Sole F63 works great with Zwift via Bluetooth

Hi all,

Since I haven’t seen it in the forums, I just want to mention that we just purchased the Sole F63 treadmill and it works great with Zwift. It connects via Bluetooth and transmits the running speed. In case anyone wondered.

Cheers,
Martin

Hi, did your ipad just find the treadmill or did you need anything else? I’m in the process of getting a treadmill and had been looking at a Schwinn but they don’t appear to pair with Zwift so Sole may be my alternative. Does Zwift control incline like it does on a smart turbo or just record your run. Thanks

Yup, it works out of the box. Both Zwift directly on iPad/iPhone or Zwift Companion on iOS and then connecting to a PC works great.

You only get the running speed that you set on the treadmill. I don’t think any treadmill, regardless of brand, can get controlled by Zwift (speed or incline). Zwift doesn’t support it either.

Great thanks, that’s just saved me a fortune and from being disappointed. The one I was looking at doesn’t pair and was £250 more expensive! Any other benefits you’ve discovered? It’s a big investment so building my case for my husband :smiley:.

It’s our first treadmill, so don’t have much to compare it with, but so far we are super happy with it.

The only negative thing, which we knew about when we purchased it, is that it is quite big in the front, and a bit plastic feel to buttons and so on. It’s not the scandinavian minimalistic design that we’re used to if I say it like that :slight_smile:

But so far, very satisfied with it. We always use it with Zwift, so haven’t used the built-in programs.

I have not been equally successful using the F63. No success on IPhone, IPad or AT 4. Just wonder if there might be a Sole F63 version issue. I’m running v1.1

Just wonder if you are using a F63. In the post Treadmill - max budget of €2000 you state that you are happy with your F65. So is you experience for a F63 or F65?

I’ve heard that it is only those manufactured from 2019 and onwards that have the bluetooth functionality. Can you connect to it with their own (crappy) iOS app?

We have the F63.

Thanks for clarifying. I’m afraid that my device was manufactured in a pre 2019 batch :smirk:
Yes, I can connect it to their iOS app. I have tested before but when I saw your post I for a moment thought that Zwift had done something.
Upgrading F63 FW is likely not trivial or even possible, I guess.

Thx

If it supports the app via BT, one would think it works also with Zwift, but then things are not always what they seem :slight_smile:

In my setup, it is visible as a treadmill in Zwift without any hassle. Just to confirm, other types of BT connected device works in your setup? So it’s not something with the iOS devices and Zwift on them

i have a smart trainer connected to the same iOS device (ATV 4) but not at the same time and so it works just fine.

Just a question can you see the trademill as a BT device in BT (settings) menu on the iOS device?
