@dmytro yes yes … the 9 serie might see some software upgrade, and let’s wait a 10 or 11 serie with a bigger new brighter hardware screen … Let’s be patient and for the moment appreciate this 9 baro which days after days I love more and more and more
I did that when I broke my elbow and had my left arm in a cast for 7 weeks… I still did not got used to it…
It’s now >2 years that I own the S9B and I recall that I’ve asked for a lock button in watch mode pretty soon. It’s amazing what has been developed, improved and implemented in that time. Really interesting, useful and demanding stuff (to develop)… but no lock button 😉
@jmoneygrip I agree. I also found that the OHR is fairly accurate during activity. It is reasonably close ( at least during trail runs) to what I record on my chest HR monitor. I am satisfied from that standpoint.
What annoys me are all the huge spikes in HR readings at rest and during the night. I do not probably meet the characteristics of the perfect target customer for the S9P; hence, I may care about wellness data from the watch ( and HR reading outside an activity or training) more than the average customer. However I still think this is an issue as these readings may affect sleeping scores and other metrics.
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.
guys every electronic device may have issues: my Garmin 645 (which I tend to enjoy) today restarted my activity in the middle of my run , splitting one Activity into two.
Ok… it is not the end of the world. 3 years back my A3P lost my open water swimming while saving the HR from the strap . Its ok…
This. Every electronic or mechanical advice has issues. No matter how much quality control/quality you put on it.
@boazzimmerman I had same issue with the HR when I was lifting weight, bought the belt and been using it for about a year now, and it pretty much solved 95% of the HR issues. 5% of the time the sensor might get ripped off when I was doing bench press and muscle up.
@isazi Oh thanks for your warm words 🙏, when you want to learn from a teacher I suggest to look for a local teacher. Often this can be learned in Qi Gong courses or also in Yoga or Tai chi classes in fitness studios or martial arts schools.
Qi Gong is often the easiest way to start since it has easier movement techniques (compared to Tai Chi or Yoga from which I know very less) and breathing is an fundamental part of it. There are “low quality” courses who only teach the movement, like a gymnastics style, but breathing is an integral part of all “inner arts”.
If you just want to practice breathing by yourself, there are many books and even good apps. I could recommend the books from Dr. Yang Jing Ming, a highly skilled and respected master like this:
which is also available as an app for Android an iOS with good videos.
Or better for starting:
Dr. Yang has a lot of good publications and being a physicists he also has a scientific background. He also has many videos on YouTube.
Another great book (but more on Qi Gong / Chi Kung as a whole and the Zhang Zhuang “standing like a tree” techniques) is “The way of energy” from Master Lam Kam Chuen, which I consider the best book for starting to practice Qi Gong since it is very well written and covers every aspect of life and how practicing Qi Gong techniques help e.g. to have more stamina in sport or in all day life.
Maybe, also my unit is not perfectly aligned but not as this one in photo. Mine is impossible to see with naked eyes and only notice if i use a fingernail, however i think it’s not as much than 1/20mm so i think perfectly in manufacture tolerance.
@andré-faria thank you,
I hopefully wont be in a position to replicate again for another 12months, I was doing some extent mapping via a hovercraft; therefore used Sailing as the activity and the activity in question was in excess of 5hrs, be a while before I’m doing that job again in those circumstances, I personally think the software / firmware side got into a tizz; this can happy to a lot of hardware that has firmware installed to control the hardware.
As mentioned I will of course keep an eye on the situation and if I find the Bluetooth not appearing to broadcast again then I may get in touch with Support or just send it back (bought through amazon, so this is often easier than waiting on support.
