Suunto watch faces

Suunto 7 comes with four watch faces by Suunto – Heatmap, Original, Marine and Rose – to celebrate the history of Suunto and the community of passionate athletes and adventurers around the world.

Heatmap

suunto-watchface-heatmap

To inspire and encourage you to explore the outdoors around you, the Heatmap watch face shows where other passionate Suunto athletes have been exercising in your area.

By default, the heatmap will show popular running routes in your area. If running is not your thing, you can go to the watch face settings and choose another sport for your heatmap. Suunto 7 has 15 different heatmaps to choose from.

The heatmap on your watch face is automatically updated based on your location. If you do not see a heatmap or the map does not update based on your location, check these:

  • On your phone, allow location sharing for Wear OS by Google.
  • On your watch, allow location sharing in Connectivity settings settings and in Suunto watch faces application permission settings.
  • Make sure your watch is connected to the Internet.
  • You have moved more than 2 kilometers (1.25 miles) from your previous location.
  • Try a different heatmap – maybe there is no heat for the sport you chose yet.

Original

suunto-watchface-original

In 1936, Tuomas Vohlonen founded Suunto to mass produce stable and accurate compasses after he had long been bothered by the inaccuracy and lack of steady needle operation of traditional dry compasses. Ever since, the Suunto compasses and connected Suunto method have provided essential tools for navigation for outdoor enthusiasts, athletes and professionals. The Original watch face design is inspired by the very first Suunto marching compass, M-311.

Marine

suunto-watchface-marine

Between 1953 and 2011 Suunto was in the marine compass market. The Marine watch face is inspired by the popular Suunto K-14 marine compass, which became a standard in a large number of sail and power boats around the world due to the stable and easy to read compass card and the smart mounting into the vessel.

Rose

suunto-watchface-rose

The Rose watch face is inspired by the Suunto pocket TK-3 compass which was inspired by old marine compasses with compass roses. TK-3 compass was a tribute to the endeavors of explorers filling out the whites of the world atlas using a compass, the stars and ropes as their main means of position finding.
