I’m relatively new to Zwift but steadily figuring it out. I’m stumped, though, by inflated elapsed times for my rides. In Activities, the Companion app is adding nearly half an hour to my actual finishing times.
For example, I recently rode two 90-minute Group Rides. Before each I warmed up for 6-8 minutes in the pen on the blue virtual trainer. Within a minute of finishing the 90 minutes, I clicked End Ride on the TV display and closed Zwift.
Instead of reporting my elapsed time for each ride as 90 minutes (1:30), the Companion app says 1:49 and 1:56, respectively. Where did the extra 19 and 26 minutes come from?
In the same vein, the timer on the TV display said 2:21 when I finished a 40-mile free ride. The Companion app says my time was 2:49, or 28 minutes more. My elapsed time on the TV was 3:37 upon finishing a 57-mile free ride. The Companion app says it was 25 minutes more at 4:02.
Is it possible to correct this so that the app displays my actual elapsed time?
BTW, all other ride stats seem to be in sync between the TV display and the Companion app – distance, watts, cadence, heart rate, elevation. The app only inflates the elapsed time. Thanks for any insights and guidance.
