WatchOS 7.0.1, Apple Watch Series 5.
I do not think this is the GPS problem that people have been exposed to, but I noticed while I was out on some outdoor races / rides that my pace seemed to be affected by the arm swing / accelerometer.
During one of my races, I noticed that the Apple Watch was quite off. The pace was 10:50, and I hit the usual mile marker where the Apple Watch would say I ran a mile in maybe 8:50. The Apple Watch showed maybe 1.3 kilometers.
I did some tests where I ran at my normal pace and swung the clock arm much faster. Pace went down to 6-7 minutes range while my actual speed did not change. Also tested this on a trip ̵
When I look at my workouts, I can see the GPS route. I guess it can pull from my phone? I’m not sure. I have my phone on all races / trips. But in any case, it seems that my outdoor races / trips were more accelerometer-based. some thoughts?
