M4 and M5 SUUNTO WATCHES

JUST OUT: NEW WATCHES FROM HARD CORE BRAND THAT's WAY BEYOND JUST KEEPING TIME

WORDS Judith Ecochard

In the Tri World of Training---heart monitors, acronyms for this and that (CAD…EPOC wha?) and data about our efforts on the upload…are a new universe of numerals and charts...



WE LOVE the new addition to our gadget stash that goes with the swim, bike, run--- our Suunto T6c watch that gives us feedback on every aspect/nuance of what we train for. It’s more like our scuba dive watches that are really portable computers.

No wonder…Suunto is acclaimed for it’s high tech design, quality construction and ACCURACY. Trust us, not true with the competition.

And mercifully, SUUNTO HAS excellent customer service with real  and really patient humans picking up the telephone---to walk us through every step….

WHAT’S NEW:

The new M-Series watches are snazzy and functional timepieces---  for fitness fans who track their training--- and also for the casual weekend warrior.


For the Suunto M4 ---the watch has programmed... (and we quote the release)
