Best options to Upload Treadmill Activities?
Every time I search for information about getting accurate treadmill data into Strava I see a lot of post about "manual entries", which is not at all what I'm hoping to accomplish.
I'd really LOVE a way to get my treadmill runs, the distance, the paces (I don't run the entire run at one pace) and heart rate information to upload into Strava. In the winter, 90% of my running is done indoors, and I'd love to have some benchmark data to see how I'm doing!
I have the Suunto Ambit3, which supposedly is good at estimating distance based on Cadence but I find that it's completely inaccurate for me. I run very differently on the treadmill than outdoors, so the distance never comes out right.
In the past, I've exported the .gpx file, and painstakingly edited the file to add 'accurate' distance to it under the assumption that I only change the speed once every mile (which I have to calculate how many data points there are between miles, based on the average pace of the mile). It works, but takes a long time.
I'd love for some data junkie/techie to share what they know about this problem! Is there a foot pod that works with the Suunto Ambit3 that would make this more accurate? What about the new Apple Watch (or the previous ones). Is there a footpod that works with that, that can be imported into Strava? Do any of the devices (Wahoo?) that connected to the iPhone, allow for the tracking of distance, pace, and heart rate in a format that can be loaded into Strava?
