5.0 out of 5 stars A step up from a run of the mill GPS 27 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I have several GPS devices which I use for both hill walking and running. I was in the market for a replacement for my Garmin 405 which for many reasons has never quite lived up to its billing (build quality, battery life, software issues etc.).

I read several reviews comparing the Suunto Ambit 2 and its main competitor, the Garmin Fenix. I also compared the build and feel quality of both in person prior to opting for the Suunto Ambit 2. In my mind, the quality of the Suunto is vastly superior to that of the Garmin and the option of selecting Hiking mode means that I will never again be on the hills and find myself out of battery power after only 4-5 hours.

I have had a month of use so far and I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. It's at the top end cost wise of such devices, but it does everything that I wish in one quality device. It is also extremely easy to customise via the Movescount software that is intuitive to use.

If you are in the market for a GPS watch that covers running, cycling, walking, hiking, swimming etc. then I can thoroughly recommend it to you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well featured all round sports watch. 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
Well featured sports watch - highly customisable to suit personal requirements.
Lost one star as the the metal bezel seems a bit too vuluniable to scuffing. Otherwise a good watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great battery life, built quality. Lack on-the-watch configurability 31 July 2013
By Wong Shoon Hooi - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Have read a lot of good reviews on the Ambit2 so when I saw a good deal on Amazon, decided to buy one to test out. I have a Garmin Fenix as well and my personal experience comparing the Ambit2 with the Fenix are as follows:

Pros:
a) Better built quality compared to the Fenix
b) Faster GPS Lock
c) Multi-Sport mode (good for triathlon)
d) Altimeter/Barometer graph readily available as part of watch interface without 'activating' any of the 'Exercise/Sport' mode function (Fenix can show the graphs too if the sensors are set to always on - but battery life suffers)
e) Battery seems to last longer (drop in battery %) when in watch mode (ambit2 will actually blanks off the screen to save battery life if there is no movement)
f) App-based flexibility to extend functionality
g) Faster in reviewing exercise logs (though only in summary - i.e. doesn't give lap by lap details)
h) Peak training effect and Recovery time indicator
i) Better water resistant rating
j) Movescount provides more details and allow layering of graphs for easier analysis

Cons:
a) Limited on-the-watch configuration. Changes have to be made online via MovesCount. My biggest Gripe compared against Fenix - which can be operated 'untethered' to the computer!
b) The strap is not as comfortable as the Fenix - esp for me since I have a small wrist.
c) Lack Bluetooth - which I used frequently to transfer the exercise details to my iPhone for viewing
d) Lack on the watch lap details review (see g above)
e) Lack some GPS tools functionality compared against the Fenix
- Sunrise/Sunset easily viewable via icons configured on the Fenix watch mode
- Lack trace back feature (Fenix breadcrumbs track is useful for finding your way back against Ambit2 directional 'straight line' guidance.)
- Does not auto-correct the time based on GPS (limited time correction)
f) Lack vibration alert
h) Fenix allows downloading of GPS basemap which can be used to provide street by street guide for

Summary: Fenix is a better day-to-day as well as hiking watch while Ambit2 is a better 'sport' watch if one doesn't mind the 'leash' around MovesCount.

Update - Wish list of SW upgradeable features:
- Breadcrumbs for track back
- Configurability to allow simultaneous use of GPS and Footpod (cadence)
- Lap details review on the watch
- Configurability of functions/apps (e.g. Storm Alarm, Sunrise/Sunset) to be displayed under Watch mode instead of Exercise mode

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Hardware but poor website support 11 Jun 2013
By iknownothing - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It's a flagship watch for sports, a little big and heavy(hurts my wrist after 10 km), but all function works perfectly, swim and running and all fancy compass and foot pod.
However, the website is beautiful but not so much, I can not import previous record, can not create a route from my exercise, can not see detailed chart like garmin or sports-tracker.com.
So, if you want something special it's for you, it's looks much better than garmin 910xt, and much longer battery, but if you want to keep record and analyse them garmin way much better.

2.0 out of 5 stars ultimately disappointed 10 Aug 2013
By samuel - Published on Amazon.com
after spending 3 mos and over 60 moves i have to conclude that tho the device is great, the MOVESCOUNT website and software are deal breakers. the device itself is easy to use, intuitive, looks good and is comfortable. the HR strap is too big tho - definitely needs a smaller pod across the chest - i'm surprised Suunto hasnt addressed this issue. if garmin can make a small and comfortable strap then you'd think Suunto could too. but back to MOVESCOUNT, its really terrible: its difficult if not impossible to do side by side comparisons of moves; drops data transfers; makes it difficult to share/email; and doesnt allow use of other gpx files etc. i have had two garmin devices for bikes and can assure any potential buyers that garmin's software/website are vastly superior to Suunto. do not buy this watch until Suunto can deliver on website and software.
5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish Sport Watch 6 Nov 2013
By CraigE - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've owned several Suuntos over the years and this one is definitely the finest one yet. I use it as a cycling GPS computer to record my rides. And it gets lots of attention with its great style.

3.0 out of 5 stars Costly for the features and closed to third party app like Strava and Runkeeper 13 Jun 2013
By mayank - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I like the design and the interface. Not sure if I am happy paying $$ more than the Garmin 910xt.
I use it primarily as a tri training log.

Cons (Based on my reading the 910XT has it)
No vibration alerts. One can miss the beep in a race or a training run/swim
No virtual pacing to benchmark against your PR for example
Haven't been able to figure how to include nutrition alerts in an exercise (e.g. in the triathlon mode)
The triathlon mode does not' account for transition time. The multisport one can't be configured for transition time too.
No trackback feature to follow the route back to where you started
No integration with iPhone (i.e. bluetooth, ANT+). By extension (I think) no integration with Strava, Runkeeper or the likes.
The temperature readings are off at least by 10 degrees. I have searched the internet and the manual to find a way to calibrate it but without luck. I have been able to calibrate the alti/baro/compass

Movescount is an integral part of this watch
I do like the data visualization but the website UI is pretty confusing (Try figuring out how to use the Storm Alert app).
The Movescount site doesn't push 'maps' and 'stats' to Facebook but just pastes a link.
Can an app act as a pedometer? Shouldn't it be one of the standard ones offered? I want to use the watch more than just during an fitness session.

Has the potential but not yet the best Tri watch out there.
