You're about 12 miles into your long run and wouldn't you know it, your watch has decided it's about to die here on top of this mountain. To prevent your 20+ mile day from becoming a '+ mile day, there's the all new Suunto 9 Baro. Designed to balance battery saving and accurate GPS tracking, this watch is an invaluable tool for the dedicate long-distance athlete. With three distinct battery modes, you can be reassured of long lasting performance when you head out on the trail. You've got 25 hours of battery life with Performance mode, 40 with Endurance, and up to 120 hours with Ultra mode. The Suunto 9 also sends you smart reminders based on your activity history to ensure that you're always charged up for your next run.

Suunto's response to this problem is their FusedTrack algorithm. FusedTrack fills in the gaps of waning GPS signals with motion sensor data, ensuring both a more accurate reading and a prolonged battery life, so you can feel comfortable heading out for hours at a time.

You've got a built-in heart rate monitor in the wrist to help you monitor your body's performance during speed workouts and high-altitude runs. Speaking of altitude, this watch has a FusedAlti altitude tracker that works similarly to FusedTrack, combining GPS and barometric altitude for a more accurate reading. Weather tracking gives you temperature readings and storm warnings, while speed tracking, plenty of log storage, and ove...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
