    Black Ambit with Silver Strap

    I read in this forum sometime ago where member pjc3 said he couldn't get the perfect fit with his Black Abmit strap and swapped it with a Silver strap.
    I have the same problem & decided to follow pjc3 & ordered the Silver strap online. Now my Ambit fits much better.
    As pjc3 said, the silver triangle is a bonus!

    My strap is a little loose, the opposite side to the GPS. Any suggestions on what tool I need to tighten it?

    Couple of days ago on suunto site: The right tool to tighten the Ambit strap screws is a torx driver size T6. The strap should be firmly attached to the watch casing, the screws can be tighten up to the point where the strap doesn´t move at all.

    Ditto. Previously either a little too loose or a little too tight. Now a perfect fit. The silver strap also looks a tad better IMO.

    Just to confirm also. I bought the silver strap as the original was just not quite right. Now perfect fit. As my running/hiking mate now also has a black Ambit, we won't get them mixed up.

    Also got the silver strap after reading this thread. It sure does fit inbetween the holes on the black one. Nevertheless I found that my black strap now fits perfectly after wearing it too tight for a couple of days. Great to have a spare strap though, and also spare screws and nuts.

    Just wish the silver strap had a black buckle. Love the silver metal triangle though.

    I've also ordered one, the standard black strap is (imo) horrible...

    Doubt I'll get it until next year now though, as I ordered it yesterday :(

    Scratch that, according to DHL it left Belgium yesterday and is in the UK already!! I may actually have it on Monday! :D

    ETA: Scratch Monday... DHL dropped it off this morning!! Sunday delivery is almost unheard of, especially since I only paid for regular shipping! Top marks Suunto (and DHL!)

    Re: Black Ambit with Silver Strap

    Just a little warning when changing straps on the ambit: If you tighten the screws too hard, the nut will "carve" into its slot in the watch casing. In my case this has caused one of the slots to expand in size so that the nut starts rotating when the screw reaches the first thread. Practically this means it's difficult to tighten the screw sufficiently. When attaching a strap, I have bend away the strap and insert a small flathead screwdriver in the nut slot to keep the nut from rotating while tightening the screw. It works, but would really not have to do it this way. Lesson to learn: don't overtighten the screws!
