Please note that on Mac computers the system requirement for the Moveslink2 is to have an Intel-based Mac running version 10.6 or later of OS X.

The Mono Framework 2.1 is not necessary for the Movescount software.

There are two different straps available for the Suunto Ambit, the Black one and the Silver one. Both straps are compatible with all the Ambit models. There are no new models published in the foreseeable future, but of course later on there might be new Ambit models coming out.

Please try forcing firmware update on your Ambit to see if this rectify the issue. The firmware update option can be found when you right-click the Moveslink icon on the task bar. If the problem remains persistent, please return your Ambit for examination through your local dealer.

How do I upload once again a move accidentally deleted in Movescount.com ?
I can still see the moves in the logbook but there's no way to resync the move into movescount. This is very sad :-(

In the Suunto Ambit you can use the Find Back feature during the exercise by pressing and holding the Next button. After this choose Navigation and Find back. The watch will guide you back to your starting point. You can save Points of Interest in the watch during the exercise by pressing and holding the Next button and then choosing Location. You can save the location as a POI by pressing the Start/Stop button.

Question

Is there any foreseeable possibility of getting the current pace/pace alert ability in a future update?

I'd really like to be in love with the Ambit as opposed to come of the other options on the market, but the ability to set up pace alerts in exercise mode is a feature I'm really looking for. Is there any possibility of getting the feature in a software update in the near future?

Question

Manual time synch?

My job involves very accurate timing. It is not possible to zero the seconds on the watch at present (ie so a group can synchronise watches to a specific time). I know I can manually set the minutes, but this involves a lot of button presses. Any chance of an easily accessible "hack" function?

GPS timekeeping is a good idea, but when does it synch? Is it a set time each day, and if so what if the watch is always indoors at that time and can't get a fix?
It would be nice to see a manual gps time synch option.

Unfortunately at the moment it´s not possible to adjust the seconds on the Suunto Ambit, this feature might be available in the future updates. Please feel free to send Ambit software update suggestions to the address ambit@suunto.com. The Ambit syncs the minutes and the seconds once per day, during the first GPS fix of the day. If the GPS fix is not available, there will be no GPS time synch.

Question

Ambit PTE data

It seems (from my personal experience and from previous posts) that there is a major difference between the PTE data we get from Ambit, and the (TE) data we get from T-series (T3, T4 and T6 confirmed).

The difference is in the range of 0.8-1.0 PTE values. Or to put it in an another perspective: one needs to set the Activity Level value to 1 in Ambit, to get the estimates to match Activity Level 5 in T-series.

Now, Ambit might use R-R to estimate the PTE, and thus be more accurate. But let me put it this way: the Ambit would lead us to train MUCH harder than the T- series. Would it be safe to trust it?

answer 1
Peak Training Effect is a parameter that indicates the impact of a training session on your maximal aerobic performance (VO2max). If you select it to be displayed during your training, you can see the estimated effect of the session on your peak performance on a scale of 1 to 5, from minor to overreaching, during training. Peak Training Effect works best in medium to high intensity training at constant intensity level. It is not ideal for quantifying low intensity workouts. Base endurance training, regardless of how long and tiring the session is, will have a low Peak TE.
The measurement itself is the same as Training Effect was before. The main difference is the new name that describes better the ideal application area of the parameter: Dedicated for peak performance, not intended for measuring long, low intensity base endurance training. The mathematical modeling of PeakTE is fully developed by Suunto and optimized for Suunto devices.

Check if you see a padlock icon on the Ambit display meaning its keys are locked. If this is the case, you can unlock the keys by long-pressing the light button. Check also the backlight setting. If the "toggle" option is selected, the backlight stays on until the light button is short-pressed the next time.
