    Re: Suunto Traverse

    Here in the US, Amazon is selling the Ambit3 Sapphire with HRM belt for $440, which is $5 less than what the Traverse is going for with regular glass and no belt. I wonder what that indicates.

    I'm with the graphite Traverse crowd. I've worn a Suunto Core for many years, and am looking forward to replacing it with the Traverse.

    Nothing. Pricing has always been cheaper on Amazon than through Suunto directly, or an AD.

    I preordered the Black version. Still debating between that and the graphite version though. I really like both. I like the darker bezel, but really like the lighter colored bezel as well. Decision, decisions.

    Battery Life: The Best/Good/OK times in the specs for the Traverse are 10hr, 15hr, 100Hr. So, that's like a Sport, not a Peak.

    thickness is 16.5mm, which is a tiny bit thicker than a Sport, and thinner than a Peak.

    Customizeable sport modes: max of 5 with 4 screens per. (vs an Ambit which can do 10 sports in the watch)
    It implies that swimming is in there as a potential sport mode.
    doesn't indicate any kind of multisport mode- which would be a loss.

    So- this appears to be, more or less, a new Ambit 3 ish, with a sport battery and a peak's pressure sensor. with a vibrator, GLONASS, bezel antenna, and perhaps some functional limitation? I still don't see why they don't call this an Ambit 4O (for Outdoor).

    I preordered the Amber Version, really looking forward to this watch. Looking to replace my Core that I sold and this fits the bill nicely for me! I have tons of 24mm NATO straps that will finally be back on the wrist.

    Different case/antenna design, different UI, different functionality (well, way that the functionality is implemented).

    Which is to say, the same argument could be made in reverse: Why did they call the Ambit3 an Ambit and not something else, to make it clear(er) that this was a different (BTLE-only, app-connected, smart-ish) watch?

    Plus, for an Ambit4, there should be steps *up* in functionality, not down. It all comes back to how the Traverse is meant for a different customer/user segment than the Ambit line.

    Re: Suunto Traverse

    My only reservation about the lack of multisport feature is the inability to change between GPS and no GPS modes in a single log. With only the small battery, power conservation would have been very useful.
