Fenix 3 looks better, it's obviously smaller and probably more comfortable. And I'm saying all of this with an Ambit 3 Peak Sapphire on my wrist.

I'm was just browsing (again) Garmin forum and the number of problems people have there is astonishing for a 450-550 euros device. It looks like they are beta testers for Garmin on their own money. I really, really hope that Garmin fixes those issues for all those people and for raising the bar for Ambit 4.

Oops. It seems like Garmin dropped the ball here. The guy who posted that thread also posted another one a few days earlier with a 7 devices test and he was defending Garmin saying that GPS accuracy is were it should be. But it seems like he reached a different conclusion after all.

I really hope that it's something that can be fixed by a firmware update. But if it's a design flaw.... (I doubt it, but who knows).

Yeah, you are right. I was/am in love with Fenix 3's looks and functions (on paper at least) but what's the point if it's so inaccurate and unstable?!

I feel sorry for all those people who paid $500 and believed Garmin's marketing claims and I hope they'll be able to fix it via firmware updates.

@Artivis: Thank's for sharing your opinion. Having both devices makes you much less susceptible to fanboyism. Of course, personal preference is still there... but you're only human


About Garmin Connect vs. Movescount: You can also not use Movescount and link your account directly to a number of services (Strava, 2Peak, SportTracks, etc) so I think it's more seamless than manually uploading your moves to third party services. But of course you are limited by Suunto's choice of partner apps.

I'm sorry if I offended anyone but I don't denigrate anything. I count myself among those who don't have both watches. I realize that myself, by buying Suunto, I'm more inclined to favour Ambit 3 and minimize Fenix 3's features or overestimate it's problems.


I value more the opinion of those who have both watches for obvious (and not so obvious) reasons.

I can't read Fenix's screen in that video so I don't know what's going on with it, I can only guess. That guy has another video where screen is more legible.

By the way, that video is about GPS acquisition speed in a challenging environment. You have no way of knowing which watch is more accurate from that video or which watch tracks better.

You need access to the file system to be able to do that. That's no problem on a Mac/Windows and in the future on Android but good luck accessing file system on iOS.

It can be done (re-sync a move) on Windows/Mac. I don't recall how, but if you look on Q&A you'll find the answer. If I stumble across it I'll post it here.
