Support of Power in Zwift Run using Stryd Foodpod


(Christian Wirbka) #1

Hello,

as I use a Stryd Foodpod for Zwift Running and therefore would like to perform my running power based it would be very beneficial if you could support power within Zwift Running in a similar way as you do if I use my smart trainer in Zwift Bike.

I second this. I just bought a Stryd power footpod and it would be good to be able to see my power in real time rather than merely as an average after my ‘run’.

NB: My ‘run’ is anyone else’s ‘medium to slow walk’

Okay ‘Mister Exclamation Mark’, I did.

By the way, it’s no substitute but I noticed - when looking at the list of current Zwifters - it shows my w/kg while I’m running (or ‘walking slowly’ in my case). It’s weird to show it in that list but not have the Wattage available on the main workout page.

I very strongly agree. I do almost all my runs based on power from the Stryd. I am thus forced to use a different device. While we are at it, we need to have an easier way to create run workouts and to upload runs workouts from trainingpeaks.

It’s looks like 99% of the code to support Stryd running power is already there. When you run the switchbacks on Alps du Zwift the section panel appears (likely a bug). It records your section stats which include running power from your Stryd foot pod. So, Zwift is definitely receiving and properly decoding the run power values from Stryd. It just doesn’t display them in the pace/hr panel yet.
