Suunto Traverse GPS Watch review for The Great Outdoors


I've been using altimeter watches for over twenty years now and have always found them very useful. Just being able to glance at your wrist for information, whether time or altitude, is quick and convenient. The addition of GPS makes such watches even better. The latest one I've tried is the Suunto Traverse. My thoughts are now on the TGO website here.

  2. Battery life is always a concern with GPS watches. Though GPS is handy I think it takes away part of the enjoyment of exploring the wildness when you let technology do the thinking for you. Just my opinion. Thanks.

  3. I can get nothing like the claimed battery life from the Suunto Traverse, despite reducing the frequency of GPS fixes to 'OK' or once a minute, which is what the manual advises to extend battery life. The most I have managed is 10 hours but normally shorter, well below claims. This limits the Traverse's utility significantly. Has anyone found a fix that works?

  4. This watches are very good. They shows the correct latitude and longitude data all the time. This devices are almost like Real-Time GPS Vehicle Tracking device. I used Garmin Forerunner before. Will try Suunto Traverse this time. Thanks.
