View all Essentially an updated version of the Suunto X10, the Ambit provides a combination of navigation and performance-tracking features that Suunto says makes it the go-to watch for outdoor athletes, from casual hikers to hard-charging mountaineers. You can use the GPS to track or route waypoints and navigate your way to and from your destination. On the performance side, the Ambit uses an integrated accelerometer along with the GPS to track your performance via such measures as speed and distance. When you equip the Ambit with the optional heart rate belt, it doubles as a heart rate monitor. When you get back inside, you can upload your data to Suunto's Web community Movescount.com for analysis, discussion and planning. The Ambit watch will hit the market in March. About the Author
