I only wish this has non integrated lugs like the Core.
Wonder if there will be a bracelet version. Both my vector and Core are on after market straps (zulu/leather) so I like the option of strap changing. Was never a big fan of rubber straps (even on my Casios).
Current Rotation: || Tag Carrera WAR201D, Luminox F117 PVD Nighhawk, Suunto Ambit, GShock Gulfman/GW2310, Timex Weekender ||
Flipped? Too many to mention Hidden Content (Tag, Hamilton, Tissot, Casio, Suunto, etc)
or the AMBIT Silver Strap:
I am unaware of any discussion about a metal bracelet in the AMBIT's future.
Hey, the good news is we will be able to switch up between these two. Better option than the X9/X10 series.

I've just placed my pre-order for this fantastic little beauty.... Now I need to start counting down until I get it...
My 2cents on the wall charger.
On a $550 item, Suunto should have included the $2 USB wall charger, and thrown in the car charger too.
I mean, seriously.
It's a rechargeable watch, right?
Sure I've got a wall thingy already. But, I'm supposed to steal it from the 'family charging station' when i go on a trip? They'd change the locks on me!
Guess I'll be spending $2 at Amazon. Really - kinda silly.
p.s. This is the watch I've waited my whole life for, so I'm dying to get one. Chargerlessness isn't a showstopper. I guess they know that.

How could Suunto set a so low limit when typical routes... are created from tracks recorded previously by other people, or organizer of events, and come with hundreds, if not thousands of points? If I want to share on movescount.com a track I recorded and found great, noone will be able to import it on his ambit as a route and follow it, because it will be made of 3,000 way points? Garmin is proposing that feature on Garmin connect for a while, through the operation "export to device".
Even for routes prepared on computer by defining waypoints, on a trail of 50 km, which is an average distance for trail running, with a limitation of 100 way points, we have an average of 1 waypoint per 500 meters. Definitely not enough.
I hope this restriction will not be confirmed (X10 can handle 500 way points, better but still not enough to me) and I hope Ambit will come with the possibility of managing hundreds, or thousands, way points. If someone can have information on that matter from Suunto (and hopefully good news...) that would be great to me.

They certainly have teased us with the wording about "future updates" through the wire. Certainly I'm hoping it's functionality and more than just bug fixes.

Then mortals wouldnt have to spend so mich time on Watchuseek wondering how things really work.
What you want is a Course or Track which you can follow. Right?
Apparantly the Ambit has a Trackback feature (I haven't seen details), but if the watch can allow you to follow your own track back, we can only hope that other people's tracks can be imported (a shared Move in Movescount perhaps?).
But alas, such functionally hasn't been announced. Yet.
