General Feedback after 2 months with my new Ambit 3 Peak



  • @Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos said in General Feedback after 2 months with my new Ambit 3 Peak:

    @silentvoyager this is wrong. These features are there and are deleveloped atm for the Suunto app. The target audience is more adventures/mountaineers rather than fitness. The steps etc is only one part of the app and if you have not noticed they are going away with the new day view (or at least become less intrusive)

    Right that it’s wrong. Luckily, trackback is one feature that works. Thus, it is still not very handy since you cannot erase activities (by the watch nor by the app) or even rename them.

    About the target audience, I am glad to read that but I have some doubts since I can read all along this forum mainly speaking about stats, heats maps, connect to friends, or link to strava.
    Moreover, if this is the target audience, how does it come that the first goal of SA was connect to strava and make fitness stuff works before what is useful for mountaineers e.g. managing and using GPXs ?

    @Droro there is one , and with IOS , provided you have latest version and a phone with you (duh) you can create in 1-2min a route from prev workout and send it to the watch .

    I guess we are talking here again about other watches than ambit 3, right ? Because I just tested the very last iOS version 1.7 which doesn’t solve anything about the concerns I shared above. 😕

    the export gpx button doesn’t display on mobile phone

    Hi @remib ,
    Try this:
    While in the Movescount.com in the browser on you phone, enter the 3 dots menu and mark the “Desktop site” (or similar) checkbox. This should load the site as you see it in regular desktop PC.
    Maybe then you will have that button visible.



  • @Oktan hi,
    Thanks for the tip but already tried… not working 😕

    It should

    You probably need to scroll down a little bit the route window and, just to avoid confusion, we are talking about MC website not MC app

    Yes we talk about MC website.

    Now, in it, to avoid confusion as well from my part, I would like to precise what you call the route window. On MC website, I only see the main screen with my moves.
    You understood that I want to take a “move” and export it as GPX file at least considering that little part of the wider discussion (on the other side, I am even much more interested to import gpx file as routes in my ambit3 peak).

    ABOUT IMPORT GPX

    Well, under MC site with a desktop PC, I’ve got these :
    IMGCapture d’écran 2019-02-24 à 17.20.46.jpg
    note the + button at the bottom left of the map which give me the option to import a track when you click on it goes to file explorer of your PC to select a gpx file.

    Under iPhone (with both Safari, or Firefox with the trick “view as desktop”) :
    there is no + button at all as you can see

    ABOUT EXPORT GPX

    Let’s go to a random move on mine. I have on desktop PC the sub menu tool which gives options to export the move as GPX and even KML.
    IMGCapture d’écran 2019-02-24 à 17.32.29.jpg

    Now, the same on the iPhone :
    IMG_4710.jpg
    The only offered option of that same menu is deleting move… (… which will anyway reappear at the next sync since a move is never deleted from the watch until full memory and is always copied from the watch to MC or SA every time you “sync”. That make me begin to say : that sync stinks ! But that’s digression for sure.

    Well , did I missed something ?
    thanks.

    @remib
    From the routes page (the one you attached) you need first to select a route in order to export it (on pc/desktop too)
    On mobile “desktop” mode you’ll be asked to turn the phone (if needed) to show the landscape view of the routes page, then you can select the route and turn the phone to portrait view (vertical).
    You’ll see the export button in the bottom left.

    I can see the plus button too

    To export moves, once in “desktop” mode you should see the same options you see on your pc.

  • @sartoric
    Definitely, I don’t have the screens you’re showing on my iPhone. I’ve even tried to use Chrome for iPhone but nothing appeared more than the screenshots I showed in my previous msg.

    I don’t know if this is a platform specific bug on iOS or something else, but the fact is that It simply don’t work for me. 😕

    Hello,

    I retried the tip with my old Android and all you describes is then working. Therefore, the tip is definitely not working with iPhone 😏
    Thanks again anyway, It was worth trying it.



  • Hey there,

    I feel the need to share a little update to what I already said, what I’ve been answered, and linked topics to the new beta 1.7.1.

    To shortly recap history

    I am a quite new user (around 4 months) of A3 peak, after being 10y user of a vector.
    My needs are an app that sync (meaning update from both the app and the watch) : recorded tracks and customs routes.

    At the moment

    I’ve been told here MC was working good. It’s not with my iPhone so I can’t share that point of view.
    That SA would support A3 peak which is now quite not true since it only retrieve basics infos from the watch and that’s all : no syncing, no sharing tracks (offline mode is mandatory). I’ve been told that it would take some time since it was not clear that A3 users would like to have SA. I reckon reading topics here it is much clearer that A3 users want a working app that gives all honest features.

    I have also been told that Suunto was committed in adventure/mountain users but more than fashion/sports ones. So I feel it hard to understand that update after update, SA shows improvements and corrections in charts, graphs and… still nothing for handling decently A3s products.

    About the last update

    It finally seems to support route/share export GPX. Oh well, provided you’re connected to internet… not really for adventure users who are away in the mountains from networks.
    In fact, It’s almost not even Suunto that provides this since it relies on sports-tracker.com web service to make the share/export.

    But well ok, I have now on my iPhone half MC service I had with my computer since it still doesn’t support import GPX to the watch, only to SA app…

    About the (no-)roadmap

    Updates rhythm is about every 15 days. But in 4 months, It showed so little progress for A3 users. It still lack (in off-line mode meaning really handled by the Suunto app and not by a third part online service) :

    • import routes and POI in GPX to the watch
    • export routes from the watch
    • sync app with the watch (even erasing activities from the watch)
    • setting up the watch with the app (customs fields, gps refresh, sports…)

    General feeling

    I begin to feel really frustrated by that so little progress. In comparison, I use a GPS app on my iPhone and the developer applies improvements on his app within 4 days for every feature request/bug report I submitted to him.
    I feel like asking myself does anybody is really in charge of coding/managing software development of SA ?
    Because It’s like @Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos is in charge of supporting everything and especially desperate users while people at Suunto look like invisible men. I hope sir you are well paid for this because, from here, it looks like you are the only one who is (hard) working 😉

    Finally, I begin asking myself if it shows no significant improvements in the next weeks if I’d better ask for a refund or exchange, that I the most deeply regret at this time.

    Hoping to see very soon very concrete news.

    R.

    I have exactly the same feelings (esp. after last (beta) update of SA). Nothing new for A3 watches. I try to be patient, I really appreciate how @Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos is responding here, but I would like to see some progress… for A3 watches.

    Great tip that app Full Browser 😉
    However, it seems I would have to sync from MC (app for iPhone or www on a pc) to upload for real the route to the watch…
    But at the same time, I have to use SA to export a track in gpx from a recorded activity, provided I am connected to internet (as already mentioned in my previous post… :-/)

    And finally of course, MC and SA apps cannot work together on a smartphone…

    Well, well, well. It looks like I am not done with scratching myself the winter hat
