With the Suunto 7, backcountry navigation has reached a new level of painless ease. It connects to the GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou satellite networks, giving it excellent coverage, no matter where you are on the planet. “I used this watch on a snowy, wet overnight ski trip in Chugach State Park. It did a great job of maintaining satellite connectivity even through thick brush, where other devices lost my track,” one Alaska tester says. Testers also used its heat maps based on other wearers’ tracks to help find the path of least resistance while bushwhacking. In addition to compatibility with Google’s Wear OS system, the watch also works with the Suunto app. The watch’s bright face is large and easily navigable via touchscreen and four large buttons. Both the $399 Suunto 7 and the $499 Suunto 7 Titanium are 20 percent off at REI.
