Just starting out on Zwift, I have a bike set up but found out I can use my Apple Watch as a sensor for running. I don’t have a treadmill but have been jogging on the spot and it works fairly well. I am getting wildly contrasting MPH readings though and if I accelerate it doesn’t really pick that up. Anyone else using an Apple Watch as their only connect with Zwift? Have you found a good arm technique to make readings more accurate?
I have used it when I first started using Zwift for running and found it worked ok for pace, it was within 1-2/10 of mph. It would occasionally lose the signal for a second or two. Its a great way to get started and see if you want to continue using Zwift for running. I eventually moved to the Milestone run pod because of the intermittent connection problems and had problems connecting with that too. Now I use the stride runpod and am very happy with that.
But to get started the apple watch works fine. If you have problems you can always upgrade later.
Great thanks… really enjoying it so far and have lost a couple of lbs of COVID calories in a week!
