    Hi,
    Sorry to hijack this thread, but I'm also looking for a new GPS watch, with a long battery life to cover ultras.
    I am considering the Suunto Ambit 3 Peak, for a proven budget option, but interested that Mark G comment is to avoid older Suunto models.

    Any other suggestions of previous years models that could do the job around the 150 pound mark?
    Many thanks

    I've recently bought a Garmin Instinct (bought for £220 but current price is around £270) as it had breadcrumb navigation following a gpx trail. It also has some cool features such as an in-built compass. I've only used it on a 31 mile 6 1/2 hr ultra (Punkpanther Welcome Way) and there was loads of battery life left after that (Garmin claims 16hrs). I had the optical heart rate turned on all the time & if you disable that then you will extend the battery life as well. DC Rainmaker has done a good review (https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2018/10/...th-review.html)

    After personal use and good user experience, I can suggest you to purchase the smart products from https://netgears.support/netgear-genie-supportand also get home services for device issues.

    I've just bought a Suunto Ambit 3 Vertical from sports pursuit for 147. I'm aware that there are some problems with the movescount app but at that price I was happy to take a punt. I've never used GPS watch before so it's all new to me.
