@wotuslink text Now they have adjusted the data on SUUNTO website in the image from 13mm to 10,6mm. In reality the OHR sensor is “pressing about 2mm into the skin”, but you don’t feel that. The total height on a flat table is 13mm. IMG_20210701_171909~2.jpg
@wotus After several unsuccsessful tries I found a workaround forcing the watch to measure and record the temperature in openwater swimming (basic and custom exercise), with which all other exercises have no problem.
The only way I found is to activate S+ Weather - Insights before the start.
But even then, the realtime temperatur data field shows no value “–”.
Only if I switch the display to the Weather screen and then back to my first view, the real temperatur value will be shown and appears then in the logbook and in SA.
Can someone confirm this strange behaviour of missing temperatur in openwater swimming which didn’t happen before the last firmware update?
@jom1104 ok, maybe I used misleading words…
It is absolutely not necessary to take actions on the watch to end sleep detection.
Sleep is detected absolutely automatically.
Just there are cases when you wake up and lie still - this is (and can hardly) not always detected as sleep end. For those cases I described a method to end sleep manually.
Think you are a watch and have information about how you are moving when your owner is.
There are different cases:
User sleeping lying still
User not sleeping lying still
User sleeping and moving in dreams or tossing and turning
User not sleeping and going to the toilet for 1 minute
Now program the algorithm that can detect all those cases without error. I think it is not possible error-free.
The Suunto 7 can do this a lot better as in addition to the movement sensor it has continuous heart rate monitoring, while the S9 is just sampling heart rate every few minutes.
and skis are super easy to damage, too. But I was quite lucky with that so far 👍
I am a bit heavier than the average Suunto athletes… I believe 95 does work for most situations for most athletes, but this is not valid for me unfortunately 😜
by the way, we have successfully changed the discussion topic to a nicer one 😀
Your hr will go below resting hr when horizontal. Sensors not detecting movement for a while will assume you are asleep. It takes time to determine and my sleeping times are a little bit off when I wear them both, but not a lot. I also monitor movement with sleep app on iPhone and all 3 agree with each other to a 5min.
@zhang965 I run my 5k in 40 minutes in zone 3 at about 143bpm and my fat burning is off the roof. The zone you are running is in eating in to your carbs rather then fat. From I can see your a serious runner so this is expected at rate you run.
@surfboomerang it does both. If you are exercising it turns on too often (e.g. running or on the bike), and if you are still it takes a strong shake to turn on. We need to collect feedback and provide it to Suunto.
@theguyfromthesummit Well for me it’s just too much info all on one screen. When I’m running long distances or an ultra and my brain is not as sharp as usual I don’t want to be looking at a 7 field screen and have to work out what is what
My main screen for hills/ultra races has ascent, distance & duration (in that order from top to bottom). For flast or faster training/racing I have average pace, current pace, distance & duration. Those are all the metrics I need - I do have another couple of screens loaded but I rarely scroll through to them
@isazi Thanks for the suggestion.
Yes - I did try powering off and back on the device. I also tried an hard reset. Both without meaningful results.
I am now trying to use the watch until the battery is fully drained and the watch turns off, and then re-charge fully the battery. It was suggested in a post on a different topic but I guess it may be worth to try.
Interestingly, when I record an afternoon at my desk using an indoor sport profile the HR is correct and my resources are going up.
Thanks again and will let you know if/when I find a solution.
Just wanted to provide a quick update - Draining the battery, fully recharge the watch and resetting the watch did not produce any noticeable result. The watch auto records 24/7 HR values that are consistently above 80 Bpm (except at night) no matter what (e.g., position of the watch, arm, type of strap, tightness); funny enough the HR - event at rest - recorded through an activity profile appears correct.
Thanks all for the tips anyway.
@iowboy If you have an iPhone and use RunGap you will be able to sync between both Garmin and Suunto with your bike computer syncing to Suunto, the Peak syncing to Garmin so you will have all data on both platforms! Once you set up the syncing, it is automatic and very nice.
RunGap here with the 530 and soon s9p, but before I used with A3P. Works fine
