Faced with Garmin’s strong offensive with the releases of the Venu 2 Plus, the Fenix ​​7 series and the excellent Epix 2, the Finnish manufacturer is presenting its new, much more accessible smart health connected watch.

Design: a lightweight unisex smartwatch

Suunto 5 Peak, the follow-up to 2019’s Suunto 5, is 41% lighter than its predecessor and weighs only 39 grams. To put that into context, it’s significantly lighter than the recently announced Fenix ​​7X which tips the scales towards 80g.

It is equipped with a 43mm case fairly unisex and a 22mm silicone strap, so it shouldn’t be too bulky for smaller wrists.

The screen is a 1.1 inch LCD with a fairly low resolution of 218 x 218 pixels.
