I'm happy to report that the HRM chest strap closure seems much more durable than the one on the old design - no more flimsy plastic bits to snap off! Additionally, the strap itself is a bit narrower, and it can now record data in the water which will sync with the watch or app once you get out.
In terms of the watch itself, the features are pretty similar to the previous model, at least in terms of how you access them (not much of a learning curve). As before, you can customize several different display screens for each activity mode, which can then be scrolled either automatically or manually during your workout. Suunto also has a very healthy app ecosystem at its (regrettably a bit clunky) Movescount site - basically, users have written code to make the watch do all sorts of interesting things, that can be downloaded onto the watch.
For my money, the single best improvement over the Ambit 2 is that Bluetooth is now built into the watch, so that it can sync with your devices without being plugged in. It's very nice not to have to schlep the charging cable back and forth, or wait until the next time you're at your computer, to see complete workout data. Also, and this may be more of a subjective impression, but it seems like this model captures the GPS signal a bit faster than the old one; I know that when you do plug it into the computer (which you need to do for charging), data download from the watch and syncing with settings and updated satellite information is *much* faster than it used to be, and so far seems to occur with fewer hiccups. The watch might even charge faster, but I haven't actually timed it. Battery life per charge seems to be pretty good; I could probably get five or six days between charges if I didn't start to get nervous when it gets below about 45%.
Overall, I've been very satisfied with the Ambit running product line, and this version is another great entry. (Though, just as a caveat - this is the only brand of running watch I've ever used, so I can't really make a comparison.) One possible thing to keep in mind is that the Suunto-provided app/web app, Movescount, is not terribly user-friendly; I've got it linked to my Strava account, and I spend probably about 90% of the time I devote to examining workout data on Strava rather than Movescount.
Arrived exactly as expected, new, in original packaging, and on time.
Had this watch for 10 days and noticed a cheaper price on-line. Notified the vendor and they gave me a rebate of the difference right away (no hassles at all). UBXbikes
