Controllable not pairing on Mac using companion

Just about fed up with Zwift if it’s not Apple Watch issues now this. Zwift on my iPhone pairs my Wahoo trainer as controllable but not on Mac since this last update I did yesterday. I use companion to drive Zwift on the Mac. Any suggestions? Thanks and ride on.

Hi @Jeff_Guettler9580 welcome to Zwift forums.

  1. If your iPhone still has Zwift running - it’s possible that the trainer’s Bluetooth signal is already bonded to that, and that’s why it’s not found. Pleas shut down your iPhone and wait 2 minutes so our server will terminate the session on the iPhone.

  2. If the iPhone is not running the Zwift app - you may have to reset your laptop’s Bluetooth module. Please follow the steps in this Support Hub article and let us know if that resolves it?

Thanks this didn’t work.

Is there a sequence I need to try? I think I tried them all

On Mac I started Zwift with phone turned off and in setting switched from USING companion to Bluetooth and it recognizes the WaHoo snap but not as controllable.

I shut down desktop app and open swift on my iPhone and it has the kickr as controllable?

I just can’t get the Mac to be controllable?

Pls help. Thx.


Same but with Windows 10 and iPhone. Restarting iPhone does not help.

There is a sequence of sorts - you have to pair to the Power signal first. then to the Controllable signal. At each step, there may be a lag of 5 - 10 seconds for the Bluetooth signal to appear. Be sure to give it some time.

Lastly - some laptop users plug in an inexpensive ANT+ USB dongle and prefer to use that instead of the Blueooth signal. Since your Wahoo also broadcasts in ANT+ you might consider that option.
