@andrasveres and others who took the time to answer, thank you.
At the end I surrendered to the corruption of modern gadgets and got a smartphone (fooling myself with the excuse that “I also use it for work”)…
just to discover that I can’t sync to MovesCount those moves recorded after MovesLink was abandoned.
Looking at maps on a smartphone screen, although 6.3", is frustrating and using any software on a computer, with screen, mouse, and keyboard, is way more practical than on a smartphone.
@TELE-HO you’re right but how long can I wait. It didn’t make any sense for me since I’ve been waiting for 3 months and the only thing I get from Suunto support is the same question about my software version.
Also, I don’t know how you can define the suunto 9 and 5 battery like this. Suunto 7 is a smartwatch, not comparable to ambit. Your ambit2 does not reach more than 30 hours at maximum gps precision like suunto 9 and does not have endurance mode to push you up to 120h. It does not even reach Suunto 5’s 25h.
Notifications can be turned off and the navigation features of suunto 9 and suunto 5 are fantastic.
There are no apps for suunto 5 and 9, but they have a lot of features that ambit doesn’t have. I have also an ambit3, i know what i’m saying. They are two different watches, from two different families, as the different name suggests.
When you refer to a lifestyle watch, you are perhaps referring to suunto 7, which is a smartwatch. As you can see, suunto 9 and 5, which have nothing to do with a smartwatch, are still on the list and meet everyone like me and you who want solidity, reliability and indestructible materials from the watch.
On the forum we had many people in love with their ambit who, once they switched to suunto 9, said they were enthusiastic. I advise you to try.
I just discovered last week that a lot of moves were wrong in Ascent / Descent values once imported :
on Movescount, these moves are fine ;
on SA, they are wrong.
I think the problem is coming from moves that were on the two platforms (in 2018, i was using the two platforms and synced my activities on the two services) : the Ascent / descent bug on SA wasn’t solved last year and i always get wrong values. So i stayed on Movescount the time to get this bug solved.
I remember reading some information telling us that once the bug solved, all the old moves with incorrect Ascent / descent values will be updated ? Am i wrong ?
What is the solution to have some correct datas for Ascent / Descent which correspond to the right values that are on the Movescount platform ?
I’m trying to ask some assistance from Suunto :
nobody on French phone assistance ;
i don’t find any way to contact some mail assistance…
