Rated 2 out of 5 by from Starting phone / Connnecting to app is difficult I'm reserving judgment, but my inclination so far is to return the watch. It was incredibly difficult to start using, and doesn't include any instructions on use. To make things worse, the support website is incredibly difficult to navigate and not particularly useful. One of the main reasons I bought this was because I thought the Movescount app and its movie-making feature of your route was really cool. But key functions like Sharing are broke, and there's a lot of angst on their FB page. Finally, a big discrepancy between Mapmyride app and the watch in terms of tracking data. I've felt pretty good about Mapmyride, so if the data isn't even good, really wondering why I'm holding onto this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looking well functioning sport watch I bought the watch to use for triathlon training but I tend to use it primarily for running and cycling. On occasion I use it for indoor training (functional fitness or climbing) with the heart rate monitor and it serves as a great log for heart rate training. In all instances the gps is the best I've seen. Friends with Nike plus tom tom watches and garmin watches tend to have to wait longer than I do for their watches to connect to a satellite. I look forward to using it to track swimming laps soon and with the app. The app has recently become available for android phones but is super beta and buggy. It'll be a 5 star product when I can use the app and connect it to work as a smartwatch. Overall great function (compared to others I and friends have owned) and great look.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A beta product...needs a lot of work I wouldn't recommend the Ambit in its current iteration. For one thing, it's really a triathlon or trekking watch, not so much a multisport watch, which I expected. All the other sports it keeps track of in the software are afterthoughts (weights, elliptical, yoga, etc). And for those main sports, metrics aren't always accurate. The autopause for running records pace when you've slowed down and practically stopped. The swim data in Movescount, the web interface where you see all your data, shows pace and distance for rest periods (they said they might fix that at some point in the future). Data graphs become useless as a result. The app is absurdly useless at showing or comparing data and is only good for uploading workouts. And average paces on the watch, the app, the website and the graph on the website, are often all different for the same workout. Weird, huh. Oh, and sometimes the same exact workout gave me calorie estimates of over 100% off from one another. (Another problem they acknowledged and have to fix.) In fairness, I like the style of the watch and the layout of the interface. It seemed like a better product than the competition, which is why I chose this one. And Suunto did fix one problem I had which was that no swim pace showed up on the phone app at all. But that's the only one they fixed. The other problems I emailed them about they just acknowledged and I'm not sure they cared about fixing them. Oh, and the activity tracker isn't very well thought through, with labels like "moderate" and "vigorous" and graphs of calories that aren't clearly active or inactive calories...I had to email them to ask what all that meant. Finally, the watch is big. It's very comfortable, but it's still bulky. And it's plastic. Bulky and plastic means you're going to be hitting it against things and it's going to get scratched, at least on the plastic parts. I know, this is a bad review, but I'm giving all this detail with the hope that they'll fix these problems soon. I'm going to switch to a competitor's watch, but I really will miss one feature the Ambit has that no competitor seems to have...autopause in the pool when you stop at the wall in between intervals. Good job with that, Suunto. Now please fix everything else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional So far I am enjoying the watch. The biggest inconvenience is that the watch does so much, to fully utilize it you have to read the directions. Which if for some reason you don't get in the box you can go to the Suunto website to get. It's great to be able to track my workouts on a daily basis on my phone and/or computer. The smartphone app is functional. You can change some of the settings on the watch by pairing it with your phone. It's a smart watch so you can get messages on the phone. (I have no need for this) There are a lot of features/functions to become acquainted with, so be patient. I had a couple of questions that I sent in to Suunto and the responded in about 72 hours. I will tell you to make sure you really moisten the sensors on the HR monitor or it will not pair with the watch. I did luck out and find this watch at a garage sale! The downside for me is the length of time it takes to learn how to use the watch to it's fullest; but for me I like tech stuff so I'll spend probably too much time on this!

I can’t really appreciate all of the focus on ‘shared data’ for social media app’s functionality but would really like to read a sold review of the watches internal multifunction ability and reliability. Thanks
