Interval training

Interval workouts are a common form of training consisting of repetitive sets of high and low intensity efforts. With Suunto 9 Peak Pro, you can define in the watch your own interval training for each sport mode.

When defining your intervals, you have four items to set:

  • Intervals: on/off toggle that enables interval training. When you toggle this on, an interval training display is added to your sport mode.
  • Repetitions: the number of interval + recovery sets you want to do.
  • Interval: the length of your high intensity interval, based on distance or duration.
  • Recovery: the length of your rest period between intervals, based on distance or duration.

Keep in mind that if you use distance to define your intervals, you need to be in a sport mode that measures distance. The measurement can be based on GPS, or from a foot or bike POD, for example.

NOTE:

If you are using intervals, you cannot activate navigation.

To train with intervals:

  1. Before you start an exercise recording, swipe up or press the lower button to scroll down to Intervals and tap the setting or press the middle button.

  2. Toggle Intervals on and adjust the settings described above.

  3. Scroll back up to the start view and start your exercise as normal.

  4. Swipe left or press the middle button until you reach the intervals display and press the upper button when you are ready to start your interval training.

  5. If you want to stop the interval training before you have completed all your repetitions, keep the middle button pressed to open the sport mode options and toggle off Intervals.

NOTE:

While you are in the intervals display, buttons work as normal, for example, pressing the upper button pauses the exercise recording, not just the interval training.

After you have stopped your exercise recording, interval training is automatically toggled off for that sport mode. The other settings, however, are maintained so you can easily start the same workout the next time you use the sport mode.
