I mostly like the Ambit, with one major drawback: in order to download any of the activities from the watch, you need to be connected to the internet. It does work standalone at all. Other than that, I really like the fact that the watch has built in acceleromaters, so if it loses sight of GPS the track doesn't jump around all over the place.

There is a USB port, which is the charger/data transfer port. It transfers data via a computer connection, but the computer has to be connected to the internet in order to do anything with the data from runs. This has been a problem, as they have had some outages with the Movescount website which have lasted for several days, which means that users haven't been able to access their data for several days. It does seem like a realy strange way to have users access their data.
