I got an Ambit2R as a gift. Nice gift, except I normally only use Linux, and can't deal with the pain of having to look for a windows computer, install moveslink in there, identify myself, etc... just to change some setting for an exercise :-( I have installed and use succesfully OpenAmbit for one-way synchronisation from the watch to movescount. Thanks to the people who developped it! But shame on Suunto, a Finnish company, that does not support Linux, a Finnish invention...
Dicton de Finlande : " Avec une faucille d'argent, on moissonne des épis d'or." est-ce vrai ?
Je continue de chercher de partout... mais le proverbe finnois " Avec une faucille d'argent, on moissonne des épis d'or." me parait de plus en plus erroné, la faucille n'est pas à la hauteur car le métal est inadapté ! quand est-ce qu'ils vont s y' mettre pour assurer le travail jusqu'au bout ?
Je reprend l'idée de Patobreizh plus haut, même soucis avec une Nepal Edition, Ambit Peak 3 : pas reconnue bien que détectée par openambit 0.3....
La montre me signale " Update with Moveslink", mais en parallèle Openambit indique "device not supported yet"
Du coup rien à faire pas de transfert.
Je pense bien à VM ou Wine, mais ça me gave, voir W. me gonfle.... même par le biais !
J'ai contacté le sav des finlandais (TB par ailleurs) , mais rien pour Linux ...finlandais....
Any progress with WINE or otherwise? I can't get USB to work on Virtualbox :/ I also took a look at openambit, but it looks abandoned. The comments are spammed and there is no progress. Has anyone find a working way w/o dualboot? I can't see the point of buying Microsofts Nagware in order to use my expensive watch.
I think using Virtualbox really is the easiest solution. To get USB working, make sure you have Guest Additions installed and that your username is in the "vboxusers" group. For the latter, you have to run the command: sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers your_user_name
You then just connect the watch, right click the usb icon in the bottom right and select your watch.
Openambit works also.
Yes Openambit is nice
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: https://github.com/openambitproject/openambit/issues/54
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 https://github.com/openambitproject/openambit/issues/54,
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,
