It was with a great deal of excitement that I signed up for Zwift. All the website told me was that i needed a trainer, a bike computer with cadence and a ANT+ dongle. It didn’t matter that i don’t have a power meter as Zwift has an algorithim to take care of that. I already had the trainer - a Kurt Kinectic Road Machine, i have the bike computer - a Garmin 810 with cadence and heart. All i needed to get, according to the Zwift site, was the ANT+ dongle. So off I went and purchased one.
When the package arrived I eagerly got started setting it up so i could join the race. Only problem is it turns out that the Garmin 810 doesn’t talk to the ANT+ dongle… so now it seems like I am stuck, one small link missing.
Does anyone know how I get the Garmin 810 talking to the computer in real time? Is there another way to do this? I desperately hope so cause Zwift looks amazing and I really want to be able to join in!!!
One other thing. Zwift, an upgrade for your website could be to detail which bike computers do and don’t talk to your program.
Any help would be truly appreciated!
