@Sebastien-Boulanger I would suggest to try the standard things and if nothing works contact support also. Things like clearing the cache, or even reinstalling the app from scratch. Also which version of the app are you using? And did you update Android recently?
@sartoric did what you say and tightend and cleaned the band and went running for 5 km which delivered the complete same (!) average hr both on the S5 and the AW 5
Then after a pause went walking with the dog and voila same problem: after a while the hr raises magically on the S5 to over 150 bpm, while it never surpasses 119 bpm on the AW5
@reesmt78 I ask myself whether constant charging and incomplete charging cycle would affect battery health in the long run. I personally would rather opt for bigger battery then the solar charger option, but I can see this as a feature for through hikers.
@brnfox The calculations for relative effort or calories are based off of HR zones, which if different will change relative effort. In addition, Strava eliminates what the app thinks are pauses so in my experience the two relative efforts (watch and Strava) are close but never identical.
And secondly, yes, Strava does not have different HR values for cycling and running so this will be an issue.
@suuntosun there is no desktop app. You can sync your workouts with other services that can be accessed via browser. Check Strava, Runalyze and quantified-self.io to name the few that Suunto App can export to.
Yes, you can edit your distance in SA, but i don’t think this edit will transfer over to strava.
If you have a Concept2 Machine then you could use their logbook to connect to strava that way it transfers the correct distance and a few other data points time/500m etc.
If you do other sports which transfer to strava via SA and you decide to use the concept2 logbook to transfer your erg session, you will have to simply delete the transferred SA workout in strava which will be a duplicate of the concept2 session.
Hope that make sense
Edit: I should add I have the S9 but I would imagine the same data is editable in SA for the S5 Watches
@pikeviewer The Suunto 5 does not have a barometric altimeter and can only measure ascent via GPS. The ascent data increment cannot be changed and will not be as accurate as a barometric altimeter. Third party sites can perform altitude correction on the data from the Suunto 5.
