  • Linux users and outdoor activities lovers could be personify in a same body. Suunto seems to ignore it. Please join the group if you'd like to use your suunto product on linux. A project has been started to reverse engineering a watch syncrhonization application and product an open source linux api, check this out and if you could help don't be shy!!

      Hello, 1000 members may not be that much but I guess we can only help by 1) Asking the Suunto Support for working on the Drivers (continuously) and the application. They have already prepared the Android version of the application so maybe they could somehow make the ver compatible with Linux and via Bluetooth (Ambit 3 - not sure about Ambit 2) and in the long term for USB connection. openambit - I have found the below: Cheers, Tom(U16.04)

        My Ticket to Suunto Support, Hello Suunto Team, I'm running with Suunto Ambit 3 for some time now, but there is one thing I would like to kindly ask for your consideration. You have prepared and released not that long ago the Android version of Suunto app, which can talk to the watch via Bluetooth. I'm a linux user and I would like to ask you to consider working and releasing either the port of this application to linux OS or encourage working on the official version of the drivers for Linux

        (with support for the USB connection). By the look of the movescount I have found the following group - Linux_User_Group which now has 1000 members which would be really delighted on seeing the above come true. There is an open source project called openambit, which was quite successful, but as they have to tinker out any changes you are making (and also still struggle to get over the version 3

        up and running) maybe you could spent some time with them and with that extra vendor help workout some solution to bring Suunto Ambits to the Linux Crowd. Looking forward for your reply, Cheers, Tom

      It's incredible, more than 1000 members and Suunto does not support Linux!

        Dude, 1.000 members is not much, compare with the size of other groups.

      Après avoir réalisé pluseirs tests, je ne parviens toujours pas à installer moveslink sur Wine. Du coté Openambit, j'arrive à lire les logs mais rien n'arrive dans movescount. (à moins que je n'ai rien compris ?)

      Merci de votre aide.

        Si quelqu'un a une idée de comment upploader" les logs sur movescount...

        (l'authentification se fait - car si je mets un mail bidon, j'ai un message qui signale le problème d'Auth). C'est vraiment l'upload qui pose problème.

        Suunto avait des soucis pour le téléchargement des moves, mais le probl`eme est réglé depuis quelques semaines. Les moves sont-ils bien chargés sur movescount maintenant? Sinon, tu peux forces l'envoi avec un clic droit sur le move dans la fen^etre des logs.

      Hello, Bonjour,

      Just joined the group few minutes ago. I've received my Suunto (Ambit 2S) this morning. And now I realize that the Suunto app is not available on Linux.

      I didn't yet read all the contributions to this group, but I hope that there is a workaround !

      Thanks EM

      (Ambit2S / LinuxMint / Runner)
