Is a new web site to monitor efficiently trainings planned?
After having read the info saying that Movescount will be closed on October 13th, I’m wondering what are Suunto plans in order to let high-level athletes monitor their trainings, not on phone screen but on a website?
I do understand that maintaining website is a costly thing and that many people use their Suunto watch for running or biking and already share their training in Strava which could be appropriate for them.
I’m coaching rowing athletes and using Suunto and Garmin watches to monitor their trainings as well as N&K speedcoach. As an example, some are selected for the European championships, some for the next Olympic games.
Trying to see precisely the speed or the pace on 2K race divided in 500m sections is not convienent on a phone screen but it is fondamental in order to give the right feedbacks.
It was possible on Movescount, not on Suunto app, knowing that this app is not made (yet?) for iPad or Android tablets.
Of course, I can still export to another platforms (Strava, Endomondo and so on) or share the session by email to then see the training on a Suunto webpage but exporting means another accounts, another fees, and errors of data imports ; but the Suunto webpage does not allow to display several trainings (or a calendar) at the same time, meaning that you have to replicate this operation for all trainings you would like to consider.
So, not complaining, just asking what are Suunto thoughts for high-level athletes’ trainings comparison, deep analysis?
A future website?, evolution of the app towards that kind of features?, on iPad and equivalent?
Many thanks for your time and answer.
AFAIK there will be no web version of suunto app. There are a plethora of external services to do this, as you partially mentioned too. Many are known, others less so. Among those still little known but of undoubted value is QS. I recommend you try it, it’s a great analysis tool
