edgePower - Estimated Power Meter for Cycling

Description

TRY EDGEPOWER PRO: https://tinyurl.com/4j7eyahb</p><p>This Data Field estimates the power used in order to move your bike against air resistance, rolling resistance, accelerations and hills. </p><p>It's designed to work with road bikes and was created because I was not satisfied of the alternatives available, both concerning power accuracy and battery consumption. I'm sharing it since the results are good and it really helps to pace yourself, especially uphill, try it!</p>

Great app for cyclists who don't own a powermeter! Sometimes I get 0w while pedalling but the strong face wind maybe the cause? Regardless, it seems quite accurate.

You’re right, a strong headwind and/or a sudden deceleration may be the cause of that behaviour, it can’t be perfect. However, the computed average has been shown to be quite close to other sources. Thanks for your feedback!
