Default Speed measuring with Forunner 201

I just got my Garmin Forunner 201. I use it for measuring the speed
during my running exercise.
The speed I measuring is varying during the exercise. This while i
think i run at a steady speed. The speed indicator is changing between
10 and 12 Kilometer/Hour. I like to see the speed in stead of pace
(wich has a smooth function)

Does anyone has any experiance to prevent this or has the same
problem.
The firmware version is 3.4

You can adjust the smoothing function which might help.

Otherwise, this seems to be a common issue with the Garmin. I pretty much
ignore that and focus on the mile (or km) splits. For LT runs, I have used
a 800m split distance to allow for me to adjust the pace in a timely manner
if I need to.
