How is the PowerCal any different (why is it better) than a Heart Rate Monitor?
- First, it introduces the relationship of a dose vs. training.
- The PowerCal contains an algorithm that is sensitive to acute changes in Heart Rate (HR) and can account for rapid changes in power output.
- It translates conversations into the vernacular of power training: watts, kilojoules, peak power, FTP, etc.
- Current power meter users can now have uninterrupted training load data for activities where power meter data may be unavailable, like commuting or MTB riding.
