Power Meter and Smart Trainer connections

At this time, connecting both a power meter and a smart trainer will result in poor trainer control.   

These are the options to connect these devices:

Smart Trainer Control

For ERG to be available, you must choose to connect to your smart trainer:

Both the control Trainer_control_icon.pngand the power power_icon.pngicons must appear on your smart trainer.  Also, note that the power meter is not connected.

This connection will also allow you to switch between ERG and Level Mode.  

For more information on connecting a smart trainer, please refer to the following links:

Power Meter Display

If you choose this setting, you will not have ERG control from your trainer or any levels for Level Mode. The app will read the power from your power meter and display it onscreen.  Your trainer's resistance curve will be the default curve assigned to your trainer by the manufacturer. (This is usually level 2 or 3)

Virtual Watts Users

If you are a Virtual Watts user and you have a power meter, we recommend you use the power meter as described above and not use Virtual Watts.  This will give you more accuracy.  For proper connection instructions, please see Connecting a Power Meter (Bluetooth) or Connecting a Power Meter (ANT+).
