what's up with my Ambit 2S


  • Bronze Member

    I have an AMBIT 2S in perfect condition and I have more than 1000 moves, what do you want to say with that email?
    That my watch I can throw it?
    How will I modify the clock options?
    How can I enter routes?
    What you are doing is illegal, it is called programmed obsolence and in Europe it is punishable, that you know that this will have consequences

    Consumer law in the UK states
    ‘Consumers are entitled to a free of charge repair or replacement, discount or refund by the seller, of defective goods or goods which do not conform with the contract of sale. For goods purchased in England or Wales, these rights expire six years from delivery of the goods and for goods purchased in Scotland, these rights expire five years from delivery of the goods’.
    By removing Movescount and the functionality it provides in interfacing with the Ambit 2 and 3 it would be in breach of the ‘contract of sale’
    I await with interest to see if this actually happens. Could cost them a lot more than the savings they would make by closing Movescount

    We hope that a solution is looked for like this.
    They could also get basic software so that those of us who have these watches can continue using it.
    Because it is clear that the movement of Sunnto is to leave out of play his old watches, which were so well built that they do not break and that is why they have the problem.
    But they forget that these watches are worn by people who are hard-working sportsmen and this can hurt them a lot.
    I hope you reconsider and find an intermediate solution.

    Approved.
    More that 500 moves with my Ambit2.
    I would never not accept such programmed obsolescence.

    I do not follow the Suunto news that much and was only aware of these developments the e-mail sent out by Suunto end of April.

    I am also an Ambit 2 user, my father has an Ambit (1).

    I think now, I would still chose Ambit 3 over Spartan or Suunto 9: I do not need a colored touch screen on my watch that I take into the outdoors, where it is likely to be bashed by rock and ice…
    And I can’t operate a touch screen with gloves…

    It had everything I needed and still checks all the boxes today.

    So my vote goes to a platform that can be accessed on a pc, where I can upload data, download routes I create, create sport modes, … and connect with my cable.
    Any replacement should have the same capabilities as Movescount.
    But for me movescount is perfect, so in my opinion “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it”.

    What is the best way to follow the news on this subject and where can we show Suunto that we would not like movescount to disappear?
