Tac Apps – Suunto Releases Apps for Ambit GPS Watch

With Suunto‘s 2.0 firmware update to its Ambit GPS watch, users can use a web-based interface in the Suunto App Zone to develop their own apps. In addition to creating their own from scratch users can also search for apps created byothers and even tweak them for further customization.

However, I feel that the term “App” is a bit of a reach. They are really more like widgets in that they are pretty rudimentary, but once again, you get some personalization here. Even then, there’s one more thing you’ll want to know. You can only install one at a time. You’ll just need to make sure it’s the right one for what you have going on.

Here’s one just for fun to give you an idea of what’s going on. The “Beers burned off” app calculates how many beers can you safely take after the training without weight gain.

For a full list of currently available Apps go to the Suunto App Zone in the Get Stuff section on Movescount.com.
