What in the hell is going on with this drop? I keep getting emails saying it's active, but then it's inactive as soon as I go to check it out. This is something that I've requested several times now too, twice in the past month. Will this be a drop? Or should I just head over to Amazon and stop giving the little guy a chance?

A pretty good chance yep! That's a different drop and it's based on availability, but keep an eye out over the next couple months and we'll do our best.

I think watches from Suunto look great and have many great features but I hate the idea of having to charge my watch. For this reason, I don't think I would ever buy one of these or any other watch that requires charging.

As someone who owns one, you do need to keep in mind that you do NOT have to recharge these nightly unless you are using the GPS feature throughout the day. In my personal experience, using it in conjunction with bluetooth (both paired to an iPhone and used multiple times weekly with a HR monitor) it lasts easily more that a week (unlike, say... an iWatch). Charging can happen overnight once every couple weeks and is in no way onerous.

Despite the occasional issue I am actually quite happy with this watch, it definitely beats other the sub 300usd watches though I think there are probably better options if you are comparing it to watches closer to 500usd.
Some issues me and a mate have had: -the phone app is really not great, if you want a watch which connects reliably to your phone, look elsewhere. -after about a years use there has been 3 or 4 times where the watch has hung on trying to find satellites in otherwise seemingly perfect conditions. I think there was a firmware update not to long ago which may have patched this out but who knows. Even though this only happened extremely rarely I found it insanely frustrating when it did happen, so I thought it was worth mentioning.
The suunto website ('movescount') where you upload activities ('Moves'), before sending them to strava or whatever, is pretty great imhno. It neatly displays a fair amount information, and provides a bunch more options for the moves you upload than strava. There is also a fairly limited watch app builder and community app sharing thing. Which is nice.
Would buy again, esp at this price point.

A bit of an "off the track" question, not sure if someone can answer me: as a humanitarian working in war affected places, I regularly have to go on the field in remote places where local rebellions are active, with a risk of attacks on vehicles and abductions. Is there a way to have someone at my HQ in London track me on a map from a distance using the GPS function of the watch? Would be very handy in case of kidnapping or more serious incident, for the security teams to understand exactly where the incident happened and how to react.
So yeah, off the track, but does someone know if this is possible? Thanks!

Does this one have an option to automatically switch sports within a workout or race (for a triathlon, for example)? I don't want to be fiddling with a lot of buttons during my tri transitions.

You can add custom multi-sport modes through the Movescount site.

As far as I can tell, while there is a multi-sport mode, you have to hold the lap button for around 2 or 3sec to change sports within the multi-sport mode, there is no way to get it to change automatically after a set time or distance or change in some other variable.
Multi-sport mode seems to be quite versatile and you can set up just about any combination of sports including transition periods (which can do whatever you want, its just another sport mode which you happen to call 'transition' so recording things like gps and heart rate while transitioning isn't a problem).
The max sport modes you can include in a multi-sport mode is 6. There is a default tri-multi-sport (which you can modify on the website) and the ability to create and store up to 2 other multi-sport modes on the watch.
Disclamer: I'm not into tri, so my experience with actually using the multi-sport mode is fairly limited... I've played around with it but not done a race or anything using it.

What is the difference between the white and blue that has HR?
Jul 20, 2017
HR versions come with the Suunto heart rate strap. Otherwise, the watches are the same.

I am pretty sure the Ambit3 Peak is Suunto's top of the line watch. You might get the newest software updates with the Vertical.

Points to consider: This adds vibration-based notifications; This feature is still absent on the Peak. I believe the battery life is half as good as that with the Peak, tho.

Have one, love it. At $195, this is a sweet bargain. If you guys have any questions about the watch, fire away and I'll try to answer them.

Totally agree that it's nice to have altitude to double check your location. For example, if you know that the trail goes over a pass that peaks at 12,000', you can get an idea of how much further you have to climb before you get to the top. I use it as a cycling computer, too. It pairs up with the Suunto HR strap and works with any BT power meter, which makes it a great training tool.
It's also fun to track your total vert. For example, I've climbed 92,785 feet this year, as of today. That's more than three Everests from sea level. I think that's pretty neat!

Me and a mate have this watch. Mostly it's great and finds satellites quickly even when indoors on a cloudy day. Occasionally however, for seemingly no reason at all, it will hang on the searching for satellites screen (yes, while I'm standing in the middle of a large open treeless area with completely clear skies). One time while my mate was having this issue with his watch (legit was unable to find satellites for at least an hour) mine was connecting instantly, we were right next to each other, what the heck?!?!
