KAYAK Fitness tracker/ kayak stoke doctor.

Looks like a cool gadget. Too bad it doesn't also measure output power. That's what I need for a paddling optimization study I'm trying to do. I'm trying to determine how much to glide between strokes so as to minimize average power for a given speed.

Some of the hype is garbage, though. For instance, here it says:

The company claims the technology has been proven to increase speeds up to 4x for amateur kayakers and up to 6x for professionals. Wonderful. When paddling fairly hard I go at about 5 knots. With this gadget teaching me I'll increase my speed to 20 knots (5 x 4)! :D
