The Suunto Ambit3 Sport Sapphire offers applications for running, cycling and swimming. Many more features can be added via the Suunto App Zone.

With the free Suunto Movescount App (currently available for iPhone, and released for Android in 2015), phone push notifications can be sent directly to the Ambit3 Sport Sapphire. Users can quickly see who is texting or calling, allowing them the freedom to continue their activity unimpeded by phone calls or messages.

The watch’s built-in GPS provides accurate speed, distance and location throughout exercise. Navigation capabilities include a full range of options, like the handy Track Back app that guides users back to the starting point, ensuring worry-free exploration.

The Suunto Smart Sensor, included in the HR package option, provides accurate heart rate monitoring and calorie measurements even when the watch is not being worn. Once the exercise recording is started, users can leave the watch behind to go swim, join a group fitness class, or anything else. The Smart Sensor will store heart rate data and transfer it to the watch automatically.

The Ambit3 Sport Sapphire features a white, minimalistic look combined with stainless steel and 18 karat rose gold. A soft, silicone strap is sized to fit smaller wrists and has optimized overall thickness that gives it great feel while maintaining all essential features for the active woman.


Timo Yliluoma, designer of the Ambit3 Sport Sapphire, says, “This is a beautiful watch for an active lifestyle that we designed especially for women. We aimed for a design that is as striking out on the town as it is on the mountain trail. I believe we achieved that.”
