I really like the latest update and the ability to see intervals. However, I ran 3 different sets of intervals (2 x 100m, 5 x 1 mile, and 2 x 100). The only intervals that show is my last set of 100m.
With the app I cannot select specific sections of my run to get the statistics for the mile intervals like I can in Movescount (unless I’m missing something). This is what’s keeping me from making the total transition.
@Michal-Orlík @NickK I am a developer for about 23 years now.
I moved from assembly to all modern web and modern native langs for mobile/desktop platforms.
I actually made an activity processing app based on JS/and binary decoding with JS and no server behind only a real-time DB platform that I wrote a DB abstraction upon it.
I worked on SVG parsing Chart engines to increase speed.
@Michal-Orlík there are limitations on what Electron or JS apps can do. Regarding the:
if used correctly you can save a lot of server cycles instead of loading full html page over and over again, with e.g. php, python or whatever. Not to mention more dynamic approach for viewing data.
That is by far not true. Static content is served by CDNS and if you compare it to app content the app is the static content. There will always be calls to the backend such as getWorkoutDetails. Keep in mind that server processing is needed even lightweight in most approaches to enrich with META data.
I will say this again. HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. See that TEXT there?
Over the Web, Web2 or any other versions, there have been a lot of endevours to port GPU rendering (OpenGL etc), Assembly code (what todo with dat). There have been also better langs to run on a browser, debatable, Dart for example.
But do you know what? Here is the deal:
I challenge you both to provide a library that encodes or decodes a binary fit file with just the browser. I don’t ask you to code it, but just give me a github link or project link that works.
Short answer there is only one, mainly maintained/written by reverse engineering the FIT protocol.
So yeah there is a solution. You add a server there in Java/PHP/Python etc todo that task for you. You add another dependency etc. Why? You think about it. Dependencies break atomic operations. There is a saying that says:
Every problem can be solved by adding another layer of abstraction except the problem of too many abstractions.
The modern web is an onion of abstractions and dependencies that grows. Adoption of native elements such as open GL and most important data processing is not adopted at all. And ELECTRON is not the best in town. Suunto link is electron btw.
FYI I can link raw data of the watches and what the apps process. We are talking about a 60h activities that each seconds contains 3 floats for each data stream (HR pressure, ABS pressure etc) if you think that this can be easily done with JS as oposed to other math libs or native libs, oh well…
I am not arguing on what SA or a web of SA should do or be written at. It could have been an HTML page as well. Right? But to guide the web as the modern desktop, thanks Ill pass.
P.S. 5G is not medically “ack” from many health organizations nor is it something that will speed up so many things. Its mainly advertised for Gaming, VR etc. I strongly suggest to ready carefully about its history and health implications before you go bashing all about it.
5G is about mobile devices and in the conversion we talk about desktop appliances. 5G improves latency yes but the bandwidth so far for compressed data has not been the main issue. A 1h run is 100Kb or less file. Get it on 4G to 5G won’t revolutionalize the world.

Heres my reaction to the same problem when first setting up my Ambit3 with SA
I totally underestimated just how long it was going to take to sync from my watch 60+ moves. In the end it took many hours. I had to wear my watch throughout the day at work so that it wouldn’t time-out. I also plugged in my iphone and turned off time-out in the display setting.
If I was to start again I’d would probably follow these steps
Make sure all moves are synced first to Movescount
Delete all moves on the watch before first sync (removing the need to sync all previous moves)
Continue to use Moveslink on the PC until SAs out of beta. As back up
Just back from a run this morning, now all previous moves are synced this new one took only a few minutes or so
@moe67er said in Share your experience with the Suunto app here!:
uploading programs to the watch --> not implemented (I hardly/never used it in my Ambit)
I use it a lot (for Ambit 3).
@cosmecosta said in [Share your experience with the Suunto app here!]
your Suunto watch is the Ambit 3, which, if I am not mistaken,only supported for the Suunto App in Beta mode
You are mistaken (at least what relates to iOS app), basic support of Ambit 3 is since v. 1.5.0 (released cca 01/2019). The truth is that it is just “basic support”. But since 01/2019 I do not see any progress in further support of Ambit 3, so I can understand, that some customers are getting frustrated. I am still waiting patiently - I use Movescount (web) and SA (mobile - in beta mode) simultaneosly, so I do not feel limited at this moment. However I would like to see more progress in Ambit 3 implememtation…
OT: I was decided to switch to Polar (I like Polar Flow), however I found out, that Polar makes new Vantage in China, and I want to support companies which produces goods in Europe. So I am still supporting Suunto. I hope they will hard during next months so their app is fully usable even for Ambit 3.
@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.
The main solution of this topic works very well.
I use SA on my XIAOMI MI8 (Android). And I create my routes on MC in order to have them in the most compatible format possible with SA. I import all my routes into MC for those I do not create personally. Moreover, I myself have created itineraries of more than 1000 points but if I want to import them into my watch I divide into several parts the more practical and precise route for the trail navigation.
On my mobile, I have FATMAP and SA.
On my computer or mobile internet browser, I export the MC route by registering it to a google drive GPX. I open my cloud from my mobile to “open with” the route. SA opens it automatically, it only remains to save or modify some details. The route is imported into SA with the others. I can then enjoy my trail runs .
I then check the routes to use on my Suunto 9 Baro.

@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
