Combining Suunto’s decades worth of versatile sports and outdoor expertise with the helpful smartwatch features from Wear OS by Google provides an incredible opportunity for us to inspire new and expanding audiences to explore their surroundings, wherever those adventures might take them.”Heikki Norta, Chief Digital Officer and President of Connected Devices and Digital Services at Amer Sports Corporation (Suunto’s parent company)
