When using a compatible Garmin watch with your Stryd, power and other run data are recorded by your watch. We recommend that runners use the app supplied by the watch maker to sync run data (i.e. Garmin Connect). If PowerCenter is setup to sync with Garmin Connect, the data will flow automatically from Garmin Connect to PowerCenter.
Stryd also records your running data (up to 9 hours) on your foot pod. You can upload your Stryd data using the Stryd app on your phone. This will upload your run data to PowerCenter as well. This may cause your run to appear twice in PowerCenter. The data is very similar, but there can be small differences in data. This is because Stryd records data automatically as soon as the pod is activated, whereas your watch only records data when you start the watch.
The power data shows in PowerCenter is average for the entire run, so extra time can cause the average to drop. When you hover over the average pace icon in PowerCenter, you can select Elapsed Statistics vs Moving Statistics. If you select Moving Statistics, your average pace, power and other metrics will be very similar for both charts. Because of the algorithm used to detect movement, the data will likely never exactly match.
