Suunto 7 User Guide

  • Connect to the Internet

Connect to the Internet

When your watch is connected to the Internet you can do more with it – ask for help from your Google Assistant, get the latest weather forecast or get updates and download new apps.

Your watch can connect to the Internet through Wifi or your phone. The connection via Wifi is faster than via your phone but uses more power. If both connections are available, your watch will automatically determine which one to use.
