Suunto Ambit3 Run

$539, available later this month

Not everyone is a triathlete. So you may have no use for a Global Positioning System watch that tracks your cycling, swimming and skiing, in addition to running, activities.

If only running is your thing, Suunto's Ambit3 Run may be all you need.

The Ambit3 Run does without many of the functions built into its pricier Ambit3 cousins, such as the Sapphire ($1,399).

It connects to the Suunto Movescount app (iOS only) to help you plan your workouts and offers voice guidance during runs.

The Ambit3 Run comes in green, black or white.

Once the software is installed in both computers, you can drag and drop documents or copy and paste text between two Mac computers, two Windows computers or between a Mac and a Windows computer. This cable also enables you to share one keyboard and mouse between the two computers.
