Can you please work on making this compatible with Linux soon?
Hello, I've just purchased an Ambit3 Peak, but I can't upload moves from Linux. I'm using Ubuntu 16.10.
In a Windows7 VMWare , Moveslink2 won't start unless I boot in "safe mode", and then it doesn't detect the watch.
In a Windows7 Virtual box, Moveslink2 starts (in safe mode) and detects the watch, but when I click on connect to movescount, I get 2 error popup messages ("expected identifier string or number") when executing a .js script on movescount.com, and then does nothing.
I've also tried wine with no luck (it won't run the setup.exe), and openambit does not work either (even compiling the latest version from github).
It seems to manage to connect to the watch, says a newer firmware exists, reads the logs, but ends with "syncronization failed".
Does anyone manage to connect an Ambit3 Peak to Linux with or without a virtual Windows machine?
Ha, and I tried to use the Android app with no luck: connection fails most of the time, and it does not upload moves.
openambit says: libambit WARNING: get_memory_maps(): Failed to read memory map key
Last time I tried with openambit I got a message about watch model not managed. Now I am using without problems Windows in VirtualBox. What version of openambit are you using?
Just tried new version from git and I got the same warning message. Recompiling with debug enabled did not give any more information.
Running Moveslink2 in VirtualBox is working for me as well, I've had some issues when updating FW, so success rate isn't quite 100%, but I've always managed to finish it successfully with few retries. So far. Actually FW updates and some rare Openambit anomalies have been only reasons to test Moveslink2 from time to time for me, but I've been using Ambit1 mostly. For A3 I've only used Android app so far ( VBox for initial FW update).
(stupid 500 char post limit ...)
For testing Moveslink2 I've mostly used VM images from https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/vms/ , VirtualBox Extension Pack is a must; and I've always installed/updated Guest Additions as well.
Regarding openambit and A3 Peak, I find It highly unlikely that latest 2.4 FW would work with any (public) openambit branch at the moment.
Hi, after switching to Windows10 in VirtualBox, at least I manage to upload my moves with Moveslink2.
I've contacted Suunto support, and suggested they publish the spec of the USB protocol they use, to help openambit developpers. Still waiting for an answer :-)
As of the Android App, I'm still having trouble between the app and the web server. New moves in the app do not show up on the web server, and conversely if I use usb to upload a move, the app doesn't sync it. Weird.
Possible problem with Openambit; firstly make sure your settings are correct , right at the top of the screen is a tool bar. Secondly authorize the app in movescount.
A few days ago I sent a request to suunto support, asking for any plan about moveslink2 on Linux. The reply explained that there aren't many suunto users asking for it, but based on my request, he would heave submitted my request to the development dept.
You might do the same: send an email to suunto support, asking for moveslink2 for Linux.
Hello, this might be of interest to some of you: direct upload to Strava from Suunto Ambit/Ambit2/Ambit3 through an Android app
Advertized as "Time limited free beta" so it is free only for the time being, apparently.
