Suunto Ambit 2 Sapphire Has A Bomb Proof Sapphire Crystal, It's Super Rugged

This GPS watch is so rugged it's almost bombproof and the fact that Suunto had the guts to put the crystal flush with the bezel tells you just how confident they are in the toughness of their thick Sapphire crystal.

The Suunto Ambit 2 Sapphire is the most rugged GPS watch ever created according to the Heart Rate Watch Company.

"This GPS watch is so rugged it's almost bombproof and the fact that Suunto had the guts to put the crystal flush with the bezel tells you just how confident they are in the toughness of their thick Sapphire crystal," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "This watch weighs in at 90 grams so it is a bit heavy for running, but great for anything else."

Who It's Made For

Military personnel, mountain climbers, mountain bikers, kayakers, cyclists or anyone who requires a super tough watch that can take a beating and lose no functionality. "This is the toughest GPS watch I've ever seen and we test almost all of them," says Squire.

Who It Is Not Made For

"I really don't think this watch works well for distance running, it just has too heavy of a swing weight, but for just about everything other than running it is fine," says Squire.

Every Metric, Weather and Navigation Feature Imaginable

The Suunto Ambit 2 Sapphire offers trackback, power on the bike, weather features and over 1,000 apps to choose from. "You can run five apps on the watch concurrently, as opposed to just one for the original Ambit, thanks to the memory upgrade," says Squire.

This is the type of watch that, outside of battery replacements, will likely last a decade or more says Squire. "If you are looking for tough with all the heart rate, speed, distance and navigation data you can use then this is your watch," says Squire.
