Live Segments

Post by ANW »

I just saw that they are adding Live Segments at the5krunner.com (https://the5krunner.com/2020/04/30/stra ... ead-karoo/). Hammerhead also put out a video about it. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... =emb_title)
Seems pretty cool. I wonder how customizable it is though. Can you put power and gradient on the screen together with a Live Segment?

If you'd like my take on this, you can watch this. It's timestamped to the "start" of my Live Segments clip. Watch from there or all at your own discretion:

TL:DR(W): It's good, but not at all customizable yet. It "overlays" the bottom 1/3rd of the screen you're on, so don't put any data fields you care about in the lower third of the screen while a segment is in process. It shows the elevation profile of the segment while in it. It shows -- variably -- your PR, your "carrot" time, your "wolf" time and/or the K/QoM depending on where you are on the attempt.

I'll try to check back here and answer questions.
