Just fyi I noticed that compared to the ambit 3 peak. The suunto vertical scores a higher TSS (hr) for the exact same activities and hr when using ambit 3 peak. For example my usual workout with the ambit 3 peak tss would be 47. With the vertical and exact same average hr etc it scores me a 55. Not complaining just thought I’d point it out and wonder if others found the same ?
@gone-troppo it goes back to your HR zone values in the SV, have you personalized them? Suunto uses zone 4 upper limit BPM value as the HR threshold, which is in turn used in TSS(hr) calculation along with workout time series.
A3P doesn’t have a way to manually configure HR zones, all you have there is Max HR setting, from there your HR zones get automatically calculated based on default rages, e.g. Z1 < 60% Max HR, Z2 60-70%, Z3 70-80%, Z4 80-90% and Z5 90-100% Max HR.
That leaves you with a HR threshold = 90% of Max HR on your A3P activities, which right now it’s a different value than the one in your SV. So verify your HR zones in SV and if those are correct, getting higher TSS(hr) on your SV is totally fine
Hope this helps.
Thanks mate that explains it perfectly
