Many activities are done while going around and around. Cross country skiing loop, speed skating ring, running in track & field or even just running in a park. To keep you on track, motivated to push forward and see how you do, your Suunto 5 can provide you with a LOOP feature.
The LOOP feature comes in three different versions:
Tracks your speed, heart rate and distance during a LOOP
Tracks your pace, heart rate and distance during a LOOP
Intended for cycling and tracks your power, heart rate and distance during a LOOP
For cycling, this feature requires a power meter.
To use the LOOP with Suunto 5:
When you start your exercise your Suunto 5 will record the starting point and if you pass this point later during your exercise, you have done a loop.
You can also start a LOOP manually by pressing the lower right button at any stage, then this location will act as the start point of the LOOP.
The result of each finished loop will be visible on your watch for 20 seconds before returning to LOOP screen.
After you have stopped the exercise recording, you will find the LOOP result in the summary and in Suunto app. The number of loops are counted as well as the average loop duration and distance. You will also see the fastest loop you tracked during the session.
