New watch, GPS, heart rate monitor ... All in one with just 78 g in weight.
The only difference between HR Ambit Ambit and the heart rate monitor is the banda. The Ambit (plain) does not include the band, but DO have the benefits of heart rate monitor. Does not include the belt for users having another Suunto watch with Comfort Belt or Comfort Dual Belt, because they are compatible and you save money.
Finally comes the Suunto Ambit, a "clock" that has it all benefits: watch, GPS benefitefit, a heart rate monitor for training and the performance of a mountain watch with altimeter, barometer and compass.
The new Suunto Ambit is the first watch that combines all the functions and is essential for those who need or want an all in one: Explorers, hikers, skiers, runners, mountain biking fans ... A unique watch for all users.
With the new Ambit forget some of the concept of watch and think as if it were a mobile phone, it does not work with battery, but battery requires charging and occasionally ... change of mentality. Still has an amazing range of 30 days if used only as a watch.
Using as a GPS wiyh high frecuence measurements gives us a range of 50 uninterrupted hours and 15 hours if used in training mode with high frequency measurements. Course are extreme times we can give a multitude of intermediate values, depending on frequency of use of the functions of higher consumption: GPS and training.
Despite the reluctance that the issue of the battery can cause ... is a great tool!
New Suunto Ambit is the first true GPS watch for Explorers.
Suunto AMBIT is what every backcountry skier, hiker, trail runner and mountain climber has been eagerly waiting for — a watch that combines a GPS navigation system, altimeter, 3D compass with advanced heart rate monitoring into a robust instrument for mountain and everyday use.
"I can't wait to get my hands on the AMBIT," comments Ueli Steck, the record-breaking Swiss climber.
"The product concept is amazing and for me, it's the perfect tool to train in the mountains and record my speed ascents. It has everything a mountain athlete could want — heart rate function for training, barometer for weather forecasting, altimeter for navigation and logging vertical gain and best of all, a GPS for location and an accurate trace. It's great for everything I do, whether training with speed, distance and heart rate or for proving my climbing records."

Reviews of AMBIT (1)
- Peyo say: Genial
Rating: Poder controlar en cada momento el ritmo de carrera es una pasada! La descarga de sesiones del Ambit al ordenador Movescount es muy fácil. Permite personalizar muchísimos parámetros. Es algo más pesado y voluminoso que otros relojes Suunto, pero en un par de días apenas notas la diferencia. A pesar de su elevado precio merece mucho la pena.
