New to the forum here! Having used Movescount and Suunto since Ambit 2 gen timeframe, here are my thoughts for the app on iOS. Apologies if some are repeats of others’ thoughts.
What i like:
Overall I love the new, clean, quick interface compared to older movescount. Great job team!
Syncs much faster than with movescount.
Absolutely love the route creation tool and use it extensively - it’s probably my favourite tool. Arm and a leg above other platforms! I used mine together with Strava segments when searching out new routes. Heatmaps are nice, but could be bolder/stronger.
Sleep and activity tracking and syncing is nice to see.
Topo base maps are nice to have.
Issues or wishlist:
After latest update (May 2019), the app seems to work much slower when navigating menus or activities. Not sure if it’s server issue slowdown related or the app itself.
Under ‘share’ option, .fit export would be great (especially given the latest troubles)
Custom (more complex) interval workout creation to transfer to the 9 and other watches. For example, I want my workout to include a 10min. interval followed by a 90sec. rest, then 3x90sec. with 45sec. rest between. This would be helpful.
I am not seeing much difference and don’t fully understand the need for a main feed and my diary. Perhaps if I followed others this would make more sense on my end.
Leaderboard— have not used this yet.
There might be more but these are off the top of my head right now. Keep it up! (and pleeeeease keep that Strava connection healthy )
@Mi_chael I also thought that it is always a belt, change 2 in 1 year. Lately sensor too. HR remains frozen or watch stop receiving HR data. Relocating the battery on the fly sometimes helps, but it fails again and again. Today I opened repair ticket. I’m fed up
@josephkarl said in Disappointed Android users:
oid device has started lagging and the device becomes slow and many apps are getting affected with that and affecting the outlook app was one of them.
The phone might get slower due to one single app if this one is using huge amounts of CPU, but it’s impossible that other apps are directly affected in terms of they stop working or have crashes because of Suunto. Each app running on an Android phone acts as a single user in a multi-user Linux system. This means that the apps live in their own sandbox regarding security, performance, etc.
There is one pop-up when you install the SA asking you to allow the app to run in the background in order to provide a better service. If you don’t allow this (can also change it in the settings), the performance/battery of the phone will definitely not be affected although you might miss a couple of notifications.
@nigel-taylor said in New Android Diary Section:
Agree the diary is an improvement and seems good at first glance, but if I look at my activities in the equivalent section in SportsTracker then that is a LOT more functional and useful.
Do we know what the future of the diary is going to be? If it remains as the simple single list it’s going to be next to useless for monitoring progress and performance, if it gets the ability to search and filter by year and month etc as per SportsTracker, then it could be a solution that keeps me away from the web interface.
Anyone know? Or…is the Android GUI going to change from its SportsTracker roots and this is a spurious discussion?
i have just update to today’s 3.37.0 built.
An still nothing to filter by month or activities, etc… Or may I lost something.
I really prefered the first builds in term of diary informations.
I must admit, i am not using SA anymore, just test new things, but in fact did not find any new stuff
I am a good student, I upload my activities each time, but not more, if i need stats, I go to movescount web.
great stuff, i also was wondering iff they would upload all created routes of the movescount web into the suunto app, cause there is such a welth off tracks in there,
i found some old trailrunning races and routes of 30+ km’s, and all i have to do is upload them to my watch, for me that is the raw power of the suunto experience,
i also noticed that on the map there are campingsites, its just perfect to drop my car and set up basecamp!!!
after 2020 wil suunto shut down movescount or will it still excist but not be upgrading it anymore?
@jthomi My procedure is: unpair watch, uninstall MC app, install first SuuntoApp (beta), pair watch, synchronize. Then close app (multitask). Install MC app. Synchronize watch without pairing. And voila!! As a preventive measure, close the app from multitask before opening the second one. Both apss opened may cause a watch reset. I tried the process in inverted order starting with MC app and it did´t work for me
Activities synced to strava & training peaks show the time without pauses.
For example swimming in app the time is 1h 4min and in strava & TP 1h 7min. I had 3 minutes toilet break and I paused my suunto 9. This worked the right way when used movescont and the time matched.
And it happened for previous workouts toto (after the last update).
EDIT: In movescount you can see that those first two laps, which you can see in Strava, are not there
@marius-jacobsen-eggerud said in Unable to sync with movescount on my laptop:
@brad_olwin I see your point and S9 appeal to me as well. Just have to wait for a discount (from Suunto?) or I will have to wait until the watch is in stock at my local running store, where I have a fixed discount.
I am waiting for those codes will take a few
Suggestions for next level…
Being able to freely position the text filed
Zoom/pan the picture for best position
Placement of data to the right, left, top or bottom
Horizontal, vertical och square picture
