Lighter, sleeker, longer lasting – introducing the new Suunto 5 Peak GPS sport watch

Sports — 20 January 2022

The new lightweight Suunto 5 Peak offers up to 100 hours of battery life, in sport music controls, extensive outdoor navigation features and all at a sweet price point.


Building on the success of the recently released Suunto 9 Peak, Suunto today released its sibling, the Suunto 5 Peak GPS sport watch, designed for outdoor fitness lovers looking for a light, compact, durable, and long-lasting partner to guide them towards reaching their fitness goals, but one that requires less financial investment to buy.

The Suunto 5 Peak is an evolution of the older Suunto 5 model. The new watch is 41% lighter than its forbear, is sleeker due to the absence of the older model’s GPS nose, offers up to 100 hours of battery life, handy music controls on the watch, automatic, over the air software updates and features Suunto’s new design language, and a selection of easily changeable accessory straps to suit individual style. And costing less than 299€ / $329, the Suunto 5 Peak punches above its weight.

Proudly made in Finland, Suunto designers in Helsinki created this watch for people active in the outdoors who want to explore new terrain and are committed to achieving personal fitness goals safely and confidently. Whether for running, hiking, walking, cycling or trail running, the Suunto 5 Peak’s GPS navigation features – including turn by turn navigation – ensure users can follow a route there and back again without fear of going off path or getting lost. The watch’s sunrise and sunset alarms tell users exactly how much daylight they have to play with.

Combined with Suunto app and its heat and 3D maps, users can easily discover popular routes, plan their own, transfer them to the watch, and follow them – turn by turn – on the next adventure. An impressive array of partner services enhances these possibilities even further.

Heikki Norta, President, Suunto, believes the comfortable new watch is going to compete fiercely in its market class.

There’s no doubt in my mind that the Suunto 5 Peak is going to perform strongly given its ultra-light weight and sleek design, rich functionality, combined with its accessible price point,” Norta said. “That’s what we set out to achieve when we sat down to design this watch and I believe consumers will agree we haven’t come up short. With this watch they are ready for their next adventure.
