Suunto 9 User Guide - 2.1

SuuntoPlus™: Loop - Lap Timer​ (Speed, Pace, Power)

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 9 can provide you with a Loop feature.

The Loop feature comes in three different versions:

Loop – Lap Timer​ (Speed)

Tracks your speed, heart rate and distance during a Loop

Loop – Lap Timer​ (Pace)

Tracks your pace, heart rate and distance during a Loop

Loop – Lap Timer​ (Power)

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 9:

  1. Before you start an exercise recording, swipe up or press the lower button to open the sport mode options.
  2. Scroll to and tap SuuntoPlus™ features or press the middle button.
  3. Scroll to and tap Loop feature you want to use or press the middle button.
  4. Scroll up to the start view and start your exercise as normal.

When you start your exercise your Suunto 9 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.
