I have two questions:
1 - When will route planning and sport mode customization be available in the Suunto App for the Ambit3? Or is this never going to be done?
2 - when will a synchronisation with Strava be available in the Suunto App or is it there already?
Until both of these are done I just don’t see the point of moving to the Suunto App as the MovesCount app works perfectly well for me and I can do everything I need through it. Or am I missing something? Is the Suunto App soooooo much better that it’s worth moving over despite the reduction in functionality?
Look forward to your replies - Ian
@ianholmes9000 I can’t answer for 1) - I imagine though the target is to align SA functionality between watches, but for 2) this is already available.
I have a S9 and not an Ambit3, for me the combo of SA + Relive + Runalyze is already superior to the combo Movescount App + Movescount web (+ Strava that I was using before).
The only thing missing is the POI / way points.
This is of course based on my ‘profile’/requirements, and with a S9 (so including sports mode customizations and route planning…).
Happy to detail further if it’s interesting for you.
@ianholmes9000 , using Suunto App with Ambit3 makes sense only if you don’t want to change settings and reconfigure workouts too often - it syncs nicely in the background, something that was quite rare for me with Movescount, and syncs to Strava with same ascent values you see on a watch, something that was broken in Movescount for a long time, probably still is.
But for routes and settings and workout builder you still need Movescount app. Both apps can be used on the same phone, but it takes a bit of care.
I’m using Ambit3 and Suunto App runs in the background, hardly ever use it for something else but syncing. And I sync to Movescount maybe once a week. Or when I need to change workouts.
