Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The short version: This is a fantastic and versatile watch, but after just over a year of ownership - I'd strongly recommend buying a competing product because Suunto just can't get their act together with MovesCount.
The long version: This watch is very versatile and very well built. I have used it DAILY for just over a year now. My main activity is running - I'm a competitive runner who regularly places at smaller races. I also use it occasionally when skiing, camping, and hiking in the mountains. It is an excellent piece of hardware and performs well in all situations I've put it through. Its pace, distance, and heart rate functionality is right on, and the altimeter and compass work as expected. No real issues there - totally a 5 star rating.
The software experience, on the other hand, is miserable. Because it's literally the only way to get data out of the watch (or change settings on the watch!), brings my rating down to a "meh" 2 stars. I...
I spend quite a bit of time going thru reviews, trials and videos related to sport watches. My initial goal was to purchase a watch which I could use for indoor and outdoor running and pool swimming. I was doubtful where I should buy Garmin Forerunner 910XT, Suunto Ambit 2 or Polar V800. While Polar watch was quite new and according to reviews still required some firmware improvements (and price was quite high ~500$), i was still comparing Forerunner and Suunto. I liked Suunto design and the fact that it picks GPS signal very fast but i was doubtful about Movescount application features. After 2 weeks Suunto dropped Ambit 2 price down to 299$ (perhaps due to upcoming release of Ambit 3) and I purchased it directly on Amazon. When item arrived, i was quite happy about manufacturing quality, its solid look. intuitive menu and fast GPS signal pick-up. So far I have run about 65 km (6 hours) with Suunto and here are pros/cons:
Amazing GPS watch. Did a lot of research and ended on this. Silver Ambit 2 price was $350.00. $200.00 off the list price. Ambit 2 has twice the battery life as the Ambit 2 S. That is the only reason I went with 2 over the cool colors of the 2 S. I wear it more as a daily watch than I had expected. I think knowing what I do now I would spring for the sapphire. I have a sapphire bezel on my Rolex love how it looks.
Love the interface with my Mac.
FYI: On the website it does not show the screen on the silver ambit 2 can be made black inverted. I was hoping it would and it does.
