Using Stryd as power pod AND foot pod (inconsistent pace info on SA, PowerCenter and Strava)
So I have gone for a run today and did a little test.
- Stryd paired to Spartan Baro as power pod and foot pod with auto-calibration switched off right after paring.
- Spartan Baro GPS set to “OK”. I did this intentionally to make sure if Spartan picked up pace info from the imperfect GPS then I would know.
- Spartan would pick up pace and cadence info from Stryd, and display on watch.
- SA, PowerCenter and Strava would pickup pace and candence from Stryd
What actually happened:
- As expected, I can see realtime pace and cadence info on watch - good.
- SA, PowerCenter and Strava, all showed different pace info. PowerCenter should be the most accurate as data came from Stryd directly. Total distance, avg power, avg pace on SA are all consistent with PowerCenter. The lap summary screen on watch is also very close to PowerCenter. **However, the lap summaries on SA and Strava show very different pace info. **
@Joe-Hui Unless you set the Strava activity to “Race” the pace data will be coming from Strava’s algorithm that attempts to show moving time vs actual time. Set the activity to race and see how the numbers compare.
@Joe-Hui Strava does a lot of filtering as well, it is not useful for metrics…it is a social site.
Thanks. The remaining question is then why the lap summary in Suunto App can’t show the correct pace info. It looks like it gets the pace info from GPS instead of Stryd.
I had another run with the same setting today. And I am quite sure this is a bug of the Suunto App. While the watch can pickup pace info from Stryd (display when running, and lap summary after running), lap summary after running in Sunnto App uses the pace from GPS.
Is this a known issue? The attached screenshots are from my last run.
@Brad_Olwin thanks a lot!
sA issue . We are working on laps
@Dimitrios-Kanellopoulos yes please…
Will Intervals be considered as laps?
@suzzlo yes. Its a big feature coming
