I didn’t see this addressed anywhere else so if I’ve missed it my apologies and please point it out to me!
I just started Zwifting in August and am still figuring it all out. I had finally figured out how to use my new Apple watch that I got in June as a HRM through the Companion app. I had been using it as such so my HR would show up while working out on the main screen on my computer and in Companion on my phone. But I was also using the Apple Workout app to track my workouts as well. It had been letting me use the two apps concurrently and showing the workouts in my phone Activity app under both categories but not doubling my calorie burn or anything. However, for the past month or two, if I try to start a workout in the Workout app, and then go to Companion to get my heart rate recorded there, it closes out the Workout app. I apparently can’t have the Workout app open while the Companion app is open. I have been searching online and don’t see anything about this issue and even was just playing around with it some more again. It is not just having 2 or more apps open together on the watch (which would be odd and pointless and hasn’t been an issue with other apps) but it is specific to the Zwift Companion app and the Apple Workout app conflicting with each other.
This isn’t a huge deal, but there are “challenges” in the Apple Activity app that you get credit for that only count if you record the workout in their Workout app and it would be nice to get credit for them.
Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue and if anyone knows if there is something in the works to fix it or some kind of workaround? I’m especially curious since I previously was able to use them at the same time so it hasn’t always been that way.
