I have solved this issue - at least for myself - it is all about the ‘Controllable’ connection in the Pairing screen in Zwift.
My Elite Direto can connect to Zwift (the Controllable panel) in two ways:
- Elite RealTrainer [ID] <-- INCORRECT
- ELITE FE-C[ID] <-- CORRECT
BOTH of the above are ant+ options. See screenshot.
After a ride, with resistance working correctly, if I leave everything on and go back into Zwift I risk the trainer re-connecting to the wrong one.
The first picture is the correct configuration, the second is the choice that the trainer puts out and the last picture is the incorrect configuration which will not give you a variable resistance.
If you connect to the wrong option in the Controllable panel, just hit ‘Unpair’ and select the correct one.
If you do not see the correct option, turn off all other Bluetooth and ant+ devices until you can see the option begining: ‘ELITE FE…’
