Suunto AMBIT Everyday and Mountain Exploration

According to six-time world mountain running champion Jonathan Wyatt the Suunto AMBIT has all the features a trail runner and mountain athlete need, in one unit. One main issue he has come across as an endurance athlete, is the battery life on sport watches with GPS .

With a lithium-ion rechargable battery that has an enhanced lifetime of up to 50 hours in GPS mode, the Suunto AMBIT does not have this problem. As with all Sunnto's dive instruments the AMBIT is water resistant up to 100m (328 ft) and is encased in a BuiltToLast casing with mineral crystal lens.
