S9B battery drain during long activity pause
@Maryn absolutely. Although I have seen Fusedalti kick in during a break and improve the altitude readings.
I dream of this feature “resume later” for a while now!
I have found a way to save battery by switching the GPS setting to Off or OK during long breaks. It helps a lot.
in this “pause” mode I’m sometimes a bit scared that accidential button press ends or resumes the activity…
…but I think I’m eccentric as I’m always afraid of unwanted button press… also in watch mode or during an activity when I would like to benefit from the touch function to swipe left and right to switch screens
It happened to me several times and i hate that.
Another trick is to keep the watch on setting screen!
@TELE-HO You can still lock the buttons even in pause mode. Just press long enough to not end the activity
…or is exactly this what you are scared of?
Yep i tried this option, it works!
But, yes there is a but, I don’t remember exactly but it was extremely painful to unlock buttons with auto-pause or pause and rainy condition.
Edit: perhaps, i forgot the long press to the lower button…
thanks, yes I haven’t had the opportunity to try or when I’ve had it I did not remember
I’ll do it next time, thank you for the hint!
I think that a watch that is aware of battery drain should propose after 5 or 10 minutes to continue the activity later or not…
And resume it later
It’s not safe to keep that pause mode for a long Time , nor it not safe to lock
Also an option to stop that unuseful OHR that permanently flashes even during a pause or when the watch if off your wrist…
@chrisc92 OHR / HR is helpfull for calories even during a pause. Among others also for 24/7 HR that is a no go if the user doens’t explicitly turn it off.
