RUN: Android Companion App Orange bluetooth, should I care?


(Andrew Finlay) #1

Hello a query if that’s ok all … its a GUI/UX/posting runs query

Setup as below/ all working nicely on first ever try :slight_smile:

  • Normal treadmill
  • Garmin Fenix 3
  • Garmin Footpod connected to watch
  • Garmin Chest strap HRM run connected to watch
  • Android Oreo 8.1 phone connected on same wifi network as laptop
  • Win10 laptop with Zwift app running, same wifi network as laptop
  • ANT+ dingle on Win10 laptop

Now the Query

  1. With all above on, and my doing a run and working, there is an ORANGE blurtooth icon in the android companion app, that says go to a pairing screen. Is the app assuming I would not have ANT+, but connect my garmin watch to bluetooth to my phone/ the companion app, and then to the laptop hence why its orange? Otherwise I cannot see what other things to connect

THANKS ALL

That’s correct. If there’s no reason why you need to connect sensors through Zwift Companion on your OnePlus or your Windows 8 PC, please completely disable bluetooth on both. The light you’re noticing is likely Companion readying your Bluetooth connection expecting that you’re going to bridge devices from your OnePlus to Windows.

Not a problem; you’re more than welcome, but if you’re still noticing inconsistencies after disabling Bluetooth, please keep in touch!
