Suunto 7 review: Still a hardcore fitness watch


The Suunto 7 is the company's first WearOS smartwatch, and it's made to attract Suunto's hardcore fans, and appeal to newcomers with its lifestyle-driven look.

Comprehensive fitness features ; Two-day battery life ; Smooth performance and software ; Hard-wearing, water resistant case

Annoying buttons can frustrate ; Expensive compared to the competition ; Only best for dedicated fitness fans

Suunto 7 Wear OS GPS Watch In-Depth Review


Let's get this out of the way right from the first line: The Suunto 7 is both the best smartwatch they've ever made, while concurrently being the worst sport watch they've ever made. Fear not though, you don't have to take my word for it – by the end...

Suunto 7 review: You win some, you lose some


The Suunto 7 is a solid first effort as a full-fledged smartwatch, but I'm not convinced going with Wear OS was the right move. There are software limitations that make the Suunto 7 feel less like a traditional GPS fitness watch, and the lack of...

Durable, high-end design ; Solid performance ; Accurate GPS and heart rate sensors ; Plenty of workout modes and health features ; Two-day battery life

Activity metrics split up between Suunto app and Google Fit ; Incompatible with external HR sensors ; Wear OS has limitations that hinder the overall experience ; Too pricey for the feature set

Suunto 7 runs Wear OS with Snapdragon Wear 3100’s 12-hour Sports mode


GPS watches geared towards sports and the great outdoors have existed long before today's smart wearables. Garmin and Suunto are namesakes in that category with the latter today announcing its first Wear OS device. The Suunto 7 is very much aimed at...

Suunto 7 review


A full review of the Suunto 7 running smartwatch

Terrific physical design Screen is beautiful Fast and responsive Runs Wear OS

Screen can chew through the battery Have to juggle both Suunto app and Google Fit Sports can’t be customised

Great if you want a beautiful smartwatch and basic stats on your multi-sport life. However, this does require compromise as the Suunto 7 suffers from middling battery life that puts the brakes on extreme adventures Suunto is renowned for, and some...

Suunto 7 review: new Wear OS powered running watch is a Fitbit Versa 2 on steroids


Is the Suunto 7 a smartwatch, a running watch, a fitness tracker or maybe all of them?

Large screen ; Downloadable maps ; Wear OS smart functionality and integrations ; Touchscreen

Battery life short (for a running watch) ; Expensive ; Laggy touchscreen ; Dual app (Wear OS, Suunto App) control on phone is confusing

Suunto 7 review: Sporting skills on Wear OS


The company's first foray into Google's Wear OS makes for a more smarts-focused sportswatch. But does its running of multiple systems make sense?

Accurate tracking ; Good battery life in exercise tracking ; Comfortable to wear ; Great display ; Offline mapping ; Google Pay

Expensive ; No route guidance ; Maps a bit disconnected ; Exercise and lifestyle tracking use different systems

With good battery life from a Google Wear OS watch, the Suunto 7 is off to a good start. But it's expensive and some of the features seem at odds with their potential.

Suunto 7


The Suunto 7 is a smartwatch aimed at those who exercise outdoors, and with Wear OS support, it's more than a simple fitness tracker.

Suunto 7 review


Is this rugged wrist-hugger really worth more than an Apple Watch?

Attractive, solid build ; Bright, sharp, punchy screen ; Comprehensive sports tracking ; Hardware buttons with handy shortcuts

Expensive ; Daily charging with heavier use

An attractive, comprehensive fitness tracker with Android Wear smarts, but a little too pricey for most

Suunto 7 review: The best Wear OS watch for fitness enthusiasts


The Suunto 7 combines both smartwatch and sports watch facilities in one

Very comfortable and responsive ; Heatmap feature is great ; Comprehensive sport tracking

Short battery life by sports watch standards ; Can't customise data screens

However, there’s no ignoring the fact that both battery life and customisation options are limited compared with serious sports watches. That means that although I do like the Suunto 7, it’s hard to recommend wholeheartedly for those who take their...
