I have a Garmin 305 and I upload the results to a variety of places for different reasons. However, which is the most accurate reading?
All uploaded directly from the watch with no adjustments -
Garmin Connect - 5.15mi @ 00:47:03SportTracks - 5.17mi @ 00:47:02Runkeeper - 5.12mi @ 00:47:01
Not much discrepancy, but I would expect them all to be the same....
The watch matches Garmin Connect - which I would expect it to.
I just find it strange that three different sites could have 3 different results from the same input.
Different web sites use different sources to measure distance. there are a number of different technologies and accuracies within those technologies. Also it's down to maths to some extent and so who has the most accurate calculating vehicle.
I also assume that there is some rounding up or down going on there.
Surely the onlysource is mr pie's garmin watch. What other source are they using-ketchup?
