    Re: Suunto Traverse

    Looks promising. No GLONASS until a software update at some point. If I can add cycling I might bite after others have reviewed it.

    No Glonass?? But it says it has it right on the suunto site? Plus it also says cycling as well. Maybe you should give the new traverse page on suuntos site a good look over.

    Glonass is implemented in hardware but will not be activated in software till respective update is available. It's listed on the site.

    Great. I'll be looking for more info. Appreciate it.

    I think you're right. It looks like the "basemap" is merely free topo maps in movescount you can use the create routes for the watch. Imo, the watch does NOT have a basemap if it cannot be viewed directly on the watch itself.

    I am encouraged that the Traverse does have basic running, biking, hr functions. I know someone posted they don't care about DC Rainmaker, YouTube, etc. as sources of info about the watch, they want to hear from Suunto. Well, Suunto's product page is very short on details and operation, so I will be looking for those 3rd party reviews. Is it just me, or is Suunto just terrible at marketing?

    Anyway, there may be enough in this watch for me to move to it from my Ambit Peak 3. However, I really should wait to see what the next Ambit will be like. If it shares the same form factor, I'd likely prefer it.

    Re: Suunto Traverse

    Just wanted to update you all here since this information is not listed on the site. I have confirmed with Suunto that the strap is indeed 24mm. So get those nato straps ready boys! This is also nice since the straps on the Core (with lugs) are 24mm so you can mix and match as necessary.

    Yes I think Suunto's marketing sucks too. There should have been a bullet point list on their site of what the Traverse can do. Too much fluff and not enough substance. I don't care about watching a video with pretty pictures and no dialog.

    Not only will I be waiting for 3rd party reviews (that's apparently what it will take to find out what all the watch will do, since Suunto won't tell us), but also user impressions. Specifically from those users who also own the Ambit3 and/or Fenix3 and who compare the accuracy of the GPS tracks.

    Yes nice that it can be a running watch too, but like you I'll probably wait for the Ambit 4. I just bought the 3 in April and the added features in the Traverse are for hiking, which I won't be doing any of until next May or June.

    I'm curious though, since it has running mode, if it will have R-R functionality.

    Re: Suunto Traverse

    I'm guessing the only thing it can do that the Ambit3 can't is count steps and has breadcrumb view of the track.
    And this can easily be added to the A3 via an update, the question is will they?
