    The One Watch to Rule Them All

    If you're into trail running, mountaineering, hiking or backpacking, you'll love everything about the Ambit3. It might take a few days to get the hang of the UI, but once you do it's smooth sailing. I mainly use my Ambit for trail/ultra running. One of the biggest reasons I chose the Ambit over a Garmin is the battery life, which blows Garmin out of the water. With the best (1 second) GPS accuracy I get around 50 hours. If I knock it down to 10 seconds It's more like 80+.

    There are so many amazing features in the Ambit....You can download GPX routes and put them on the watch, you can throw the lat/lon of anywhere in the world and the Ambit will direct you (Point of Interest, it gives you a live reading of altitude gain (my favorite feature), it has a storm alarm and baro reading, there's an awesome bluetooth connection where you can connect the watch to your phone to load your route on Movescount and Strave, and the list keeps going on.

    The downside to the Ambit is that you are very limited to changing features in the field. You have to actually be prepared before you head outside and plan in advance. It's not as much of a "smart watch" as the Garmin.

    Grand Teton Climb with my Ambit

    I went watch-less for about six years then picked up the
    Ambit this last summer. I'm seriously impressed. The features on this watch are endless. The Route and POI (point of interest) features are my favorite, and of course being able to track my vertical gain live during my ascents.

    Tough to live Without it

    I owned the Vector and Core for years. When I saw this come out I balked at the USB Charging feature and the need for GPS functionality in a watch. A buddy had one for a few years said it was great, I wanted to see what all the hype was about.

    The first thing I noticed about the watch is its ability to communicate with your phone. I teach skiing and need to have my phone on me in case parents call or text but, pulling it out in front of someone is rude and my hands get cold. The watch would now display the texts and incoming calls. You cannot respond but, at least you can easily see whats going on without pulling out your phone. When its connected like this the battery drained quick. I had to charge every night. The major competitor, Fenix 3 does this a bit different, email me if you have questions regarding the differences.

    The mapping function is the best part. It does not come with built in maps but, I don't really need them or have ever used them with an actual GPS. For most routes/trips you only need to upload a few way points at home to make sure you are on track. A screen map is so tough to read, if you need or want a map for your trip get a paper one. I'd been trying to get a climbing route here in SLC that is very tough to find the start. There are multiple ridges and they all look the same. Uploaded the way point and when I was at the right ridge the watch confirmed, success! The picture that is uploaded here is how Moves Count the app will spit out your map. On this particular route the clouds rolled in heavy and we had no idea if we actually skied the right route. The classic summit tree looked correct but, we still didnt know. Was nice to get home and confirm as well as get objective data on the climb.

    The battery was my biggest fear about this watch. If its going to be longer than a 12 hour day I generally turn off the GPS and use the watch like I used the Core. Altimeter readings and pacing based on vertical elevation gain. Under 12 hours I run the GPS so I can look at all the data when I get home, have not had an issue yet. If I ever go on an expedition, no doubt Solar panels will be there to charge other electronics, and it does not take long for a Flip 10 from Goal Zero to charge this on the road.

    I did not really need the Peak Ambit 3. I wanted it because I wanted to experience the best. I have not ever really used the training features. This might change, its nice to know they are there but, if you don't intend to use the training features get the Suunto Traverse. Please email me if you would like to discuss some of the differences with models. There are a lot out there and its a big investment, I can help with some of the homework!

    can't beat brandon Riza's review below

    • Weight: 120lbs

    I won't even try to write a detail review for this watch. I think Brandon Riza already covered all that. All in all.. awesome watch. I used it on my 50 miles race ( for 9 hrs 30 min ) and i still had about 20% battery power left. I kept the setting to track every second. LOVE IT.
    My HM belt failed after couple months but the customer service was the best! they sent me a new one right away.

    Major Upgrade

    I have to admit that I am a long time Suunto user. I first used the T6C many years ago and went through what sometimes can be a bit a challenge learning how to use Suunto watches. I used the T6C for several years, upgraded to the T6D, and when the Ambit first came out I moved to it. I loved the Ambit (first gen) but used it so much that it no longer held a charge very well. It should be noted that I wear the watch all the time, and use the advanced functions ( gps, compass, etc) for an average of 2 hours a day. A month ago I got the Ambit 3 Peak mostly because I needed the battery life back.

    I have been more than impressed with the updated Ambit. The menus and use stayed essentially the same, but the features and software are vastly improved over the 1st gen. The battery life was one of the first things to blow my mind. I went two full weeks before needing to recharge the first time, which included close to 30 hours of training. The ability to customs screens, use multiple apps, and multiple sports has made the watch an even more effective tool in my training than it's predecessor. I have found the notifications on the watch interesting, but honestly leave them off most of the time.

    The feature that I like the very most about the Ambit 3 is the integration with the Movescount iPhone app. I love the fact that I do not have to plug the watch into my laptop to sync moves or update settings. On the most recent update the ability to plan a workout on the phone and then immediately sync it to the watch and use it is AWESOME. The Movie you can produce after a workout through the phone is also really cool, I think my family and friends really enjoy seeing the adventures I take my watch on.

    I plan on coming back and updating this with more information after I have used the watch more and to discuss some of the long term durability, function, and battery life.

    how would I recharge this watch on a 19 day trek in Nepal

    There are many ways to recharge this watch since it uses a USB recharging cable. The best option would be a portable rechargeable battery pack . The Peak version also features a larger battery and many customization modes that can be optimized to extend the battery life.
