2008 collection includes first ever training range designed for women Suunto, the leading sports instruments brand in the UK, is launching its much anticipated new range of heart rate monitors today. The 2008 collection includes new designs and features as well as Suuntoâ€™s first ever specific womenâ€™s range, perfect for girls to shape up and get fit this summer. The new Suunto training watches will look great wherever you are, easily taking you from the office to the gym. The womenâ€™s range is bang on trend with colours including vibrant orange to chic black, and elegant wrist straps with intricate flower motifs add extra glamour to the line. The new range consists of 11 models in total, starting at Â£50 RRP, and includes the 4 womenâ€™s watches and one cycling accessory. There is a watch for everyoneâ€™s needs, from the introductory level t1 that is great for day-to-day use, to the advanced t6c that sets your training schedule and gives a complete workout analysis on the spot. All models display useful workout details and how to improve next time â€“ itâ€™s like having a personal trainer at your side. The t1c, t3c, t4c and t6c are all supported by a newly improved heart rate monitor belt, worn across the chest. This comfortable belt monitors your heart beat and communicates back to the watch. Based on your heart rate, the Suunto then calculates the amount of calories burned and shows the benefits of the work-out, from fat-burning to improving performance. It is the perfect way to push your boundaries again and again! Suunto is well-known for combining advanced functionality with great design and the new training range doesnâ€™t disappoint. The company made its name in the extreme sports arena and is a firm favourite with world leading climbers, skiers, mountain bikers and skydivers, as well as several English premiership football clubs. Ambassadors include Daniel Unger, World Triathlon Champion. Suunto watches are available from leading shops that specialise in outdoor gear, including Snow & Rock, Field & Track, Cotswold Outdoor, Ellis Brigham, www.sailgb.com, www.heartratemonitor.co.uk and www.facewest.co.uk.
