I was riding (non-workout mode) WATOPIA last night and I: 1) checked my firmware (via the Wahoo utility app) and 2) did a spindown via the Wahoo Utility App. My computer/ant+ dongle sits 3-4ft from the trainer and I didn’t see any major dropouts on power/speed (i.e. didn’t go to 0). Note: this is a 3 day old Kickr Snap.
What I noticed was I would be spinning say a 90rpm decent gear on the flats, as we turned to go uphill (2-10% incline) I kept the same rpm’s with the same effort…yes, my speed on the display went down and watts stayed about the same…but, I didn’t feel any excessive resistance on the flywheel. If I shifted into a HARDER gear and cranked it, my power went up and typically speed. But, again I didn’t feel any excessive resistance from the trainer. I am about finished with my trial and am debating on signing up until either 1) this is resolved and 2) I have more km’s to test it out.
I noticed some posts on pausing and it going “out” of SIM mode…not sure how to know if this happened or not. Also, my ZWIFT resistance is set at 50%. Thanks for any help you can provide…will be trying some other software soon while I await some feedback.
