Suunto 9 Baro possibly bricked
my suunto 9 baro shows an arrow and 2 dots after I started a cycling activity. I’ve had the watch for about a year with no issues until now.
Soft reset doesn’t work.
Hard reset with suuntolink doesn’t work because firmware updating stops at 3/4 and suuntolink says “update failed”.
I read on the internet that draining the battery to 0 and simply plugging the watch to a wallcharger helps so I tried that and managed to boot the watch. It worked well for about a few hours.
Then it rebooted by itself again and is showing me the arrow and two dots again.
I retried with draining the battery and now this no longer works. Hard reset stops at 3/4 with the “update failed” message.
I downloaded Ibiza 2.23.24 firmware and tried to downgrade but that also doesn’t work.
Can I throw my expensive watch into the trashcan now or can I do anything else in order to get the thing to work?
Thank you for any help in advance.
@Michał-Ciba something may be wrong with the hardware, contact support and see what they say.
