The Suunto Ambit3 Peak GPS was finally available in the market last September, 2014. If you are familiar with this series, you may notice that the Ambit3 is not much different from its older sibling, the Ambit2, at least from the outside but the software has been seriously revamped.

In general, Ambit3 Peak GPS by Suunto is a tool designed for multisport tracking. Besides for swimming, this watch also tracks other activities too including running, cycling, multisport (triathlon and such), and even hiking thanks to its GPS and altimeter data.


Suunto Ambit3 Peak GPS has steel bezel and mineral crystal lens with a display resolution of 128 x 128 pixels. It weighs about 87 grams and the package includes only 4 items including Ambit3 Peak GPS watch itself, a heart rate strap, a USB cable, and a manual instruction.

The strap pod is small and it has different connector from the previous devices from Suunto. Ambit3 is powered by a rechargeable Lithium-ion that lasts for up to 30 days (in watch mode) or 30 hours (5-seconds GPS update interval) or 200 hours (60-seconds GPS update).

Bluetooth Smart Connectivity

One of the most notable changes found in Ambit3 is the use of Bluetooth Smart Connectivity instead of ANT+ chipset. This means the watch will get direct connectivity with your compatible smartphone, and actually many features are only available when paired with movescount app which can be downloaded from Suunto App Zone.

This app is compatible with iPhone 4S and newer. Supports for Android devices (Jelly Bean 4.3 and up) are promised to arrive this April 2015.

Once paired with a movescount app and your account, all the data are available on the phone as well as on online. The basic tracking features are all covered including for running, cycling, swimming, and multisport.

Outdoor activities tracking features make use of GPS which blends with barometric altimeter and weather data.

– Running: tracking data includes running pace, average pace, cadence, lap, distance, speed, and ghost runner. More features such as lap comparison can be viewed online. You can extend functionality by installing additional app.

– Cycling: the Ambit3 measures speed, real-time average speed, lap, and power. Detailed analysis for power distribution, peak power curve, and others are provided online. This watch supports cadence pod.

– Swimming: Suunto Ambit3 tracks heart rate and swimming metrics at the same time. The metrics include lap, stroke, and distance. There is also automatic interval feature. To activate heart rate recording, you must use the provided heart rate strap. These features work in both indoor and open water swimming activities.

– Multisport: it offers pre-configured multisport modes and exercise summary. Online data provides multisport post-analysis by sport type.

Smartphone Connectivity

Harnessing the power of Bluetooth Smart, Ambit3 by Suunto can push incoming notifications from your phone to the watch.
