The suunto 9 does everything the ambit does except apps.
AFAIK there is no real structured workouts feature on newer Suunto watches. And as a “reliable” partner, Suunto decided to remove this feature and throw it to trash for A3 owners 😭 , except with Suunto Apps, which is something really different in easy to use terms function. 😒
So yes, when Suunto removes some valuable features on the Ambit line, we can see that S9 does almost everything that ambit does. 😐
