Altimeter Watches - Suunto Ambit Black HR
You could call it a watch, but that hardly seems fair. Altitude, location, speed, heart rate, weather conditions – it’s all at your fingertips. And with latest software, you can upgrade your watch to inspire your next adventure. Suunto Ambit software can be upgraded through Movescount so you can get all the latest features and performance enhancements. The new Suunto Ambit - conquering new territory with the world’s first GPS for Explorers. Durability and precision are the essence of Suunto Ambit. Advanced features suit both on and off-season activities for the hardcore explorer.
The Suunto Ambit Black HR also includes the Suunto ANT heart rate belt so you can monitor your heart rate to allow for optimum training zones, calories and recovery suggestions.
The Suunto Ambit has been designed for use in the mountains offering the skier, mountaineer, trail runner and hiker GPS technology, 3D compass, barometer and altimeter combined with an optional heart rate monitor. The Ambit, as in Ambition, is the perfect watch for those training in the mountains as it records speed of ascents along with locations and provides valuable barometric information and temperature.
One great feature of the Ambit is the ability to change the display from Positive to Negative LED. Whether for aesthetics or for use in bright sunshine, you can always have the screen you prefer. The housing has been designed to be super tough and durable ensuring this mountain instrument will withstand knocks in the toughest of conditions and will not let you down when you need it most.
Peak Training Effect
To better reflect the meaning of the Training Effect measurement (TE), Suunto has renamed the measurement to Peak Training Effect (PTE). PTE indicates the impact of a training session on your maximum aerobic performance and is most accurate with medium and high intensity training. The measurement is relative to your current fitness level. The fitter you are, the harder you have to work to reach a higher PTE.
Recovery Time is an estimate of how long your body needs to recuperate after training. The time is based on the duration and intensity of the session, as well as the overall fatigue, accumulating even at lower intensities. Recovery Time accumulates from one session to the next if you train again before the time has expired.
With a conventional compass, you need to hold the compass level to the horizon to get an accurate reading. Suunto’s 3D compasses compensate for tilt, allowing you to get a reading regardless of the angle of your wrist.
The integrated GPS used in watches such as Suunto Ambit is based on the SiRFstarIV technology. The receiver has a very high sensitivity. This helps Ambit to find GPS satellites much quicker and get steadier readings.
Suunto introduces a new, patent-pending technology for speed readings called FusedSpeed. The speed indication is a unique combination of GPS and acceleration sensor readings. The GPS signal is adaptively filtered based on acceleration, giving a more accurate reading at steady speeds and a quicker response to changes in speed.
Route creation and navigation based on waypoints
Create routes based on individual waypoints in Movescount. Download routes to your Suunto Ambit and navigate waypoint by waypoint. Ambit notifies you when you have reached a waypoint and guides you to the next. Both the name and heading of the waypoint are displayed.
ANT+ gives you greater flexibility by extending the range of external devices you can use with Suunto Ambit. Suunto Ambit becomes compatible with ANT+ compliant heart rate belts, Bike PODs, Foot PODs and Cadence PODs from Suunto or other vendors. ANT+ compatibility is available in software update 2.0.
Built To Last casing
Suunto products with BuiltToLast casing have a robust, one-piece composite case with stiff top bezel. The anodized aluminum case and mineral glass display are designed to withstand mechanical shocks and scratching.
The Suunto Ambit Black (HR) package includes Suunto Ambit Black, Suunto ANT Heart Rate Belt, USB power cable, and Quick Guide.
