Suunto 9 Peak Pro launch
Press Release / 18.10.2022
The new fully carbon compensated Suunto 9 Peak Pro GPS multisport watch offers a faster, easy-to-use user interface with the best-in-class battery life. All built into an ultra thin and elegant body tested against the highest standard of toughness.
HELSINKI (October 11, 2022) – Suunto is proud to unveil the Suunto 9 Peak Pro, a GPS multisport watch handcrafted with 100% renewable energy in Finland and the first Suunto to have its carbon footprint calculated and then fully compensated with Verified Carbon Units*. During its whole lifespan it creates only 7,5 kg CO2 e – the equivalent of driving a fossil fuel car for 44 km.
As always with Suunto watches, you know to expect rugged durability but how about elegance, too? The Suunto 9 Peak Pro offers both. Building on the award-winning design of the Suunto 9 Peak, it's extremely tough, yet one of the thinnest (10,8 mm) and lightest GPS sport watches in its class. It blends in everywhere, suits smaller wrists and can handle any environment.
Suunto 9 Peak Pro is designed to be long-lasting and repairable to minimize waste and the impact on the environment. Made with the highest grade of materials, Suunto threw everything at it to test its mettle - ice, sand, drops and shocks, pressure and salt. Athletes around the world tested it and it met the military standard of toughness*. Wear it climbing Everest, use the new snorkeling mode to track your depth, record your bike commutes and see how much CO2 e you saved, or pair it with smart-casual dress and head out for dinner. Extremely sleek, extremely versatile.
"The Suunto 9 Peak Pro was engineered with a new, more powerful chipset architecture that boosts the performance to a new level while having the best-in-class battery life compared to similar sized products on the market", says Vice President of Product Sami Männistö. "The new user interface, with bigger icons and digits, as well as the use of white and color background elements make the watch easier to operate and read during sports, allowing sports enthusiasts to focus better on what they do best."
The Suunto 9 Peak Pro offers the best battery life of any Suunto watch yet, with three battery modes: Performance, Endurance and Tour. The battery lasts for 21 days in daily use before requiring charge, 40 h in Performance mode, 70 h in Endurance mode and 300 h in Tour mode. The Suunto 9 Peak Pro can connect with up to four satellite systems ( GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BEIDOU) and up to 32 individual Suunto satellites simultaneously. This results in greater accuracy when exercising in challenging GPS conditions, like below tall buildings or deep mountain valleys.
