Meter / Beat - MpG for the body


A way to measure efficiency in a car is miles per gallon or kilometer per liter. A corresponding measure for measuring efficiency of the body's engine is Meter per pulse Beat.</p><p></p><p>Running 15km/hour at a pulse of 150 beats per minute gives a Meter per Beat of 1,66. Biking at 30km/hour at 150 beats per minute gives 3,33 Meter per Beat.</p><p></p><p>An athlete trains to get better. That means, at the same pulse racing at a higher speed! The key is to improve the Meter per Beat measure.</p>

Just what I was looking for. Now I don't have to develop anything myself; which I won't and don't have the knowledge to do. Could the next version perhaps sence if I am running or biking? As stated before, the x-axis is very long of you are just running. I could almost not distinguish between a 6min/km jog and a 3:30 interval when it is on half screen. Bra gjort i alla fall!

On my 920XT it doesn't show the actual and average value as shown on the pictures...any solutions?

Great idea! This is really a cool app! One suggestion for the next version: Is it possible to make the x-axis of the histogram (automatically or manually) adjustable in order to display a more stretched distribution profile?

FInally! I have been experimenting with this particular measure by exporting data from connect to Excel manually, but that was only possible in predefined chunks of time (e.g. pr 1 km), or along repeated same routes. Difficult to extract meaning from. I noticed that during a run, the meter/beat reduced as I got more tired. I wonder if the scatterplot with beats on x, and meter on y will actually draw a well-defined line, which indicate the fitness shape you're in? I would be very interested in comparing these beats/meter scatterplots for different runs (maybe even more than the histograms that the app shows). Another input (which is probably more for Garmin): The data seems only available live on the run, where I have no time to analyze and think. Will data be made available in Connect or on the armpiece for postrun analysis?

Really great idea. Nice. Length of you 'race' will also affect result. eg 5k and 10k PBs will both have different meterBeats, I imagine. But it's also a good way to, for example, look at your CP20s - you might hit similar watts/distance as last month BUT this time with lower meterbeats. I used to look at a similar thing several years back.

this meter stopped the 920xt from syncing. had to remove it to fix it.
