Suunto what is it up your sleeve?

Suunto launched a new tease campaign today - they will be launching a new device that will be announced on May 26th. The teaser site is live, but does not reveal much. From the looks of it the unit will have most likely GPS built in and if I would have my way it would be a cross-breed of X10 and T6c. But we will see what is really coming out. You can check the site by clicking on the picture below.

Suunto will also be selecting few people to let them play with the device before the official release and report about them on the web. Well I sent my entry in and will see if I get lucky and get my hands on one. That would be cool especially if the device helps with training and can be worn during races. You know me - gadget freak all the way. Stay tuned to this site and also keep checking the Suunto site for more news.

No worries. You will like the T6c. With HRMs it is like with computers - when you buy one there is another one released or about to be released that is better...

Look at the announcements from Garmin this past few days, new models from Polar and soon new stuff from Suunto.

Got the same info, must slightly disagree: I do also think that it looks like something with GPS (though that may be wishful thinking), but I'm rather sure it will not have anything to do with the training series... there are too many hints towards it being a device for "urban adventure" (whatever that may mean...).
