The Suunto Ambit 3 can be upgraded with the optional Bluetooth Smart compatible heart rate sensor on the market. While swimming, the new sensor stores your heart rate data and transfers it wirelessly to your Ambit3 watch or to the Suunto Movescount App. Pairing the sensor with the free Suunto Movescount App, you can also analyse, relive and share your moves to make every move count. The Suunto Smart Sensor comes with a redesigned heart rate belt, and can also be used on its own when attached to Movesense compatible sports apparel.

The new Suunto Ambit 3 Sport with Heart Rate is aimed at triathletes and multi sport athletes. It gives you all the training features you need for running, swimming, cycling and multisport training. The built in GPS provides you with accurate pace, route navigation and tracking, while the Bluetooth smart heart rate monitor lets you train within your ideal zone. In addition to the familiar features of the outgoing Ambit2 S, you get some great new sport-specific feature highlights in the Ambit3 Sport:

• Swimming: As a much requested new feature, the Ambit3 Sport supports recording your heart rate while swimming. The new Bluetooth Smart heart rate belt with the new Suunto Smart Sensor, stores your heart rate data whilst you are swimming, and then once you get out of the water, it automatically transfers the data to your Ambit3 Sport.

• Recovery time and activity monitoring: The Ambit 3 Sport now provides daily activity monitoring for a more complete estimation of your total recovery time.

Suunto Movescount App for iPhone and iPad
The new free Suunto Movescount App, the heart of the Suunto Connected Family, is a stand-alone app enabling easy tracking and sharing, whether you are a Suunto watch owner or not. The app will first be available for iPhone and iPad, and it can be downloaded from the App Store from 1st of September. Availability of the Android version will be announced later.

New Suunto Smart Sensor for heart rate tracking – optional
The revolutionary design makes this the smallest Bluetooth Smart compatible heart rate sensor on the market, tracking heart rate accurately and with great comfort. Using Movesense technology, the new Suunto Smart Sensor can be attached to the new Suunto heart rate belt, or to compatible sports apparel. When attached to the Suunto heart rate belt, the Suunto Smart Sensor now also let you record heart rate from your swims, by storing the HR data in the sensor, and when out of water, the data is transferred wirelessly to your Ambit3 watch or Suunto Movescount App.
