Suunto Cycling Watches
Suunto cycling watches offer lots of variety and choice for cyclists wanting a single instrument for versatility. The data quality is excellent, the chest straps are among the most comfortable available and you have loads of options.
Heart Rate Watch Company chief tester John Yarington said the watch was actually better as a bike computer than it was as a watch. With the Magellan battery extender pack you can ride over 16 hours in GPS mode which beats most GPS bike computers. The Magellan Switch Up can also get power output from ANT+ power meters, speed, ditance, heart rate and elevations via a barometric altimeter.
SUUNTO GPS CYCLING WATCHES
The Suunto Ambit is a high-end GPS watch with barometer, altimeter, post ride maps, heart rate data and more. This watch is excellent for road biking, mountain biking and packs a whooping 16 hours plus of battery life even at one second recording intervals.
Suunto M5, Suunto Quest and Suunto t6d can also be GPS based cycling watches if you get a Suunto GPS pod to go with these heart rate monitor watch units. The real-time delivery of speed, distance and heart rate by GPS makes these watch units very useful for cycling and you can even add a Suunto cadence pod to receive bike pedal cadence as well, so these watches will deliver every major metric with the exception of watts.
SUUNTO CYCLING WATCHES WITH MAGNET BASED SENSORS
All of the Suunto watches mentioned above can be used with magnet based sensors although it would be a waste of time with the Suunto Ambit since it is Suunto's only current fully integrated GPS watch, meaning the GPS is built-in. Otherwise you can get a speed sensor and cadence sensor for any of these other watches since it is a bit cheaper than the GPS pod option.
The Suunto Ambit is still the best darn GPS watch in the world, with the small exception of triathletes who may want to check out the Garmin Forerunner 910XT, otherwise the Suunto Ambit rules the GPS landscape in our opinion.
