Ambit 3 still one of the most accurate gps watches?
@André-Faria I recently messured a route via google maps that I am running very often with Suunto 9. There was no difference. Watch said 14.1km und Google maps said also 14.1km. I‘m very pleased with GPS Suunto 9. Also in mountains FusedAlti went so incredible accurate…
I usually run with a frined that uses an Ambit 3 Run and I use the S9B (GPS only), in my opinion and comparing both watches I found the following:
- In trail runs (using custom trail running sport mode), with around 300 m ascent very 10 km and some trees the Ambit 3 has most of the times a perfect track, the S9B has a very good track but not as good as the A3 and falls short on distance comparing the A3. Examples: S9B: 21.12 km - A3: 21.35 / S9B: 13 km - A3: 13.10 / S9B: 11.02 km - A3: 11.12 km
- In flat runs (using custom running mode), here the A3 has teh same or falls short on distance comparing with the S9B, tracks are quite similar. Examples: S9B: 11.43 km - A3: 11.31 km / S9B: 11.32 km - A3: 11.30 km
I do not know if there is any diference in the sports mode that can affect this, but what I explain I have noticed several times.
