Suunto Race User Guide

Alarms

In the Alarms menu of your watch, under Settings you can set different adaptive alarm types.

You can set an alarm for sunrise and sunset and also for storm alarm. See Sunrise and sunset alarms and Storm alarm.

Sunrise and sunset alarms

The sunrise/sunset alarms in your Suunto Race are adaptive alarms based on your location. Instead of setting a fixed time, you set the alarm for how much in advance you want to be alerted before the actual sunrise or sunset.

The sunrise and sunset times are determined via GPS, so your watch relies on the GPS data from the last time you used GPS.

To set sunset/sunrise alarms:

  1. From watch face, keep the crown pressed to enter Settings.
  2. Scroll to Alarms and enter the menu by tapping on its name or pressing the middle button.
  3. Scroll to the alarm that you want to set and select it by tapping on its name or pressing the crown.

  4. Set the desired hours and minutes prior to sunrise/sunset by scrolling up and down with the crown or by swiping up and down on the screen and confirming with the middle button.

  5. Press the middle button to confirm and exit.
TIP:

A watch face is also available that shows sunrise and sunset times.

NOTE:

Sunrise and sunset times and alarms require a GPS fix. The times are blank until GPS data is available.

Storm alarm

A significant drop in barometric pressure typically means a storm is coming and you should take cover. When the storm alarm is active, Suunto Race sounds an alarm and displays a storm symbol when the pressure drops 4 hPa (0.12 inHg) or more during a 3-hour period.

To activate the storm alarm:

  1. From watch face, keep the crown pressed to enter Settings.
  2. Scroll to Alarms and enter the menu by tapping on its name or pressing the crown.
  3. Scroll to Storm alarm and toggle it on/off by tapping on its name or pressing the crown.

When a storm alarm sounds, pressing any button ends the alarm. If no button is pressed, the alarm notification lasts for one minute. The storm symbol remains on the display until the weather conditions stabilize (pressure drop slows down).
