Polar + Suunto: Proof of something new planned? :: Speculation with a BIT of evidence

Thanks to @nikaranov for this link to a registration on the Bluetooth SIG site. I’m not sure exactly what it is, possibly the registration of a new Bluetooth product or maybe a variant of an existing one.

I imagine the revelation that ‘polar are working on a new product’ is not so surprising. However the SIG registration may signal the IMMINENCY of such a product.

Also interesting, below, is Suunto’s new ANT+ and Bluetooth speed/cadence sensor on https://www.thisisant.com/directory/. Does this mean they are planning an AMBIT4 that is compatible again with ANT+ sensors? Or is it just merely a sensor that is backward compatible from the Bluetooth only AMBIT3 to the BTLE and ANT compatible SMBIT2.

    • @Greg. yes there’s quite a few similar looking ones out there … some look like garmin, some like MIO Cycle etc etc. there must be some factory or three in china churning them out by the 1000s

  1. i’m not surprised at all!

    The suunto sensor (speed/cadence) will look exactly like the wahoo rpm … they’re made by Dynastream (owned by garmin). That’s the reason why all the foot-pods look the same (Garmin, Suunto, Adidas, Wahoo rpm). The only difference is the chip/software inside (ANT+/BT_smart … or both).
