Today I tried second sport app – Running. Again, I have compared it with my Suunto Ambit2 S during a short 10 km run. First, a comparison of HR records.
There is a comparison of the final route records:
|Suunto Ambit2 S||MS Band|
|Distance||10.06 km||9.45 km|
|Average HR||172 bpm||159 bpm|
|Average Pace||4′ 22″||5′ 12″|
|Recovery Time||44 h||72 h|
From the table, you can see, there is quite big difference in distance, which is maybe because of bad GPS signal under trees (this affects pace calculation too). As you can see from the graph, there are gaps in it. It was probably caused by moving of Band on my hand, so the heart rate was not recorded correctly. Finally, recovery time calculated by MS Healt is almost twice bigger.
I don’t know why, but even the GPS was on, it was not synchronized into MS Healt and I can’t see the way in it.
This is the first bigger problem which I have. The Band is not water resistant, so you can’t use it for swimming or in shower. It is probably because the batteries which are on the band sides and they are covered by plastic lid which is srcewed (see figure bellow).
The problem of the water resistance is a sweat which is aggresive and can damage Band rubber parts. In every sporttester manual is written that after training you should clean it with water and soap to protect it. But you can’t do it with the Band fully
