We vigorously tested five GPS computers to find which one can take your training to the next level.

Suunto Ambit


Standout: Most reliable GPS signal.

Weakness: No multisport mode.

Equally suited to your daily workout or a trek in the Himalayas, the Ambit is the best bet for more adventurous multisport athletes. It’s fully equipped for backcountry use, offering the quickest and most reliable satellite connections, never once losing touch during runs through dense forest. The user-friendly online training site makes your data easy to review and share. Ambit lacks multisport mode, so it is best saved for training and wilderness adventures instead of race day.

Rock it: If you want precise training details but still race by feel.
