Suunto Vertical User Guide

Media controls

Your Suunto Vertical can be used to control the music, podcast, other media played on your phone or being cast from your phone to another device. The media controls widget is on by default but can be turned off by swiping up from watch face and select Media controls.


You need to pair your watch with your phone before you can use Media controls.

To access the media controls widget, press the lower button from watch face or, during an exercise, press the middle button until the media control widget is shown.


In the media control widget, the buttons have the following functions:

  • Play/Pause: Upper button
  • Next track/episode: Upper button (long press)
  • Previous track/episode and volume: Lower button (will open media control options)

Press the middle button to exit the media control widget.


If your watch has a touch screen, the media controls can also be used by tapping the icons on the screen.
