When Is the Suunto Ambit4 Release Date?

WHEN is the next Suunto Ambit – the Ambit4 – release date?

The official Suunto website is publishing “Last Minute Deals” on Suunto Ambit2 watches from the middle of this month.

Does that mean the Suunto Ambit4 GPS Sports Watches are to be released any day now?

There has been no date published from what I can find ANYWHERE online. There is speculation about the new Ambits HERE, but nothing definitive yet.

One thing is for sure, there is little agreement on the myriad options Suunto could choose to add to this new watch. There are dozens of ways it could go – and it will come down to a judgement call that best aligns with what people who have been buying their watches all along – want this time.

Personally, I’d like a number of changes. By far the biggest and most meaningful changes to implement with the new Ambit4 line would be:

  1. A bigger display so I can actually read the data while I’m running.
  2. Better contrast display – again, so I can actually read it while I’m running.
  3. Longer battery life. Like double. Add another compartment to the top of the watch like the GPS on the bottom, and fill it with battery and we’re good to go.

What are the ESSENTIAL AMBIT4 CHANGES you want to see in the next iteration?

Pushing Yourself During Exercise!

This bears repeating… I just had a girl write me a couple times as she read each post in this series – loving it.

This was some of my best writing ever in my life – and I hoped more people would see it and use it. I really looked inside as I ran and exercised to see – what is going on? Why is running so fun to me – while it sucks for so many people? Why am I able to push myself consistently – whatever exercise I’m doing?

My Pushing Yourself Series Covers:

1. Getting Out the Door to Exercise!
2. Visual Imagery!
3. Shaming Yourself!
4. Positive Self Talk!
5. Delay of Gratification!
6. Coaching Yourself!
7. Competition!

Yesterday I had the privilege of climbing a mountain – 500m high – with a friend that is 71 years old. This guy is kicking serious ass at his age. He is in remarkable condition. He has climbed this mountain in under one hour before – to the top. That’s flying. I have done it in an hour or a little less – but, I did it at 43 yrs. old.

I’m considering writing a book on this guy – I have to ask him if he’d go for the idea.

Here’s a story… One time after not having breakfast, or water or anything – he decided to climb a local mountain’s steps. There’s a Buddhist temple at the top and he goes often. He climbed it once… twice… three times, and then a fourth time. Within three hours. Oh – each time is 1,237 steps. It was 90+ degrees F that day. He did it in the heat of the day from 2 pm. to 5 pm. The guy is an animal. He definitely has a drive and dedication to fitness that is unmatched by anyone over 60 that I ever knew – and I’ve known a LOT of exercisers over 60!

Anyway – hope that pushing yourself series helps you. I’ll let you know about the book coming out about “Alfred – the legend…” I might call it – “Kicking Ass at 71”. LOL.
