SUUNTO Ambit is definitely not just a watch. This versatile outdoor GPS equipped device is packed with various features that can make every moment spent in various outdoor conditions more interesting, safe, understandable and even stylish. Sounds perfect? Let’s see why.
Its small package will provide loads of information that will be displayed on its small, but amazingly readable and clear screen.
The SUUNTO Ambit has three different modes based on the grouped features – Outdoor, Training and Mountain and Everyday.
Outdoor mode features GPS with route navigation that includes creation and sharing or your routes via Movescount. A very important feature for the adventurers has to be the option of creating POIs (Points of Interest) and their storing within the watch. If you wish to use just the compass, there is a 3D one here. This mode also provides information about barometric altitude, atmospheric pressure and temperature.
Training mode gives detailed information about your heart rate, it has interval timer, chrono and accelerometer, it shows vertical speed with barometric altitude and it also includes an amazingly useful and fun feature for keeping an online diary that provides the option of advanced planning and various analysis tools.
The previous two modes also provide admirable battery life of 15h in Training mode and 50h in Outdoor mode. This may not sound like a lot, but when was the last time you worked out for 15 hours?
General features of the watch that can come useful in everyday use, but also in some extreme conditions enable you to configure watch screens to your liking and even go underwater where the SUUNTO Ambit is water resistant to the depths of 100m. You can also opt for the constant backlight. The sturdiness is ensured by using glass fiber reinforced polyamide casing. While out on an adventure, you might want to use the Button Lock feature.
Additionally, Ambit’s software is upgradeable and it can be enhanced installing some of more than 1,000 free SUUNTO apps. This feature packed device can be difficult to use due to its versatility and this is why the creators offer 9 languages to choose from.
Having in mind that this is a watch after all, you will be able to see the time – even dual time – date and set your alarm.
Of course that this kind of device has a rechargeable battery and computer connectivity.
We really find it hard to find any flaws with this. If you do happen to find one, remember that this is a watch, after all and we haven’t seen many that are this versatile and useful.
