The SUunto Ambit 3 is a complete multisports watch. In this review I tap into the basic features.
When Garmin finally caught up on swimming heart rate (with Polar and Suunto) by introducing two new heart rate monitors, it also casually mentioned a Silver/Black edition of the 920XT. But, how to get one?
The Garmin Forerunner 220 is mostly a running watch but dubs as a pretty nice normal watch too. It’s light (40.7 grams) and it can connect via Bluetooth to your phone.
The TomTom MultiSport Cardio has a nifty feature that it measures your heart rate on your wrist. It uses green LED lights and a sensor to measure the blood flow and by that determine your heart rate.
First off, the Ambit 3 is available in Peak and Sport edition, I’ll use the Sport edition for this comparison as I feel it’s the better option for a triathlete. The Peak is the better watch, but if you swim, bike and run (or any of those by itself), the Sport edition is all you need.
With the launch of the Garmin 920XT came a new quick release set, this because the watch got a new design and didn’t fit the old parts. Here’s how to install your quick release in a couple of simple steps.
Suunto Announced the Ambit 3 series in early 2014 and the watch has two different varieties, being the Peak and the Sport. If you’re a Triathlete, I absolutely advise to buy the Ambit 3 Sport as the features of the Peak are of no benefit to you and it’s slightly cheaper than the Peak. While the looks are nearly identical to the Ambit 2, The Ambit 3 no longer supports ANT+ as Suunto chose to go with Bluetooth support.
