I have the same problem (with Spartan Sport + app 4.31.0), I can see my Run but not synch with strava and impossible to get the fit file.
The solution is to remove the data + cache of the application and restart the app.
It’s not serious for Suunto. One year ago, this issue existed…
I see that most Garmin running watches now also store R-R and they have a website Garminconnect storing your runs. From their website you can export to FIT.
I even think on their watches the running data is stored in FIT format.
When Movescount.com stops to exist and no solution is presented by Suunto, I will change then to Garmin.
I do not follow the Suunto news that much and was only aware of these developments the e-mail sent out by Suunto end of April.
My father was an avid Ambit user. Hiking, Climbing, Trekking, Running, Alpinism - Winter & Summer.
After a while I got jealous and bought my Ambit 2 late 2014.
The first Ambit 3 was already out by then, but as I didn’t need the wireless connectivity for tracking heart rate while swimming, or connectivity to a smart phone and was on a budget, I purchased the Ambit 2.
It had everything I needed and still checks all the boxes today.
For me it looked better than a Garmin or Polar, because I felt I could do more with it then just go running or cycling (for example by having the many different sport modes, which I could even customise).
If I had to choose now, I would still choose it now: I do not need bluetooth, touch screen, color screen, … on my watch like the Suunto 9, Spartan, …
So if movescount has to disappear, my vote goes to a platform that can be accessed on a pc, where I can upload data, download routes I create, create sport modes, … and connect with my cable.
Any replacement should have the same capabilities as Movescount.
But for me movescount is perfect, so in my opinion “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it”.
What is the best way to follow the news on this subject and where can we show Suunto that we would not like movescount to disappear?
@Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos I can’t even figure out how to set up (i.e. install) a single sport-mode, from SA, am I missing something?
Say I want to add mountain-biking, to my watch, how do I do it?
More importantly, how do I do it, say if I get a new phone/device, on 1/5/20?
The GPS-granularity thing is a HUGE deal, for some of my sports, and I’m confident I’m not alone. If they’re not going to ever add ANY settings, for the Ambit3 family, why don’t they just admit it?
If it’s just “the Ambit3 will have close to zero supported functionality”, can’t they just say that, so users can make informed decisions, going forward?
It “seems” a bit like Suunto’s “April update” was mostly just “we see you’re commenting, we’re going to make it harder to install MC after 12/31/19 (a lot harder if you don’t know how to sideload), and maybe we’ll say something new, in May”?
I’m really, really trying not to be just a “negative poster” here, but I’m looking for the “positives”, in the process here?
@TELE-HO I really hope you are right. Using a friends S9 during a weekend I was able to use SA more completely. I was disappointed with both the watch and SA. Had a black screen on my first move, took long time to get GPS position (compared to A3) and disliked the configuration in SA.
Basically it’s mostly the configuration I’m disappointed with in SA. But have not used the other features as much as in Movescount because SA is on small screen.
Hopefully many ambit configuration possibilities will be added to SA, but so far I have not been reassured.
@silentvoyager I do not think this is SA connection but all day HR/Steps and sleeping. If you turn off activity tracking and the sleep monitor the battery on the S9b lasts a long time even when constantly connected to SA. I do like to get notifications on the watch.
Thank you for your suggestions advices.
Unfortunately, the contrast settings not helped, the display test was fine in the service menu, I consulted with the service center, he told, later or sooner should be replace the display, therefore:
I bought a brand new Ambit3 Peak HR black again.
The price-value ratio is very good, I have two years warranty.
At last but not least the accuracy is also very good of the built-in positioning system. (GPS)
The following writings perfectly represent it: https://the5krunner.com/2016/11/05/test-route-for-gps-devices/
@margusl Lookos good, but it is only for Ambit 1 and 2 watches and I have Ambit 3.
Are you referring to project desription or Moveslink2 actually failed when syncing Ambit3 with mock server?
As you asked if you could write a local service, adjusting existing mock should be quite trivial compared to writing one from scratch.
Anyway, what problem are you trying to solve by service mocking? If you just want your activities as GPX, it’s way more convenient converting Suntolink2 SML files or using Openambit instead.
If it is a good owner he listens to advice from experts instead of pushing his/her ideas.
If the security policy of the company is so strict that employees are unable to install software by themselves on their devices, than it is usually because of good reasons.
Reasons that, imo, would overrule the wish to install software for personal use on a company device.
Also, are you held accountable for the issues that happen with Suuntolink or the watch if something goes wrong?
What if, for instance, a new security measure of the company disrupts the communication between Suuntolink and the watch and the watch responds by asking to reset it.
Some users have seen this with a faulty USB cable (☝) and some users with incorrect USB redirection to a VM.
Can the same owner then blame you for it?
I would strongly advice the owner not to mix personal data with a company device, but I also know company politics doesn’t always work that way.
