Creating the performance tools with Big Data
Am I progressing? How good am I? How can I train better?
“Trying to answer the most important questions for endurance athletes by using big data is an ambitious goal. Normally experts, research and algorithms are used to answer these questions, but we have come up with the first solutions in the world where big data is used to provide answers and facts for the athletes. The answers we have found have surprised even us. The solution itself is getting better day by day as millions of training sessions flow into the system continuously.”
— Janne Kallio Digital Lead, Performance Business
The solution is based on analysis of over 150 million training sessions by Suunto consumers who have been tracking their training during 2010-2016 with Suunto watches. The analysis has been done for the most common endurance sports including running, cycling, swimming, triathlon, trail running and mountain biking. This has given over billion metrics, which are now being utilized within Suunto Movescount to provide answers to the key questions.
