Suunto Ambit: First Impressions

With regard to the updates I did promise about tech stuff, this one also serves as part of training update ;-) After some time of looking for an "all-in-one" training solution, data-wise, I decided on the Suunto Ambit to be my training companion from now on. Here are some first impressions of the watch, with calling it watch definitely being an understatement!

Suunto Ambit Silver, HR
Screen in Watch Mode, Date - Time - Day
Button view, GPS unit at the bottom
Main decision points: (1) swim proof, (2) batterie life of up to 50h data recording in training mode, 30days in watch - altimeter - barometer mode and (3) positive reviews on GPS accuracy and functions.

I already did some test runs with GPS tracking during commuting to work and a shopping trip today, as well as a first indoor ergometer session testing the HR functions. Still, I do have to analyze the results yet, which calls for a further update soon.

Greetings, Steve
