Suunto Ambit 3 Peak – First Look

We love tech here at Unsponsored HQ and when we can combine that love with the great outdoors it gives us a warm glow inside.

The GPS of choice up until very recently was a Garmin Foretrex 401 (as favoured by many members of the armed forces). It did its job well but I didn’t use a great deal of its features apart from getting a GPS location fix when things got a bit sticky. Although it did what I needed it to do technology has moved on and it’s always great to have an excuse to upgrade some tech.

After a couple of recommendations a Suunto Ambit 3 Peak was purchased.

Just like the original the Petzl Vertigo has been primarily designed for ease of clipping in with the added bonus of having a locking key gate. The new construction has shaved off 2 grams.
