Watching as Spartan Grows Stronger: FW 1.6.14

The next update from Suunto, released January 25, 2017, bringing the long-awaited GPS fix and adding GLONASS support (and taking care of some bugs).

Now, as you may have seen from my earlier updates on this sports watch, I have been getting pretty good results from it already. This only continued now that I’ve been starting to have a look at this firmware.

Between this and updates that are coming next…

In Development

  • Interval training support
  • Sport Mode Customization 2
  • Points of Interest in navigation
  • Transfer training plans to Suunto Spartan and follow your progress
  • Graphs for heart rate, speed and altitude

… I find that the Spartan is starting to look good.

That only means that the race is now really on, with the Garmin fenix5 announced, Casio’s Outdoors Smartwatch adding GPS, etc. …

Next weekend sees the start of the ISPO Sports Trade Fair, and I’ll be paying that a visit again, and I’ll meet up with a few representatives of that competition.
