Charge your watch

Charging Suunto 7 is easy and fast. Connect the supplied USB cable with a USB port on your computer or a USB power adapter and power outlet. Place the magnetic end of the USB cable into the charging socket on the back of your watch.

Good to know

Your watch – and the charging socket – can get dirty as you use it, especially when you exercise. To make sure your watch can charge properly, wash the watch body once in a while to remove sweat or any body lotion you might have on your skin. Use lukewarm water and mild hand soap to wash the watch body, rinse well with water and pat the device dry with a towel.
