@Marcin-Byrtek yeah right, default is on, but what if you got your Vertical used or tested by someone (like mine) and wasn’t set up by you?
Maybe I could reset at some point my watch to see how is the default ON state 🙂
It seems not very intuitive to have to force the sync from the watch while plugged into the USB.
Did you made those Movescount changes while your watch was plugged in? Or perhaps you didn’t have internet connection at that moment you plugged in your watch? Or was your firewall concerned about Moveslink2 making connections?
There’s no active connection, polling from Moveslink2 side or pushing setting updates from Movescount. Thus Moveslink2 application starts it chat with Movescount service only after you’ve connected your watch to USB and it has synced data from the watch, it then checks just once with MC if there’s anything new to send to the watch. So you either make your Movescount changes before connecting to usb, reconnect your watch to trigger new sync or force sync manually. You also might just had a random glitch or there was some short term issue at Movescount side.
Autosync option in the watch menu only affects syncing with mobile app.
@isazi Thanks for the advice. Got back my old cable and it worked. The thing is that this old cable’s clip broke and i have to hold and press the watch against it while synchronizing. The new cable is form Suunto and just started malfunctioning. Going to see if warranty applies.
On your later points, see @sartoric’s directions but as to on-board Topographic map - nope.
And FWIW, I also use the thing for hiking and would also like to share your beliefs about FusedAlti but it hasn’t been my experience (on hills) that it’s much better than the Baro on the old Vector. Weather change might require the Vector to be manually corrected (of course) while, regardless of weather, the GPS component of FusedAlti could introduce its own errors, overriding manual correction.
If your search yields simple, useful answers to your questions, please drop 'em back here and thanks in advance for the gleaning.
@lollo1982 Suunto will have a solution for Ambit owners as they have stated in their communication and as @TELE-HO stated, there is a ton of information on this. I would continue to use MC until it is shut down.
@isazi thank you very, very much - it looks like that has worked! It’s nothing like as straightforward as Garmin but hopefully I’ve got there in the end. The test will be on the openwater swim tomorrow!
I had the same issues with a 4iiii powermeter (left side only). I wrote an app in movescount which multiplies the bike power by 0.5 --> “RESULT = SUUNTO_BIKE_POWER_1 * 0.5;”. Unfortunately you get the original power values (so the doubled ones) if you export fit-files to e.g. trainingpeaks or golden cheetah. My solution was buying a bike head unit to get the correct values for the analysis.
Maybe you can configure half of the crank length with the app for the powermeter?
