Why does my data look different on Strava?
Most social fitness platform have their own unique way of processing data. We are confident in the algorithms behind our analysis and believe that we are representing your data in the most accurate way possible. If you are seeing major discrepancies, it could be a result of the quality of data you are recording. Here are some helpful tips for recording the best possible data: 
  • Use one second recording intervals
  • Give your device plenty of time to acquire a strong satellite signal before starting to record 
  • If you’re using a phone, close all other open applications
  • If you’re using pause/resume, make sure you do so consistently throughout your entire activity
  • Make sure your device has a clear and unobstructed view of the sky throughout the activity
My points aren’t adding up correctly.
