Can you make the trainer difficulty setting in the app show an actual value along with the crappy analog slider

Pretty simple here, add the actual value the crappy trainer difficulty slider is set at so we know the actual value? Right now there is absolutely no way to tell in the ios app what the slider is set at; 10%, 18%, 33%.

I agree, I recently sent an email to Zwift support as I have been experimenting with the difficulty setting. Very frustrating that there is no percentage included like other apps.


Come on guys, reply and vote on this one!

I agree 100% with the 2 post on the thread. I would love to have a better way to know the value of the TD on Apple TV.

Please vote on this one :slight_smile:


Can markers be added to the trainer Difficulty scale? Maybe at 25%, 50%, 75%? or maybe every tenth of the scale?


Set it manually to the exact figure you want in prefs.xml. Or use zwift-preferences to do it with a UI.

Is this also an option for mobile devices or ATV, or just PC/Mac?

does it really have to be that precise?

PC/Mac I’m afraid.

I doubt is has to be, but it would be nice, and doesn’t seem like it should be too hard to add. This should be on the volume sliders, also.

It can be useful if you change it around. It feels like there’s a cutoff somewhere around 75 that feels substantially harder on most courses and going on the wrong side of that (whichever you prefer) is annoying.

I often switch to higher resistance when I’m expecting a fast flat sprint so that I don’t spin out…

Am I off base here? Trainer difficulty I thought basically just effectively flattens hill gradients. eg. at 50%, turns 10% gradient to feeling like 5%, a 5% gradient to 2.5%, etc. A 0% gradient would still be 0% if setting is 100% or 0%.

If you’re sprinting on a flat course, does Trainer difficulty really have any impact?

Markers for every 20% or 10% would help a lot. I use Apple TV so no way i can use “Zwift-preferences”.
Hope to see it soon.

This and a improved course elevation profile are features that would really make climbers and puncheurs happy.
