@Brad_Olwin I understand - and understand you.
App-wise: my choice would be SA, too, hands down, too in comparison to the MC-App, but
Website-wise/Computer-based: my choice is still the fully functional MC-website, as the only alternative site made and delivered by Suunto. There most certainly is a bunch of websites that can do a lot in order to analyse data, prepare for races etc, but these sites are absolutely not made to handle the Suunto-watches but only the data provided by these watches.
All in all the main argument has not changed: SA is no substitute for the MC-website, not even for the S9, not at all for its predecessors
Does someone, with an Ambit3 and a foot or power pod, know or tested in Ambit3 watches what does the “Power POD Compatibility” option do? I found this option in the service menu and since I own a “Run” version that can be paired only as foot pods, I find quite strange having this option.
surprisingly I’ve planned a biketour in an area I completely don’t know. So I did my first glimpse at the navigation in the Ambit… never used it before. But it looks awesome. Route planning or loading from an existing route is a piece of cake.
…hope the Ambit will be supported for that in SA, soon. Because in SA it looks great, too… a bit tricky for fatfingers but then there’s still hope for SA web, right?
…never ever thought I would try and use it, but it is so simple!!
@thanasis said in Share your experience with the Suunto app here!:
Ambit 3 peak is still the “peak” for me but I doubt there is going to be any support for it .
Just enjoy it as much as you can but bear in mind that you have to replace it eventually
Currently in the German Suunto Website the third update about the future of MC states, that even for Ambit and Ambit2-users a solution is near to completion (my translation!) that enables even these models to connect to SA!
So I would not worry to much and to soon about the Ambit3 support
@Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos I had an AGPS issue today with my SSU.
My last run was 3 days ago, AGPS was up to date, the SSU found GPS quickly. After that run I’ve synced to movescount via cable (using both MC and SA atm.). I missed to sync with SA as power saving mode was active on the watch.
Today I vent to run and the watch didn’t find GPS. I disabled power saving and synced with SA. The sync completed, the last run appeared in SA. The watch still didn’t find GPS. I checked the AGPS data on the watch, which showed N/A. Tried to sync again, still got N/A. Finally I did a 12s reset, after which the sync updated the AGPS data correctly.
I’m using the latest SA beta on Android.
A friend of mine also gets these 200 bpm spikes at the start of activities … new watch, new belt, new sensor, wets the belt properly before start but the spikes at start are quite random. I myself have had some issues with the sensor, but mostly flatlines at the start of recording for a couple of minutes or occasional spikes over 200 bpm (which are an abnormality for me).
the distance was always higher than what I got from phone with runtastic.
but when running with friends having ambit2 or garmin fenix5 I noticed that on distances there were not high differences, but on altitude yes.
I was setting S9 to get altitude from barometer and they were taking the altitude from GPS.
I had 50-60m differences on 800m total altitude gain.
I don’t know which one is more accurate or if it’s good or bad.
Hi @Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos could you please explain why we have difference between pace data in watches and movescount during pool swimming? Autolaps were disabled.
Let me show my activity.This is data displayed on watches, as you can see the pace is 1:58, total time of activity is 33’19 min.
When the data is transferring to Movescount the pace changed to 2:13, total time of activity noted is same, 33’19 min.
I understood that we have difference between Strava and watches, due to different calculation, but why we have difference between watches and Movescount?
This is data from Strava, the pace is 1:58, BUT activity time is 29’37 min! Its moving time without time for refreshment between swimming intervals.
To be more clear i got swim 3 times per 500 meters with refreshment abt 1 minute between intervals. As i noted autolaps is disabled and i didn’t use pause button during activity.
@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.
@Niall-Oswald I am also facing this problem with my Ambit 3 Peak. I have tried it time and again but to no avail. I am left with no option but to stay with Movescount. Suunto must do something. This is very unfair and annoying.
@silentvoyager " It isn’t useful to look at one metric at a time. Ability to overlay multiple metrics together and select and zoom is essential. Movescount has that!"
I agree with you for 100%
Suunto knows our requirements, if they listen, they can have the best sport-watch app on the market.
