For 2 nights in a row for some reason the battery has been draining 45%.
Looks like Bluetooth is consuming a lot.
After both nights the consumption has calmed down to normal so something is going on during the night.
I’m tracking sleep with Sleep as Android but it has been ok before.
@bulkan Hi, it was just me playing with WearOS Watchface development during the last “lockdown”. I’ve never really put enough effort to make it production ready and unlikely to find time for it in the near future.
I think Nomad watchface is quite good substition for it.
@Egika is it accurate for you? It says 30C but the room temperature should be 26C. I guess because the watch itself is generating heat, and the sensor fail to compensate for that.
This temperature information is the battery temp of the watch. It might be a little above ambient - especially during charging…
So maybe it is not the best idea to rely on the data (have yet to try in water)
Hi, I am wondering why I don’t see popular routes for running in my hometown? the heatmap has many streets being covered by runners and also a few starting points. But no popular routes are shown even if I zoom out.
Do I miss something?
@Jamie-BG Oh man that’s a real shame!! As I mostly do cruising, my girlfriend saw the photos of the places I had been and was instantly interested. Once she got over the seasickness she now loves it and is working through her qualifications.
I haven’t done much racing of the type you did, but I did a little and loved it! As I was the newbie on the boat and a rugby player (heavy and strong!) I was either sat on the rail or grinding. I can sympathise with your experience of sat on the rail getting cold and wet, but I still loved it.
Most of the racing I have done has been on a 68’ Ketch (although I did do one race on a 300’ square rigger!) and the typical races last 300-400 miles, starting in one country and finishing in another. With a few thousand crew taking part, the after parties can be pretty wild.
I’ve also done the Round the Island Race a few times and it is one of the most insane and amazing things ever!
Like you I have so many amazing memories (and some less good ones!) from being out on the water, from racing around Europe, island hoping in various archipelagos, being becalmed in the middle of the North Sea so going for a swim with no land in sight and hundreds of metres of water below us (not something to do if you have an inferiority complex!), getting caught in a 55kt squall that tossed a 75’ boat around like a toy, gah I could talk for hours!
Sailing has given me some of the biggest highs and lowest lows of my life and I wouldn’t change it for anything. I can’t wait until the pandemic is over and I can get out on the water again (almost all sail training is currently cancelled and without my own boat I can’t even get out for private cruises 😞 )
I think it’s only possible while creating a new thread.
You are right! Just tried creating a new thread and there you go. Tags bar is staring you right in the face if you know to read the fine print. I supposed adding them on edit may require permissions. Or maybe it’s not possible. @Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos is on the case.
But at least, I know where to look next time I post.
or Garmin will add a WearOS co-process to a Fenix…
As one friend of mine used to say, it it were that simple, it would be sitting on a shelf at Walmart for $3.
Fenix is incompatible with WearOS from the ground up. Basically, Garmin would have to abandon what they currently have and spend upward of a year or two catching up to where Suunto is here and now. Worse still, having all these bells and whistles, aka features, means a bulk of them will have to be ported too. Otherwise, it ain’t be Garmin. Look at the flak Suunto is getting for leaving features out of Suunto 7. Imagine tenfold of it for Garmin.
Worse still, they can’t just abandon ConnectIQ and will have to continue to bleed cash on it because it already made its way into Forerunner and other series. For now Fenix and other high-end watches underwrite further development. It will become a much tougher proposition once left to mostly Forerunner line.
@Piotrd - tends to reduce battery life, as when no bluetooth connection it automatically turns on wifi (you can switch this off); however now that your connection issue is resolved it shouldn’t be a major issue going forward.
PS - would recommend switching play store on watch to manual update - you will get a notification when their is an app to update, and this way it stops the watch choosing an inoportune mate to update (when it might try and use wifi when there isn’t and or end up using bluetooth for download - which can take up quite a bit of juice).
The other watches that have VO2 max, like TicWatch 3 pro, do not mention anything about firstbeat licensing which is why I didn’t know about it i guess.
Will Suunto 7 be getting this to stay competitive?
I saw you post something along the same lines requesting “estimated” to get around needing the licensing maybe? link text
There’s a list of Firstbeat licensable features here (they used to have a selector where you could see which watches support which functions, but that seemed to disappear since Garmin took them over, for obvious reasons)
Does Ticwatch Pro 3 really have Firstbeat Vo2Max, I never found mention of it when scanning their website and manuals ahead of opting for S7 ??
(although I just refer to the Runalyze interpretation of Vo2Max which seems to work for me in line with what I ‘feel’ when I look at the trend of average Vo2Max)
Thanks. There is only one way back…make the best of it.
Sure you ask yourself why me… but you don’t get an answer on that question. So look ahead, it is also more pleasant for your family and surroundings.
I have a handbike now and I’m going out one my own, have a peace of my freedom back now !
