Suunto has technology to compensate for GPS accuracy problems. This technology is referred to a FusedSpeed. Almost all sports modes use this technology. When the watch uses FusedSpeed, it will not get accurate pace and distance from Stryd. For example, this a running mode which is using FusedSpeed (screenshot from Movescount, advanced view of the sports profile):
To get pace and distance from Stryd, a sports profile need to be created that does not use FusedSpeed at all. Follow these steps:
- On the watch, pair Stryd as a foot pod (if you have not already done so). Settings --> Connectivity --> Pair Device --> Footpod
- After pairing Stryd on the watch, go to settings --> Connectivity --> Paired Devices --> Settings. Make sure to disable autocalibration.
- In Movescount, go into watch settings.
- Under Sport Modes, select + to "Add sport mode to short list". Select "Unspecified Sport" to the list.
- Scroll to the the "Unspecified Sport" entry, and select + to create a new sport mode: "Create new Unspecified sport sport mode"
- Select fields and displays per your preference. For example:
- Go into sport mode settings. Force the watch to search for foot pods. To get the map of your run, you can leave GPS enabled. Your Suunto will still get pace and distance from Stryd. In the screenshot below, GPS is disabled which is not required.
- Make sure your Suunto is no longer using FusedSpeed:
- Sync your watch to update the watch with the new sports mode. When you go for a run, make sure to select the newly created sports mode.
- You watch will take pace and distance from Stryd!
