@sky0000 This is the advice that Suunto support chat gave, perhaps this will work for you. Good luck.
Please try these steps:
Plug in the watch to the PC and open Suuntolink
When the watch is recognized, press the gear icon on top right.
Go to watches.
You will find the watch name there.
Click many times on the name (5 should be enough, but keep pressing until a checkbox appears)
A checkbox will appear. It will say to “Put the watch to deep sleep after reset”.
Check the checkbox, and then click on “reset all settings” above it.
Follow the instructions.
Let the watch go to deep sleep.
Unplug the watch and then plug it in again: if this worked, it should start again from the original boot and it should then work normally.
@Chris-Wittwer , navigation works fine when recording is paused.
I had somewhat similar situation this weekend, used my A3P for nav during a race and had to glance at it quite often, at some point noticed it was on pause. Didn’t loose more than 15 minutes out of 30+ hours, but it still reminded me to lock those buttons - for me it’s really easy to accidentally hit a pause button when riding with gloves.
@awinkel there is a circular buffer, so space will be reclaimed when needed. I don’t have an ambit, so let’s wait for ambit users to chime in, but I’m pretty confident this is the case.
Is there going to be a firmware update or other way to suppress this annoying, unnecessarily alarming message? The problem is that if you DO NOT sync to the Suunto App, the message IS meaningful, but there is no way for the user to differentiate between real and false-positive messages!
@mlakis That’s not the issue in my case at least. I’m talking about cycling through the navigation screens using the lower left button. The behaviour of mine is identical to that in the query, including the double button press. It’s as if the watch has moved to the next screen but not actually displayed it.
@jurjen agreed, but have to remember that recovery doesn’t necessarily mean stop don’t do any more, it just means take it easy, as can still do recovery runs etc, trick is just not putting out too much effort.
I connected another watch the same model and it works. The question is, can I have two hours connected at a time, according to the system of using one once and another the next? This goes smoothly on the cable. I wouldn’t want to lie for an hour, but to use both alternately.
In some post someone has said that the 4 first digits of the serial number are the year and week of production, I mean if the serial number is 1734XXXXXX… means that was produced the week 34 of 2017. Maybe you should keep the newer.
