done my first ride with my brandnew Elite Suito today. I must say: i am a newby to both: Zwift and Direct Drive Trainers
Basically all seems to work. Bought me a ANT+ Dongle to use my Garmin Heart Rate belt with my iMac (so i am using MacOS) and it was instantly detected.
Next the Elite Suito was detected and here comes my first confusion: i can see 4 different devices:
- Suito 49 (Bluetooth)
- Elite PWR, Elite FE-C and Elite Real Trainer (all ANT+) grey and not selectable
as only Bluetooth was selectable, i did this and started riding.
Now my issues and questions:
during the ride, the Suito sometimes seems to loose its BT connection. This is annoying as on the screen, you stop riding although you keep cycling. After 2-5 seconds the BT connection was back and i could continue.The distance between iMac and the Trainer is about 2,5 meters so not very far. Is BT so unreliable?
How can i connect the Suito via ANT+? (as mentioned, i have an ANT+ dongle that detects my heart rate belt). Is this something, that i can do via the Elite App?
Another issue is, that the Suito not really seems to interact with Zwift. I can’t feel any higher resistance when riding uphill or lower resistance when it goes downhill. This is, what Direct Drive trainers should be capable of, right?
any help is much appreciated
