The Ambit 2S Sport Watch

suunto-ambit2-s-white-hr-l-1Suunto has provided Team Sedna with Ambit 2S GPS fitness watches to track our journey through the Arctic. These advanced devices are used by athletes around the world to track their fitness, journeys and adventures. This particular version of the Ambit is specially designed to fit women’s narrower wrists yet provides full features of the watch. The Ambit has become an open source craze among computer savvy athletes. The data can be repurpose using community shared apps. Clever programmers have created apps such as a cupcake counter, letting a runner know how many cupcakes they have burned off. Other more serious apps help swimmers, triathletes, cyclists plan their training for events and life goals.

Sedna swimmers will gather heart rate data, GPS location, speed and duration in the water. We’ll be using the movescount.com website to log date and shout it out to the world.

Route Planning

Ambit 2S and Movescount.com

SEDNAGoogleEarthI have been playing with my Suunto Ambit 2S and Movescount.com to look ahead at my route for the next month. Using the tools in Movescount, I created a route and saved it as a .kml file. In Google Earth I could open the file and then view the full route. It looks like I will have over 15,000 km of travel ahead. That may seem like quite a bit, but considering I completed almost 7,000 on a bicycle last summer, it should be a piece of cake! Planes, cars, boats, underwater scooters and swimming will make up this incredible journey. I will be blogging regularly and posting as soon as the internet allows! Adventures ahead!

Team Sedna to Use Suunto Ambit 2S

Suunto has provided the Sedna EPIC Expedition team members with Ambit 2S sport watches. These cool devices were the first GPS watches to combine cutting edge outdoor and training features with thousands of sports apps that can be downloaded and activated by the user. This particular model was specially designed to fit women’s slim wrists, making it comfortable and easy to use as a traditional watch too. This product is platform built to bring your dreams to life. The raw data contains endless possibilities for use with custom apps. For our project, we’ll use the GPS feature to track our journey and post daily updates about the continuing relay swims we conduct on the project. We’ll also be gathering interesting data on heart rate in this challenging environment.
