A few Apple Watch & Health Questions - disable AW HR? Health priority?
I have a couple of questions regarding using Strava on the Apple Watch series 2 if anyone has any answers or insight please. Te below relates to my bike ride.
Firstly, i have Strava on my IP setup to use my Wahoo HR strap, so i guess this is what is used / recorded in the Strava activity results. Is there any way to disable the apple watch heart rate monitor when using Strava on the watch / IP? Why can't the watch just use/ display the HR from the iphone App and Wahoo HR? Since i am already getting a record from my HR it seems unnecessary to have the watch doing the same and using battery power.
Would pairing my Wahoo HR strap to the watch rather than my IP help? Although as i understand it, if i did so, HR data would not go into the Strava app on the IP but just be displayed on the watch screen right? (am assuming what the apple watch records goes to workout / health but not strava?)
In apple health, Active Calories, after my ride, i saw 180kcal from my Apple Watch, but Strava has 450kcal - does it make sense to set strava as a primary source, since the kcal data with strava, my Wahoo HR would be accurate? How is the discrepancy in kcal accounted for?
Does apple watch / iphone record steps simultaneously while im recording a ride?
Any help much appreciated! Was using all this together for the first time today, hence all the questions.
