these are my latest heart rate results :
As you can see, the first 20 minutes are more or less random values.
The remaining 40 minutes are completely okay.
I really do not understand ! I didn't touch or move the belt during the run.
I run the same track 4 times (each about 15 min.)
I'm normally not so much interested in individual values. For me it would be enough
to know the avarage and the maximum heart rate at the end. But both are not
Why are the values better during the second half run ?
It cannot be because of belt cleaning (I didn't clean it druing the run !).
It cannot be because of weak batteries (they don't get better...).
It cannot be because of external disturbance (same track !).
The only reason I can imagine is because of a bad contact between belt and
breast, which might improve because of sweat. But before starting, I always
make the belt wet. And I never had problems before with other watches...
Any more ideas ?
And bytheway... I think, filtering of spikes by software is not the solution !
This can be only a temporary workaround and if really neccessary, it should be
done by a software plugin like sporttracks - not inside the watch. So that
everybody can decide, if he wants to filter or not.
The goal should be to find the reason for this problem:
- Is it the belt, having problems to receive the heart beat ?
- Is it the belt, having problems to send the data to the watch ?
- Is it a problem of communication between belt and watch ?
- It is the watch, having problems to receive the belt signals ?
- It is the watch, having problems to process the heart beat ?
I'm still disappointed about this "feature" of the watch and in the
meantime, I'm afraid it will not be solved...
