Hey John. Going to test the Ambit3? I'm sold just on downloading offline......infinite memory.
Thanks! Mt Sahale.... Is a beautiful mountain in the North Cascdaes. About a three hour drive from my place in Canada... More than a few times the boarder guards ask why I do not just ski at home.
Funny, Mike. I feel the same way about Canada. We took three trips to your awesome mountains this winter and barely skied at home! Have a great summer!
Excellent outing John! Way to go, you should feel psyched even if your body is worked. I know the feeling on that very similar run...those hills are ruthless. :)
Thanks Gar! Lets talk soon, I'm leaving Monday!
Looks good on paper, though! 2106m ascent & over 30K rarely feel good ;)
Thanks, hs. That helps me feel better about the run. I actually recovered pretty well and had a good easy day yesterday. Taking the day off today!
You compare a lot of devices! Any favorites?
Yes, I've been fortunate to be testing and reviewing products for The HeartRate Watch Company here in Bozeman. Great company, BTW. I've been reviewing from "the common man" perspective as I'm not super-duper techno savvy (but I'm learning!) My personal favorites so far are the Polar RCX5 and the Ambit. Haven't tried the Polar w/GPS yet. Battery life hope is OK.
Love the Ambit, but I don't like how it fits my wrist. Sometimes it almost seems like too much watch!
I would have considered the Polar but no baro altimeter was a deal breaker for me.
I'm with you on the barometer!
That is why I keep coming back to Suunto. Tried a 910XT and it was a disaster. Could rally get reliable elevation data. Other Garmins are not worth it to me.
How is your running going?
Folks, lets try and get this group moving! Let everyone in on your adventure plans and what you are doing to prepare for them. Ask questions, help each other out.
Let's do blue moves!
The Ambit3 Connected family is launched and kicking!

I changed the name into Ambit & t6d/c lovers. I have used the t6d for years with satisfaction. Now I also have the AMBIT: WOW!
GPS elevation reading.
Shows the amount of ascent, i.e. cumulative amount of gained altitude during the exercise. Result is given in meters.
Gives a storm alarm when sea level air pressure drops fast enough. The gradient limit is 4hPa per 3 hours.
Shows the time of next sunset or sunrise, whichever is predicted to come first.
This is an improved version of my Barometer app. Algorithm inaccuracy now less than 1hPa up to 4000 meter altitude (Ambit sensor inaccuracy not included). This is my attempt to make a barometer that displays the barometric pressure at your location. You can also simulate a barometer by setting your reference altitude to zero in the standard Ambit. But it is really nice and more convenient to have a barometer view with all three key parameters available at the same time in the screen: altitude, atmospheric pressure (AP) and sea level pressure (QNH). Make your custom training mode and include all these, like I did! On my wish list, but not implemented yet, is an altitude trim term to correct for air humidity, air temperature and sensor errors. Trim can be done by setting altitude and pressure simultaneously and independently to known values. The trim coefficient can then be calculated and subsequent altimeter operation will be more accurate. Currently the trim is fixed at factory cali...
This will find your Minimum Heart Rate while sleeping.
Oxygen level at the given altitude as percentage of maximum at the see level. Formula: (1+H+(H^2)/2+(H^3)/6+(H^4)/24)*100, with H = -ALTITUDE/7990
Show your Recovery Time in hours during your exercise with the use of an HR belt.
Want to know the real incline of the hill or mountain you are heading up? Use this App to find out. Set this in one of your custom sport modes and press lap when starting each climb to see your real-time incline.
