this morning I took a short run comparing my Garmin 910Xt and my Leikr (software 1.7.16). In general it turned out to be a quite happy morning
To be clear, we know we have still work to do, I just wanted to share my observations:
Here the two files:
Leikr: I left my Leikr in the charger overninght and this morning I took it off, switched to "active screen" by pressing the power key once, went out the door and got a fix with 8 satellites within a short time (about a minute).
Garmin: turned it on inside the house, went out, got a fix some secs before my Leikr, however pretty much the same time.
I purposely stayed for the first 4 km in an area of single family houses: here my Leikr and Garmin vibrated approximately at the same time. Same distance, instant pace difference between the watches around +/- 3-4 secs.
Semi urban canyon:
as you can see between km 4.3 adn 5.5 i went into a more dense area with narrow streets, sharp turns and buidings of 4/5 stories on both sides.
What I observed is that both watches got confused about my pace (I was keeping a constant pace around ~4,10min/km): but, while the instant pace of Leikr increased compared to my actual pace (readings jumping down to ~3.30 sec/km), the instant pace of Garmin dropped (redings up to ~5.30 secs/km). In this stretch Leikr suddenly got ahead of Garmin in distance logged of 70 meters.
Rest of the run:
Buidlings just on one side. Garmin and Leikr kept pretty much the same readings.
Garmin average pace on km 5: in Endomondo it is reported as 7:43 min/km, that is very far off. In Garmin connect the average pace is a more reasonible 4:15 min/km
Tracing on the map: Garmin tracing is in general less noisy and lines are much streighter (except in the "semi urban canyon" area). We believe that it can be achieved by adding some post filtering before uploading.
