Spartan Trainer - Swim and run configuration issues
I have a Suunto Spartan Trainer and am struggling to configure it accurately for swimming and running and thought someone here could help.
Swimming: rest time is not recorded by the watch, which I know. However, I am not sure how the watch detects the start of a new interval. Should I press any button? If I press the lap button at the start of an interval, the watch seems to thing I already swam a pool length. This means that at the end of the interval, the watch misses one pool length. If I do not press any button to indicate the start of an interval however, the watch seems to record much shorter interval times - for the right distance this time. Looking for some guidance on that ideally.
Running: some of my intervals are not 1 km long, meaning I will hit the lap button before the end of the kilometer. However, the watch continues to display the time and pace for this specific kilometer rather than the new lap (or interval, whichever you call this). How can I record and have access to my current lap/interval data for this sort of activity?
you need to setup the fields for running to show lap intervals times.
For swimming make sure you select intervals on laps on MC to see rest times etc.
