@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?
@egika temperature, pressure, fluids etc can affect sensitive equipment, such as our watches, and may degrade it by constant exposure. I think @Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos to that type of changes was referring.
yep, I noted there were some GPS speed drops during my exercise.
and this bug has been fixed after that I lost 3 pounds
I’ll give you test firmware that will transfer 3-5 lb from me to you!
@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.
@loopylou72 Thanks for sharing your result. I think this is Opportunity Cost that we need to expect when we choose lesser accuracy mode. If still able to maintain distance, elevation and pace similar with Performance mode this is really super amazing in my opinion.
@mountainchris the Body Battery function primarily helps to understand when it is possible to increase the load after an illness. It’s always works. It happens that a week after the illness you feel good, you do a light jog and the watch shows stress at times stronger after it. Then it is clear that you need to rest for another day or two, and then run again easily and compare the result with the previous one.
Here’s an example of what the stress charts looked like during my last illness in October 2021 (it was covid-19):
October 13: woke up and felt fine. A simple hike of 17 km was planned for this day, but there was rain and a fairly strong wind. After looking at the readings of the Body Battery, I decided that I would not go on a hike (the experience of using the watch said that they should be trusted). By lunchtime, the temperature rose and the state of health worsened.
The next day was even more difficult. The graph shows that even at night the stress goes through the roof and the body does not recover. But on the night following it, recovery periods are already appearing (blue color on the chart)
And this is what the data looks like already for October 30, after which I returned to training. Garmin perfectly understands the state of the body and helps to plan the load.
And you can only underestimate this function if you haven’t used it before. And Suunto deceives its users when they claim that their watches can do the same.
They claim a different thing btw. But the metrics are in most watches other than Apple Watch and FitBit on this front are still questionable and almost useless (the tell you what you already know …)
In any case , I really feel that the watch should not be replacing us
@surfboomerang I reported it a few times to Suunto, but is not marked for a fix. It can be for many reasons, e.g. it will be part of something larger, or is not considered a priority, or there is no way to fix it, etc.
