Wattage fluctuations

I have a gen 1 Kickr and get constant wattage fluctuations. It’s impossible to hold steady wattage in a workout. I get constant 10w fluctuations with frequent 50w jumps and occasional 100w jumps. Everything is connected properly. Using windows laptop with ant+ which is 2 inches from kickr. Cadence sensor connects instantly. No difference if I use bluetooth.
It all works properly on trainer road.
I did check the archives and there are no answers that have worked for me there.

Hi @Craig_Hall

Welcome to the forum,

When you pair the Kickr you must select the ANT+ option that include FE-C for both the power and the controllable options.

Also check that you have the latest firmware installed on your trainer.

Thank you for your reply.
Yes it is selected. And like I said it also happens with bluetooth. So it’s not an ANT+ issue.
Firmware is up to date. I see this with a lot of users and no solid solution.
Spindown often times out.

OH this is frustrating. I’m using a brand new 2nd Gen wattbike atom, Love the setup and then this bloody wattage jumping around like crazy! I contacted Zwift through email with no reply but then managed to get them through the Insta page and they told me to email in my log files… I have done this so hopefully I get a solution. I’m oddly comforted by hearing other people are having the same problems… Ill update if I get any solid answers

Did you ever get an answer about your power fluctuations?
I have had similar issues with my Wahoo Kickr but for the life of me I can’t find a solution.
