Thanks @margusl, come to think of it … my pedal power meter also supports both and I should be good by just buying an ANT+ dongle for my PC and off to the races.
Now it’s just a matter of testing out how good my trainer plays with Zwift. I will report back when I am able to ride again.
@sartoric yes I am aware how target zones work and use whenever I can, but right now they are pretty much useless if you want structured workouts and can only do simple repeated on/off intervals at same levels. I am talking about being notified of what zone you are in during workouts … something like 5 beeps or vibrations for zone 5, 4 for zone 4 and so on.
For a use case take an example of a very simple cycling interval workout:
3 min warm-up
3 x (3 min at tempo 70-80% FTP @ 90 rpm / 5 min at sweet-spot 80-95% FTP @ 60 rpm)
4 x (2 min at tempo 70-80% FTP @ 90 rpm / 1 min full 100% FTP @ 60 rpm)
3 min cool-down
(FTP = functional threshold power)
This is the type of thing we still can’t set up on the watch to follow and would be quite dangerous to do outside without the audio/vibration feedback from the watch just to check on the screen which power zone you are actually in. This is just one of many examples.
Also this is handy for HR zones when climbing on a bike so you don’t overshoot and blow out as we say - there are always sections on a course you know you can push full gas because there is a mellow section afterwards to recover and know what zone to stay in to recover for the next push … a lot of zone jumping so a simple “target zone warning” won’t cut it. Constantly looking down at the watch on the handlebars is often times dangerous.
But yes, I get it … not many people use this and it is not main stream enough to implement, even tho other companies do it.
I up this topic, because I had à use case yesterday where this feature would have been useful.
I have the route of à treck (done with SA 😉) , but I needed to go to another point.
I Could have stopped my activity, created à New route and synced it with watch, but I would have preffered being able to create a POI (Waypoint) on the go 😁
@Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos absolutely, and it’s much better integrated (it was mentioned in a discussion with @Brad_Olwin few days ago). The only downside is having to manually set your zones in the watch, but at least for me zone changing does not happen that often so I don’t mind.
@Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos - 6 apnea or 6 times to toilet?
If 6 apnea per hour - that is well within limits for good sleep (other factors depending i.e. duration).
If 6 times to toilet - you have a problem and need to discuss with doctor asap. May not be sleep apnea, could be other issues, but also could be it. You need to get into a sleep clinic asap if no other underlying condition.
It sounds more like we need some sort of multi-stage or continuous activity which you can actually interrupt and then continue or some sort of group that all activities registered after the group tracking is enabled will fall into one bag. In diary it would be seen as one activity but it could be open and see all of it separately or merged together. To be honest, it’s not just a multi-day but sometimes I want to stop tracking the activity when I’m taking a longer break. Usually, for 30-60 min break, I just pause the watch but this doesn’t turn off GPS and seems to be draining the battery more ( and I can’t use the watch just as a watch 😉 ). The continuous activity would solve this problem.
Or simplest solution, uploading FIT or TCX files which contain the whole activity. As it has been said before, the merging can be done using third-parties ( this will include merging all the data like HR, GPS etc. ) however I don’t see a way to log activity manually by uploading the file.
Two solutions I see :
Enable multiple photo selection with local picture manager app in the phone (currently this option is only one by one photo)
in addition to my current issue and 4.33 version for not allowing me to upload more than 2 photos at once, i would like to refresh this feature request :
@Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos could it be technically feasible to enable SA import multiple photos but using other picture managers in my smartphone for multiple selection ? so that we can benefit from each one filtering features, and not just file modification date sorting 😉
3°) For me, the ascent or descent data are the basic data of an activity I find it inconceivable that there is no way to add them.
Moreover, sometimes these data recorded by the watch are unreliable and we don’t even have the possibility to edit/correct them in SA, which is also unbelievable for me.
Exceptional explanation! A change in this sense is also essential for me
My comment was a bit snarky, but totally a joke, not meant to offend.
In all seriousness, yea it’d be nice to see your exact watch. But in the grand scheme of the entire Suunto platform right now, I’d prefer to see it all work and be full featured on the functionality front. And it’s FAR from it at this point.
Was there a fix or solution on this issue@Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos @snowleopard@Chris1989 ? I need daily steps to sync to Apple Health for an insurance policy. Sorry old thread I know - hopefully means a solution found, if so please can someone share.
