Resistance not increasing on hills

Hi all,

I’m a Zwift noobie looking for some advice. I’ve just bought a Saris H3 and am using the Android app for Zwift. Everything pairs correctly but when in ‘Just Ride’ mode I don’t get any additional resistance on hills which results in my just using one gear the entire time. Can anyone offer any advice on what I’m doing wrong?

Many thanks,


When you say everyone pairs correctly do you mean you pair it as a controllable?

When you say the resistance doesn’t change in “just ride” do you mean resistance does change elsewhere (in workouts)?

Hi @Peter_Law

Welcome to the forum.

There is curently a Zwift bug with controlling the H3 over Bluetooth.
