Hi everyone. I know this is a topic that repeatedly comes up but I’ve still never found a definitive answer to this problem with the WattBike Atom 2nd Gen.
To try and cut a long story short, I first got my WattBike in 2021. The first few weeks with it were plagued with issues - the resistance would drop on hills or if I was putting any power down (sprinting for example). Every time I used it. After going back and forth with WattBike, the bike was replaced after a few weeks.
I’ve used it happily and regularly since then, with no problems… until today.
Back to the same issue. The resistance is dropping so I end up spinny spinning up hills or on the start line of a race and not going anywhere. I have to stop the ride completely because it doesn’t correct itself without closing the app and starting again.
I’m pairing with an iPad via Bluetooth, plus a HR monitor. Never changed my setup in two years.
Wattbike firmware is all up to date and the issues don’t occur when using the wattbike hub app - only on Zwift. I feel like this is something to do with the latest Zwift app update.
Anyone having the same issues or have found a solution?
