Suunto's Ambit 3 Peak watch is able to provide all the functions required for Trek and Travel including GPS location, Altimeter, Barometer, Compass and Temperature.

Suunto says: The journey to your summit is what it's all about – whether it's a mountain or a personal best. The Suunto Ambit3 Peak is your ultimate GPS watch for sports and adventure. It guides you every step of the way, providing all you need to progress and stay safe on your quest. Connect your watch wirelessly to your iPhone and use the free Suunto Movescount App to adjust the watch on the go and visually enrich, relive and share your adventure. There is no better companion out there to make every move count.

Over the years I've settled on some core kit that I feel comfortable with when trekking in a foreign country, one of those bits of kit is an outdoor watch, and the key function that I tend to use (apart for the time functions of course) is an altimeter. When trekking in mountainous areas distance is often less important than altitude for figuring out where you are and how long its going to take to get to the next pass.

Knowing the temperature during the night can also be useful, by leaving the watch off my wrist I can get a spot temperature during the night which helps me decide what kit I need for future trips to remain warm and comfortable.

I have also used the GPS location function on a few occasions, most recently in Peru - there were two or three occasions when the path disappeared and I used the GPS location set to Latitude and Longitude to ensure I found the trail again. I've also used it a few times in the UK during white-outs and low visibility days.

Suunto watches are among the best available and whilst the user interface is sometimes less than intuitive, once you use it you soon get the hang of it. Suunto's Ambit 3 Peak Watch is able to perform all the functions required for trek and travel and the Altimeter is more advanced than the Suunto Core model as it uses GPS data as well as barometric data to provide a more accurate altitude.

The Ambit 3 Peak will also perform a range of functions related to training and high activity sports such as running/swimming/cycling and for these functions you need to buy a HR monitor which we don't stock.

The Ambit 3 Sport is for people engaged in outdoor sports, whereas the Ambit 3 Peak model is aimed at trek and travel of a more long term nature. The key functions available on both the Sport and Peak models are essentially the same, but the Peak has double the battery life and is more robust - for example it's water resistance rating is up to 100m compared with 50m for the Sport.
