Suunto 5 User guide

SuuntoPlus™ - Strava

Get specific about how much work goes into your exercise with real-time Relative Effort. Whether your exercise is slow and steady or short and strenuous, Relative Effort gives you a personalized measurement based on your heart rate zones, so you can adapt your effort on the go. Once you are done, sync your activity to Strava or get more of your workout with Strava Summit: deep dive into performance data, see how much progress you have made overall and where you are in your training cycle – whether you are peaking, maintaining or recovering.

  1. Before you start an exercise recording, press the lower button to open the sport mode options.
  2. Scroll to SuuntoPlus™ features and press the middle button.
  3. Scroll to Strava and press the middle button.
  4. Scroll up to the start view and start your exercise as normal.
  5. During exercise, press the middle button until you reach the Strava display to view Relative Effort value in real-time.
