@pavel-samokha thanks! I’ve actually pre-ordered the peak already, after my SSU’s “brain” had another stroke last saturday during a triathlon run, with 4 identical laps: https://www.strava.com/activities/5455602729 . I finaly gave it up after 5 years of patience. Though standing out from the Garmin crowd with a beautifull S9P is worth giving Suunto another try.
@wotus For biking, the S9P should go 30+ Hours on Performance mode. However, you could go on Performance mode until you get a battery warning and then simply switch on the fly to Endurance mode. That way most or all of your bike would be on Performance mode.
@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
What does your ave HR post against your sleep, and have you checked your HR to see if there are any major blips on it, showing that you definitely woke.
Maybe your HR didn’t move significantly and if you haven’t stood up, its very likely that it might not record it a wake period. I suspect that in your wake periods it was recorded as light sleep, just like it does if you sit and watch tv during your sleep time, don’t move much and your HR lowers similar to sleep - you get a massive light sleep patch, which goes to wake up when you stand up to go to bed.
So if you do wake and want to see a wake period, maybe move around a lot / stand up…
And that is why I would like the ability (on the S7 and would make sense on the Peak) to have the ability to quickly and easily lock the screen/and the buttons.
Currently in the S7 you have to go to settings - display - scroll down and select touch lock. Then you have to confirm it. Would be so much easier if right there in quick settings, and or we could select a button to do this, and or a long press of a button to select this function.
And while i appreciate that when tracking a swimming activity it does this automatically, there are loads of other activities and other times when this is super practical i.e. in the shower, when going to sleep at night etc etc etc.
@sartoric for me that was not true. I had NO HR Graph before resetting the watch and it WAS THERE after the reset, only to disappear again (until I did the next reset, which brought the HR graph with all days HR up again)… it was really weird and I am happy that the watch is working normal again…
@brad_olwin I understand. If we were talking S7 and even S9B, I’d agree with you wholeheartedly. There Resources indeed works as intended and in predictable fashion, for me included. If there are any quirks they are reasonably rare. But my S9P does strange things…
Now we know that sudden drop is a known issue apparently per @Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos, that’s been discussed in the forums in the past. So, that settles some of the above.
What it doesn’t explain is how a restful evening of me rewatching Futurama and reading a pleasant book, followed by no less restful sleep ranked at 94% quality and lasting 8.5 hours, gets me anything less than 100% resources? Especially with WHOOP and HRV4T reporting lower RHR and way-above-average HRV?
Furthermore, why then Resources start dropping at a speed that suggests a major stress day or a hard workout and yet, none of that is occurring? Sure I can feel if I’m that stressed?
Maybe it’s just me (apparently not), but I think FB algos need a bit tweaking in S9P. Perhaps, some of the S7 and LifQ goodness didn’t get grafted correctly.
For those interested, just contacted Suunto via facebook about the availability of leather strap and other colors such as titanium black.
Leather strap for the end of the year.
Other colors “not planned” (totally understandable answer) and new version of customizer, but still to be decided/structured 😃
@nickk Thanks to everyone for their quick replies. I’m in the UK. It’s not yet available on Amazon UK. I’ve messaged Suunto on Facebook so hopefully they’ll be able to tell me if it will be in stock before shipping starts on the 17th.
