New Suunto 7 Owner
Hi. Is it possible to only use Suunto to track daily activity and exercise and remove the Google fit entirely? The whole ecosystem seems a little half baked.
You can track steps and calories with the Suunto App, and activities of course.
@crupp, connect google fit, turn off the aut-recording and then just ignore google fit on the watch, and use the suunto tiles and app on your watch (I wouldn’t disable google fit as it controls the HR monitor and if you want to connect external bluetooth trackers you would need it).
If you want to track health you will also need Google Fit, as the Suunto app (on the phone and watch) only provides activity detail (much better than google fit), step & calorie count. There is also a sleep tab which we currently don’t get, even if you use a 3rd party app.
So to get a holistic health picture at the moment you have to use google fit (which they are slowly updating), to show weight, blood pressure, steps, calories, sleep etc all together. Fortunately it is a set up and forget as the suunto app will seamlessly sync the data between the two for steps and calarioes and any activity you done. If you perform any standalone HR readings these will also show up in google fit (no graph in suunto app - only as part of tracking).
