KOM time and ETA throughout climb


(Neil Partridge) #1

The KOM ETA only shows up near the end of the climb… why not all the way through the climb so you can monitor progress?

Completely agree i want to see the current kom, my best time, my eta, the stopwatch start immediatly and continue, and even split times going through the 100m boards.

+1. Would be a great fix to having to do this from the top of my head whilst cycling now.

I did epic kom reverse today…I still haven’t worked out where it starts so starting the stopwatch immediately shows you exactly…its a god 20 hard minutes up and to not have an idea how you are doing until the last 1k is crazy…I can understand not having thd eta until a point where it will be reasonably accurate…but stopwatch starting immediately and splits on the 100m boards would be a big help.

I suspect the idea for suppressing it was to avoid making it a visual burden for 20-30 minutes of the ride.  Personally I would be okay solving this in either of two ways:

  1. Display the time progress at a few checkpoints.  At the least have it shown at the start. If the ETA were shown about once every kilometer for 15 seconds that would be useful.
  2. Do a more compact KOM timer display, but have it on all the time.  Just show the left sidebar with standings during the last few minutes like it works now.

3 or 4 time checks at least. Riding hard for 20+ minutes and not knowing exactly how you are doing the whole time is silly. At least I would like to know if I am on pace, close, or aiming for a personal best. Without the timer it is a mystery until the final 2 or 3 minutes.

Totally agree.  I just started using zwift and it’s even somewhat a mystery how long the climb is and the official start until you’ve done it a few times.

Duane’s suggestions are good - it may also be cool to see a ghost rider of a different color (which I read somewhere else but will mention):

  1. One that represents your best time

  2. One that represents the best time of the day (if within 30 seconds of it)
