Can I chose zPower over my Cycleops Powerbeam Pro for power/watts?

Out of curiosity today, I unpaired my Powerbeam Pro in Zwift and chose Garmin GSC speed (and cadence) sensor in lieu of power. Game started and no power, no rider movement. How does one establish zPower?

A Powerbeam pro is a smart trainer, so I doubt we’ll ever implement a zPower formulation for it as its resistance will vary. You should continue to use it’s power broadcast as your data source.

Agreed. I’m waiting patiently for Zwift to fully support my Powerbeam Pro. I need Zwift resistance control to fully immerse myself in the game. (i.e. generate sufficient w/kg to be competitive - I spin out my 53-11 too easily now)
