VSPD - Vertical Speed Meter


Vertical Speed (VSPD) measure the vertical speed based on barometric pressure. </p><p>VSPD is much more than a simple datafield. It logs statistical information to the activity and shows the vertical speed as graph amd statistic in the Connect Mobil App or on the Connect Website. </p><p>* Enable data recording and presenting in settings(!)</p><p></p><p>VSPD is also known as: Variometer, rate of climb and descent indicator (RCDI), rate-of-climb indicator, vertical speed indicator (VSI) or vertical velocity indicator (VVI).</p>

What’s New

v 1.0.0 Supports now also GPS devices. Include support for vivoactive, fenix 5S and fenix chronos.</p><p>v 0.8.0 Correct bugs in Ø ascent speed LAP statistic. VSPD in LAP statistic will only be shown if LAP ascent is higher than 50 m. Statistic will exclude values during paused or stoped activity.</p><p>v 0.7.1 Correct Ø ascent speed LAP statistic. Set EWMA factor to 0.15.</p><p>v 0.7.0 New Functionality: Configurable in settings. Add Ø ascent speed in LAP. Add time in speed zones in summary statistic.

Finde ich auch - darum habe ich die App entwickelt. Es freut mich wenn sie auch anderen nützt. Bug Reports und Anregungen bitte direkt an Entwickler Kontakt (Email für Rückfragen nicht vergessen).

Very helpful tool, especially because VSDP is essential and not included in garmin standard data. Unfortunately the average vsdp it is only shown within the lap data not in general statistics. Also it is only visible when the website is used, the Connect app shows average ascend speed but the field is empty ("--" instead of the actual figure). If those bugs wouldn't exist, it would be rated with 5 stars.

Thank you! I listen to your feature request: I plan to add overall average vertical speed in the summary statistic in the next version. The next version will be made once I got more feedbacks and I have some spare time for that :-) Please note that Garmin does not allow non-native data fields to write a lap summary, therefore is no way to avoid the "--".

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
