perhap switch off alarma is a little bit tricky… but ok at the moment
Wanted to mention switching off the alarm – the whole pull up notifications, expand the alarm, and stuff, but then realized this would have been done regardless if you use Theater mode. And you probably want to use Theater mode because as good as S7 is at detecting tilt, moving your hand accidentally at night and flooding the room with that bright AMOLED white isn’t optimal 😟
Better to hunt notifications to shut off the buzzer.
Another thing for El Goog to think as far as usability is concerned. There has to be an a way to return control to the apps like alarm as opposed to the watch face when theater mode is exited.
@дима-мельниченко you shouldn’t to wait, the routes transferred over straight away for me. As in, i click save on desktop, unlock phone and opwn Suunto App and the routes are there. It’s genuinely amazing how fast it is.
I love plotaroute! Simply love it! But getting routes across to Sunnto is a bit of a faff - download the gpx file to my desktop, upload to Google Drive, open Suunto App on phone, upload gpx file in from Google Drive.
It’s a first world problem, but it’s more of a faff than the Komoot auto sync.
However, The ease of the Komoot auto sync is undone somewhat by the sheer insane amount of waypoints it plots! I get having a waypoint where there is a change in direction, but when I run past a turning I do not need a waypoint telling me to “Continue Straight” as I will do that until told otherwise.
So the time I save by using the auto sync is completely undone by having to remove roughly 80% of the auto generated waypoints.
Again, this is all first world problems and either of these options are still better (for me) than creating a route within the Suunto App on the phone.
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.
@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.
