Here comes (or there goes) the sun

Running in sunlight is nice, all the more so when the days are cold and short. But getting out during daylight hours isn’t always possible, especially as the days in the Northern Hemisphere are getting shorter and the darkness is creeping in.

Outdoor exercise at night, though, has its own unique charm. So, it helps to have some guidance before you head out on whether you’ll be able to keep your sunglasses on or will need a headlamp to guide you home. Or, if running through the night is your thing, what time you’ll be able to see the sunrise.

Sunrise/Sunset AppChecking sunrise and sunset times is a piece of cake on any Ambit watch. Ambit2 users can simply switch to the alti/baro display and change the view to display the sunrise and sunset time for the current date and position. 

Ambit2 S and Ambit users can download the handy Sunrise/Sunset app to keep track of the sun with an easy at-a-glance countdown. The app also works on Ambit2. For sports like ultramarathon running, you can add the app to your "running" or "ultra" exercise mode to display a countdown to the next sunrise or sunset.

Before you head out, you can use the custom/exercise modes to create a "Sun" or "Environment" mode and set it to show the current time and sunrise/sunset time. Once activated, and having got a location fix, you’ll be able to see the current time and the time to the sunset or sunrise at a glance.

Whether you run in the daytime or at night, stay safe and have fun!
