Since the release of the company’s first-ever product in 1936, Suunto has consistently been pushing the boundaries of horology and navigational instruments. And this propensity for innovation continues to this day with the Finnish firm’s latest piece of wearable tech, the new Suunto 7 Smartwatch.

The backwoods-ready smartwatch packs a host of noteworthy features including heart-rate detection, more than 70 sport modes, GPS mapping with free offline outdoor maps, integrated heat-maps for swimming, running, cycling, and a dozen other activities, and compatibility with Google Wear OS (Google Pay, Fit, Assistant, Play, etc). The Vantaa-based brand has also bestowed the 7 with all the regular features we’ve come to expect from a modern smartwatch such as text, email, calendars, and calling. Constructed around an ultra-rugged Glass fiber-reinforced polyamide case with a stainless steel bezel and physical buttons, the watch is water-resistant to 50M, as well as being shock- and dirt-resistant, as well as waterproof. Protected beneath scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass is the item’s 1,000 nit color, touchscreen AMOLED display. Developed and tested in Finland, the featherweight sub-2.5oz watch is powered by a rechargeable lithium-polymer that affords as much as two days of smartwatch running time or 12 hours of GPS tracking. Paired with a silicone strap, the Suunto 7 is being offered in five different colors and is available for preorder for $500 with shipping scheduled to commence by the end of January 2020.

Preorder: $500
