Improving 24/7 HR tracking
In a word, the daily tracking provided by the Spartan/S-Series watches is “ok”. It would be nice to see Suunto take a leaf out of Polar’s book, at least for the S3 which is specifically designed as an activity tracker (maybe the S7 too), and rework HR tracking to be more responsive to wearer activity, as opposed to just checking every x amount of minutes.
From Polar’s Continuous HR topic:
The timed measurement checks your heart rate at regular intervals, and if your heart rate is elevated during the check, the feature starts to continuously track your heart rate. Continuous tracking of your heart rate can also start based on your wrist movements, for example, when you’re walking with a fast enough pace with your arms swinging. The continuous tracking of your heart rate stops automatically when your activity level drops low enough.
More of a feature suggestion I guess.
