A fresh set of Suunto Ambits were launched to the Philippine Market last June 14, 2013 at California Pizza Kitchen in Rockwell attended by Print and Social Media participants as well as noted names in the running, multisport and mountain climbing community. The launch was simple and concise and here are the highlights.

Suunto Brand Manager Mascy Cabuhat-Pineda introduces Suunto and the new Ambits.

Suunto was founded in 1936 by Tuomas Vohlonen, a Finnish orienteer and inventor of the liquid-filled field compass. Since then Suunto has been at the forefront of design and innovation for sports watches, dive computers and instruments used by adventure seekers all over the globe. From the highest mountains to the deepest oceans, Suunto physically and mentally equips outdoor adventurers to conquer new territory.

Coach Ige Lopez tells us how Suunto Ambit powered his TNF 100 Trail Run.

One of the strengths of Suunto is the battery life and Coach Ige shares how Suunto Ambit was able to last the whole 100 kilometres at the Scenic Baguio Benguet Terrain with its 50 hours battery life.  I also joined The North Face albeit a shorter distance and  GPS Signal here can be challenging which is another  strength of Suunto since they have faster GPS detection capabilities and not to mention advance navigation features.

Coach Andy Leuterio demonstrates Movescount.

When using Suunto, you’ll be using movescount.com to log in the workouts, Coach Andy Leuterio breaks down all the neat features of Movescount.  Movescount has all the right features with metrics from heart rate, pace, altitude and others.  It also gives you a clearer map as well as breaks down a work out based on different level of efforts and training effects.  All your moves and progress would be logged in here.

    Wow a powerful watch. It seems that it housed the mind of the CPU in a sleek watch like that.

    How does it differ from other watches? I understand that the runners/marathoners are comfortable in using this kind of watch. Am I correct in my presumption?

  4. Rebel Sweetheart

    This baby is definitely for you, Franc! It’s something you can put into very good use. 🙂

    It’s my first time to see Tessa in this photo that isn’t wearing a head dress. Hehe Anyhow, I wonder if GreenBelt or Glorietta has Time Depot stores?

    Nice watch, but it’s going to take a LOT of effort for me to move to Suunto from Garmin 🙂
