Suunto Vector HR Heart Rate Monitor Watch and Altimeter is custom made for heart rate monitoring during outdoor adventures. The Suunto Vector HR Monitor is your tool for peak performance, whether you're already on the mountain or training to get there. Armed with an altimeter, barometer, electronic compass, and heart rate monitor, this Suunto heart rate watch gives you the information you need to make responsible decisions in the great, vertical outdoors. The Suunto Vector HR Watch includes a Suunto Comfort Belt made from soft textile materials and equipped with unique traction strips to keep it in place, eliminating the need to over-tighten. The tools packed into this precision wristwatch from Suunto include:
Heart Rate Measurement: It's not just the external conditions that matter when you're climbing. What's going on inside your body can make the difference between a great adventure and a miserable ordeal. The Suunto Vector HR Monitor lets you set zone alarms to let you know when your heart rate is climbing faster than you are—or when your training regimen is too easy. Training for a climb with the heartrate monitor gives you an objective measure of exertion, whether you're doing a long, steady hike, or short intervals of intense bursts of energy in the gym. You'll also be able to avoid overtraining by monitoring your resting HR first thing in the morning.
Altimeter: The Suunto altimeter watch features a range up to 9,000 m / 29,500 ft, putting all 14 of the world's 8,000+ meter summits within your reach. The Suunto Vector HR measures your vertical speed, and works with the heartrate monitor so you can see the physiological impact of both altitude and vertical rate of movement. You can set altitude alarms to remind you when you're reaching another limit, while the automatic 24-hour memory stores the altitude and ascent/descent rate for every hour, and lets you record other intervals. With the logbook, you can see and compare all of your ups and downs as it records your total and cumulative vertical ascents and descents.
Barometer: The Suunto Vector HR Monitor Watch displays real-time barometric pressure and temperature, giving you a heads-up on weather conditions. Check the weather trend graph or the past four days' barometric data with the digital barometer, which records the data automatically. When the reference altitude is set correctly, the Suunto Vector HR Barometer Watch also shows the present sea level pressure, making it easier for you to read and understand the barometric pressure at high altitudes. Just don't forget that in the mountains, the detected barometric pressure also changes when you are moving in a vertical direction, which can make predicting the weather a bit more complicated.
Compass: The digital compass guides you with cardinal or half-cardinal points and a north-south arrow. Set the Suunto compass to track a bearing of your choosing, and your Suunto Vector HR Compass Watch helps you get around in unknown terrain. The declination adjustment function allows you to correct the difference between true north and magnetic north for a more accurate reading.
Time: The Suunto Vector HR Watch displays the current time in 12- or 24-hour format and includes three daily alarms and a calendar. Use the chronograph to support your training sessions with the split-time stopwatch, countdown timer, and interval timer.
