We should soon be getting the Suunto 9 Peak Pro watch. The €499 device will reportedly come with up to 21 days of battery life, 10 ATM water-proofing, 80 sports modes and a new colour option.
This will be an enhanced version of the vanilla Suunto 9 Peak watch. That one was launched in May 2021. Its claim to fame is that it is the Finnish brand’s thinnest and lightest sports-watch to date and it charges really fast.
Suunto 9 Peak was designed to be more pleasant to wear than anything else the company has produced so far. For comparison purposes, the device is 37% thinner and 36% lighter than Baro. But the case is smaller measuring only 43mm. Inside it you can find a 1.2 inch LCD display.
Information on the Pro version of the same comes from frequent leaker Snoopytech. He shared a set of images of the Suunto 9 Peak Pro, along with some tech specs and pricing.
As can be seen from the images in the tweet, the company has retained the same thin and premium design. This includes the stainless-steel housing and sapphire glass protection. No difference in the touch-enabled display. It has the same measurements alongside the three navigational buttons on the right side. But you do get at least one additional colour – a new green metal case that is paired with a matching nylon strap.
The upgrades are to do with battery life. You now get 21 days between charges or 40 hours with GPS switched on. This improves on the 14 days and 25 hours of the non-pro version. There appear to be two new metal contacts on the back of the watch, which could be for fast charging purposes.
Other than that, you get 10 ATM water-resistance and the 80 sports modes of its non-Pro sibling. No other changes have been revealed as far as specs, so we are expecting the same health and fitness sensors.
Suunto 9 Peak Pro still looks to be running the company’s proprietary OS. If you are looking to take advantage of the Google WearOS platform, 7 Peak is still the brand’s only option.

Much of these information was confirmed by a retail listing on Mediamarkt. This has been removed now but a few promotional images were captured by Notebookcheck. The posting revals that the weight of the watch grows by 2 grams to a total of 64 grams. The device is 10.6 millimeters thick, the supplied strap is 17.5 centimeters long.
Suunto 9 Peak Pro is expected to retail for €499 when it launches, which will make it only €30 more expensive than the current price of Suunto 9 Peak. No suggestions on a possible launch date but we expect it will likely drop before the end of this month, in time for IFA in Berlin.
