Suunto Ambit Video Walkthrough and Review

by July 6, 2012 07/6/12

Our good friend Buck Holly put together a great video walkthrough and review of the new Suunto Ambit he picked up from Uber Group. The feature laden Ambit displays altitude, location, speed, heart rate, weather conditions and the “world’s first full-featured GPS for Explorers.”

Additional features include GPS waypoint navigation, highly responsive pace and speed (FusedSpeed) with accelerometer integrated GPS,  Accurate vertical speed with barometric altimeter, online sports diary from movescount.com, enhanced battery life (outdoor mode 50 hours, training mode 15 hours, watch mode 30 days), 100m water resistance and robust BuiltToLast casing.

The Suunto Ambit can be purchased on Amazon.com.

Couldn't agree more. Or at the very least a LONGER battery life and easy to change. This is why my foretrex 401 and a ton of AAA batteries follow me o the field each time.

Great review Buck and welcome to ITS. I love the look of Suunto watches, have almost pulled the trigger a couple of times, but get hung up on the rechargeable battery issue. Why does Suunto (and Garmin for that matter) continue to ignore the need for a fully featured, kick-ass watch that is solar powered? I mean Casio G-Shocks have been doing that reliably now for two decades or more. Great watch, everything I want including the reverse display, but can't get past the battery thing - that's just me. Suunto, pay attention!

Great review Buck! I have 2 Suunto watches, a Vector and an all black Core. I tend to wear the Vector more because, if I'm doing something and don't want to wear my wedding band, it slips nicely onto the wrist strap of the Vector. But the wrist strap of the Core is too wide.

Neither of those watches have GPS and neither interface with a heart rate monitor - the Vector HR came out a couple weeks AFTER I bought my Vector - but I still Love Suunto watches.
