Suunto Ambit, soon with free apps

I haven't been writing for a while, I sold the GPS pod since I was mostly using my iPhone to log my runs and rides. I still have my T3C (but my wife are using it now), but this summer I bought the Ambit, and I really like it.
It has all you need for mapping, and is more like a T6C. Yesterday Suunto has announced that it will allow people to really customize it them-self with a firmware upgrade coming in November:

When looking at my last post in 2009 about the programmable watch prototype from Texas, it seems like the Ambit will be like that platform (but better hardware).

What do you think, is the Ambit the first sports watch with upgradeable firmware?
