    I have a lime colored Suunto 2S w/ heart rate strap i would like to sell. It works great, just updated it to the newest firmware 2.0.9
    (see this site for update information – http://d1c229iib3zm7m.cloudfront.net/release_notes/SuuntoAmbit2S_ReleaseNotes.txt)

    no scuffs or damage to the face, strap is in perfect shape. Comes with the heart rate strap and the alligator clip USB cable for charging,syncing, and updating. This is the S model, so the only differnce from the S and the regular model is battery size (which makes it much thinner/lighter) and does not have a barometric/temp sensor (uses GPS to find altitude, similar to most gps units). I have found wrist mounted temp sensors do not work anyways, so that isn't an issue.

    How's the battery life?

    Battery life of the S model is half of the standard model because it was made to be slimmer and lighter. Ambit 2S has 240 mAh battery, and Ambit 2 has 480 mAh battery. I have found that what Suunto's estimates are accurate.

    ~14 days in regular time mode
    ~25 hours of GPS recording in 60s interval mode
    ~12 hours of GPS recording in 5s interval mode
    ~8 hours of GPS recording in 1s interval mode

    All of these interval modes are customizable in Suunto's Movescount online synchronization. I find for my hikes the 60s mode is plenty, but i use the 1 second mode when running and short hikes. I've used the 10s mode when i do a day hike that i want very accurate results from that i might run out of battery with the 1s mode, but thats unusual.

    For hikes where i think i'll be tracking more than 25 hours (about 2 days worth of hiking ~12 hour days), i'll bring a Guide10 battery pack with some freshly charged NiMH batteries, and the USB/alligator clip cable, and charge it while i'm in camp every night just to make sure. If you figure that you're only charging 240 mAh, you'll find that you have multiple charges from just a single AA, and a guide 10 will keep you running for weeks.

    Its very accurate for tracking, and the few times i've used it for navigating, it was spot on.

    Thanks for the info, very tempting. I would do it if I could find a good home for my casio PRG270-1.

    I'll see what I can do.

    Thanks.
