Navigation guidance

As you navigate a route, your watch helps you stay on the correct path by giving you additional notifications as you progress along the route.

For example, if you go more than 100 m (330 ft) off route, the watch notifies you that you are not on the right track, as well as lets you know when you are back on route.

Once you reach a waypoint or POI on the route, you get an informative popup showing you the distance and estimated time en route (ETE) to the next waypoint or POI.

NOTE:

If you are navigating a route that crosses itself, such as a figure-8, and you make a wrong turn at the crossing, your watch assumes you are intentionally going in a different direction on the route. The watch shows the next waypoint based on the current, new direction of travel. So, keep an eye on your breadcrumb trail to ensure you are going the right way when you are navigating a complicated route.

Turn-by-turn navigation

When creating routes in Suunto app, you can choose to activate turn-by-turn instructions. When the route is transferred to your watch and used for navigation, it will give you turn-by-turn instructions with a sound alert and information on which way to turn.
