Suunto has long designed watches for hardcore outdoor athletes, like divers, climbers and runners. It's now making bigger a play for more everyday lifestyle adventurers and explorers. A few weeks ago, we saw the Traverse GPS watch, and next Suunto will launch the Kailash, a watch for world travelers.
Back in 2012, Suunto set a high benchmark in outdoor navigation watches with the Ambit, now in its third generation. While the Ambit series has comprised some venerable performers, not every outdoor user needs a high-powered, multi-sport wrist computer. For "aspiring outdoor enthusiasts" Suunto has added the Traverse – a simpler watch with key features like GPS/GLONASS navigation.
