Hi folks - I’m going to upgrade from an old “dumb” trainer, and neither care enough to buy a smart trainer, or want to spend the money on one.
I’m pretty curious about the Tacx Satori Smart. My understanding is that it will transmit my power data to Zwift on its own (don’t need speed or cadence sensor), but that it won’t change resistance.
So… that’s fine, but except for the fact that my 2004 Cycleops Fluid2 is getting noisy and clunky, I’m not too worried about using the speed sensor and cadence sensor and letting Zwift calculate my wattage for me… so maybe I could just save a few hundred dollars and buy one of Tacx’s “dumb” trainers… like the Booster or Blue Motion.
Anyone have any thoughts either way? “Yes the Satori Smart is worth it because of _____” or, alternatively, “nahh… just buy the Blue Twist… it’s fine for your needs”?
PS - anybody using the Satori Smart and can let me know if it is a seamless experience, or if there are ever any hiccups with it?
