Great Altimeter/HR Monitor/GPS for Mountain Biking

I just got the Suunto Ambit HR Altimeter and so far, it has been amazing. Suunto managed to pack a ton of punch into this relatively compact Altimeter/Heart Rate Monitor/Compass/GPS watch - it is comfortable to wear as an everyday piece and looks great. The Ambit truly shines when all of it's tech functionality is put to use - I just used mine for a mountain bike ride yesterday and was very impressed. It is super easy to setup out of the box and even easier to activate one of its many training/exercise modes. With two clicks, I was in "Mountain Bike" mode, calibrated to the nearest GPS satellite, and wit my 3rd click, I had started recording my ride. During the ride, I was able to see everything I wanted - average speed, current speed, distance traveled, rate of ascent/descent, current altitude, heart rate (max/min/avg), temperature, and of course time. When I was done with my ride, I clicked the stop button, and the ride was saved on the watch. Once I got home, I was able to use the USB cable to upload my ride's stats into my movescount profile and recharge the watch at the same time. I would highly recommend the Suunto Ambit.
