@amasidlover said in Suunto Spam:
Does anyone know if I unsubscribe from the Suunto ‘spam’ - the almost daily emails I get asking me to buy a new Suunto watch - whether I will still get the substantive updates, i.e. transition update, new firmware / device releases etc. or is it all one preference?
Also does anyone know of an email address for the marketing dept? All of the spam comes from firstname.lastname@example.org
Its starting to get a bit wearing to be bombarded with adverts for new watches when I still haven’t been given a roadmap for when my Ambit3 will lose significant parts of its functionality (settings and workouts configurable with only a mobile phone/tablet).
The same feeling, and now with those same ads on instagram.
So annoying. Before there was content that was more towards the desire of doings sports/get outside.
Seems like a regression.
Thanks for the two suggestions.
I mentioned I was saddened, but mostly I’d like to focus productively on what the replacement can be. So, any other suggestions from anyone, to diversify the list?
Is it possible to connect the Suunto watch to Garmin Connect? If it means anything, I have a inReach I pay monthly for, maybe that would give the ability to start an account.
(My Suunto is Ambit 3 Peak)
@OldaNovak You are right: you cannot sync an Ambit2’s new moves with SA. At the moment that is entirely normal.
MovesLink2 (croc-connector program) isn’t intended to sync with Suunto App at all so you won’t see any new moves there from a sync. As @jw-cou wrote, the transfer copied your existing Movescount data to the SA db which you can review but not, as yet, add to via Suunto App. Check out this recent post.
Pre-Covid-19, Suunto stated that non-BT Ambit users will be able to have a “renewed experience” of functionality via the other cable sync program, SuuntoLink, “by summer 2020”. Check “Compatible watches”, May and November updates here.
@LE_COQ @Spartiate We don’t know if Suunto will finally do a Web App for SA or not (I expect that will do, and I’m asking for that since Nov2017), but actually you could:
Routes: use any of the 3rdparty services for create routes, and then import in SA mobile and sync with your watch
Analyze data: export data to Strava/Endomondo/Training Peaks to analyze your data. Other providers has announced their integration with SA (as Runalyze has done)
Sure SA will grow in features, done by Suunto or 3rdparty developers.
.FIT and .GPX are lowest common denominator formats which only offer a subset of MovesCount features.
For one, .FIT doesn’t define roller skating activity, so I would have to manually tweak all my moves from the last 8 years of daily workouts.
Shearwater makes great products but is overkill if you’re only doing rec diving. If you have no plans for tec, the Suunto is fine.
Me personally, I don’t like air integrated computers with transmitters. Just another point of failure and you’ll need a brass and glass SPG as well anyway so it’s just one more piece to buy in a hobby that has a million pieces.
But, that’s just my opinion. You’ll get both sides of the air integrated argument and it only really matters what YOU like and are comfortable with.
I have a Uwatec Aladin Tec 2g that I’ve been using for years. Picked it up for $250 and it’s small, basic, easy to use and does what I need.
@FinnsAway Please, you could shoot your opinion wherever you want but, please again, don’t lie, don’t confuse people. You must perfectly know that Sports-Tracker is a thousand miles from MC. And it doesn’t matter what you do or prefer to do in the website about your workouts. This point is a non discussed matter at all.
@pescacebesforum said in How consumers use to react to changes:
3.- Surprise: after the first contact with this technology, the user is surprised by its operation. The result obtained in your test is not expected.
Ha-ha! I am at step #3, and my surprise was mostly about how backwards it is.
I think the outrage comes mostly from the fact that many features are removed by the transition to the new technology. It is dumbed down and targets different kind of users. SA is slowly improving and some of the new features proposed in a recent survey are pretty good but the improvements are long overdue. Suunto shouldn’t had forced everyone on the new platform until it was more mature and at least had a feature parity with Movescount.
