Due to the transition to the Suunto App I’ve some questions. Will thankfull for the answers
Where will moves store phisically - somewhere in the Web or in a smartphone? I wouldn’t waste phone memory for this.
How will I be able to view and manage moves - through some Web-interface or Suunto App only?
I use Ambit 3. As I’ve understood I will have possibility to setup the watches via movescount.com, but will have no access to moves archive and no possibility to upload new moves. That is the site will live but the most of functions will be disabled?
1- 100% will be saved in SuuntoApp cloud + xx% of data will be dowloaded in your phone to make the app working. If you feel that App storage on phone grows to much in the time, disconnect and reconnect and storage will be cleaned with only data needed to work.
2- New moves only in SA after transition
3- Old moves will still be seeable in MC web (as far as i understand), but no new moves will go there. The site will stay minimum, to see old activities and setup old legacy watches
The suunto 9 does everything the ambit does except apps.
AFAIK there is no real structured workouts feature on newer Suunto watches. And as a “reliable” partner, Suunto decided to remove this feature and throw it to trash for A3 owners 😭 , except with Suunto Apps, which is something really different in easy to use terms function. 😒
So yes, when Suunto removes some valuable features on the Ambit line, we can see that S9 does almost everything that ambit does. 😐
@margusl Lookos good, but it is only for Ambit 1 and 2 watches and I have Ambit 3.
Are you referring to project desription or Moveslink2 actually failed when syncing Ambit3 with mock server?
As you asked if you could write a local service, adjusting existing mock should be quite trivial compared to writing one from scratch.
Anyway, what problem are you trying to solve by service mocking? If you just want your activities as GPX, it’s way more convenient converting Suntolink2 SML files or using Openambit instead.
Being a Suunto user for a long time and having used 3 of their watches I can only agree with your opinion. I honestly tried the Suunto App for 2 months and found it lacking when compared to Movescount. Having logged close to 1700 activities in Movescount and then forced to switch to SA was a poor experience. In addition Movescount was an all in one app that did not require you to sign up to other third party apps in order to analyze my metrics.
Suunto strategy going forward is very questionable and they have lost me as a repeat customer. Will definitely be looking for more user friendly watches & apps once my Ambit no longer works.
I would definitely like to see Suunto add an Expedition Mode like the horribly expensive Garmin Marq model that does that. Great feature. But not paying $1700 for a GPS watch that’s disposable after a few years.
I do carry a small battery pack. But its small to keep weight down (I’m an oz counter) and I pretty much exhaust it keeping my phone charged for photos and video. The watch requires minimal I know. But having to charge it every day over 5 days, I’d probably opt for a second tiny battery pack. The A3P is just hard to beat. Under a trip with heavier expected use use (my definition of heavier use) I’ll definitely have to take a battery along with an S9B I expect.
I’ll have to check out the Casio. But I’m pretty much a “Suunto fanboy”.
I have the same problem (with Spartan Sport + app 4.31.0), I can see my Run but not synch with strava and impossible to get the fit file.
The solution is to remove the data + cache of the application and restart the app.
It’s not serious for Suunto. One year ago, this issue existed…
I have one more request. I have Suunto App on my android. It works fine. I tried to download my todays excercises on Movescount, but there is a problem. I could not transfer excercises from watch to Movescount (old version whitch I used it for years). Do I have to install Suunto App to my computer? I install SuuntoLink, but is SuuntoLink just for sync or is there any other purpose of it. It opens gray sqare with wathc drawn into it, I wait till it sync and thats it.
Under that square it was a note that SuuntoLink and Moveslink2 can not be opened at the same time and for better operation I have to close Moveslink2. I closed it. And after that it was a note, that I have to uninstall Moveslink2, which I did. Now I can not transfer todays excercises to older Movescount, but on Suunto App on my phone it works perfectly. I would like to follow my excercise on Movescount or any other app on my comp. Please, help me. I am starting to get gray hair 😉
If you want to do that you can sync with moveslink or movescount app (you can search for movescount app) and then sync to suunto app again.
It is what I do.
