Why Is My Garmin Not Tracking My Indoor Cycling Correctly?
If you’re an avid cyclist who also likes to mix things up with some indoor cycling, you might have noticed that your Garmin device isn’t always tracking your workout correctly. Here’s a look at why that might be the case and some tips on how to fix it.
One reason your Garmin might not be accurately tracking your indoor cycling could be because of the way the device calculates distance. GPS devices calculate distance by tracking your movement over time, so if you’re pedaling at a consistent speed on a stationary bike, the device might not be able to accurately track your distance.
Another reason your Garmin might not be accurately tracking your indoor cycling could be because of the way the device calculates calories burned. Again, because GPS devices track your movement over time, they might not be able to accurately calculate how many calories you’re burning if you’re pedaling at a consistent speed on a stationary bike.
What can you do to make sure your Garmin is accurately tracking your indoor cycling?
Here are a few tips:
– Use a speed and cadence sensor: A speed and cadence sensor can help your Garmin device accurately track your distance and calories burned by measuring your pedaling speed and cadence.
– Use a heart rate monitor: A heart rate monitor can also help your Garmin device accurately track your calories burned by measuring your heart rate.
– Use the indoor cycling feature on your Garmin device: If your Garmin device has an indoor cycling feature, be sure to turn it on before you start pedaling. This will ensure that your device is tracking your workout correctly.
– Use the treadmill feature on your Garmin device: If you’re using a treadmill instead of a stationary bike, be sure to turn on the treadmill feature on your Garmin device. This will ensure that your device is accurately tracking your distance and calories burned.
– Use the cycling dynamics feature on your Garmin device: The cycling dynamics feature on some Garmin devices can help you track your pedaling power, cadence, and pedal smoothness. This information can help you improve your indoor cycling workout.
By following these tips, you can help ensure that your Garmin device is accurately tracking your indoor cycling workout.
