New "Dashboard" section on the website - Average Watts data seems incorrect for Activity list


(Brian Hill) #1

I’ve done a few rides now in Zwift, and on the “My Feed” section on the new website (the “Dashboard”) it lists:

AVG WATTS - 366
AVG WATTS - 410

… now I wish I could push 410 watts for the whole ride, but that’s definitely not the case. My strava dump of that ride:

http://www.strava.com/activities/237020439

… shows an average power of 166W with a max of 669W. Perhaps something is off in the way the statistic is calculated?

It’s been pointed out before. It looks like the website is applying the metric-to-imperial distance calculation to the wattage numbers as well as the distance numbers. Switch your profile from Imperial to Metric (or leave as Imperial and divide wattage by 2.2) and your wattage numbers will be correct. Definitely a bug.

That worked, had the same issue using imperial. Thanks Noel, appreciate it!

You mean I don’t really average 550 watts for an hour? Bummer. I quit :).

Hmm, very interesting. Yeah, that’s deffo a bug. Do you think you could send in a ticket via the link near your name up top? Thanks!

Ticket sent.

I though the avg watts looked about double of reality.
