I just used a Bontrager Interchange Dual band (Ant /BTLE) combined speed & cadence sensor with my Ambit 1. It gave erratic speed readings - speed keeps dropping low. Suunto Customer Services say it is a known firmware issue i.e. Ambit 1 doesn't function correctly with all speed cadence sensors.
Can anyone tell me if there are any combined (or separate) speed/cadence sensors that definitely function correctly with an original Ambit 1 please?
Hi all, just thought i would shoutout ;-)
Then shout it out loud
Hi all. Anyone else noticed the Calorie calculation on the Ambit Peak is very low. I climbed and decended 1800 feet this morning in 70 degree heat and I know I burned more than 164 calories! Weight, hight, gender and age all correct in my profile.
I agree & generally think this applies to a lot of these type of devices. I use Suunto, Garmin & Strava & all vary greatly. I take the highest to be the most accurate. Last year we'd spent an 7 hours climbing on Weissmiess, Saas Valley Switzerland. To the top (4023m) & back to the valley (hot & at altitude) in one day & I'd burnt off 2200 calories according to Suunto & we were probably on the move for 10 hours! I probably burn 1200 sat at my desk at work over a 10 hour period.
Thanks for the reply. I also use Garmin (cycling/training) and apps like RideWIthGPS, Strava and others including Viewranger. Varies considerably. It's a tricky one for the programmer's as our metabalism and Watts output are all different. However - it's still too low and (hello Suunto) needs a rethink.
Yes, when I climb to the top of Mount Everest, I found that the temperature is too low to cause the watch to stop working, but at that moment any data would have no meaning, calories is not important, the pressure is not important, the temperature is not important, as long as alive and happy!
