So I finally pulled the trigger on some pedal based power meters. I picked up the Assioma Duo’s and a Garmin head unit (Edge 820). I’m riding a Kinetic Smart trainer.
What I’ve noticed is that the readings displayed in Zwift are DRASTICALLY different from the numbers displayed on my head unit. For example, when doing the Tour of London, my head unit was displaying power 155 and Zwift was only showing around 65! Essentially, the power displayed in Zwift is anywhere from 50-75% off! That obviously can’t be right…
Is there something special I need to do to get these numbers to jive? I can’t believe they would be that far off from each other. I’ve done a calibration through the Kinetic app, but still seeing the major difference between power readings.
