I've been using the Ambit for almost a month now and really like it. I'm still learning some of the features and tweaks, so I think it will only get better - especially since Suunto seems to be offering software updates as they improve it.
My only previous GPS devices were an old Garmin and my iPhone, so I'm not an industry expert. However, I am extremely impressed with how quickly this watch acquires a GPS signal and holds it - even indoors and in thick woods. I've used it for running, trail running, hiking and road biking so far, along with the HR monitor. I like the way that the data is displayed on movescount. I can think of a couple of little nits, but overall love it.
Also, the watch looks good, and I wear it many days to work as my regular wristwatch. The black with the negative display looks pretty cool.
I'm especially anxious to try it skiing this season -- I need to figure out if there is a way to have it only run during descents (i.e., auto pause on the lift)
UPDATE: I just got back from a 5-day ski trip and used the Ambit to track my vertical feet and map my routes. Very easy to use and plenty of battery life. The GPS seems extremely accurate, and the watch held a lock on the GPS signal under my ski jacket and gauntlet-style gloves. I easily customized the display screens for skiing to suit my needs.
