Hi Everyone. I own the pacer only for 2 weeks and I am a little bit confused about the pace. Generally the Micoach Pacer gives me an average pace of 7min10sec of my runs, which is very poor value. I thought that I just started running so probably I am so slow... But two day ago I used the Runkeeper app on my phone to record the route of my running by GPS. This app gave an average pace of 6min 5sec which is seems lot better. My question is that which one is closer to reality? And why is Micoach Pacer showing me other value?
Thank you for your help in advance!
If you think the Pacer is clocking you as slower, then the distance being measured is probably off. You might want to calibrate your Pacer. Here's a tutorial which shows you how to do this:
You'll use a completed workout whose real distance you know. If you are often running on a treadmill in the gym, then it is best to use a completed workout from off the treadmill for your calibration. If you are running mostly outside, then a test run out on a track is a really good option.
Also in general regarding placement, you need to make sure the Stride Sensor is firmly clipped into place in the lace clip on your shoe. The adidas logo must face up and try to place it as far down your shoe as possible (towards the tip of your foot). This ensures the best data collection possible.
Let me know if this helps you out!
