I am in a smart trainer. I have banked over 3000 miles almost daily since feb 2021 using my Apple TV, companion app, iPhone and iwatch! I am also a tech geek and have run diagnostics on everything! Even pulled my tech geek husband in and everything I did is exactly how he would trouble shoot.
I have made sure all my iOS is current, all devices are running latest app updates, my smart trainer firmware is up to date and working perfectly outside of zwift. It is absolutely a glitch with the new update With Apple TV.
I have even factor restored my appletv and it didn’t fix the glitch. I uninstalled and reinstalled apps and didn’t fix glitch. I shut everything down and disconnected everything and turned everything on and reconnected everything & didn’t fix the glitch.
This has happened once before and you guys sent out a patch because it was a program glitch and then everything worked senseless after the previous fixed update fail/fix months ago.
In The mean time until you guys figure it out and send out a patch all of my stuff is working perfectly through the iPad and companion instead of the Apple TV and I have to mirror screen. I use companion app for my hr monitor so I am not willing to only run smart trainer with cadence and skip hr monitor.
In addition to my smart trainer throttling all my watts efforts to 75w it also was random disconnecting my iwatch, then my trainer and erg mode in workout got stuck off when I try to turn off and back on to try to fix being throttled.
As far as changing gears in erg it actually is necessary under some of the workouts. if I am going from a high cadence lower watts to a very low cadence higher watts and stand as the program cannot match the resistance with the trainer and that has always been the case. (can’t throw down 290watts on a small ring at 65watts-nor this down 100-105 rpm on big ring high gear) and I won’t jeopardize blowing my knees!
BTW Many people are having these problems since the update launched it is all over all the zwift riding groups.
I await the next update or patch…
