I appreciate the somewhat recent inclusion of HR zones! However, it could be set up in a much more useful way, specifically, the way Garmin sets theirs up. First, they allow the user to select either percent of absolute HR or percent of heart rate reserve (HRR). Second, and what I’m lobbying for, would be to allow the user to fully customize their zones. For me, Zwift’s default zones are highly bottom-weighted, providing very low sensitivity to efforts at the top end. For example, I’m only able to sustain Z4 for approximately one minute. Customizable zones really should be quite simple to implement. Thanks for the consideration!
Yes, I agree. For me it is the other way around. Majority of my effort is within z4/z5
Please let us customize the zones.
I use Garmin Connect to summarise my training, and Swift give me totally wrong zones and are useless.
I’m not a programmer so I’m not sure how hard this is to implement, but being able to customize HR Zones within zwift would make me as well as a lot of people on zwift very happy. As smart and as well done as zwift is, I would have expected this to be a option. Having my metabolic tests done in a lab and knowing my exact HR zones is critical for my training. But with zwift not allowing a person to enter those zones into zwift, you always know the graphs in zwift are inaccurate for you, so you always know the HR info in zwift is a bit off which is a bummer. It would be so nice when looking at the HR graphs, you knew they were spot on. Thanks for your consideration. We LOVE zwift!
+1, I’d like this feature added as well. Thanks!
