Streamline durability beside dynamic performance; five words to frame the focus behind SUUNTO’S new 9 Peak Pro.

Meticulously engineered via entirely reusable energy, 9 Peak Pro beckons as a compact GPS sport watch to take the next mission to the next level.

From Finland with love, SUUNTO’s team of exacting artisans have specifically crafted their 9 Peak Pro for maximum performance in any environment. From underwater to on top of a mountain, and capped with a reservation by the window; this newly unveiled, all-in-one rig is fully-capable of changing the game.

Attention to detail is apparent immediately in the 9 Peak Pro. Resourcing premium-grade materials, the design builds upon its award-winning predecessor, the 9 Peak. SUUNTO put the beat-down on it latest sport watch, all but throwing the actual kitchen sink at the curvaceous new unit, just to ensure it can take a lickin’ but keep on tickin’ (Pun intended).

The 9 Peak Pro is SUUNTO’s graduate thesis on in-destruct-o elegance, achieved with environmental responsibility.

Scandinavian to the bone, SUUNTO’s hawk-eyed priority upon “dotting all the i’s” is the groundwork behind the company’s innovation and subsequent success. And it’s been that way since this Finnish crew got cranking back in 1936. Today, SUUNTO is a go-to name in global adventuring with products and service ranging compasses, digital support networks, dive computers and, of course, tricked-out sport watches.

Testing the unit in the field, 9 Peak Pro was unfazed by the elements.

At the 10,400ft summit of Rendezvous Mountain, smack dab in the middle of an aggressive snow-blender wind storm, the performance of the 9 Peak Pro is snap-quick, absolutely accurate, and never wavered. In truth, the sport watch arguably out-performed the numb human fingers attempting to operate its features.

And the light-weight yet heavy-duty rubber wrist band of the 9 Peak Pro means the unit holds tight, even under sudden (or volatile) force. This is particular handy when tomahawking down a face in thigh deep snow. SUUNTO can’t promise just about everything else won’t be lost in that yard sale, but its 9 Peak Pro will stay put.

Turning from outward-bound to the 9-to-5, the 9 Peak Pro is still a daily driver.

The 9 Peak Pro notifies of in-coming calls, IM, or emails with audio as well as vibration alerts, and the clear, readable face displays those updates in large icons or text as soon they arrive. And it syncs easily and quickly with a personal device, so things like phones, iPad or Android tablets can remain safe and sound inside a pocket or pack.

SUUNTO’s 9 Peak Pro is established as the mission kit that won’t quit.

And the company wants to hand one out—for FREE.
