Garmin vs Strava pace calculation

I use a Garmin edge 530 and when I upload my rides to strava my pace is always slower on strava than is is on garmin. I noticed today that my move time on garmin was 1:25:31 and on Strava it was 1:26:46. Anyone have any idea why the inconsistency in data between the two?

Strava autopauses at a slower speed (hence later) than garmin. If you do a ride without stops both Garmin and Strava are identical but that’s not often possible.
