Fits original Ambit and Ambit 2.
The Suunto Ambit Silver Strap is the strap that comes on the Silver Ambit and Ambit 2 watch, though it can be fitted to any original Ambit or Ambit 2. It is a black strap with a silver buckle.
This strap kit includes the tiny nuts and bolts that hold the strap on. To fit the strap you will need a #6 Torx Bit which is NOT included with the strap.
This Ambit / Ambit 2 strap has different strap screws than the Ambit 2S and Ambit 2R, this strap is only compatible with the Ambit and Ambit2 watches.
Customer Reviews of Suunto Ambit and Ambit 2 strap.
Great quality genuine item. My previous strap started to break and I made the mistake of ordering a strap from elsewhere, which wasn't genuine. That was sent back and I ordered a genuine one from Facewest. It came with all the nuts and bolts, and loctite. Excellent service, well pleased!
Replacement strap seems fine but low score given as;
- 1/ It shouldnt need replaced if a decent product in the first place
- 2/ Very expensive
- 3/ Torx tool not supplied to replace it so you have to buy one or get a jeweller to fit it!
Excellent service from Facewest, so score is solely for Suunto.
These are good quality and easy to fit.This us the second one I have bought over the years. I did buy a cheap imitation which was a waste of money.
Strap seems fine with a better buckle on previous one - which caused the strap to break on the original one. Even so very expensive for what it is. Only issue being obtaining a torx size 6 screwdriver - difficult to get hold of as postage seemed to be more expensive than the tool - eventually had to buy a phone kit £5+ inc postage.I think suunto should provide the screwdriver.Also Suunto should provide a much better quality strap in the first place on this value of watch.The watch itself is brilliant which I use for running, hillwalking, cycling.
I hope the new strap lasts a bit longer than the last one!!Not too hopeful when looking at other reviews.
After the original strap had broken, i searched for a replacement strap and found the best offer available with facewest.co.uk, being in fact Ã‚Â£10 cheaper than the same product on the suunto store.
Thanks to the explanation on facewest website, i managed to anticipate in getting the right screwdriver to replace the wristband as per instructions. It took just a few minutes without any issues, my suunto ambit lookas like new again.
Faultless service from facewest: quick delivery.BUT...
Strap is rubbish : cracked after 2- 3 years of not particularly hard service. Is it poor technical competence with the choice of an inappropriate material or is it programmed obsolescence?
AND there are 4 bolts and nuts to attach the strap to the watch: ONE NUT (on the original strap) WAS MISSING!!!I do not think I'll buy another Suunto.
This was to replace the strap on my trusty Ambit which has served me well over the past years, the kit included the new strap and all the relevant screws needed to replace the strap, even some Locktite for securing the screws, the only extra bit I had to purchase was a screwdriver, a Torx T6, as I hand't one small enough, apart from that very easy to replace, only took 5 minutes to complete and my trusty Ambit is like new again, ready for the next adventure.
The ambit2 strap I purchased will be used as a spare, it's well made with all the parts required to fit it, it even includes a bottle of locktite to complete the fitting. It's a shame it didn't come with a Torx6 driver but that's a minor niggle. The finish is fine and being oem is as good as the original
The product is perfect and great that they supply glue and all the screws etc. One issue I had was that it was a nightmare trying to get a Torx screw at this size. When I did, it was only Ã‚Â£1.00 from Maplin, I think it would be helpful to include this... Thanks
