I bought an early version Stryd off eBay as I was hoping it would stop me having a bouncing reported speed that the NPE Runn was giving me.
Unfortunately that problem remains so I think it’s fair to say my treadmill has issues with offering a consistent belt speed.
The issue I have is that the Stryd is reporting a speed way off reality. With the treadmill set at 8mph it reports I’m at 6.3mph.
Stryd insist you shouldn’t calibrate the device.
I’m in tune with my running pace and I’m happy the treadmill is running close to the reported speed.
If I calibrate the Stryd with Zwift it’s close to the treadmill speed with the bouncing speed.
However at the same time I had it linked to my Garmin and the pace was giving about the 6.3mph mark.
I’ve bought this as it’s supposed to be the best out there. I’ve contacted a few people who say it doesn’t need calibrating.
Have I got a duff one?
