Question

Can I use a different company HR strap with my Quest?

Hello, the quality of the HR Dual strap is very poor. I am a small 106lb women and the band is so stretched out that it no longer fits around me, making the connection too loose. I have had the product for less than a year and a half. Is the Quest compatible with any other company HR bands? or do I have to purchase a new band every year? Thanks

Question

Bike pod with quest not pairing

I've just got in a suunto bike pod but it won't pair with the quest. On the packages it says that it is compatible with t3, t4, t6 but that's it. Is it compatible with the quest? I followed all the steps, including creating a short-circuit before pairing and turning on the pod by inserting the battery but no joy.

Yes, Suunto bike POD is, as well as Suunto Road Bike POD (based on my personal daily use) is compatible with Quest. You can check it on http://www.suunto.com/Products/PODs/Suunto-Bike-POD/.

But, I according to my personal experience with Road Bike POD, it was written in manual of that POD, that you do not need to pair this POD, just start to use. But It was not truth. I had to pair it as Speed POD. So try to do so with your Bike POD.

I just checked settings of my quest and there is also Bike POD item in Pairing settings. Just try both.

Hello,
you need to have
a.) movescount.com account - online web service collecting your wrist data
b.) moveslink (http://www.movescount.com/connect/moveslink/Suunto_Quest) - software downloading data from your wrist unit and synch with movescount.com account

Do you have both of this points?

Question

How do you obtain accurate HR readings?

In my last 2 work outs, the heart rate readings were not close to accurate. I have replaced the battery in both the watch and the HR belt, but when performing a strenuous resistance work out, my heart rate stayed in the 84-90 bpm range for a full 30 minutes. Normally, this work out pushes my HR into the 130-145 bpm zone. What can be done to obtain consistent accurate readings?

Before you put the belt on, please make sure that the sensors are moist with water. Keep it tight on your body, right below your chest with the round module in the front and with the red little arrow pointing upwards.
Also it's recommended to wash off the belt each after work out with lukewarm water and mild soap (not the round module, just the textile strap). Wipe off the sensors carefully with a towel and let it try.
After every 5-8th work out it's good if you wash the textile section of the belt in a washing machine on a delicate program (under 40 degrees Celsius) and without detergent and softener. Sometimes there might be dirt that gets stuck to the sensors of the belt or on the small clips that goes into the round part of the belt and then it the recording of the heart rate will be inaccurate.

Question

Heart rate stuck at 150

Recently whenever I connect my HR monitor the HR reading immediately goes to 150bpm and stays there.
It's only once my true heart rate goes above this value does the heart rate then show it as it should be.
If I drop below 150 bpm (true hr) the watch will not follow suit

Any suggestions?
I have replaced the battery and reset + repaired the belt

Maybe (but I'm not sure) it is because you once made distance calibration on Quest and maybe it is wrong. I would check this. But this is just guess.

Question

Why does it take 10-15 minutes before data shows up on my watch?

I have new BATTERIES in both the chest strap, and the watch. I put a dab of Aloe Vera on the chest pads to make a better connection to my chest -- but that hasn't fixed the problem, either...

HELP!

And what address do I send it to in the U.S. to have it fixed if your suggestions don't work???

Thanks,
Michael

Did you try it without this Aloe Vera? Just try to clean strap it completely, then make strap wet (by water) and try again.

Question

50% Wrong

When used with the Suunto GPS Track POD my quest suddenly started to show wrong speed and distance. The speed and distance is 50 % faster and longer than normal. When I load my data to movescount the data on the gps is OK but on the quest they are 50% wrong. I gave the watch a factory reset but it did not help. I have also tried to connect two quest to the same GPS track POD at the same time and my quest shows 50% wrong compared to the other quest. So I do not think it is the GPS track POD making the problems. It is the same watch kausing asked about. Can anybody help ? Thanks

In order to find the stopwatch on your Suunto Quest you must press the upper button while in time mode. Select "Training" with the button on the middle, then to start the stopwatch press the upper button.

Question

Not all data in chart.

Hi,

When using the start/stop button on my Suunto Quest, the graphs doesn't show correctly in movescount. (See screenshot)
When just using the lap button, it all shows correct.

Is there an error on my watch, the site or an error in my settings?
Please help, i'm pretty annoyed about it.

Thanks,
Martin

If you are pausing during exercise, we currently have a bug in movescount when data disappear after pausing. Our technicians are working on it and when we have a solution, there will be an update. In the meantime, we recommend you not to paus your exercise.

Question

Training programme reminder?

Hello,

I synced my Suunto Quest with Movescount with Movelink. Movelink itself said that the link and data transfer was okay. Well, I was supposed to go excersize today according to my training programme (but I didn't, since I wanted to see the reminder). Yet no reminder was shown today. Why? Did the training program not upload for some reason? Thanks in advance!
