Garmin Vector 3 balance and cycling dynamics

It would be useful to be able to see the power balance on the Zwift screen, and when saving the session, the data of the power balance and cycling dynamics would be recorded in the .fit file.

Thanks for the request @_Trisk3 ! I’ll see if this feature is in the pipeline or not.


Yes plis de balance for the zwifttttt​:sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile:


I’m less bothered about the data being visible during Zwift workouts (although that would be nice) but I would like the data to be present in the generated .fit file so that I could monitor power balance and dynamics afterwards.


I agree. I would like to see this particular feature implemented. I don’t care about seeing the data during the ride (though that might be nice someday), as much as during post-workout analysis. Now that Garmin has released the cycling dynamics data to other pedal-based power meter manufacturers, I suspect this will be an ever-increasing desire. Thank you for your development of such a fine piece of software! Ride On!


that would be very great, then it’s possible to see training effect (Training Load / Recovery Time/ vo2max calculation, etc) in the activity file sent to Garmin Connect too?

Any news on this topic? I just started using Zwift and am dual recording for now (with my Fenix 3 HR and Zwift). The data captured by Zwift does not include L/R power, power balance, pedal efficiency, Intensity Factor, Training Load, etc. The data captured by the watch does not include the distance/speed/elevation data from the Zwift route. I’m torn about which activity to keep because each one misses at least one piece of interesting information.

Another quibble is that any time spent in the waiting area before an event is not tracked. I usually just spin to keep warmed up, but still it is something.

I’m also sending my Zwift data to Training Peaks (which would show L/R power data but it is not available from the Zwift recording).


I’m hoping that this is an easy addition? The pedals are sending the data anyway.

Even if it’s not possible to get all the garmin cycling dynamics stuff it would be nice for it to log the standard ant+ stuff (L/R balance, torque effectiveness, pedal smoothness etc…)

What are the status here? I have Garmin Vector 3, and now Neo2, both with left/right balance. Missing Zwift support for it. I see in forums that it have been requested by multiple users since January 2015.

I would also be really interested in this feature! Any news on this? As I understand it Garmin has made the API open for gathering these additional fields from a Vector 3.

+1. Not just for Garmin pedals. My wattbike also transmits pedal effectiveness, smoothness and l/r balance. Would be good to see in the .fit file

I am glad that I am not the only one that wants this.
Perhaps there is a way to append the cycling dynamics to the Zfift fit file and re-upload? I have the Edge 1030 so I have a way to capture the data currently.

Hi there, this would be interesting for me too :slight_smile: Any news on this?

Im interested too. Any news? :smiley:

any news, the Topic is now open since a while?

Come on zwift. If I use sufferfest, or wattbike hub, all my standard power metrics get recorded and then end up in Garmin connect etc. This is standard stuff. Please implement it


Just adding to the thread to support. Please add power L/R balance! A static trainer is the perfect place to work on L/R balance while riding! Thank you!


HI Vincent, any update in the mean time?

I’m also itching to see dual-side power features implemented.

We need this feature! Has there still not been any news on the implementation of this feature, @Vincent_Williams1?
