Increase Power wheel update rate

The power wheel seems to update slowly compared to changes I power   I’ll step on it and nothing happens on the wheel. Then, it seems like after a few seconds it will jump to point at the new value. It should update every second just like the power number.

    I can't reiterate how important this is for those of us that use instant/1sec power as feedback. The way it is setup right now you would need to unnecessarily run two data fields (power wheel and separate data field for instant) which takes up valuable real estate.

    I think the best course of action is to enable all the same features for power on the graph as you would for a separate numerical field.

    Yes, some of us like the feedback that 1s or instant power gives us.

    Jim:  Is the planned feature to enable the user to customize the power averaging or to improve the "jumpiness" of the power wheel. 

     

    I  have not measured it, but to me it seems you are updating the power wheel every 1 second (1 hz).  Customizing the averaging will not change this.  One could increase the time to 10 seconds which would lessons the amount of the change, but would address the "jumpiness".

    The averaging has nothing to do with the update rate.  The average should be a running average so the average changes value each second as a new power value comes in. So, for example, if 5 seconds of power values are 100, 125, 150, 125, 100 the 3 second running average values are (0+0+100)/3 = 33.3, (0+100+125)/3 = 75, (100+125+150)/3 = 125, (125+150+125)/3 = 133, and (150+125+100)/3 = 125.  And so on.  So, the power wheel can be updated every time a new power value comes in regardless of the averaging.

    We have a feature request for setting the span of the power wheel (currently hardcoded to 3s average power). I will promote this just as a reminder.

    Because the wheel  is set to 3 second average.  Ability to change to different power average settings is what you’re looking for.
