From the manufacturer
Suunto has been at the forefront of design and innovation for sports watches and instruments for over 80 years. The word “Suunto” comes from the Finnish word meaning “direction.” Suunto is pronounced “Soon-toh.”
SUUNTO Spartan Trainer Wrist Hr
Suunto Spartan Trainer Wrist HR is a beautifully designed GPS watch with optimal fit, ready to train how you want – whether you swim, cycle, hit the gym or run trails. Featuring convenient wrist heart rate measurement, the Trainer tracks your activity, calories, and steps 24/7. Versatile sport and outdoor features make Spartan Trainer a natural partner as you push the city limits – and your own!
Ready For All Your Sports
Training with Spartan Trainer is simple and enjoyable. It uses GPS to measure speed, pace, distance and altitude. With 80 sport modes pre-installed to the watch, it is ready for nearly any sport, right out of the box. Sport-specific displays for running, cycling and swimming display relevant, real-time training data based on clear graphs.
Stay Active And Fit
Clear, easy-to-follow color graphs provide 24/7 feedback about your activity levels, while daily targets for steps and calories help you stay fit. A daily heart rate screen also displays your minimum (rest) heart rate, making it easier to monitor recovery. Wear the watch overnight and you will see how many hours you sleep and your average heart rate during the night. View a summary of your activity levels on a 7-day or 30-day trend.
Expand Your Boundaries
True to Suunto’s outdoor and adventure heritage, the Spartan Trainer comes with GPS route navigation and an automatic breadcrumb view, making it easy to discover new routes and places, yet ensuring you will always find your way back home. Join the Suunto Movescount service to create routes of your own, or browse new training locations and routes using heatmaps.
Boasting many of the best features of the more expensive Spartan Sport Series into a streamlined and attractive package, the Suunto Spartan Trainer Wrist Heart Rate is a superb deal for anyone seeking a low-profile training watch packed with a boatload of innovative features. First of all, you'll find its optical heart rate sensor by Valencell delivers accurate measurements of your heart rate--all without dealing with a pesky chest strap. Heart rate monitoring is crucial for gauging your cardio endurance during a grueling workout or outdoor activity, as well as estimating when you're fully recovered afterwards. This heart rate monitoring is built into your 24/7 daily activity tracking as well, measuring your lowest resting heart rate on a daily basis for estimating your overall fitness levels. The Spartan Trainer Wrist Heart Rate features sport-specific displays to your intended activity, such as running, cycling, and swimming. A great feature for the dedicated triathlete, runner, cyclist, or swimmer, these sport-specific displays display relevant, real-time data on your training efforts. If you're more of an adventure seeker, the 80-plus sport modes are available through Suunto's MovesCount app for iOS, Android, Apple computers, and PCs. These different sport modes range from hiking to ski touring, giving you a wide breadth of available disciplines to suit your on-the-go lifestyle. Another big feature for a watch in this category is the GPS-based activity tracking and navigation. The built-in GPS receiver quickly locks onto satellites to record your distance and speed, as well as providing outdoor maps with routes of popular biking and hiking trails, provided you've loaded them before heading out into nature. GPS-based route navigation means you'll always know where you're going and the breadcrumb navigation trail helps you return back to where you started without getting lost along the way. Best of all, Suunto's MovesCount app has numerous HeatMaps produced by...

I've been using GPS/HR devices since 2010, including Suunto, Polar, Garmin. Without question, the features, customizations & apps on (and available for) the Spartan Trainer is quite impressive. There's a lot here for $279.
Suuntos can sometimes have laggy user interfaces. Such is not the case with this model. It's responsive. The screen is not touch sensitive which really comes down to preference. I prefer buttons both in function & idea. Suunto has always seemed like the Vitamix to Garmin's Blendtec.
When I say this watch is customizable, I mean you can have up to 7 data fields. A bit much, no, but you get my point. I won't parrot the long list of features you can easily read above. I will say that Spartan has to given me a glitch free experience so far.
I haven't used the Trainer for swimming, so I cannot vouch for its accuracy or performance in water.... yet.
I've tons of ANT software preloaded on my new Samsung... but no ANT functionality on the Spartan. ...and who cares? It's all about Bluetooth. With the optical heart rate monitor, you needn't use either type of connectivity. When it comes time to sync or use add ons, we've Bluetooth on our phones, cars, computers. I don't miss ANT.
I always shoot for discerning reviews. Heretofore, I've no major complaints. Although there are more deluxe watches with even more features & perhaps better performance in the water, you won't find a better buy under $300 & most folks don't need to spend twice as much.
Spartan Trainer works well, has lots of features, good battery life and is priced very competitively. If any issues arise, or newly found goodies, I'll surely update my review. Til then, it's a fine device.
The hardware of this watch is very nice. But unfortunately at this point Suunto's whole software system in terms of watch-mobile app-web application is just really inconsistent and incomplete. As I mention below I had tried out Garmin's platform when using the Forerunner 235 for a while. In comparison to Garmin, Suunto's Spartan ecosystem is badly lacking at this point.
The pain points why I returned the Suunto Spartan Trainer are:
- there are no structured training programs at this point. While Garmin's training programs are fantastic and sync and update any changes automatically between web app, mobile app and phone, Suunto's workout basically consist in a written text only on the phone. Want to change the day of the week or the date for your planned move... good luck, you have to get back to the computer to do so.
- the mobile app shows only very very little info... mainly only the recorded activities.
- 24/7 heart rate and sleep gets recorded on the watch but don't seem to appear on movescount for a historic timeline.
- the Trainer does GPS elevation.... and it doesn't do it so well. On my trail runs with 30-100 meters ascent/descent doing a loop with same start/end point. On movescount the start/end point are typically 20-30 meters height difference... but they are the same spot... I get that GPS elevation can be off, but why does Suunto not do auto-correct when importing to movescount using topo maps as all other systems do.
- data screens for activities can only be changed on the computer. it is ok but not helpful when experimenting with different setups. why not do it on the watch directly also as Garmin does it.
In the end I decided to take the expensive jump and get a Garmin Forerunner 935 and I find it just a much much better experience overall. Yes, it is $500 but then, the Trainer runs pretty much the same watch software as all the other Spartans (Sport, Ultra) which cost in the $500 and up, so there was no hope for me with Suunto. It is quite bizarre going over Suunto user reviews and forum entries. It seems that their old Ambit series is more appreciated then the current Spartan line. But why would you buy into an old tech at this point when the company invests all resources to improve the newer Spartan platform?
I really wanted to like Suunto but am just happier with Garmin in the end.
I recently got back into road and trail running and I used a TomTom Spark 3 cardio for the past year. The Spark 3 was great for the route navigation feature which I use a lot on the trails. It was also accurate in measuring wrist based HR but I became frustrated with the very unreliable pace metrics and the HR for me was prone to multiple interruptions on many runs, requiring taking off, wipe, putting back on etc...
I tried the Garmin forerunner 235 which is great feature wise but does not have any route navigation which I simply don't want to do without. I tried the connect iq app called dwMaps which offers route navigation but wasn't happy as using it essentially does not allow you to use any of the standard Garmin interface and metrics during your run and it is also a bit slow.
Then along comes this Suunto Spartan Trainer and after a couple weeks of using it I am super happy with it. For under $300 it does very accurate and reliable HR, pace, cadence while running - all super important metrics to improve running. And it does route navigation very well.
I currently run 5K-11K distances 3 times a week on trail and some on road or treadmill and can recommend this watch without reservation.
