I received Karoo 2 unit, I still have my Karoo 1 so I mounted both on the bike for testing. The first results are disappointing on the battery life on Karoo 2, it's even worse than the Karoo 1 ?!
Last ride: both on full charge, same settings, data screen etc. and after ~3h ride, Karoo 2 had 8-9% less battery than Karoo 1.
What are your opinions and thoughts about the battery and the comparison to the older model? Something is wrong with my device, or actually the battery is even worse/similar than Karoo1? For me, the main reason for upgrade Karoo 1 was the battery, so at the moment I don't see much reason why I shouldn't give Karoo 2 back and stay with Karoo 1.
Else, I'm aware Karoo 1 shows the battery wrong sometimes, on 50-100% is slowly losing points, but the less battery, the faster it runs out, especially the last 20%. So looking at the whole battery life, Karoo 2 should probably last longer, but after all it doesn't look like an upgrade.
other differences in data:
-calculated Ascent is quite a lot bigger in Karoo 2
-Avg Speed, ride time, kilometers, this small differences it seems that result from auto pause. In Karoo 2 auto pause is much more responsive, for example when I walk with bike on ice/big snow, Karoo 2 recorded it, Karoo 1 was still on pause mode.
ps. That glitch on historical elevation graph It was not the first time for me, but it is only graphic and has no effect on the data.
