I was wondering if anyone had come across any research into the accuracy of the power data produced by Stryd foot pods? Coming from a cycling point of view I have become accustomed to the reliability of certain power meters.
I have just started using a stryd and I’ve noticed the power data is slightly higher than my cycling power. I’ve read that this is normal. I guess my question is whether anyone knows the +/- tolerance to the power data from stryd?
I have come to this question because (prior to Garmin’s recent change) the kcal and kj expenditure for a given workout was fairly similar when I did a cycling workout. However the kcal v kj expenditure during a run is considerably further apart since I’ve started using stryd for running…as much as 30% higher for kj. As kj is mathematically linked to the power output I was wondering if anyone knew of +/- tolerance data.
