@peringmar I think that “interted height graph” is actually my heart rate, not altitude. High at the beginning and end because you have to get out of the boat and back in with about 30 kg of gear hanging off you, while clad in full body 3mm wetsuit in 35°C temperature.
Yes it’s doing the same thing, but it’s intended for something different, like people who has a bike computer from garmin, and a watch from garmin and what not…
What i was originally talking about was simple strava sync, that garmin does flawlessly, as garmin connect sends AND recieves workout data to strava.
Suunto ONLY sends, and thus calendar in suunto remain empty my entire winter.
Unless you actually pay for a service, or transfers everything manually after every ride.
This still does not fix my issue with my watch not being synced to the Suunto APP, the watch only sends workout data, so the watch acts more like an ANT+ HR/GPS device than anything else.
@Knigge-Bogge I do not think this will happen as it limits flexibility as I stated before. We are now close to what we had with the Ambit but with significantly more flexibility by choosing partners. I think it might be difficult and time consuming to determine calendar inputs for all connected partners on the Suunto side.
@Jamie-BG I definitely agree that a sleep mat is likely to be more accurate than a wrist device, and it’s really nice not to have to wear anything on my wrist when sleeping.
However, once this pandemic is over and we all start travelling again, it would be nice to be able to use my watch to track my sleep when not at home.
In fact, if my watch becomes good enough I may switch from the map completely, as I would prefer to have all of my data in one place, rather than jumping between multiple apps (just need the Suunto App to link with my wi-fi scales next).
If you happen to have an IOS device, just enable BT on phone and watch, music control on watch and press play. This will start Music app on iphone and play the first song in the cue. That’s how I find my phone.
In certain cases, it is even better than proper ‘find my phone’ because it works also if you have the phone in silent mode.
Could not reproduce the same on my Samsung-Android tough.
I whish SUUNTO to finally implement 'find my phone and multiple alarms, as it is in Garmins and Coros.
I know I can live without, but paying more to get less is somehow annoying. Especially these days when we see suunto going same direction as competitors in term of dev cycle and bugs introduction.
I was used to get less functions and very little problems with suunto. Now I am getting less function and even more problems than I have experienced with Garmin (which were unacceptable for me)
I hope this transition phase will soon come to an end for suunto.
Love for the brand has limits.
As this post seems waken up, me too 😊.
It is not that often, but I still need sometimes mass changes, and fortunetly I can do it with my android rooted phone and sql database statements.
Really not convenient and not accessible to anyone, but it works for some type of mass changes.
It lacks an UI, integration in SA, controls not to change silly data, etc 😂.
It comes also to another idea (maybe already raised) : what about SA plug-ins? Maybe some skilled coders with official Suunto “rules”, could enable extra features that Suunto could consider but not implement (priorities, etc…).
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.
