Okay, I tried Wahoo Fitness for Android Sunday evening, along with Strava. Yup, Wahoo Fitness is much improved.

As you noted the auto pause/resume can be reactivated by walking around, and there doesn't appear to be a threshold setting -- some apps allow setting a fairly high threshold of speed, around 5 mph, to distinguish between riding and walking. Strava's threshold appears to be fairly high.

But I noticed when I uploaded both to Strava the data were nearly identical. So Strava is able to interpret Wahoo Fitness data to determine where the pauses should be so those slowdowns are ignored and not counted against the average riding speed.
