In terms of the GPS:
If the memory is equivalent to 15 hours with 1 second samples, then:
60 seconds x 60 minutes x 15 hours = 54,000 samples
I have confirmed that it is possible to recharge the watch via a solar or battery charger (goal zero type), even when in use. This should give the GPS on 60 second samples a capacity to record 900 hours, equivalent to 37.5 days.
I would suggest to Suunto that in a future firmware update a 10 second GPS sample should be an option. This would give the possibility to log 6 continuos days (150 hours) with the proper portable charger.
In terms of "the other memory", I understand that heartbeat, EPOC, energy, VO2, respiration, R-R, altitude/pressure, temperature, and vertical speed are recorded together. If 10 sec samples last for 50 hours, then, an option, could be to select which of all this data is recorded and then extend the memory capacity to more hours of fewer elements.

In the Suunto Ambit the memory capacity is more or less the same as the battery life. If you use the 1 second GPS interval, the recorded log can be apr. 15 hours, using the 60 second interval it can be about 50 hours. If the battery runs out while recording a log, the Ambit will save the exercise, but unfortunately you cannot continue to save the same exercise after you start charging the battery.
