Before starting, from the watch itself, that is, without using the app, you can choose different types of training.

You can set career and recovery intervals, both for its duration and its distance, which will allow you to do a good series or fartlek training.

If the goal of your training is a long run, you will be able to walk a previously completed path or create a route through the app, including by registering PDI (Point of Interest) to later make a route to it.

During your running workouts you will have a regular record of duration, distance, speed, heart rate, altitude, calories, cadence, etc. That you can later observe at the various points of your training.

The Suunto 5 watch has the FusedSpeedTM technology, a combination of GPS readings and the wrist acceleration sensor that enables a more accurate reading at stable running speeds and faster responses to speed changes.

It also allows in situations of temporary failure of the GPS signal, such as buildings or tunnels, to continue showing accurate speed readings with the help of the GPS-calibrated accelerometer.
