Top watts not recording

Hitting 7 and 800 watts for at least 5 seconds but in ride data top watts is in 600s. What’s up with that?

I presume you are looking at the graph during the ride at the bottom of the screen?
If so it does not show all power in order to keep the screen tidy. Imagine if a sprint rider smashed out a 1500-2000 effort. The graph would cover half of the screen.

Your watts are recorded and used, just not shown.

It’s a pretty hard sprint effort for me so it’s all I can do to glance at w/kg during. I definitely hit 800 cuz I went orange. Graphs on companion for power on my effort only go to 650.

Orange, I believe, is 8 wkg, not 800 watts.

Ahhhh. So I’m an idiot? I guess that cld in fact just be 650ish then. Makes sense. But sad for me! :frowning:

Also. I’m really bad at math.

Some trainers have a max wattage in Zwift as well, wheel on classic “dumb” trainers can max out. What are you using?
