By creating a version for Apple and Android, Suunto wanted to ensure that a maximum number of consumers can turn to their concepts of smartwatch. Despite prices relatively high (a Fitbit with cardio costing € 250), the generation Ambit3 is relatively well positioned in the market of connected watches for sport.

Being able to share almost immediately, his recent experiences on the larger community movescount, brings also a huge more to the company Suunto. Be able to create his own movie in 3D from photos or those of others should still once attempt more than an athlete.

And Compared to Others?

It is clear that with such prices, Suunto is to aim for a certain category of sports population (a smartwatch 500? Only Apple had dared!) but keep in mind that “when you love it does not count. However behind amounting rather therefore, hides a smartwatch very very very resistant (especially the model Sapphire), incredibly reliable and especially a technological arsenal with more or less explaining its price.
