I cannot imagine I’m the only person with a Garmin wrist mounted HR monitor (Garmin 935) and am wondering if Zwift has any plans to integrate with those?
As much as I like to race on Zwift, it is frustrating to be filtered out of the Zwift Power results for not having an associated HR for my ride. I got this great device for Christmas and I feel bad for my wife when I tell her I didn’t get an official result on Zwift because the HR monitor on my Garmin isn’t integrated with Zwift.
Thank you and hopefully this is something you all can address at some point.
Following up on this question, I plan on buying a ANT + dongle in order to transmit my HR data to Zwift. So my question is this - if I use the Companion app for everything now, can I continue to do that while using the ANT + dongle to just transmit the HR info? If so, how do I set this up if you don’t mind taking a few minutes to walk me through it?
Sorry…one more question. Should I be getting a ANT + USB for the computer or an ANT + for my phone? Sounds like am iPhone adapter is a pain in the neck so my preference would be to get one for the computer and go the USB route but want to make sure this is doable.
Thanks for asking. I think this is a great question.
I have a Kinetic trainer that has to connect to my phone via Bluetooth so I then use the Companion app to connect to zwift on my computer. It runs fine but now that I’m racing more, I see that I’m getting filtered out of many races on Zwift Power due to not having a verified HR. I know you all are involved in but it is nice to get some results relative to the other Zwifters
Given that setup, can I connect with the HR sensor on Zwift via the ANT + and the power and cadence sensors via the Companion and have no problems?
In theory that should work just fine. As @Paul_Allen mentioned above, you might be better off if the trainer can also use ANT+, if it can, get a usb extension cable too so the ANT+ dongle can be right next to the trainer.
