A new version of Suunto 7 has appeared on Amazon and other retail websites. The main difference between this on and the other ones is that it is made of titanium.
The original Suunto 7 was first announced at CES 2020 in Las Vegas just over a year ago. It came with the addition of offline maps and the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 Platform.
The Wear OS watch has over 70 exercise modes including running, cycling, skiing, surfing and everything in between. This is coupled with on-board GPS and the typical fitness goodies such as heart rate, sleep tracking and barometer for elevation readings.
The new variant of Suunto 7 has appeared online. The delivery date is listed as April 21st according to Amazon which already allows you to pre-order the watch.
The interesting news seems to be that this one will be made of titanium. Hence it sells for $499 which is about $100 more than the regular iteration.
It is difficult to deduce if there’s anything different about the internals as there’s no mention of this in the listings. Don’t get your hopes up about at Qualcomm 4100 chip, though. We suspect the hardware is the same, it is the build that has changed. Particularly as the FCC ID for the new watch is identical to the old model.
The images do show some new software features such as more detailed sleep tracking and wake-up resources. It is likely, though, that this will come to current models via a software update.
There are several options listed for pre-order. The new Suunto 7 can be picked up in Matte Black/Titanium and Stone Grey/Titanium.
Suunto 9 Peak is also coming soon
Another Suunto watch that is coming soon is the Suunto 9 Peak. This is according to an FCC filing that was published two weeks ago.
This will be a high-end sports watch with 80 sports modes, 100 meter water-resistance a barometer, stress and recovery information and more. It is not exactly clear what the difference between this model and the Suunto 9 Baro will be. The documentation does mention an “ultra-thin” look and a more pliable strap is on the packaging, so it might come down to design once again.
