“Suunto is a great brand that builds great multisport devices”, said John Anthony, President of Swim.com. “Our decision to integrate with Suunto was based on several factors including our customer requests to see their Suunto swims on Swim.com and our improving penetration in the Europe and Asian markets. I also believe Suunto has built a market-leading Wear OS smart sports watch with the release of the Suunto 7.”
With this integration, Swim.com and Suunto are also providing swimmers with more options to track their open water swims. “We believe open water participation is going to grow in popularity due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the pressure it is putting on pool swimming”, said John Anthony. We believe the sport of open water swimming is growing in popularity due to the global pandemic.
