Suunto Spartan watches to get HR zone training with new update

Suunto has finally listened to its customers and rolled out an update to its Spartan line of fitness watches, that will bring heart rate zones for the first time.

The update from Suunto to its Spartan range of sports watches will enable the user to be able to check your current intensity level with just a quick glance. While exercising, you can see in real-time how long you have spent in each HR zone and how many beats you have in reserve until you move on to the next. After the exercise, a breakdown of the time in each zone is displayed in the summary.

As with most sports watch like Garmin, this has been a standard feature for some time, but this is s welcome move by Suunto and one I am looking forward to testing out. The HR zones will be set to default, but you can customise them to match your own heart rate profile
