This Suunto monitor has an understated but masculine style and boasts a good level of technology, notably via the ANT+ communication that permits bike and running peripherals to be integrated into your training.
The bundled foot pod doesn’t compare to the micro offering from Garmin, but it’s still lightweight and certainly a cost-effective equivalent to a bulky GPS. The T3c also comes with a superbly comfortable heart rate belt, which sits neatly and without irritation no matter what you wear over it.
The user interface is a tad confusing, but this is mainly due to the controls, which are poorly labelled on the bezel. With a bit of practice you’ll soon be getting the best out of it.
