For dedicated athletes who find that their adventures take them far away from anything resembling a charger there's the Suunto 9 Watch. Perfect for ultra-runners, cyclists, and backpackers, this long-lasting GPS watch was designed to maximize battery life without sacrificing performance, giving you highly accurate readings and a battery that won't quit.
