Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ambit 3 Peak I had very high expectations for the watch based on various reviews and purchased it as i was hiking the tour de mont blanc over the summer of 2015 While the watch kind of worked it also dropped the GPS single many times and was not able to recover which resulted in the record of many important hikes being worthless All attempts to work with Suunto to resolve the problems did not work as they can take up to 30 days to respond to and email and after supplying them with the requested information they failed to follow through with a resolution to the problems as such the watch was returned You will not here a lot of bad things about Suunto as they carefully control social media and do not allow and open product forum

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What could be a great watch ruined by Suunto I really like this watch when originally purchased at time of release this watch was great it had all the features and promises of future expandability. Yet as time has gone on I keep looking to the watch for updates software support new features and nothing suunto has done nothing since day one it took forever to get android support and it barely works. I thought i was paying for a refined product but instead I was overpaying for essentially a beta model. This has been my 4th GPS watch (forerunner) all previous watches had been garmin. I will be shifting back to garmin fenix or forerunner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO Not Buy - Horrible Support, Unreliable product Do not buy. Way to expensive for the lack of customer support, questionable durability, unstable software, and lack of android support. The overall functionality of the watch is good when the HRM is functioning. I like the display and the features available. I would be very happy with the watch if it was just a bit more reliable. For this price range, I expect it to work for more than a year without having to replace the HRM chest strap 2 times. I have had this watch for 13 months now and my second HR strap just died. Customer support was very slow in responding, and when they did they refused to replace the HR strap. The other disappointing feature is the lack of Android support. It was very delayed in coming out, and when it did, it is sub par and buggy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Software is not working, so product is useless. I have had it with the website and ap. The information from my watch does not transfer to either, and I've updated my information on the website numerous times, but it doesn't transfer back to my watch. I can't seem to get any useful help from the company, and the instruction manual is useless. A customer support representative, from the company admitted to me that the program is not working correctly. So basically I have a very expensive watch, that does nothing but tell time. I could have spent $10, and had an equal product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ambit 3 peak REI customer is awesome. They will always entertain when ypu have any questions. I have both Suunto Ambit 3 and Fenix 3 but i have returned my Fenix because other features are not necessay for running or biking. The ambit 3 is more frienly use and easy to navigate. GPS is more accurate And it doesnt reboot when ypu change menu as compare to Fenix 3. Ambit 3 display has a clearer display. If your intention is just to monitor you HR, calories burn, distance, GPS accuracy, hiking, get ambit peak 3. You will never regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Multisport Watch After trying the competition (Garmin Fenix 3 and Polar V800) I've finally found the perfect multisport watch for me, and it's the Suunto Ambit3. The best part about the Ambit3 is that it just works. No software bugs, no missing functionality (cough, V800), no horrible GPS tracking errors (cough, Fenix 3). The specification and functionality are detailed here and on other sites (e.g. dcrainmaker), but here's a quick summary of the main differences between the three high end contenders: - Ambit 3, like the V800, uses Bluetooth instead of ANT+ (Fenix 3) to communicate with sensors such as heart rate monitors, foot pods, power meters, etc. - No vibration alerts on the Ambit3, unlike the V800 and Fenix 3. - Black and white display, like the V800 but unlike the color display of the Fenix 3; however, the Fenix 3 display is very dim and hard to read except in bright light. - Ambit 3 (at least with current firmware) doesn't try to be a full activity tracker that measures walking distance and counts steps. It simply uses your activity level to adjust the recovery time. I prefer this approach to that taken by the Fenix 3 or V800. I don't care how many steps I've taken, but, since many of my days include quite a bit of walking (5 miles), the Ambit's approach makes the recovery calculations more accurate. (Wrist-worn step counters are also notoriously inaccurate anyway.) - Ambit 3 has some nice running performance features that aren't (currently) available on the Fenix 3 or V800. In particular, it can give you a reading of your performance (combining VO2Max estimation and running efficiency) during the run. I've found this data to be a really good estimate of fatigue, and it's an objective way to adjust training runs appropriately during the workout. - The Ambit 3, like the V800 but not the Fenix 3, can record heart rate during swimming workouts. I'm not sure how valuable this data is, but I suppose it allows a more accurate calorie estimate if nothing else. - Speaking of swimming, the Ambit 3, unlike the Fenix 3 and the V800, lets you train it to recognize your own swim strokes. As someone who doesn't have the most perfect form, I love this feature. All of the competition consistently mis-identifies my swim stroke. With the Ambit 3, however, it was a piece of cake to teach it my own personal idiosyncrasies, and it's been perfect every since. These are the differences that stand out to me. It's not the features or functions that have me sold on the Ambit 3, however. Simply stated, the Ambit 3 just works. It does everything Suunto claims, and (so far) does it flawlessly. No more frustrations with half-baked features or bug-ridden firmware. In the end, that's what matters most to me: I don't want to worry about my watch. Unlike the competition, the Ambit 3 delivers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Support is Awful Bought it largely for oversize face; older guy with visual impairment. Reasonably satisfied until lost a screw. Very difficult to replace; no service centers anywhere near me (in a major US metropolitan area, no less). Also, no software updates to speak of. Would not recommend to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suunto Ambit3 Peak w/HR I've been using this watch for about a year now for hiking, backpacking, cycling, kayaking, running, swimming and indoor workouts. I have yet to have a problem with it. It connects to my Galaxy S5 flawlessly, uploads my activity quickly and links to my Strava account seamlessly. The heart rate strap works well and the GPS is spot on. I wear it daily and as a professional firefighter I am not easy on equipment but it holds up well. I have even worn it into a fire with my HR strap with no issues. I was working out at the firehouse when the run came out so I left it recording as an indoor workout. It is still recorded as my best workout yet and recorded a max HR at 226! lol I can't speak on Suunto customer service because I've never had to use it.

According to the the spec sheet, this unit has a 50hr battery life when GPS is activated. However the battery is not user replaceable.  Therefore where is the owner going for battery change-out?  

Asked by: Shadow76
You can send your Ambit3 back to Suunto to have the battery replaced. Suunto covers the battery on their watches for one year or for at maximum 300 charging times,whichever comes first.

what is the difference between this and the sapphire one?

Asked by: Mes2345
The only difference between the Ambit3 Peak and the Ambit Peak 3 Sapphire model is the sapphire watch face. The sapphire crystal watch face is a more durable material and three times harder than the mineral crystal used on the regular Ambit3 Peak.
