GearScout: Suunto tortures early-adopter Ambit owners; Releases Ambit 2.

Suunto just announced the launch of the Ambit 2 and Ambit 2s. These new models split the Ambit series by providing feature sets that focus on athletic endeavors or backcountry pursuits.

“The Ambit received tremendously positive responses from consumers last year,” says Suunto president, Mikko Moilanen Moilanen. “To meet the needs of performance sports-oriented users even better, we felt that a lighter, slimmer GPS with more sports-specific features was needed to complement the Ambit family.
