Posting my experience here, in the hopes there may be progress in fixing that MacOS bug:
I’ve been Zwifting four about two months – the duration of the pandemic shut down and it’s been great, a sanity saver, and a fitness booster. But I’m having constant probelms with my signal dropping between my smart trainer and the Zwift program. It’s happening to me about once on every hour-long ride. And today, it happened three times. Driving me bonkers.
My setup: Wahoo Kickr Core, Wahoo Tickr HRM connecting to a MacBook Pro (MacOS 10.15, connected via Bluetooth) running Zwift with the Zwift companion app open on my iPhone (with Bluetooth turned off). Both MacBook Pro and iPhon on the same network. I’ve learned to be sure I turn off all other Bluetooth connected devices. That helps, but it’s no panacea.
When I do lose the signal, I first switch off my Kickr via a plug strip. Then, in Zwift, I disconnect everything (Kickr, cadence and speed) except for the Tickr HRM. Then I restart the Kickr via the plug strip and pop back into Zwift to reconnect everything.
I’ve got it down to a quick exercise – maybe 20 seconds – but it’s soooo sooo frustrating to lose momentum on a long ride.
Any tips or tricks I might me missing?
