Review: Where to start?

Taking on new technology can be a little daunting, but is it worth it?

YES

Suunto 7 will help you get motivated to move.  At face value it's a watch, but really so much more but let's start at the beginning.

Connecting Suunto 7 to your phone is actually a lot easier than I thought, and as you work through the options, you will learn to love it's capabilities. Now add a few personal details like weight, height & gender and you are good to go.

I reccommend starting with the simple one first, let's get moving and track what we do. What better way to self motivate by challenging yourself to do better each day/week. Simply choose the option that best suits you, from walking, running, cycling, swimming, weight training and so much more. View your current steps/distance, and track your progress agains your history.  Use maps to track or select your favourite route. 

Ok he's a handy option, 'find my phone' that in itself is worth it for me, the amount of times I leave my phone in the cupboard, laundry and who knows where....well I like this option very much.

There is also theatre mode, flight mode, do not disturb which are all handy options. There is also a pay option for those wanting to use their watch at the register, which is brilliant if you are out for a run and don't want to carry your phone or card.

Receive and send messages, make calls, it's all here. The only downside was that from full charge I was down to 205 in 5 hours, so if you are planning on doing a day hike not sure it will last the distance. But overall this a great device for tracking your walks, runs, cycling and more.

It's very easy to use and looks gorgeous.
