    Bringing you the Suunto Apps!

    With the 2.0 update, the Ambit users can download and develop their own features to their watch in the Suunto App Zone. The Suunto App Zone takes sports watch customization to a whole new level, bringing counters, estimations and much more to your Ambit. Visit the Suunto App Zone in Movescount.com to see the already available Apps and customize your Ambit like you want.

    As an example of already existing Suunto Apps, there’s an app that lets you see your estimated finish time on a marathon; or another one that lets you to know the real incline of the hill you’re heading up.

    If you can’t find the feature you need, create your own App with the Suunto App Designer. Using the simple, web-based App Designer, you can combine Ambit readings into a sophisticated calculation, creating a totally original Ambit feature.

    The 2.0 update also adds the much anticipated Foot POD support and ANT+ compatibility, along with an Interval Timer.
