    Re: Ambit Update

    Try googling "fusedalti". Only a few results and mostly in german, but the specs are there! After having gotten familiar with the specs, my humble opinion and guess is there are no such changes that would require changes in hardware (such changes that wouldn't work on so-far ambit).

    Apart from some of the swimming features perhaps. I've seen one of the sites that the new ambit measures "impact" of each swim stroke for distance calculation. This may require a more sensitive accelerometer, but I'm hoping not :)

    Re: Ambit Update

    I would just like a Storm Alarm, weather trend arrow, and count down timer. This is like asking a 5 star reasurant if they can make a decent hamburger.........so far I am stumping the chef at Suunto.

    Re: Ambit Update

    I'm not sure about this new 'fusedALTI' but pretty much all features listed above are possible to implement in 'old' Ambit via new firmware or at least i sure hope so :(

    @bysini give us a feedback about Suuntos answer on that one.

    Re: Ambit Update

    Why is this called Ambit 2?

    Seem to be variation of looks just like with the Core. No HW change (except Sapphire crystal in the Sapphire version). All these new functions should be possible with a new FW update from Suunto in the current Ambit. To truly be a Ambit 2 it should have a vibration alarm(this new Ambit software will apparently have support for the new ANT+ device profile Audio Control so it will be able to act as a remote for an audio device, so can be used as a form of alert when using a audio device, how that will work I do not know but that is not a full replacement for vibration alerts because you will not always have access to a audio device) some wireless function (BT 4.1 anyone?), and maybe something else like bigger memory space.

    But I fully expect all these changes to be made available to us current Ambit users!

    As for the changes I like all of them but there is still some stuff not added and some concerns. We do not yet know if the new storm alarm function is as smart as it was in the X10 where it was usable even when moving vertically because it was tied in/assisted by the GPS. If it is as limited as in the Core then that is not ok given the Ambits capacity with built in GPS to assist the function when on the move. Have the GPS time sync been improved? As it is now it is only usable when the time is not off more than 15 minutes and that is to lame compared to what the fenix and the old X10 could do. Still only 1 minute and 1 second GPS sample rates? We need a third 15-20 second sample rate for walking speeds, 1 second is to fast and 60 second too slow. Still no Temperature Tempe support? (The Ant+ Environment device profile should be added so that Tempe would work). I see no indication of a new data format, a binary format just like in the fenix would be a welcome addition since that increases the amount of available data points within the constraints of very limited memory space. Also I think the alarm function should be improved and a full world time function with a quick switch function. The dual time function is a bit lame. But I do like that we will finally get a Timer and Interval Timer functionality! Just hope it will be implemented correctly.

    These are my observations with the information we now have about Ambit 2....
