    The One Watch to Rule Them All

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Email me directly for all your Suunto Questions -

    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.

    Great for Multisport

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I have had this watch now for 2 months. Its been on 4 triathlons and I wear it everyday as well. Its simple to operate yet the features that you get are jammed packed in the watch.

    It has taken me a while to get used to what buttons to push when trying to change sports in a tri, but with practice I have found how to enter T1 mode, bike, etc etc... because how you change or end a single sport is different than how you change sports in a tri.

    Regardless of my initial fumblings, the watch is great. I wear it to work everyday and it holds up to that. The charge lasts atleast a week and that is using it for GPS mode 4-5 times a week as well.

    The only problem I can say that I have is that the Movescount App is still in Beta with the Android phones and I think there are some kinks still being worked out. That being said, in the 2 months I have had the watch, the updates for the app have come out 3-4 times already... so I know that they are a working on some of the bug fixes.

    Integration to Strava for you that use it is flawless. Only issue I know of is pool swims and other items without a GPS file dont upload directly. You need to download a .fit file from Movescount App on your computer to upload to Strava. The GPS features for cycling, running, and open water swim are tough to beat. The GPS syncs up really quick and works awesome.

    Thanks for a great watch Suunto!!

    Hands Down The Best and Most Accurate

    I have had my share of GPS and HR watches-Garmin, Polar, and Timex. The Suunto Ambit 3 Sapphire is by far more accurate with GPS, HR and Altitude (has a built in Barameter). It is easier to use, extremely durable (scratch, shatter proof sapphire dial), better buttons, 20X more options which is easier to configure, smaller, and more comfortable.

    It integrates with your phone very easily and updates information VIA blue tooth. I really like this watch for Mountaineering because in the app on my phone it gives me a 3D viewing of what route actually climbed. Another reason why I love this watch is because it is impervious to extreme weather (-30F) and the battery lasts much longer than any other watches.

    Lastly, this watch comes with a free fitness tracking account at Movescount records so much data on your work out and body that it is almost overwhelming; however, if you know how to use that data fro training purposes then you are in for a real treat.

    If you are a serious athlete that wants to have a device that records accurate information and is very reliable then I suggest you fork up the money.

    Any questions? Just ask me! Stunt also have excellent customer support and service.

    Hands Down The Best and Most Accurate

    Responded on June 16, 2015

    I am intrigued by your review of Suunto's Ambit3 Peak GPS Sapphire, but in fairness the reviews on Amazon are far harsher when it comes to Suunto's customer service or lack thereof. So, which is it? Is Suunto's U.S. customer service great or does it suck as indicated by reviews of the same unit?

    I respect that. Here is some facts to support my argument. I had difficulties connecting my HR, they stayed on the phone until it as resolved. It ended up being a user error not a defect. A few months later the HR Strap started wearing out, they sent me a brand new one free of charge. Every time I call for help on how to set something up, there has never been more than a 2-3 minute wait. They are available 24/7. There are more features on this watch than you can imagine and trust me when I say this, it is definitely worth it. You just need to be patient with it and you will see a huge quality and accuracy difference. If customer support does not have an immediate answer or solution to your problem they will email you back within 24 hours. They have great follow up work. The only down side is that they are all from a foreign country and have strong accents, which is sometimes hard to understand. Give them a call just to merely ask questions and have more information about their products....

    Hi! I am thinking of buying this for my daughter who is a collegiate rower. Is this compatible for rowers or is it really just for runners, hikers and triathletes?

    It should be a fine watch for rowing. It's an outdoor watch, regardless of the sport. The main functions your daughter will most likely be interested are: heart rate monitor, duration, average HR and GPS track. From those data points, she'll be able to analyze her training and make choices to alter her training. There are several watches that will do those functions, but this is one of the best. As a bonus, if the barometric pressure starts dropping ahead of a low pressure front, it will give her a warning of the impending storm so that she and her boat mates can head to the boathouse and get off the water. Plus, it's waterproof.

    How does the Ambit 3 compare to the Ambit 2? What additional features/functions have been added? Or, has there mainly been improvements to the aesthetic design?
