Re: Suunto Core or wait for Ambit

It's the long sought after Über watch.
I just convinced myself that I cannot afford this watch. And then you called it the Über watch...

I'm still going to be looking for a deal on a Core, but the full feature set of the Ambit would actually be perfect for the wife. I'd just rather have it on my wrist.

Re: Suunto Core or wait for Ambit

The information about the Ambit is limited but is available for members of promotive.com and who will attend Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake City, UT. This is the big brother to the X10 and the features will include the following:
I was really looking forward to my Promotive account for buying a Suunto. But the Promotive price is about the same as the internet prices I'm finding. But Promotive might be a good place to buy the Ambit when it's released, since you get a flat discount.

Re: Suunto Core or wait for Ambit

This is huge to me. Advanced heart rate monitoring with Peak Training Effect and Recovery Time.

I just got the Core last week. Love the watch. I've been looking to get a T6D for training (upgrade from my M5). This might offer just enough of the T6D's feature set to enable one watch vs two.

$600+ would be a little rich though.
Unfortunately, they can charge that much. I just can't afford it. I hate all of you who get the Ambit.

It doesn't seem like the Core would have any advantage over the Ambit. Just to throw out a random guess, I wonder if they basically used a Core as a base and built GPS and other features around it?

Re: Suunto Core or wait for Ambit

Awesome.

Now to wait for Elementums and Cores to pop up in the FS section for dirt cheap as people flock to buy this :-!.
I'm going to wait for the pricing to make a choice. It's a bad economy and Suunto may decide to go lower in price than expected.

Also, even though I really want a Core, the Ambit has everything I need. It might be worth the extra dough.

Why can you not imagine anyone using an Ambit as an everyday watch?

I certainly have used my X10 as a daily beater. Its the Suunto watch I have worn most!

I think the Ambit seems to look very elegant just like a Core. I can definetly see the Ambit work just fine in a casual environment. Perhaps not with a suite and tie but definetly with Jeans and T-shirt or sweatshirts.
I could see myself wearing the Ambit with just about anything. With a long sleeve shirt lower profile is usually easier for me to work with, but I would have no problem wearing the Ambit anywhere.
