Suunto is a popular name when it comes to Sports watches. The Suunto 9 Peak is the latest entry from the Finnish vendor and it offers some pretty handy features.

Among them, the Snap to Route feature which helps to store accurate GPS tracks. While the said functionality was said to be a part of Suunto 9 Peak, users of Suunto 9 Baro and Suunto 5 are in for a surprise.

The latest updates for Suunto 9 and Suunto 5 bring along the Snap to Route option for efficient GPS tracking.

Now, users can grab the said feature with update version 2.16.26 and 2.16.28 for Suunto 9 and Suunto 5 respectively.

Also, the Suunto 5 and 9 are getting support for Padel (sport), SuuntoPlus Ghost runner, New watch face from Suunto 3, Suunto app time sync and pairing, and raise to wake.

Both updates are now live for Suunto 9 and Suunto 5 so those who have not yet updated their sports watches should do so now.

Apart from that, Suunto 3 is also getting the update to version 2.16.28 with the Padel, raise to wake, and Suunto app time sync and pairing support.

Moreover, the Chinese variants of all the said sports watches are getting support for Traditional Chinese.


However, the Snap to Route feature is not available for the Suunto 3 sports watch from the Finnish vendor.

It is still good to see that Suunto is updating its older GPS watches with such handy features making them more efficient.

Hopefully, the said GPS track functionality comes out to more sports watches from Suunto in the future.
