Train harder, faster, and smarter with ultimate training tool SUUNTO Spartan Ultra!

In classical history, no other breed of warrior has struck fear into rival civilizations such as the Spartans. Trained to deal with adversity and succeed against seemingly impossible odds, the Spartan warriors continue to inspire modern day feats of heroism among athletes who drive themselves to ever higher peaks of excellence.

Today’s athletes need not fight to the death to excel but then the same ethos that drove the ancient Greeks to heroic feats is what drives today’s competitive warriors. The hunger for excellence and passion for continuous progress drives the modern day Spartans. Whether it is in the pursuit of running, cycling, triathlon, powerlifting, or plain and simple badassery, the Spartan athlete is about pushing the boundaries of human potential—to work harder than the rest, to keep going when others are about to quit, and to be the last one standing. It is the passion to progress.  It is about being part of Team Progress Beyond Logic.


Finnish company SUUNTO, known for its tough-as-nails-line of wrist-top computers, unleashes its first most capable device and training tool made specifically for the unbreakable athlete: the Spartan Ultra (SU). Featuring a space grade titanium bezel, high contrast color touchscreen display, and a multitude of features in its quiver, the SU is what a modern day warrior needs!

Key Features

•Titanium bezel and proven durability make SU light and incredibly tough, enough to take the knocks and drops of everyday training without skipping a beat.

•Outdoor grade color screen provides high contrast display, which is easily visible under any light condition. SU’s intuitive menu lets the wearer easily set features according to athlete’s training needs.

•Preset sport modes are designed for the multisport athlete.  Preset modes include cycling, outdoor/indoor running, swimming, weight training, and more. These can be further customized in the Movescount site.

• Multi-info display shows three to eight lines of information depending on the mode, reducing the need to scroll between display modes, and distract one from the workout.

•20-200H battery life, efficient Bluetooth, and GPS technology minimize energy consumption—a must for IRONMAN athletes, ultra distance runners, and multiday trekkers.

•Its Bluetooth connectivity can be paired with SUUNTO cadence/HR pods, third party devices like power meters, and can also be synced to a mobile phone for e-mail alerts.

•Provides smart training insights every time SU is sync at the Movescount site where athletes have access to helpful training metrics such as time in Training Zones, Training Effect, Exercise Post Oxygen Consumption, and training logs.

•Community powered progress is another feature that offers connectivity to the Movescount community, and where athletes can reach out to coaches, discover new routes using the heat maps, and even plan next ride or run by downloading the route to SU.

•Personal best and peer group training insights function informs the wearer when a new Personal Best or Personal Record is hit during a workout as well as compares performance with fellow athletes.
