Suggestions for evolutions
It has been almost 2 months I have been using the vertical.
I am very happy with it, but as nothing is perfect , here are my suggestions:
- Make a better integration if the suunto apps, some apps like climb needs to be part of the core system. And make the anormal battery drainage when using those desapear!!! I have stop using suunto app because of that, the battery consumption is more important for me.
- Notification vibrate only… Today there is no distinction between notification sound and alarms. So if I want notification vibrations , I will loose the sound on the alarm… It should be an easy one.
- Emoticon displayed in the watch?? I know the watch is not a smart watch like a apple/Fitbit/Samsung/google. But I want to be able to see my most important message properly. I understand that image is not possible, but emoticons? May be with the letter only at list like like :happy, if icon are not compatible…today I got some kind of squares that does not say much…
I know there are more things(maps), but everything else is just fine/great for my usage. Those 3 points are the one for now that have an impact in my day to day.
Thank you for your support
For your 2nd point, it is possible to have notification with vibration only, And, alarm with sound.
My personal settings:
Tones : all off
Vibration : on
Alarm : both
@Mff73 thanks ! I have looked for it! Let’s try your settings! Not really intuitive let’s day
@Mff73 I just tested it. This is great, but I still think a distinction of notification from cellular should be there.
With your setting I have lost the tones of the notifications but form the watch itself, like the auto lap, target etc…
@Mff73 yes! I guess this may come some day…
I guess the best option for me will be to desactivate the notification, and keep sound/alert for the rest but the button. I will have sound during activities and preserve battery!
Point 4: overlay for maps: make the scale overlay desapear after some seconds when change zoom level.
Make overlay configurable to display pertinent information while exercice. Or make preset overlay based on current activity.
I would love display speed , distance etc…
What do you think?
Point 5: a new widget or in notifications screen to indicate the date and time from the last charge!
For the weather widget, under observations, i’d really like to see the current UV index rating, so I know if I can go lie on the beach or not.
@Mff73 Because it is cool to know how long your battery last… And if the longevity is impact by usage (today apps are draining battery for example)
I think cell phone do have this feature. To know if something is draining anormaly. Or if with time battery has less potential… I would like to know that.
I am keeping trace of this with my calendars. May be it is overkill, but I like it since vertical is most potent battery watch in the market today.
It is just cool to know that the battery is lasting almost 2 weeks with intense use of GPS !
@Antoine-Lancrenon And ot could keep history… Very cool graph to see the charge cycles over time while you own your watch over months/years … I think this would be cool.
I think this could make me unnecessarily nervous… for watches there’s a very low amount of charging cycles and I trust in the battery.
what you describe is basically accubattery that I have installed on my phone… and I don’t open it anymore for the reason in my first sentence
Maybe I just have not yet figured out how to do it but I would be happy to have separate settings for backlight during activity and otherwise. Maybe even by activity type. I’m also a bit confused when the backlight turns on by tapping and when not. Im also confused about what the standby mode actually means
