Ok, I know this is a silly question, but--opinions wanted. Ever since I've started running I've used my Runkeeper app for every run (except for the Color Me Rad 5k and Castaway Cay 5k). I know that it's been found to be a little off but it's what I've based all of my personal stats on.
For a way early birthday present, my parents got me a Garmin Forerunner 10. I used it on my run today. (Yay for finally getting the watch/shoe shot!)
I also used my Runkeeper app. And the stats were a little off
Stats: Runkeeper Garmin
Mile 1 10:01 pace 9:58 pace
Mile 2 10:07 pace 10:02 pace
Mile 3 9:51 pace 9:58 pace
Total 3.01 miles 3.00 miles
Avg. pace 10:00 10:00
Time 30:02 29:58
So not too much difference, except for the pace for each mile. Runkeeper started off at a slower pace by 3 seconds, then by 5 seconds but then suddenly was faster by 7 seconds (so jumped up 12 seconds).
And yes, again, I know this is super silly, but I keep track of my stats. Do I continue to use the Runkeeper ones since that's what all my old ones are based off of? Or do I start using the Garmin stats?
