Suunto 7 comes with a set of pre-installed watch faces to choose from. You can also download many others from Google Play Store.
All watch faces designed by Suunto are optimized to use a minimum amount of power to provide you with the best possible day-to-day experience with your watch.
Suunto 7 comes with four watch faces by Suunto – Heatmap, Original, Marine and Rose – to celebrate the history of Suunto and the community of passionate athletes and adventurers around the world.
To inspire and encourage you to explore the outdoors around you, the Heatmap watch face shows where other passionate Suunto athletes have been exercising in your area.
By default, the heatmap will show popular running routes in your area. If running is not your thing, you can go to the watch face settings and choose another sport for your heatmap. Suunto 7 has 15 different heatmaps to choose from.
The heatmap on your watch face is automatically updated based on your location. If you do not see a heatmap or the map does not update based on your location, check these:
In 1936, Tuomas Vohlonen founded Suunto to mass produce stable and accurate compasses after he had long been bothered by the inaccuracy and lack of steady needle operation of traditional dry compasses. Ever since, the Suunto compasses and connected Suunto method have provided essential tools for navigation for outdoor enthusiasts, athletes and professionals. The Original watch face design is inspired by the very first Suunto marching compass, M-311.
Between 1953 and 2011 Suunto was in the marine compass market. The Marine watch face is inspired by the popular Suunto K-14 marine compass, which became a standard in a large number of sail and power boats around the world due to the stable and easy to read compass card and the smart mounting into the vessel.
The Rose watch face is inspired by the Suunto pocket TK-3 compass which was inspired by old marine compasses with compass roses. TK-3 compass was a tribute to the endeavors of explorers filling out the whites of the world atlas using a compass, the stars and ropes as their main means of position finding.
You can change your watch face at any time to match your goals, needs and style.
You can also go to Settings » Display » Change watch face or change your watch face in the Wear OS by Google app on your phone.
With most watch faces, you can add additional functions to your watch face, such as shortcuts to apps, weather information or daily steps. Different watch faces may have a different set of complications available.
All watch faces designed by Suunto are optimized to use a minimum amount of power to provide you with the best possible day-to-day experience. When you add a new watch face from Google Play Store, keep in mind that other watch faces might not be optimized the same way.
When a watch face is hidden, you will see it in the Wear OS by Google app on your phone, but not on your watch.
You can also manage your watch faces in the Wear OS by Google app on your phone. Under the image of your watch, next to watch faces, tap More.
