GPS Watches with a Compass

For greater accuracy, we advise you to activate the function FusedAlti.

Compass

The Traverse has a digital compass indicating the magnetic North, a handy tool to identify from a topographical map. The inclination is automatically corrected, ie the compass remains reliable even if the watch is not horizontal. It is also possible to correct the declination (difference between magnetic north and true north)

The compass uses GPS and accelerometer. The downside is that it mobilizes the accelerometer and prevents counting the number of steps while recording a route or navigation. Too bad.

Battery life

Suunto has opted for a powerful battery for its Traverse watch and a battery life of 14 days in fashion shows and 10 to 100 hours in tracking mode and GPS navigation (according to GPS recording rate: 1s, 5s or 60s).

You should know that the GPS consumes a lot of battery. For trekking trips of several days, you will reduce the GPS recording rate (or disable GPS if you do not need) for maximum autonomy but less precision of the layout and navigation. You also can activate the GLONASS only when needed (Suunto warned that activation of GLONASS in addition to the battery consumption).

First use

The start-up and installation of the application dedicated to the exploitation of the data of the watch (Movescount) are very simple and fast.You will need to activate the watch by pressing a button, fill some parameters (age, sex, weight, language, unit system), recharge via USB cable, install the application on your PC or smartphone from the site www.movescount.com/connect and finally create an account. Whenever you then connect the watch to your PC (USB cable) or your smartphone (bluetooth), the Movescount application starts automatically to read data from the watch and possibly update its software.

Settings

The settings and customization of the watch are made directly from the watch or through Movescount application. Only the calibration of the compass and altimeter must be done directly from the watch.

Like TomTom runner smartwatches reviewed by Shoppingpicks.net, the Suunto allows you to define a usage profile of the watch according to the type of activity performed (hiking, mountaineering, etc.) favoring the display is the altitude (for mountain sports, for example) or the atmospheric pressure (for boat trips, for example). There is also an automatic profile which adapts to the profile of the course, from one profile to another according to the movements of the user.

shortcut buttons

For more efficient use, Suunto has programmed each of the Traverse button to activate the main features: starting / stopping a recording, main menu display or the menu for the active function, activation of the flashlight, lock / unlock buttons, recording a point of interest (POI). Everything is done to simplify to the maximum life of the user.

Sporting activities

The Traverse is programmed default Hiking mode, but it is possible to define up to five activities in the watch. The programming is done from the Movescount application that offers more than 70 activities. displays content, recording frequency, GPS checking frequency, etc. can be set for each selected activity. Note that the watch does not automatically make known the transition between activities. It is therefore not suited to triathlon for example.
