Hi all

Anyone got a clue how to preload the Suunto watches with all of your training for the coming week?

Not just "Run for 45 minutes" but:

Run 45 minutes
1m w/u @ 8:00/mile
5 * 5:00 @ 6:45/mile, 1:00 RI
1m c/d @ 8:00/mile

Or for swimming, the full drills set, etc.
My garmin back on 2008 could do this.
I can now read a text message on the watch, but it can't do basic pre-loaded intervals???

I'm sure you're still at the stage where just exercising is improving Wink

What Suunto watch do you have? dcrainmaker comparison chart says you might not be able to create custom workouts, but some watches have an interval mode on them.

Interval Mode is considered a premium feature in most watches these days, whereas reading txt messages is a base feature unfortunately.

By Interval mode, do you mean using the Lap button in-workout on the 920 for example? (it gives you last rep time, rolling recovery time to next rep etc). I use that for swimming.

No, by Interval Mode, I probably meant Workout Mode, where you can program in custom workouts such as Poet. described. You can always hit 'lap' at the beginning & end of an interval, but your gps watch knows when you have run 800m and can tell you to stop, rather than you telling it.

The 920 can certainly do this, but many 'entry level' garmins have this feature removed.

What Buzz said!!!

And yes, Jorgan, Iím well aware of that. Unfortunately.
Seems like ďfeelĒ doesnít equate to easy HR. Which is about 6:30/km.

Having reread the DC Rainmaker review, itís buried in the comments.
But not overly clear in the text.

Damn.
