I've been dubious about the current pace of my TomTom Multisport for a while but had confirmation on my last couple of runs. Last night, I ran a 5M time trial on a measured course and my TomTom showed 4.99M in 49'36", avg pace 9:56 m/M yet according to the pace graph, I would have been running most of the run around 10:15-45 or slower (http://www.mapmyrun.com/workout/441888851)
. Equally, I was running intervals on Tuesday, aiming for 8:30-9:00 m/M for fast intervals, which I think I maintained reasonably well. After I had to stop for a few seconds to open and close a gate, my pace for what felt like the same level of effort suddenly displayed as around 10:30. I had to go eyeballs out for over a minute for the display to creep back down to my target pace. During cool down, when I was jogging along very very slowly, it was showing 10:30 again. I may not be the best pacer in the world but I do know what the difference between 9:00 m/M and 10:30 m/M feels like and TomTom Multisports' current pace often does not reflect what I'm actually running at any given time. Does anyone else get this problem?
