Building on the success of the recently released Suunto 9 Peak, Suunto has today announced the local launch of its sibling, the Suunto 5 Peak GPS sports watch.

Designed for outdoor fitness lovers and manufactured in Finland with 100% renewable, carbon-neutral energy, the Suunto 5 Peak is a light, compact, durable, and long-lasting partner to guide people towards reaching their fitness goals.

Offering flagship sports watch features that users know and love from Suunto at an affordable price, Suunto’s latest effort carves out a space in the broader Peak range as a personal fitness training and tracking companion for under $500, launching at a time when Australians are keeping an eye on their fitness now more than ever.

The Suunto 5 Peak is significantly different from its older Suunto 5 namesake. The new watch is 41% lighter than its forbear, is sleeker with no ‘GPS nose’, offers up to 100 hours of battery life, has handy music controls on the watch and provides automatic over-the-air software updates. It also features Suunto’s new design and a selection of easily changeable accessory straps to suit individual styles.

“The introduction of the Suunto 5 Peak builds on our ever-growing portfolio of sport watches available to Australian consumers and brings some of our key performance tracking features into a sub $500 GPS Sport watch for the first time. Our new design makes it more visually appealing than ever before, and consumers can have peace of mind that as they explore the beauty of the world around them, they are wearing a watch that is made from 100% renewable energy from a company committed to sustainability,” said Damian Commane, Head of Suunto ANZ.

Proudly made in Finland, Suunto designers in Helsinki created this watch for people who love the outdoors, want to explore new terrain and are committed to achieving personal fitness goals safely and confidently. Whether for running, hiking, walking, cycling or trail running, the Suunto 5 Peak’s GPS navigation features – including turn-by-turn navigation – ensure users can follow a return route without fear of going off the path or getting lost. The watch’s sunrise and sunset alarms tell users exactly how much daylight they have to play with.

The Suunto 5 Peak is also one of several new products from Suunto made in Finland manufactured with 100% renewable, carbon-neutral energy. This further reflects Suunto’s increased initiatives to grow as a sustainability-conscious brand. The 5 Peak presents a great addition as Suunto endeavours to minimise its emissions by manufacturing high-quality, long-lasting products.

Combined with the Suunto app and its heat and 3D maps, users can quickly discover popular routes, plan their own, transfer them to the watch, and follow them – turn by turn – on the next adventure. An impressive array of partner services enhances these possibilities even further.
