I’m wondering about the optimal setting for recording my rides. My Garmin headunit allows me to record both datapoints either with or without zeros. From my understanding this does heavily impact (lower when recording with) the average values for both (cadence and power) as I guess averages are calculated over all datapoints available.
This leaves me with several questions:
What about Normalized Power and therefore IF? Do both get skewed or does the “normalization part” takes cares of this?
Are the values only skewed when displayed in the headunit? What I mean is, are those values (average/NP/etc) all recalculated from scratch by TR and if so: how - taking the zeros into accout ?
Any infos for garmin connect on that matter? I’d expect them to just display the stats of the fit file delivered by the headunit.
So thinking about this, I’d go without the zeros. Is there a case where I want to record data with zeros?
