For me, it was a little bit strange not to find a described feature on the site in the Suunto app (it’s really missing). So, after some time of searching, I decided to ask the community about it.
Sorry if I sounded somewhat crumpy, wasn’t my intention. R-R in the watch spec isn’t wrong, Suunto watches indeed record R-R intervals and also pass those along.
And in a way Movescount and Suunto App are providing the same lavel of R-R support, meaning that there’s no (valid) metric or chart, but both Movescount and Suunto App actually provide access to this data through activity export and sync, so you can still go through some HRV analysis with 3rd party tools (like Kubios) and services (like Runalyze).
That said, R-R samples collected during physical activity are not considered to be very useful, there are just too many variables. For analysing trends and current condition, measurements are usually taken at the same time of the day, when rested and without any external stressors.
@Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos@sartoric thank you guys. For me Suunto doesn’t have competition in sport monitoring. You can have data of near all and based on a lot of sport types. Adding few features like that in the SA (basicaly show more data already known by Suunto) could be a powerful entry level to the daily activity bands market, and a dangerous alternative too, for people who at this point doesn’t plan to buy a Suunto watch.
@Brad_Olwin tried to find som old pictures but that was before the digital cameras came… Easy and reliable watch that showed both altimeter and pressure. Did a lot of hiking and the altitude was always better than on my Garmin 12
Isn’t the min HR provided also indicating your fitness and health condition? I think it is and I’m using it. I don’t say it is the same but it is an indication. If there will be something like a 7-day graph to see a trend, that would help.
@dimitrios-kanellopoulos I would say that the intensity of the interval is controlled by a metric. This can be a scalar value or a range of two scalar values. Viewed this way, all work the same.
Put differently: people do intervals for a reason. For example, to get faster. In this example, the rationale is to go faster over a short period of time than you could over a long period of time. But what is faster? Listen to your body for the answer and correlate your feeling to a numeric value. Now that you have this value, you want your watch to assist you. So it would be nice if it told you if you are to slow (number too low) or to fast (number too high). And these conditions could be signaled visually, haptically or auditorily.
A) Partners pull from SA (Runanalyze etc
B) Suunto Cloud sends to a Partners (Strava TP etc)
For any option A or B a resync button would not help as you understand.
For option A) -> Resync button would send again the workout to the queue to be processed by our systems. Since the item is in the queue already and fails due to x,y,z reasons resync it would not help.
For options B) -> Partners are realiable for pulling the workout and thus, again the resync button would not offer any solution.
@sartoric in hiking, or in general actually, altitude for sure has to be taken into account in calorie estimation… But I don’t know what other physiological factors besides hr affect activity at altitude. (I mean the body struggles and spends more energy to function). And temperature… For example, If you are cold and barely walking your body is still spending a lot of energy to avoid hypothermia.
on the phone it’s easier as it is most likely in lockscreen during an activity. if the watch shows emergency info on homescreen first responders need to know or find out how to get to the homescreen and they have to have the idea of looking this up at all…
one spare field or my favourit: around all fields as a running circle would be easy to find I think. does anyone know how competitors do it?
normally I have my phone always with me (bike, ski, roadbike) give you the chance to carry the phone almost always. but running is more likely to go without the phone…
