I use strava to keep track of wear of my shoes and bike. If suunto app had ability to track gear it would be great. At least list of shoes, bikes, ski equipment etc. Ability to retire equipment. Ability to choose default equipmen for specific sport mode. Ability to edit equipment after activity was recorded. And i think i will drop strava than. But because it is coupled with sports tracker i think it keep sunto back with this features. I don’t understand why they dropped movescount. It was suunto platform, if was great. It was easy to expand for new feature because it was they own service. Now suunto app/sports tracker doesn’t bring anything new and i thing suunto can’t do modifications as easy as it was with own platform. Movescount was best!
I see expected splash of topics from disappointed users after official announcement of Movescount retirement. I still think that roadmap has to be created to make all users to know what is happening with Suunto app. Now you cannot say that you are not pushing users to use Suunto app
I want to note that there are currently two threads on the Suunto app feature request forum dedicated Interval workout functionality - essential to any athlete looking to improve their performance. These thread were started one year and five months ago, respectively. Presently, there is no good way for the 9 (the watch I have) or the Spartan series to guide athletes through these workouts. And yet, this functionality that is already in place for the Ambit series. It exists on most other manufacturers’ devices as well. (Certainly those in the Spartan series’s price range.)
The individuals who post on that site are dedicated Suunto users…your biggest fans. I appreciate Suunto’s work to integrate Strava. I am fond of the interval data embedded in the description of activities when I use the (limited) interval features on my 9. However, other manufacturers’ devices automatically create laps based on these intervals and this information is also sent. This sort of functionality would be a welcome addition, but only a first step towards incorporating the critical functionality described above (and requested by so many).
I respect the inclination to work meticulously, and to avoid over promising. But, I can’t see how keeping your most fervent fans in the dark for a year is the best strategy.
@Brent-Rodriguez For info I have a garmin FR235 and the livetracking is always working flawlessly. The lack of livetracking on suunto 9 is what prevents me to go to suunto.
I do use the live location function of Whatsapp or Telegram and it also work flawlessly, in the moment you need your phone, in my opinion, is not a must or can’t be a limitation to buy or not a watch, but as said this is my opinion.
I have one personal problem with this attitude. I trusted to suunto brand and i had all my data at suunto own site movescount. Now when i want to zoom some graph or do some better analysis i need to give my data to some third party side. It many case this mean even location of my home address just because many activities will start at my home. And this attitude bring another problem as synchronization only happens after upload. When after that i add description, title, photos to my activity. It is not transfered to 3rd party apps usually. So i need to do it multiple times in every app if i want my data to be consistent.
At least on iOS suunto app doesn’t allow to zoom graphs. And even if they allow it in future. On such small screen as mobile device it is almost useless. Suunto app is great for synchronisation, quick adjustements etc. But it is not suitable for analysis or some deep review of activities.
Sports-tracker allows to browse data from suunto app but it is not officialy supported if i understand correctly. And compared to movescount it is more buggy, with less features.
Good day! With despair I heard the news about MC will be discontinued. After years of using this very practical program for both our Ambit 3 Peak and Suunto 9. As my old Ambit 3 doesnt like wind at all (obviously!) the total ascent was sometimes completely wrong and I could change in the MC app everything I wanted. I also loved to export my moves as .gpx and import them into Google Earth as for mountaineers it is always brilliant to see the track in 3D.
Also - after having done the synchronisation between SA and MC once…i do not seem to be able to move-or synchronize-one move i have corrected in MC to the SA.
And why is it not possible to see all your personal data - like ascent/descent - time - …like the setting of the activity filter in MC??? for every single sport??? Like…i want to see how many vertical metres have I done mountaineering/skitouring/hiking…etc?
As long as those features are not working in SA…I would call the SA just a nice gimmick I could easily live without!!
Please pardon my english - no native speaker.
Maybe there is the one or other solution other users could help me with … as the Q&A are mostely useless.
Old topic, but found it while searching to see if anyone else had brought it up. Slept with my SSU last night and got a sleep time that was roughly 1 1/2 hours to short. Was surprised to see that there was no way of editing the times, or even the ability to delete. So now I have an incorrect sleep time that I can’t do anything about. The ability to edit the start and end times would be very usefull.
yes it is and you can easily connect it to SA.
I don’t pay Strava, I’ve decided for now to contribute a coffee to the creator of QS since I prefer to support small and innovative companies over big players 🙂
