I have the ambit! It's brilliant I often use it as a normal watch too as the battery lasts for ages and it's not too big

altimeter? i like these words..i want an altimeter fingy

slaneuk: so, it doesn't turn off when you connect it to the battery pack? That's really, really useful information.

I have small wrists so have to wear it over a wristband anyway, so shouldn't be worried by the cradle.

I suppose I can call NDW50 and SDW50 training runs for the Lakeland 50.

The altimeter is great I walk up and down the stairs at work and it shows a little graph of the height change! I'm sure I'll get bored of it one day... Maybe

Sounds awesome Touie, I have been looking at the ambit too.

Debra - not seen it turn off when I add a pack. The more annoying thing I find is if I put the thing on to charge day to day and someone switches off the plug, the damn thing turns on and merrily proceeds to drain the battery down!

Sooooo ...it aint all its cracked up to be or supadupa after all then Slaneuk?

01/11/2012 at 17:05

slaneuk. That's great. Now I just need to find a battery charger pack into which I can plug the USB lead... The little Duracell one someone mentioned earlier http://www.amazon.co.uk/Duracell-PPS1-mini-USB-Connectors-Batteries/dp/B001FC49TK/ref=pd_sim_ce_6 looks good but I'm not sure about the connection - the far end of the cradle for the 310 (the end that plugs into the plug, normally) is a standard USB - anyone know if that Duracell one has a USB connection? Or knows of one that does?

Sympathies about the "drains if plug switched off" problem - and thanks for the warning!
