    @jthomi thank you, for sure I’ll find it. It’s not the first Fenix I have 😉



  • I was not on the forum for a while - too busy with new job - but still testing SA.
    Personally as a runner plus with light maintenance gym cessions at home the SA is what I need. I have deleted MC apps and just using SA.
    I thought that not having all my previous moves stored in MC yet on SA would be an issue but as I am using SA since it has been released I have now enough previous activities on it to see my progress. And any at some point all the MC moves will be there too - so not to worry about that.
    My only question would be for the watch update will it be via Bluetooth or still via computer - sorry if I missed the information on that but I have not been on the forum for months …and I am too lazy …no too busy being running/training for having a look at this on the forum.
    Have a good weekend all.

  • Bonjour,
    Je viens de faire réparer ma montre AMBIT2 dont je suis très satisfait.
    Pourquoi me l’avoir réparée s’il faut que je la jete dans 1 an ?
    SUUNTO aurait pu avoir l’amabilité de proposer une alternative.
    Que proposerez vous le moment venu ?



  • Hi,
    So my Ambit 1 that is still functioning very well, and will still be functioning well for years to come, will then become useless?
    Not being able to change the screens and not being able to upload routes, poi’s, etc, and not being able to download workouts will make the watch useless.
    Especially for the earliest customers that were the early adopters for the new Suunto products, this feels very wrong. If my Ambit 1 becomes useless, I will not replace it with a new Suunto watch, but I will rather look at the competition. Excluding the Ambit 1 is very contradictive to how it was put in the market.
    My Ambit 1 replaced a Polar s720i. It looks like that old Polar may outlive its replacement…

    I hope and expect that Suunto will come back to this decision and keep all the Ambits alive.
    Maurits



  • @Brad_Olwin Any suggestions for better web portals? I’ve been only using Garmin since 2007 and am not all that savvy.

    I use TrainingPeaks but you need to pay for Premium. It is not expensive but I understand why some would not want to pay. 30 day trial and $115 US per year. I have heard sporttracks.mobi is very good, it looks good to me but I only tested it a short time. It is not free. There are desktop apps that are good as well. For Mac OS, rubiTrack is excellent, I have used it a long time. Again, none of these are going to be free but offer much more on the training and stress analysis than any of the freebies.

    $115 per year* (ha sorry Brad, just saw your edit)

    The free version isn’t so bad either.

    For others there is runalyze, golden cheetah, and you could probably figure out a way to upload stuff into Garmin if you wanted lol.



  • @Brad_Olwin Runalyze is a good one with some similar features to Training Peaks that’s free, too. It doesn’t automatically sync with Movescount (you have to manually import FIT or TCX files into it at present) but they are planning to have it auto sync with the Suunto app sometime early this year.



  • @misterdangerpants

    FinalSurge gives for free a quality just really near of SportTracks.mobi (60 around $60USD/year) or Training Peaks ($115USD/year).
    For my, by far, SportTracks.mobi is the one more consistent and better relation price/quality.

    @Brad_Olwin funny thing that sportstracker.mobi looks very similar to suunto app, fonts etc 😄

    True, but comparing the history (including the still great, which is highly functional, local Sportstracker PC-Programm) sportstracker.mobi could have been the “inspirational side”… and however it is, having a number of sportstracker-features in SA would be soooo good!
    And BTW I can really live with the non-App-“policy” of sportstracker, which is Vince grating on web an big screens?😁



  • This app is unusable.
    I really do not need to see stock photos in my app. I want to see distance, cal, avg hr or literally anything but photo that takes half the screen with no infromation what so ever!
    And is it possible to make this app to add my distance from last month?
    This app is lacking basic analysis? I have to copy all the data to Excel by hand?

    Beside SS I have suunto quest with bike pod - and now perfectly fine sport watch is obsolete… Heh.

    And i have bought SS only of love to Movescount and all the moves stored there - like everyone I am animal of habit. I didnt want to switch to garmin’s platform. Now I wish i did.

    I understand that you have to do sth and it is unprofitable to support two services but you cannot just kill some of yours products just like that (you can but you shouldnt). I just cant understand why you are shutting down better product? Is there some kid of war between Amer and their idea of Suunto App and former staff that did Movescount?



  • @Bartłomiej-Michałow yes, the stock photos are useless, they add NOTHING, and take half the screen. The summaries in the app are also lacking.



  • @ColdBeer Great, thanks for the tip. I actually decided to send the watch back and purchased a Garmin Fenix 5S.



  • @Brad_Olwin Thanks!



  • @Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos Hi Dimitrios, I am not the first one to mention this but I want to add my voice to let Suunto know that I was in chock reading this: “We are excited to offer you the ability to transfer your Move history from Movescount to Suunto app and continue your experience with Suunto.” I am an Ambit 2 user and Suunto advocate for many years convincing many friends to choose Suunto over other brands. Please rely to Suunto that me and many other people will not be “excited” to throw our older 600-800$ watch to garbage and if we have to do so, this will for sure end our interest in Suunto products, particularly with so many competing products on the market. Thanks.

    @314BMI raised it here, if anyone wants to vote to get rid of the stock photos maybe Suunto does listen to votes 🙂

    I would appreaciate some official Suunto´s reaction to this “discussion”. I’m getting tired of all this uncertainty about Ambit 1,2,3 support, features, Movescount and/or new web platform, etc.


  • Community Manager

    @estevez I am official Suunto when replying to you in most cases and there is nothing to communicate at the moment.

    Take a moment to read a bit higher my response.


  • Bronze Member

    Of course I read your responses above (given cca 14 days ago), I just have a feeling that Suunto had enough time to evaluate this discussion. Just my opinion. However, thanks for answer.


  • Moderator

    @estevez Oh, thats not the time frame Suunto is working in! 😉 But you can be sure, if there are any news regarding this or other issues, you be the first to know here!



  • I own a Suunto 9 Baro.

    Until recently I’ve been able to updload my moves to Movescount using Moveslink.
    I use also Suunto App and have all my moves syncronized on my Android phone.
    Today I tried to connect via Moveslink but was unable to get my Baro detected (tried also several times after rebooting).
    I connected with Suuntolink and It was detected and got the confirmation that the software is up to date and GPS optimised but Movescount didn’t started even if the switch is “on” in “Settings - Open Movescount after Moves are transferred”. In fact I didn’t even notice that the Moves had been transferred.

    Can you hep me?

    Thanks.

    @frovati
    If you’ve already used SA routes sync or sport mode customization, Suuntolink will not sync anymore and it will be used only for FW upgrade.

    Moveslink can’t be used with Spartan


  • Moderator

    @frovati If you sync via the Suunto App, you moves will be marked as synced and Moveslink will not sync them. If you customize sports in the app, Moveslink will stop syncing. The only way to fix the latter is a full reset of the watch. You can find the answers to your questions here on the forum
