- Strava stats vs map my ride stats (or Endomondo)
So decided to run Strava an MMR together too see what’s different.
Both recorded similar mileage (9.4 vs 9.51).
Average speed similar but Strave much higher top speed
Huge difference is estimated calories though. 589 vs 1005!
Seems like a huge difference in calories!?
What does everyone prefer? Never tried Endomondo but seems like another alternative.Posted 11 months agosarawakMember
No way that any figure for calories used can be anything other than a guess. So many imponderables in the calculation that it is better to ignore it altogether. Either that, or if you must have a figure, just use the same method every time. It still won’t be accurate, but will be reliably consistently wrong!!!Posted 11 months agotrail_ratMember
I assume two different phones of the same model to give any kind of comparison …..
-and a control set of different phones with the app also running.
We all know the answer is which ever gives the bigger figures for bragging rights
Or no wait the correct answer is to toss and coin and use which ever you like the colour of best.Posted 11 months agoampthillSubscriber
The only thing that I know for sure is that Strava is better for height gained. It takes your route and then applies it to a base map. The elevation is then taken from the map. Well I think it does that if I suspects your height data is wrong. You can force it to go back to the map after the upload
Calories is a guess. But I think the higher numbers includes extra metabolic activity after the ride, the lower one might just be the ridePosted 11 months ago
