

  • Up to 100 hours battery life, sunset/sunrise times and storm alarm

Tested tough

Every new Suunto product goes through rigorous testing during development both in the laboratory and out in the field. In addition to our internal testing, we let independent test laboratories put our products to the limit. See how Suunto Traverse was tested according the military standards (MIL-STD-810G).
