Suunto Ambit3 Sport User Guide - 2.5

Multisport training

You can use Suunto Ambit3 Sport for multisport training, easily switching between different sport modes (see Sport modes) while exercising and viewing sport-specific data during your exercise and in the log summary.

You can change the sport manually during the exercise, or create a multisport mode to change sports in a specific order such as for a triathlon.

Switching sport modes manually

Suunto Ambit3 Sport allows you to switch to another sport mode during exercise without having to stop recording. All the sport modes you have used during the exercise are included in the log.

To switch the sport mode manually during exercise:

  1. While you are recording your exercise, keep Back Lap pressed to access the sport modes.
  2. Scroll the list of sport mode options with Start Stop or Light Lock.
  3. Select a suitable sport mode with Next. Suunto Ambit3 Sport continues recording the log and the data for the selected sport mode.
