Just did another scheduled work session.
Started off like before, the wahoo was lower than my Quarq by about 30 watts. Warmed it up and did a 30 minute rep, wahoo was set to 312 and Quarq read 309 for that rep. Not bad. I chose 312 because 310 felt off.
Second one, nightmare. I don't know if I was drifting down, or if the Quarq was confused for the first time ever, but the Kickr was at 310, heart rate was 160, Quarq was reading 290 range but my RPE felt way off (too hard).
Cooled down, lowered tension on the belt but it was still off. I tried a quick calibration of the Quarq when I saw this started and no luck.
I'm not sure how to proceed. I'm ready to bag this experiment. The second rep, per the numbers, was actually accurate, but I can't believe the Quarq was that confused. I'm leaning towards possibly a me issue but have no symptoms to back it up.
So the KICKR was reading lower than the Quarq in the beginning? That's interesting. So you are theorizing that it needs time to "settle in".
Seems strange that the Quarq would all of sudden become a problem.
Can you post a pic of how you are adjusting the belt tension... I'm curious... and may want to play around with mine as well.
