Suunto Race User Guide


Your resources are a good indication of your body's energy levels, which directly influence your capacity to handle stress and cope with the daily challenges.

Stress and physical activity deplete your resources, while rest and recovery restore them. Good sleep is an essential part of ensuring your body has the resources it needs.

When your resource levels are high, you will likely feel fresh and energetic. Going for a run when your resources are high means you'll probably have a great run, because your body has the energy it needs to adapt and improve as a result.

Being able to track your resources can help you manage and use them wisely. You can also use your resource levels as a guide to identify stress factors, personally effective recovery boosting strategies, and the impact of good nutrition.

Stress and recovery uses optical heart sensor readings and to get those during the day, daily HR must be enabled, see Heart rate.

It is important that your Max HR and Rest HR are set to match your heart rate to ensure that you get the most accurate readings. By default, the Rest HR is set to 60 bpm and the Max HR is based on your age.

These HR values can easily be changed in the settings under General » Personal.


Use the lowest heart rate reading measured during your sleep as your Rest HR.

From the watch face, turn the crown or swipe up to scroll to the resources widget.

Resources Widget

The color around the widget icon indicates your overall resource level. If it is green, it means you are recovering. The status tells you your current state (active, inactive, recovering or stressed). The bar chart shows your resources over the last 16 hours and the percentage value is an estimate of your current resource level.
