I have owned the Suunto Ambit for over a year now, and it has clearly been the best ‘smart watch’ I have come across. It has:
– GPS : recording tracks, waypoints, navigation
– Apps. Yes it has a thriving app store at movescount.com and you can code your own.
It connects to your Mac via a USB cable and the ‘MovesCount’ app, plus simultaneously gets charged as well. The battery lasts about a month without GPS. If GPS is active, it lasts about 17 hours.
Apart from the regular time, stopwatch, alarm, storm forecasts, sunrise/sunset etc. The new Ambit3 can display phone notifications on your watch via a connected phone app, but I have never really been a fan of notifications on the watch. I can always look at my phone, equally handy, for that.
