The perfect fusion between a classic timepiece, a powerful GPS wrist-top computer and a high-tech training aide, the Suunto Ambit GPS Black Watch does all that it says it will in the manual - and so much more. A huge amount of data is available at the press of a button, including altitude, temperature, speed – vertical and horizontal - weather conditions and of course the time.
The Suunto Ambit GPS is the latest innovative design in a long line of outdoors activity performance watches from Suunto. A durable construction and beefy feel inspire confidence in even the most extreme environments and the impressive functionality operates above and beyond anything else on the market. Designed with the specific needs of the outdoors enthusiast, the Suunto Ambit GPS is built to the highest of specifications, making it the ideal GPS watch for anyone from ultra-marathon runners and extreme sports enthusiasts to the occasional climber.
Made with the adventurer kept firmly in mind, the Suunto Ambit covers a spectrum of features desired for hardcore outdoor usage. The one-piece aluminium alloy case boasts a mineral glass plate designed to withstand mechanical shocks and scratching. The Suunto Ambit will not let you down, even with the roughest of treatment!
A high-sensitivity SiRFstarIV GPS chip gives accurate short and long interval readings whilst saving power with the ability to go into sleep mode, allowing for faster satellite connection than from a cold state. The Suunto Ambit has full 100-point waypoint functionality, an invaluable navigational aide and a unique 3-dimensional compass. Unlike a conventional compass, the Suunto Ambit does not need to be held level but will give a reliable bearing even during the most violent pitch and yaw. The Suunto Ambit is able to give coordinates in a number of different formats and, for military use, the compass can be switched between mils and degrees.
The barometric altimeter gives exact readings by taking information from pressure as well as GPS, and gives the Suunto Ambit the ability to measure vertical speed as well as horizontal. Furthermore, keeping an eye on the barometer and temperature readings can alert you to changing weather conditions.
The high-performance pedigree of the Suunto Ambit has a battery to cope, lasting up to 30 days in watch mode but able to give a 15-hour constant life on maximum burn (during short interval GPS tracking, in training mode). However, forget expensive battery replacements as the lithium-ion battery is fully rechargeable and lithium means it is also more reliable in low temperatures than a conventional battery.
An impressive training aide, the Suunto Ambit offers all the features you would expect from a Suunto watch plus a few features unique to the Ambit GPS, such as the patent-pending FusedSpeed technology. The Ambit is a powerful fusion between GPS wrist-top computer and durable time-piece, making for a high-performance and quality watch.
A built-in accelerometer connects with GPS signals in order to give a more accurate real-time recording of speed, distance and pace. Filling in the gaps when GPS technology may fail, for example in thick forest or tunnels, FusedSpeed reduces data error to give a more realistic and constant picture. An adaptive filtering process allows for a shifting bias between GPS readings and the accelerometer to give both accurate steady-speed data and quicker response to change in speed.
All the data collected whilst on the run can be uploaded to the www.movescount.com website where a detailed track of your progress will be recorded. On movescount.com, you can build your own training diary working towards a specific goal, or just monitor your fitness levels, with the option to share and discuss with the movescount.com community.
The Suunto ANT Heart Rate Belt can be bought separately and combined with the Suunto Ambit for greater functionality as a training watch - ‘Peak Training Effect’ measurement giving a detailed debrief of session impact and ‘Recovery Time’ keeping a record of base fitness levels.
With movescount.com you can update your Ambit with the latest software for free. On September 27th 2012, Suunto launched software version 1.8 for the Suunto Ambit bringing greater on-screen navigation. You can now download routes straight to your ambit and share your own online at movescount.com. Other improvements include a new local coordinate system, GPS time keeping, chrono function, constant backlight option as well as five new display languages.
The latest update available from the 28th November 2012 makes the Ambit ANT+ compatible - but it also gives Ambit users the ability to do something really exciting. The Suunto App Zone allows Ambit users to create their own apps using all of the information collected by the watch. Using this information in real time, the watch can display a huge variety of information on the screen. Ever wanted to compete against yourself on your weekend run?
