This is important because Suunto is shutting down the Movescout service THIS SUMMER. The ability to customize your sports, watch faces, and watch settings will disappear. They already pulled the Movescout app from the Android play store in preparation for this shutdown. They are not going to add this service to the new Suunto app.
The Ambit3 looks like a new, current generation watch, but Suunto considers it obsolete and the end of life is coming in just a few short months. Because all of the customization, apps, and features are managed by a cloud service, all of the functionality will be taken away.
After that I spent nearly a month doing heavy research in the matter -- not exaggerating, I was spending 2-3/day reading reviews, comparing prices, reading forums, etc. After all that madness, I narrowed the field to the Ambit3 and Fenix3, which are head-to-head competitors, almost feature per feature.
In the weeks leading to my purchase, however, it had become apparent that the Fenix3 had unresolved serious issues. Given there was literally zero response from Garmin and wasn't clear if the bug was firmware fixable or if it was a hardware flaw, I simply lost interest. I'm not one to drop a few Franklins in the hopes a developer will be able to fix a critical bug (which, as far as I know, they have not officially acknowledged).
At any rate, once I had decided on the Ambit3, the decision became about which version (Peak or regular) and color (black, blue, etc.). After deliberating about it for a day or so, I decided on the Peak version.
First impressions: the watch is huge! Definitely not subtle and quite substantial. I'm ~ 5'10'', 180lbs and it looks rather big on my wrist. At the same time you can tell it's built like a tank and could take an unreasonable amount of abuse with no issues :) That said, you can tell the designers at Suunto at least _tried_ to make that behemoth more presentable and easy to carry around. Gentle curves throughout, the watch itself arches to contour the round shape of a wrist and very comfortable and snug straps.
The initial setup was super easy. A guided wizard-like steps and menus make it trivial to have your watch ready to go in about a minute.
*** NOTE: BEFORE YOU TRY TO PAIR WITH YOUR PHONE, UPGRADE YOUR Ambit3's FIRMWARE VIA USB CABLE AND MOVESCOUT. IT WILL NOT PAIR CORRECTLY OTHERWISE ***
This watch has an amazing level of customization and a ton of features you can tweak pretty much to your heart's desire, but you can only do most of that via the mobile app. As of this writing, they have yet to release the Android version of the companion app, so, if you own an Android device, you might want to hold on for a few weeks before forking the money on this watch. The iOS app itself looks good, and, again, is the main means of taking full advantage of your watch's features. The movescout website is fantastic, IMO. I've seen workouts in Training Peaks, Strava, MapMyFitness, etc. none of them are as clean and well presented as Movescout is. I'm very happy with it.
The GPS tracking for running/cycling is really great and very accurate (tested in measured paths). I have not yet tried it in unmarked trails, so cannot comment on that capability. It supports any Bluetooth 4.0+ devices, my Sosche hear monitor, for instance paired immediately and w/o issues. Another nifty thing is the "smart-ish" watch capabilities. While paired with your phone, it will show notifications as they come in. This is such useful feature, at least for me. 95% of my runs and training are during the week and in or near the city, so it's great to be able to do that while at the same time see who's calling or texting or that email from work and you can make a decision whether it's important or urgent enough to stop and reply (SPOILER: it almost never is). Note that you can't reply back or control your music via the Ambit3 like a full-fledged smart watch can do. But just having the notification covers almost 100% of my use case, so +1 from me.
There are also a plethora of "apps" in movescout you can "download" to your watch and if you are technologically inclined, you can even create one of your own.
The temperature/thermometer is invariably ~ 10F higher than it should be. Haven't yet found a good way to calibrate that, but I'd say it's the only sore spot I have.
The compass works great and since it's not GPS based can be reliably used at all times. Calibrating it is quite easy.
The Altimeter/Baromoter is an interesting animal. It can be hard to calibrate if you aren't at sea level and with good weather to create a reference. You can use GPS assisted altitude, but that sorta defeats the purpose of having those sensors on board.
Overall, I'm quite happy with my decision and I highly recommend it. My only warning would be not to expect to use it as your "every day" watch since as previously stated it's quite substantial.
It does not give the 20 hours as advertised is the bottom line here. Otherwise a nice watch with 17 hours battery life so better than the SPORT version but still not good enough for a slow ultra runner.

Why should you buy this watch:
If you run ultras.
If you trail run long distances.
If you hike mountains.
If you want to explore new areas.
You want to hike new trails without getting lost
If your not bothered about a watch syncing to your phone.
You want a HR monitor that can monitor your heart in the water.
You want a watch with long battery life.
You want a watch that connects with GPS in seconds.
Why shouldn't you buy this watch:
If you want a heart rate monitor on the watch it's self (on the watch strap)
If you want a fitness tracker rather than a dedicate sports watch.
If syncing to your phone is important (this watch does sync to your phone but it's a really unreliable at doing so)
If your a road runner
If your someone thats aiming to run marathon distance (cheaper options out there)
This watch is a great all round sports watch especially paired with the HR monitor. It's rugged and is a watch that is clearly designed to serve the outdoor community. A watch that ozzes the scent of adventure.
I love this watch as it's suited to someone with my interests and hobbies.
I would give it 5 stars however it's 4 due to the phone syncing. This isn't a deal breaker for me as I use the lap top to plan my routs etc etc anyway. It syncs real quick when plugged in via USB. It would however be more convenient to sync to phone.
However I just could not get it to synch with my phone and Strava. Tried everything. Had to send it back and buy another Garmin
CONS: Can't display a preset trail map and track your stats at the same time (unless I'm doing it wrong). The black metal finish is a little prone to scratching. Some features are not so intuitive. It's slow to sync with phone.
Conclusion: I like this watch. It does almost everything I need it to do. It's priced well and delivers!
