Tomorrow my TacX Neo2T Smart is coming and everything is ready in my room.
I’ve always trained with the TacX but then I broke my knee (running too often, too hard and for too long) and I’ve been out for long. Back then I didn’t have a Zwift-Compatible trainer but now I do (I mean… tomorrow I will). Now there’s also trainers such as the TacX Magnum that basically also allow you to run.
So, considering I’m brand new to Zwift and that there’s also a running section, I was wondering how I am going to use it, considering I don’t own a treadmill, nor a Magnum. I do have access to treadmills and, of course, I can run on the road… but how does this apply to Zwift?
Instrument-wise, I own a Suunto9 Baro and its Smart Belt (which is BlueTooth). I’m not sure this watch and its OHR are going to connect to Zwift but I suppose the Smart Belt will and, in any case, I use 3rd party software to merge all data into a single log (all bike data + watch data into a log that gets archived).
While I may guess fairly accurately how Zwift works with bikes (can’t be much different from the old TTS4 software from TacX) I have no idea how it works with running. Of course I installed Zwift on my Android cell phone too. So how does it work, am I supposed to go on treadmill with the cell phone at hand? How can Zwift work… only a few treadmill models actually broadcast via BT and I don’t think I can access to those. Does Zwift running also use outdoor runs? And if so, how?
I know there must be some documentation somewhere… but if some expert user could clarify things for me, I am quite certain I’ll get the hang of everything in a couple of days and a few posts.
