    For me it’s not about running, but cycling to and from work for a few hours a week. I don’t want to use an activity profile for that kind of activity, and mess up my VO2 max on my city bike, but I do want to measure my OHR during those hours. Even with 5.75 (and 4.11 sensor) OHR is more often than not off by 50-60 bpm during cycling. I even get inactivity warnings during cycling when my heartrate is actually 140+. If Fitbit can get this right in a 100 dollar tracker I don’t understand why we have to accept this?

    (and no: wrist placement is not the problem here, as I’ve learned I can start an activity profile (e.g. indoor cycling) when cycling and from that point my OHR tracking is accurate. Funny thing is I can stop and delete the activity after a few minutes and after that the outside OHR stays accurate for most of the time).
