Hi guys

Just went out for a little ride and noticed that strava is showing a different average power to my wahoo element bolt. The bolt is taking readings from my power meter (p2m ng). And strava is linked to the bolt. In strava it’s saying the reading is from power meter rather than their own guesstimate system, so I’m a little confused.

Bolt is showing 255w and strava 220w

Your Bolt might be ignoring samples where the power is 0 (ie, it's not including those samples in the avg power). There is an option to toggle this. Strava always includes samples of 0 power in the avg.
