|The Suunto Ambit!|
When I was assigned the task of typing an article on the new Suunto Ambit review, I jumped at the prospect.
I have owned a few Suunto gadgets over the seasons. I'm currently dressed the Suunto Core All Black. I've had great joy with my watches over the years, having only one problem which Suunto promptly addressed. As a whole they've fared quite well. But hey, enough about myself. Let's get into it.
The Ambit allows the user to create special roads to travel based on waypoints inputted into Movescount.com. Points of Interest can be created, added and loaded to the watch that enable the user to traverse any terrain simply by following the Ambit's on-screen guidance.
One of the best features of the watch is the Find Back feature. If you're misplaced or just want to go straight back to camp, simply select the Find Back features, and the Ambit will steer you back to your point of origin.
Along with having multiple GPS fixes and added capabilities, Suunto extracted outdoor functions from the Core Series such as the barometric altimeter, barometer and temperature gauge. A new unique 3D compass was added this time around similar to the Core's with slight differences and cleanliness that makes the compass much easier to see and navigate.
With the vast array of features packed into the Ambit, it is actually a hybrid behemoth that leaves little to be desired. That's my suunto ambit review, people!
