This afternoon the Black Knight, anger as a drunk gorilla, tested again that stupid Garmin. He decided to split the scheduled 17 km (10,5 m) in 2 different parts: a lap of 10.6 km (6.6 m) + 6.4 km. (3.9 m). The lap of 10.6 km is measured accurately for this reason is perfect for a test:
- at the 5 km (3.1 m) the Garmin said: km. 6 (3.7 m)!
- at the 10.6 km (6.6 m) the Garmin said: km. 11.5 (7.1 m)!
- consequently for the difference of 5.6 km (10.6 - 5) the Garmin said: km. 5!
It means 20% of error on the first 5 km (3.1 m); 12% of error on the second 5.6 km and 8,5% of error on the total lap of 10,6 km (6.6 m). I think that in these conditions the Garmin is pointless because I can be more accurate, knowing my pace, only checking the clock!
