    Suunto Ambit2 Sapphire GPS Multifunction Heart Rate Monitoris rated4.5out of5by4.
    Rated5out of5byfromMyriad features, learning curveI generally use this product to track hikes and cycling. I also work in Yellowstone seasonally and use this to track hikes and as a GPS to record POI if I don't feel like taking my Garmin out. The Suunto Ambit 2 is highly versatile with myriad features, but there is definitely a learning curve. There are still several things that I'm not quite sure how to do without some experimentation. For instance, it is possible to record your track and use the GPS to guide you to a POI, but it is difficult to figure this out at first. I still have to tinker around, but for everyday use (cycling, hiking, checking elevation in the mountains), this watch cannot be beat. I own the Graphite, which is the heaviest and bulkiest of the options. If my wrist were any smaller, I likely wouldn't wear this outside of active use (i.e. every day wear), but I find it to be a very attractive watch that gets a lot of comments. I have also had no issues with battery use. I generally record my daily bike rides to work and charge it once a week without issue.

    Rated4out of5byfromThe training partner to have + GPSI have been using similar watches all my life from brands from Polar. I have to say my Suunto Ambit2 sapphire HR won me over with its fast GPS acquisition & how it accurately records my training. It has every feature I need and would ever want for days I ride, hike, training indoors and even used it for Yoga. User customizable feature is the best selling point of the ambit. I cannot express it enough how crucial this is for weekend warriors, enthusiast and more importantly for serious athletes. Movescount is a Suunto online app and community where you manipulate your training specs, share, CREATE apps and give a shout out to the community. There over 1k of apps you can easily download to your ambit that you need for your specific training. Kudos to Suunto here! Watch build is top notch. It is bulky but it does not feel heavy or in your way. I actually use for everyday and don't mind the size at all and I'm of average build. The only concern I have regarding reliability is the HR elastic strap. It seems this wont last more than a year of 4-5 days/ week use. I have HR straps from Polar for over 2 years now and it still can go another couple more. Also a concern is the way you clasp the HR together. It' is a hard plastic that some reviewers in a different site have mentioned it becomes brittle and breaks easy. Overall happy to receive this as a gift. My wife is happy I train more now then ever before.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat smartwatchThis is my first fitness smartwatch. I have worn a Suunto Observer for several years, and this is my upgrade. The software interface is much more intuitive than the Observer. Pros: Looks great. Although it's large, it's a great casual watch, and may even survive with black tie. Syncs with (Suunto's fitness dashboard.) Metrics work well, GPS, heart rate, etc. They appear to be accurate. Software interface does not require a glance at the manual every 5 minutes. It looks to be indestructible, though I hope the band survives the test of time. Cons: Expensive. Proprietary USB connector (really, no micro USB?). Third-party data sync is available, but not all that powerful. I will write a follow-up review after I have had the device for a few months.

    Rated5out of5byfromLove this fitness watchI use this watch to monitor my heart rate and distance while running and for monitoring my heart rate during weight training. It's incredibly accurate when set to the 1-sec recording. It's a lot of watch, way more than an average runner needs, but it's about as fun a watch as you could ever want. I stopped wearing a watch when I got a smart phone years ago. This watch brought me back. My reasons for getting this is 50% fitness and 50% toy. It hasn't disappointed in either category. I ruled out the Garmin 910 due to weaker stated battery life. I can go on several runs with the Ambit 2 and never drop below 85% battery life left. It's a larger watch but I find that the size isn't a factor. I have a smaller (but still large) Casio G-Shock that I can only wear for a few hours before it starts to irritate my wrist. I wear the Ambit 2 all day without noticing it.
