Suunto Guides Datafield Screen Number of Intervals/Laps
when using a Suunto Guide training from TrainingPeaks, the additional data field screen is very good. All necessary information is there. When an interval ends, a short description of the next intervals pops up. It would be nice if I could see the number of interval like “Round 3 of 6” or something like this. Just a proposal from my side…
@trailcafe I think you can name your rounds yourself so that your text is displayed?
@trailcafe Are you talking about structured intervals, aren’t you?
I think the only one that gives this info is intervals.icu, so is related how is programmed. I have asked for this to add it to the built-in editor in SA.
@cosme-costa yes it’s just a text description, it’s not a computed value
- Repeat 6x (3min hard/3min low)
- Cool Down
Garmin separates these blocks. When you are in Block 2, it says “Repetition x/6” so you know when suffering ends. Yes, I can count to 6 in this case, but in intervals like 3x (10x (30s/15sek)) I cannot count anymore and it would be nice to see how many repetitions are left. As said, Garmin is doing that out of a synced TP training.
@trailcafe TP could do it for Suunto also by adding a counter in the description/name of the step. They do not, though.
@isazi maybe yes, maybe no. Information seems to be in the workout plan because Suunto watch knows when the repetitions end. The description field is filled out by the creator of the plan. Sure I can do 30 repetitions-steps manually and name them 1, 2, 3, … but this is not how you should use that editor.
BTW Stryd app on the Apple Watch also shows the repetition counter.
The description is just
@trailcafe TP could add this information changing the text description (not having you do that), like intervals.icu does already. The guides API allows that, I’m not sure it allows counters baked in the intervals themselves yet.
@cosme-costa thanks for testing. Interesting, that even SA does not offer this counter.
I have a trainingsplan in TP until end of June '23 so I will not switch to any other platform^^
@trailcafe I understand but you can try intervals.icu, it is free.
I’ve made the request to TP support and they said the feedback will be passed, also their support advised to post the idea in customer feedback/ new ideas forum.
Which I have done today, it’s a vote system there too, so if anyone can upvote the post, that would be great, so that we get that little interval counter
Title of the idea is: Interval counter on Suunto’s structured workouts and link below, (it should be under new ideas)
