This week, the adventure watch specialist has supplemented its high-performance 9 Peak series with a high-end variant for smooth transitions from the office to the outdoors.

Suunto has long sought to dominate the sports watch pack with high-tech models that also prioritize weight and portability. Now, its new 9 Peak Full Titanium Black edition targets more refined tastes.

And it’s one of the few times we’ve seen titanium used to make gear. heavier. Here are the details.

The most recent update to the top of the Suunto range is the 9 Peak fitness watch, which offered a best-in-class 170-hour battery life and over 80 sport modes. And all this in a package that is almost 40% lighter than its predecessor.

Down that? Suunto goes there with the new titanium successor, in the only way possible: with steez. The watch’s “diamond-shaped” beveled titanium cuff is striking enough to stand out in the sports category, yet understated enough to feel like it belongs there.

And bonus points for the brand: it forged the new 9 Peak using 100% renewable and carbon-neutral processes.
