So far, I'm not even sure Suunto is actually working on an Ambit 4. It's been a long time people on the internet are saying "maybe next spring", "maybe for fall", ... and the Suunto people are just saying "Sorry, we have no information to share about that." IMHO, if they had something being prepared, they'd be a little more cheerful : "Hey runners, prepare to be excited, we'll have some news for you. Stay tuned"... Things like that... :-(
I should have a deeper look at this one : http://www.suunto.com/Products/sports-watches/Suunto-Traverse/Suunto-Traverse-Amber/
Would it meet my needs ?
EDIT : actually, after comparing it to my current Ambit 2s HR (http://www.suunto.com/Compare-Products/?products=7209;14011
), looks like this new Suunto Traverse is not for me : it's more an outdoor/trekking/hiking watch rather than a multisport/triathlon.
EDIT 2 : Well, some good news (?) coming from Suunto ?
- 02/10/2015 : announcement of the Suunto Traverse : http://www.suunto.com/en-US/Products/Sports-Watches/Suunto-Traverse/Suunto-Traverse-Amber/
- 20/10/2015 : announcement of the Suunto Kailash : http://www.suunto.com/en-US/Watch-Collection/Suunto-Kailash-Collection/
None of these watches are sports watches as the Ambits. They are actually dedicated to outdoor, hicking and "adventure" (?). However, if this is the season for new products announcements from Suunto, let's keep our fingers crossed !!! ;-)
- 07/11/2015 : announcement of the Suunto D6i Novo : http://www.suunto.com/Products/dive-computers-and-instruments/Suunto-D6i-Novo/Suunto-D6i-Novo-Stone/
This is for scuba diving, nothing I'm interested in (running & outdoors), but... one more new Suunto watch... ;-) What about a NEW running watch ?
