Suunto Ambit2 R

Leave a Reply

R stands for runners.  Suunto has updated their successful line of GPS watches with the Ambit2 R optimised for running.

Ambit2 R

The features include :

  • FusedSpeed, a unique combination of GPS and accelerometer data from your wrist. Suunto Ambit2 R also measures running cadence from your wrist.
  • Track-back and full navigation offer the freedom to explore new trails without getting lost.
  • Suunto Apps, Virtual coach, Ghost runner, Running efficiency, High intensity intervals and Marathon time to mention a few from the thousands available. 

The Ambit2 R will be available in March, in black or white, with or without a heart rate belt. All software will be available for for download to update the existing Ambit family members including my very own Ambit2 S.

The main difference to the S is that the R will not toggle between sports and will only record one activity at a time. It also lacks Ant+ compatibility with some cycling accessories but if you are a runner this won’t be a problem.

Not bad…
