First impressions, beyond the Smurf blue, are that it’s a bulky beast, up there with Garmin’s Fenix 2. Thankfully, on the fly, it’s less noticeable than you’d predict, each function flicked through via one of the reassuringly positive buttons. 

Its feature list is immense, including GPS, navigation, compass, altitude, triathlon option (by manual button press) and bike power support via Bluetooth Smart, which replaces the ANT+ connectivity of the previous model. 

The screen is highly readable on land and at sea, which is one of the major sells of the Ambit3 – with the Suunto Smart Sensor chest strap it measures heart rate under water. Though it displays swim stats after rather than during the session, it’s a worthwhile feature for total multisport analysis. 

Just be careful not to push too hard off the pool wall as it’s susceptible to slipping off. Finally, a whole world of analysis awaits on the excellent Suunto Movescount app. 

Verdict: Not the slimmest, but brilliant functionality and ease of use, 86%
