Suunto 3 Fitness – How to calibrate speed and distance measurement


Suunto 3 Fitness can track your speed and
distance while you are running and walking based on your wrist movement. For it to be accurate, you need to
teach your watch how to run and walk. In other words, you need to calibrate it. You will need: Your Suunto 3 Fitness and your phone with Suunto app installed. The easiest way to calibrate your watch is to record your
first running and walking exercises with connected GPS. To use the connected GPS, simply open the Suunto app
and make sure your watch is paired with the app. Now scroll up to Exercise and choose Running or Walking. Both exercises need to be calibrated separately because
your stride lenght is different between running and walking. Once the GPS arrow turns green,
your watch is connected to your phone. Now, enjoy your run – and keep
your phone with you on the move. Run or walk for at least 15 min at your
normal speed and try to keep the pace steady. The calibration is done automatically in the background. After your run, simply end the exercise. Your watch is now calibrated. To get great calibration results,
repeat the process several times. Then you’re all set to exercise without connected GPS. And that was it. Another way to calibrate your watch is by manually
adjusting the recorded distance after your run or walk. Start a Running or Walking exercise. The key for this way of calibration is that you
know the exact distance you were running or walking and that you exercise at least for
15 min at a normal, steady pace. Once you finished your training, end the exercise. Great! Scroll through the exercise summary to distance and calibrate the watch by adding
the actual distance you ran or walked. Your watch is now calibrated. The more often you repeat the calibration process, the more accurate speed and distance will be.
