Dual recording power
Sadly Zwift power decided to remove uploading dual recorded power files for analysis due to technical/stability issues (as far as I understand).
I want to clarify that I’m not trying to put pressure on the people of ZP.
I’m thankful for their work, still a happy user and respect them very very much!
Could we get dual recording in Zwift? Let Zwift record 1 primary and 1 secondary power source. Have it let show a similarity score in %.
This way Transparant people like myself can show what we do is real. Not that I’m a pro or even in the A groups but still I like to back up my numbers with some proof of realness. (And I hate losing to people I know from IRL that couldn’t win even if they had their best day ever and I had my worst)
It could show double ︎ ︎ in green when between 100% - 97% (fine/acceptable)
in orange when between 97% - 95% (calibration needed/warning in races)
in red when below 95% (calibration needed/ DSQ in races?)
If already seen comments like:
“Only for the rich/pro’s”
But basically, it is the same as Zpower vs Real power.
There are people that ride non-smart trainers
There are people riding a Vortex/Rampa with power estimation that are very well known to overread.
Then there are people that ride the upper market trainers.
And we have people riding upper market trainers and having an on-bike power meter.
We could have:
Entry-level - Zpower
Moderate level - Real power
Advance level - Dual power
If Zwift would build my idea, ZP could maybe just show DP was recorded with a similarity score of X%.
Please build this!!!
