Discover new routes
Let the Suunto Movescount community help you explore. Use heatmaps to discover the most popular tracks for different sports. Break the routine and find new places to train in your own neighborhood or find where the locals train when you travel.
Create a route based on the heatmap and transfer it to your compatible Suunto watch to get navigation guidance during your training. You can also share an interesting heatmap with a friend via social media.
You can export any public routes in Movescount to your compatible Suunto GPS watch. Using the Map view, you can also import routes to Movescount from external sources, or create your own with the route planning tool. The route altitude profile updates as you draw the route on the Google or Mapbox map, making planning easy.
Once you selected or planned a route, check “Use this route in my (your watch)” box and save the route. The next time you sync your watch, the route appears under the route list in your watch.
Suunto GPS watches offer reliable navigation aids to help you get to your destination. With Track back, for example, you can retrace your route at any point while recording an exercise with GPS. Some watches feature automatic breadcrumb trail that allows you to see your track and direction at all times.
Points of interest, or POIs, are pre-defined destinations stored on your Suunto GPS watch. You can create POIs for destinations you want to reach, or points you pass, like an equipment-stash you have left behind. Or, in urban environment, make a POI to remember where you parked your car, for example.
If your Suunto watch has an altimeter, knowing your exact altitude will help you pin-point your location, help you follow a contour line or tell you how much further you will need to climb or descend.
