Now it’s time to do a quick Test Drive of the Ambit2 S… I strapped it on and tried it out for my training this week, I found that the interface is simple enough that I don’t really need to read the manual to configure and start using the GPS watch.

After a Swim session, a Bike session and a Sunday Run Race, I uploaded the Ambit2 S data to the Suunto Movescount Website for Data Analysis.

After a quick install process, Movescount.com quickly summarizes all of my training results and categorizes them according to training type (Swim, Bike, Run, Multisport).

You can also go and do an in-depth analysis of each training, equipped with a very accurate GPS and HRM data, the Suunto Ambit2 S was able to give a very comprehensive summary of my training pace, distance, running time and a map of the route I took. I simply can’t wait to unlock more features of my new toy!
