I have been looking at how my Kickr power compared to my Vector, there is a whole tread dedicated to this. in this exploration i have discovered that my various Garmin devices appear to have a lot of random drop outs when recording. I initially thought this was coming from the Vector 2s, but now see that both my Edge 520 and Fenix 5X are recording drop-outs and therefor giving me different power results at the end of a ride.
below it he power and cadence file from the Fenix 5x
here is the same workout recorded on TrainerRoad
I have done a factory reset on the Fenix and still see the drop-outs, is the TR software smoothing out these drops, or should I be investigating this with Garmin? on the outdoor rides I have already seen a 30 TSS difference between my watch and edge head unit on a single ride with very different NP / AP / TE values.
Has anyone had any similar experiences? is this just a ANT+ vs Bluetooth connection issue? (TR connects via BT, the Garmins are connected via ANT+)
