Top Customer Reviews
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 rely on being able to do more sophisticated analysis on my training and performance on daily basis - so a service with 95ish% uptime (that's over a full week of downtime) for the year is a deal breaker. Besides the poor site stability - the site is fairly useless - I just use it as a conduit to get my data into better training programs.
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:
- high quality product with decent look and design;
- intuitive menu;
- fast GPS response;
- lots of useful apps which can be used as a workout/preparation for marathon, triathlon, etc.
- not sure if it's related to the shape of my arm but the plastic that sticks out from main body (i believe it has GPS receiver in it), makes the watch tilted sometimes so i have to strap them really tight;
- you cannot disallow auto-charge system;
- vibration alerts and SMS features are missing but should appear in Ambit 3;
- you have to be connected to Internet to use Movescount;
- unclear procedure how to calibrate foot pod (had to contact Tech support which replied in 3 days)
A lot of features
Long battery life
GPS locates you pretty quickly
The digital compass was extremely accurate when compared with an analog compass.
Creating routes for the watch is useful; and I don’t see myself getting lost.
Can choose what fields (like current heart rate, speed, altitude, etc.) you want to see for each exercise
The watch and its strap do not ergonomically fit my small wrist. So when I use it for a long time (like over an hour) I would get some very minor bruises on my wrist.
On some very rare occasions, the altimeter/barometer either didn't work or went haywire.
You can upload your data to the movescount website. But what if you want to backup or export all of your “moves” (aka your workouts) to say, xls, with one click? No can do. You’ll need to export each move one by one which is a hassle.
There are rare occasions where the moveslink program is buggy.
You can’t wirelessly upload your watch data to the computer.
I am not satisfied with Suunto's customer service. I ordered another heart rate belt from the Suunto website, and a couple of weeks later I never received it. I sent an email to them for a reminder. But I still haven't received the heart rate belt.
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.
