Workout mode with dumb trainer

(Dumpster_Fire) #1


I have set up Zwift on my TV with my ‘dumb’ trainer (KK Road Machine) until I can purchase a smart trainer. I am new to zwift and I have never trained with a power meter which makes this a little more difficult. 

The trouble I am having though is that my wattage is set to calculate every 3 seconds not instant. If i’m told to hold 160 watts I find that it’s jumping all over the place with no perceivable effort distance. I’m talking 145 to 54 to 134 to 200. It actually made the workout mode pretty frustrating. I’m finding the same thing in ‘Ride’ mode except my wattage is higher. I am using a Garmin magnetless speed and cadence sensor. Any ideas?
