According to a new leak, Suunto could soon launch a new premium smartwatch ! The wearable is the Suunto 9 Peak Pro, an improved version of the original Suunto 9 Peak that the Finnish brand launched last year. Both the price and the most important functions are mentioned – there are a few surprises.
- Suunto 9 Peak Pro has been leaked with an improved battery and new color.
- Upcoming smartwatch from Suunto will offer battery life of up to 21 days.
- Suunto 9 Peak Pro could go on sale at a price of €499.
The well-known leaker snoopytech has published a series of images of the Suunto 9 Peak Pro. The watch, which has not yet been officially pre-ordered, is said to offer no major changes, but it does mention that the battery life is significantly better than the non-Pro model. The Suunto 9 Peak Pro should therefore offer a battery life of up to 21 days or 40 hours with the GPS switched on. For comparison: the predecessor offers 14 days or 25 hours with activated GPS.
The longer runtime could be due to a larger battery capacity or a more efficient wearable chipset. The smartwatch is also unlikely to be equipped with Wear OS as its predecessor runs on Suunto’s own operating system. As a reminder, only the Suunto 7 Peak was launched using Google’s wearable platform.
Specs and price of the Suunto 9 Peak Pro
Aside from the impressive battery, the Suunto 9 Peak Pro is expected to have the same thin and premium design, including a stainless steel body and sapphire crystal protection, as Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5 . The touch-sensitive display is said to still measure 1.2 inches, but users can use the same navigation buttons on the right. More importantly, along with the health and fitness features, fans could also see new colors and watch faces with the new smartwatch.
The leak suggests that the Suunto 9 Peak Pro could go on sale for €499. That would be slightly more expensive than the Suunto 9 Peak’s current price of €469 in the euro zone. It is expected that Suunto will also lower the US list price of the Suunto 9 Peak once the Pro version is officially announced.
