One VERY BIG THING that needs pointing out is that one can ONLY upload to Movescount and can’t use the data collected with any other software!!!!!!! That means, particularly if you are a cyclist, and want to use power to manage your training your are effectively banned from using TrainingPeaks, WKO+, Golden Cheetah and many other really good bits of software. So, marvellous watch though the Ambit2 is, it will be my last Suunto purchase unless they allow one’s own data to be used with other software. They don’t mention that it is not compatible with other software, as all products are from competing manufacturers such as Garmin, Polar etc. It is something most people would expect.
