Sport modes are your way to record exercises and other activities with your Suunto Ambit3 Vertical. For any activity, you can select a sport mode from the set of predefined sport modes that came with your watch. If you cannot find a suitable sport mode, create your own custom sport modes through Movescount and Suunto Movescount App.
Different information is shown on the displays during exercise depending on the sport mode. The selected sport mode also affects exercise settings, such as heart rate limits and autolap distance.
In Movescount you can create custom sport modes, edit the predefined sport modes, delete sport modes, or simply hide them so that they are not shown in your exercise menu (see Starting an exercise).
Custom sport modes
A custom sport mode can contain 1 to 8 different sport mode displays. You can choose which data appears on each display from a comprehensive list. You can customize, for example, sports-specific heart rate limits, what PODs to search for, or the recording interval to optimize accuracy and battery duration.
Any sport mode with GPS activated can also use the Quick Navigation option. By default, this option is off. When you select POI or Route, you get a pop-up list of the POIs or routes you have defined in your watch at the start of your exercise.
You can transfer up to 10 different sport modes created in Movescount to your Suunto Ambit3 Vertical.
