via Blue­tooth Smart, which means com­pat­i­bil­ity with a wide range of de­vices. Its data can be shared both ways and users can also re­ceive push no­ti­fi­ca­tions from their smart­phone on this GPS watch. All data on its dis­play ap­pear large and clear. We per­son­ally like the change. Beyond that, the other fea­tures are still pretty much iden­ti­cal, from the se­lec­tion of sport modes to its record­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

There's no lengthy setup process for the Am­bit3 Peak, and it only took us one to two min­utes to sync it with our smart­phone via the Movescount app. Once con­nected, we de­cided to test its ca­pa­bil­i­ties by wear­ing it dur­ing a hik­ing trip. We found its nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem to be quite ac­cu­rate as it guides us through a spi­der­web of trails as, well as sets way­points for mak­ing dis­tances and al­ter­ing pre-made plans. De­spite the lim­i­ta­tions of its dis­play, users are still able to view route that they have taken, the points where they stop to rest, and more. Another in­ter­est­ing thing about the Am­bit3 Peak is its abil­ity to record heart rate met­rics while swimming; how­ever, this won't work with­out the heart rate strap.

All in all, the Su­unto Am­bit3 Peak is an ideal GPS watch, as it's packed with use­ful fea­tures for hik­ers, trail run­ners and mul­ti­sport ath­letes.
