The SUUNTO Ambit3 Peak HR is a huge step above the Ambit2 S. This watch has Bluetooth connectivity to allow you to use a wide variety of pods and sensors, such as the Wahoo Blue SC bike pod HERE. You can also connect to the mobile app from Movescount, which was a main selling point for me to lust after this watch. I received it as a Christmas gift and eagerly opened the box and started the setup.
Since I already have a Movescount account it was really simple to connect and begin editing the settings for the various built-in training modes. This watch also allows for swimming modes, since the Bluetooth heart rate sending unit can store data while under water and sync with the watch when out of the water.
I especially appreciate that I can now travel with the watch. The memory can store up to about 30 hours of training data, plenty of storage for most “normal” users, but with a mountaineering expedition that can fill up rather quickly. By syncing to the phone, you can offload data to the mobile app and not have to worry about the data rolling over and deleting older data to store new data.

If you’re in the market for a great watch with a variety of features that most of you in training for extreme athletic events will find appealing and useful, the Suunto Ambit3 Peak HR is a great watch and well worth it.
This particular model is a special edition color that might be a bit outlandish to some, but I enjoy it. It goes well with most of my already outlandish colors that I wear while training on the roads running and cycling, and trail running in the mountains.
Stay tuned for a video coming up about connectivity and syncing.
