The Suunto 3 Fitness is now just known as the Suunto 3, and it features updated casing materials and colors

As part of a rebranding effort, the product formerly known as Suunto 3 Fitness is now referred to as just Suunto 3. This is more consistent with the naming convention that the corporation uses for its other products and gadgets in its range.

 There are now some new design choices available, but the features themselves have not changed in any way. This was disclosed by the Finnish organization in a press release that was kept somewhat under wraps.

Furthermore, the watch is now entirely manufactured in Finland, whereas previously it was developed in Finland but manufactured in China.It’s possible that this is one of the reasons why it’s so much more expensive now. Because of this, people are beginning to speculate that Suunto 3 Fitness may be discontinued in the near future.

In terms of design, the previous device and the Suunto 3 are diametrically opposed. Instead of being constructed out of glass fiber reinforced polyamide, the case is now built out of ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) plastic. The material is noted for its excellent resistance to both physical impacts and chemicals, and it can be produced with a very low level of difficulty. The watch has the same weight, the same material for the bezel, and the same material for the glass.

Moss Grey, Slate Grey, Slate Grey Copper, Granite Red, and Pebble White are the new hues that have been introduced. The original is also available in a variety of additional colors, including copper, gold, black, sakura, ocean, and burgundy, among others.

If you go to the company’s website and compare the characteristics of the Suunto 3 and the Suunto 3 Fitness, you won’t find any significant distinctions between the two models. Everything else, including the battery life, water resistance, and features, is exactly the same.

The pricing has been adjusted accordingly. The price of the Suunto 3 has increased to $229, which is approximately a quarter higher than the price of the Suunto 3 Fitness. I’m not sure if this can be explained by a straightforward modification to the design, so it’s possible that you’d be better off purchasing the older device for the time being. If, on the other hand, you think the new device would better suit your needs, you may pre-order it now, and it will begin arriving on the 31st of January.
