GeneralWhen I give thumbs up on the most liked Moves it's not shown?
We try to keep the site as fast as possible we can for you. This means that some pages are stored so that updated information is not fetched from database. This makes the pages load faster. This is called caching. These pages are updated still quit frequently, so if you reload the page later it will show the latest information.
RegisteringCan I register without giving out my email address?
No, you need to use an email address. Movescount uses your email address to verify that you're a person and not a robot. (We don't like robots.) You'll also need it if you ever forget your password or have other trouble with your account. Movescount will never publicly show your email or share your email with third parties unless you have authorized us to do so (information sharing with research parties, for instance).
MovesI uploaded my exercise data from my heart rate monitor. Where can I see this data?
When you sign in to Movescount, the first page you'll see is the scoreboard
, where you can see your latest Move and a summary of all your Moves for the last 30 days. If you have uploaded new Moves from a Suunto heart rate monitor, you will see those Moves in the right-hand column in Scoreboard. Those Moves are marked with the star icon to remind you to fill in the details define the activity, journal about the workout, add a picture, etc. Click on it to fill in the rest. Can I set a default activity?
Yes. It is possible to set a default activity type for your new manual Moves and Moves you are synchronizing from you Suunto device. To do so, go to Movescount settings
and set the default activity by selecting one of the activity icons. I don't have a heart rate monitor. How do I create a Move?
Log in and go to the Scoreboard
in 'Private' section. Click Add Move button. Fill in your Move details and remember to press Save when you are ready. That's it! If you wish to add more details just press Advanced editing. Or try out one of the Movescount compatible mobile apps for iPhone
.I made a mistake when I was creating a Move. How do I edit it?
Open the Move. Under the Move icons you'll see an Edit Move button, press that. You're now in edit mode, where you can make your changes and corrections. Hit the Save button and you're done. I don't want to share one specific Move, how do I make it private?
There's no way to set a single Move as private or public. If you want all your Moves to be private, you can set your account as private in settings
, but the drawback is that you won't be able to take part in community activities like groups and events. How can I delete a Move?
In the Table view, find the Move you want to get rid of and press the delete icon. You can also just open the Move, and click delete! Ensure that you delete right Moves, there is no way to get those deleted Moves back.How can I add pictures to my Move?
It's easy to add photos if you have a Flickr account. Go to the Social media section in settings
and enter your Flickr screen name. After you have a screen name specified you will see your recent Flickr pictures as thumbnails when you edit a Move. You can select one or more pictures to be shown with the Move by clicking the thumbnail. Movescount will also show a selection of Flickr pictures near your location automatically. If you want you can also select one of these to be included in your Move. (Now, how about a story to go with the pics?) How can I add videos to my Move?
If you're a YouTube user, it's easy. Go to the Social media section in settings
and enter your YouTube username on Movescount. After you have a username specified you will see your recent YouTube videos as thumbnails when you edit a Move. You can select video to be shown with the Move by clicking the thumbnail. Movescount will also show a selection of YouTube videos near your location automatically. If you want you can also select one of these to be included in your Move. And remember, adding a story is good karma. Why I don't have a heart rate graph in my Move?
Heart rate graphs and other body parameter graphs are currently available for Suunto Ambit, Quest, t6/c/d, Suunto Fitness Solution and Realtime Events mobile app users. If you have Suunto t3 or t4 you can see your heart rate the moment you complete each lap. This makes it possible to create a rough heart rate or speed graph by using automatic laps. This works nicely for example during a marathon. If you have automatic 1 mile/km laps on, you are able to see nice graph of the whole run.My Suunto t6 Moves are missing some values
Check that all the measurements have been set "on" from your t6 settings (TRAINING-set log) or from Movescount GEAR settings
. If the measurements are set "off" the device will not measure those, and thus those are not included in the Move. The graphs of my t6 Moves are not shown completely
If the memory of Suunto t6 gets full during a workout, the summary data is saved to the device but data for drawing the graphs cannot be saved. Due to that the graphs, e.g. heart rate graphs, are not shown completely. Remember to check regularly that there's enough memory in your device or select the "Remove sent Moves automatically from device" option from Moveslink menu by right clicking the Moveslink notification icon.Where are my greatest Moves shown?
When editing a Move you can name it to be one of your greatest Moves. Greatest Moves are shown in your public profile. Your can have maximum of 5 greatest Moves per year.Why there can be differences between Suunto device and Movescount values?
Typically the device shows a smaller value because the data quality is sometimes not good enough to calculate accurately. The values would not accumulate/increase during such a period, resulting to a lower real time value. Movescount can partially reconstruct the bad data or estimate the correct information and calculate the values better. The discrepancies in HR values device vs Movescount are in most cases caused by low quality data transfer from HR belt. Slight differences can be then seen due to different calculating algoritms, smaller computing power in wristop and different filtering method on the raw data.
When the data quality is perfect (good skin contact with electrodes, moist skin, unhindered radio transmission between belt and wristop) there are very seldom any issues. Processing power on the HR monitor is limited compared to Movescount - this is why the calculating algorithms differ between Movescount and Suunto t6/other HR monitor. Also, sometimes the problems are caused by different setup. So please make sure your weight, height (etc) are identical with your HR monitor and Movescount!
There are some improvements coming, but they still don't guarantee that the values always are the same. Unfortunately different sources of error will still exist. Even in ideal conditions we can promise about 90% accuracy which leaves a +/-10% error possibility. So the numbers should not be taken as absolute values. Due to the way how they are obtained, they are always indirect estimates. Why I can't see my peak heart rate in Suunto t3 graph?
Because Suunto t3 does not record the entire workout beat to beat (unlike Suunto t6), the values in graphs are made using the lap average values. The peak value shown in Move details is measured at some point during the workout, but it's seldom the same as lap average.
Similarly, the average value in the graph is actually the average of the lap averages, and thus there can be a small difference compared to the total average. In order to make the graphs as precise as possible, you can set the interval value to 1 or 2 minutes or use autolap setting. This will give you a pretty accurate idea of your heart rate variation during the Move. The shorter the interval, the more precise the graph - and the more likely it is your peak HR is recorded.How can I export my Moves?
Navigate to My Moves in Private section. Select the Move you wish to be exported and press "Export Move". The Move will start to download, and you can open it in Excel or save it to your hard drive.I don't have a Suunto Movestick - do I have to have one to use Movescount?
No. Movescount can be used without Movestick. You can use any heart rate monitor or regular watch to record your Move and fill your Move manually to Movescount. Just hit 'Create new Move' in the Scoreboard or Moves application. But if you have a Suunto M4, M5, t3, t4 or Quest your Moves will be transferred automatically to Movescount with Movestick or Movestick Mini!I cannot find the correct activity from the list of activities. What do I do?
We have quite a selection of different activities available in Movescount but we don't have everything under the sun. If you don't find your activity from the list, try using tags for marking your Move with that activity. You can also send us feedback and ask us to add your activity.
SummaryI want to follow the mileage of my running shoes. How can I add a gear in Movescount?
There is no gear input in Movescount but there are tags! When you edit your Move, you can add your running shoes, bike, gym where you were, type of the training or whatever is important to you as a tag. Using the tags allows you to see summaries from a selected tag/tags. You can use the tag cloud (click tag cloud icon on top of the calendar) to select Moves containing a specific tag. Click tag name - and ta-dah - you will see a summary with the mileage and much more.Can I select a week/month/year to be summarized?
Yes, and that's is pretty easy too! First, open the calendar. Then select a week by clicking that small white arrow on the left side of the calendar. Select a month by clicking a month name and year by clicking the year on top of the calendar. Can I see a summary out of my running Moves only?
Yes of course. Just click the activity icon below the calendar and Movescount will show you the summary containing only the Moves with that activity. You can also select multiple activities in a similar manner!
Moveslink for your devicesCan I use Movescount with a Mac?
Yes. You can use Movescount with your web browser with Mac or any other operating system. If you have a Suunto device you can also install
the Moveslink software on your Mac to transfer all your Moves easily to Movescount. Moveslink can be used in Intel-Based Macs (for example, Mac Pro, Macbook Pro, or MacBookAir). Unfortunately Moveslink cannot be used with older Macintosh computers such as PowerPC. Mac computers made after 2006 are based on Intel processors, which are compatible with Moveslink.Why can't I connect to my other Suunto software after Moveslink installation?
Moveslink is occupying the connection and that's why other Suunto software like DM4 can't recognize your device. You should stop Moveslink if you wish to use some other software. You can do this by right clicking the small Moveslink notification icon and choosing Quit. Next time you want to transfer Moves to Movescount make sure you have the Moveslink up and running again! What is the small M-icon in the system tray?
That's the Moveslink! After Moveslink is installed, it will be shown in the system tray. You can click the small M-icon to open the software. If you connect your device to the computer, the software will automatically transfer your Moves to Movescount.How do I know if there's a new Moveslink version available?
Moveslink shows system tray notification message whenever Moveslink update is available. If you are a Mac user you need to have a Growl installed to see these notifications. Growl can be downloaded from http://growl.info

The settings are transfered from Movescount to device and of course your Moves with routes that you have done should be transferred from device to Movescount.Why my Memory Belt data isn't uploaded to Movescount?
Is the date correct in your Memory Belt? If you replace the battery to Memory Belt, you have to connect the belt to Movescount before using it. This will update the date to the belt. If you haven't done this before doing some exercise, you should look for your Moves from year 2000. Moveslink transfer only Memory Belt logs that are recorded after the last data transfer from the device.
ScoreboardWhat is Scoreboard? Scoreboard
is an overview of your recent Moves and activity in Movescount. From Scoreboard you can see if you have received any feedback for your Moves, what's happening in your groups and events, follow other members latest activities and see your next planned Move. You can also check easily your latest Moves and add a new Move.
PrivacyHow is the privacy working in Movescount?
When you register to Movescount you are a public member of the community. You have an option to set yourself as "Public", "Public for my groups and events", or "Private". The descriptions of these levels are the following: Public
Your username and a few other details are visible to other community members. Public members automatically share the Moves they create. This means that you can also share your Moves to other sites like Facebook and Twitter. As there are thousands of Moves in the service, there is no possiblity to know what are all your Moves that you have done. Moves by public members can be browsed in the Community - Moves
. Public members can communicate with other Movescount members, they can create or take part in groups and events and they can follow other members, provide comments and feedback to each other. You definitely get most out of the service if you are a public member. Public for my groups and events
Members that are public only for groups and events share the same information as public members but only for the groups and events they belong to. Groups can be created for your company, team, fitness club or just between a bunch of friends. When you are public to groups and events, only members of the same group/event can see your latest Moves. Private
Members that are private cannot share information with others. They are "invisible" members. Private users can see what's happening in the community but they cannot take part in anything fun going on. How can I delete my account?
If you for some reason don't want to use our service anymore and want to delete your account, it will be possible in the future. The possibility to delete a member account is in the development roadmap. Meanwhile you can just set your profile "private" so that other members are not able to see you or your Moves.
SettingsWhy do I need to tell my weight?
Your weight as well as other personal information such as birthdate and activity level is a crucial factor when there are values from measurements calculated such as calorie consumption. Without it, you won't get any accurate data. Don't worry, your weight will not be visible to anyone else. If you are training with a heart rate monitor your weight is automatically transferred to Movescount via Moveslink. I don't know my maximum heart rate. What do I do?
Don't worry. When you tell your birth year to Movescount, Movescount will make an estimation of your maximum heart rate automatically. If you are training with a heart rate monitor and, during hard exercise, you reach a higher heart rate - check the peak heart rate from the Move after transferring it to Movescount and update your maximum heart rate. What information about me and my Moves is given to health research?
Depending on the research, given information may vary. Information can be, for example, training times per week, average calorie consumption, or heart rate graphs. Whatever it is, it will never have your identity such as username or email attached to it! Only the numbers are collected. Why are you asking for my Flickr or YouTube account details?
Flickr and YouTube details are optional information. If you have an account on one or both of them, you'll be able to include your latest photos or videos to your Moves easily. Why are you asking my home location?
This will help us to provide you personalised views. For example the views to maps are centralised to you home location when drawing the routes. What is the target weight for Suunto M5 weight settings?
Target weight is the weight you want to reach and it's used as your target in device. This weight needs to be lower than your current weight, but in same time needs to be over your healthy BMI value. If the value is not in this range, it's not saved to device. How is Activity class used?
The Activity class is asked in settings section in Body metrics
. Activity class is described by how much exercise you are doing on a regular bases. The Activity class gives Movescount understanding what is your base condition. This is used when measured data from device (Suunto Ambit, Quest, t6 and Memory Belt) is analyzed in Movescount. This produces information like Peak Training Effect.
If you know exactly your MET value (Max Performance Capability) for example based on fitness test, select matching activity level to ensure that the measured information is correctly analyzed. You can read more about Activity class or METs in Running Guidebook: Training Guidebooks
GroupsHow can I create a group?
If you are a public user you can create groups. Go to Groups
. When you are signed in, you will see a "Create group" button in the top of the page. Just hit the button and follow the instructions. Can I join any group that I want?
You can join all public groups. Just hit the "Join group" button and you are part of the game.
EventsHow can I create an event?
If you are a public user you can create events. Go to Events
. When you are signed in, you will see a "Create event" button in the top right corner of the page. Just hit the button and follow the instructions.Can I attend any event that I want?
You can attend all events. Just hit the "I'm attending" button and you are in. And if you're attending an event that's not listed in Movescount, just create the event by yourself and let others know about it!
RoutesCan I import a route to Movescount?
You can import routes to Movescount in KML and GPX format by using the Route planner
tool.How can I add a route tracked with my mobile phone to my Move?
Import a route in KML format by using the route planner
. Save this route. Open the in which you want to have a route. Above the map you can find 'Select route' option. Select the route you just saved and you're done. We are planning to make this procedure a bit simpler in future (skip the need to use the route planner), but at the moment is the way to add a route to a Move.What does simplify route mean?
You can simplify the route in Movescount if it has more than 1000 track points. This is needed if you want to edit a route that has more than 1000 track points.I would like to see what happened in a certain point of the track. Why is this not possible?
The current functionality in Movescount does not support this feature. However, this is one of the features that will be developed while restructuring the Move component, starting on later this year. How can I export a track?
You can export a track from Movescount in KML or GPX format. You can do this by selecting 'Export track' below the map in My Moves or by selecting 'Export route' in route planner tool. I don't have a GPS. Can I draw my route on a map?
Yes you can. In Movescount there are route drawing tools available for you when editing a Move or in Route Planner
. For example in Route Planner you can search for your location, draw the route, and save it to your routes to be used later.
TIP! When you have saved routes, it is easy to attach them to your Moves.
Training programs What's the difference between planned Moves and a Training program?
In planned Moves
you can see all your future Moves you have planned for yourself. So, it can be a specific training program you have taken into use or just separate Moves you've planned for you. You can also add planned Moves in Training program planner as well as in My Moves via the calendar.
TIP! If there's a Move you do regularly, e.g. your weekly 10k run with your colleagues, you should save that to your Moves by dragging it to your Move list. That makes it easier to add it to different weeks!How can I take an interesting training program into use?
When you find an interesting training program from the community form Training programs
open the program and click the "Save" button to save it to your training programs.
Then go to Training program planner
, click the "Edit" button and select the week when you would like to start the training program. Then select the correct training program from the drop-down menu of that week and remember to save the changes. Now you have the training program in use and you can see your planned Moves in your calendar. Enjoy your Moves!How do I get a training program to my Suunto M5 or Suunto Quest?
You can transfer your planned Moves to Suunto M5 or Suunto Quest heart rate monitor by using Moveslink software. To do this:
1. Go to Training program planner
2. Open "My planned Moves" and click "Edit".
3. Check "Always synchronize my planned Moves to my M5/Quest" checkbox. Please note that you can see this checkbox only if you have connected your M5 or Quest to Movescount with Moveslink software.
4. Save changes.
5. Connect your device to Moveslink software. Moveslink will update your planned Moves to your heart rate monitor.

Basically no, but it's not really wise to overdose on tags, a few useful tags are better than a list of ones you'll only use once.
Suunto AmbitHow do I update the software of my device?
Your device will be automatically updated if there is an update available. To get your device updated:
- Install Moveslink application from http://www.movescount.com/connect/moveslink.
- Connect your Ambit with USB cable to your computer. Moveslink application will check automatically for updates. If update is found, your device will be updated.Do I need to register to Movescount.com to be able to update my device?
No. You can use Moveslink application without registering to Movescount. However, Movescount extends the usability, personalization and settings options of Ambit and visualizes the recorded tracks and other data of your activities, and therefore joining Movescount is needed to utilize the full potential of the device.Do I need to put my Ambit into certain mode when I transfer data between it and Movescount?
Please put Ambit in TIME mode when you plug it in to your computer. The data transfer is enabled in that mode only.It seems that my Ambit syncs the time from my computer every time I plug it in with the USB-cable. Is there a way for putting that sync off?
Yes, simply right click the Moveslink icon on your task bar and you get menu in which one item is “synchronise date and time”. Click that item to put this setting on or off.How can I navigate a track that I have previously recorded with Ambit and uploaded to Movescount?
You should first save the track as route by giving it a name in the associated Move in Movescount. Then you should select it to be synced with your Ambit from Gear => Navigation => Route => select “Use this route in watch”.Ambit uses only 1000 track points for a route. Can I transfer more accurate route to my watch?
You can use any size of a route you want in your Ambit. Movescount will reduce the number of track points to approximately 1000 points using modified Ramer–Douglas–Peucker algorithm that saves the most relevant track points of the route.Do I need to create waypoints to see the detailed route in watch display?
No, you don’t. If you don’t create waypoints Ambit automatically creates start and end points to which you can navigate.I use a journey planner that generates an KML file. Can I transfer that file to my Ambit?
Yes, you can. Use the import function in Route Planner
, give the route a name and check 'use this route in watch' tick box.I use Ambit. Why the track is not accurate on my hikes?
Suunto Ambit can record your track by using GPS in 1 or 60 second recording interval. If 60 second interval is used, the track is recorded once per minute (Trekking mode in Ambit). This way Ambit can track longer before the battery needs to be charged but also the track will be less accurate. You might notice some corners missing which can cause the total distance to be a bit shorter than it actually was.
