Addiction 2021.4

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I rarely wear my HR watch to bed since my cardio doc tells me not to worry but I did wear it a couple nights recently to see if I was still running upper 30s while sleeping and I still am.

Throw it to someone. Maybe they'll catch it. Or maybe someone will catch it on a deflection. Or maybe pass interference.

Or try to bulldoze into the end zone. Or lateral it to someone else. Just don't do that.

during my 2 week Holter monitor test my low heart rate was in the upper 30's but I was on a beta blocker that lowers heart rate. Who knows what it is now that my fitness is hot garbage.

In a related note my mustard pickle sandwiches are still working for me. I will weigh in tomorrow or Friday and report the news

Heard from the Sram rep yesterday. She suggested using a different device to run the axs app from . So U used my work I phone. It tried a different version of the update. Still no worky worky. She then asked me where I am located, to see if there is anything she could do for me because of my no warranty situation.
and now we wait.....

Sounds like last page lockout, or lplo. Happens to me sometimes. Just post something and it will take you to the last page.

Garmin says its 52 as well, I think apple is getting it from garmin. I think I have everything synced up.

My three year old daughter is better with these devices than I am.

Hope it gets resolved. I didnt even know this was a thing.

Forgive my ignorance, but did you take it to the LBS to see if they could do anything with it? You mentioned the FD not shifting right is there any other kind of issue?

The first day I had my bike, I downloaded the app and I was trying to get my shifters to wake up. I kept pushing the button and didnt realize I was making micro adjustments. Rode it the next morning and the shifting was off, I could figure out why.

Nah, Apple almost certainly calculates it independently, as does Fitbit; neither would have the feature if it relied on users to have peripheral gear like a power meter.

Yup. I believe most wearables use an algorithm based on HR response to exercise and a set of population tables for age and sex. They derive a relationship and estimate the max, based on submaximal data. Probably accurate within a few points in most people.

Weight, too, but yeah, sounds about right.

Not surprisingly, my new Fitbit, which seems to do a poor job of reading HR on a bike ride outdoors, dropped my Fitbit VO2max estimate by 4 points or so. Bastards.

4 points being roughly 8%? Meh.
