Although Suunto have recently released the new Ambit 2, the original Ambit hasn’t been discontinued and support is still available – in fact, we will continue to sell the Ambit to provide a slightly cheaper alternative to the Ambit 2 for those on a tighter budget or not needing the multisport function. Some good news for original Ambit owners – software updates are now available via Movescount to add some of the Ambit 2 features to your Ambit.
New, downloadable features include a storm alarm and sunrise/sunset app, countdown timer and an autopause function. The updates will also improve some in-use aspects of the watch, such as connection stability to belts and pods and a faster sync to Movescount.
Due to memory restrictions on the Ambit, some features of the Ambit 2 such as multisport mode will never be available, however these updates do give much improved functionality to your original Ambit which, we hope, is still going strong!
