When I’m walking or hiking, my Apple Watch running Strava displays my instantaneous speed, updating once per second. However, even when I’m walking at a consistent pace, the speed value dances around the true figure, forcing me to take a mental average and discard outliers. 

Suggested feature: display a smoothed speed on Apple Watch during activities. For example, display the median of the last 20 seconds’ worth of measurements, or speed calculated over the last 1/16 mile or whatever. 

I am much less interested in the watch’s idea of how fast I’m going at this exact instant, especially when there is a significant amount of noise in the reported data. I’m much more interested in my current accurate walking/hiking pace over roughly the last half a minute. 

Thanks for providing this forum!
