With the release of the new Nike+ Apple Watch and Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2, I’ve got a renewed fervor for wanting to see Apple Watch support for Zwift.
In the past, the suggestion has been for the Apple Watch to display information. However, I think that’s the wrong way to go about it. The information you need is already on your screen!
What I think would be a real game changer would be for the Apple Watch to support a companion app for Zwift Mobile Link. Specifically, giving me a handful of simple controls I can use to control Zwift without needing to either mount my phone someone, or grab it from a jersey pocket or otherwise. Turn, reverse, power-up, and pause, for example. I think the most elegant solution would be one simply with four commonly used buttons.
I’m unsure of the technical limitations, but perhaps enabling support for using the Apple Watches built in heartrate monitor in Zwift would be useful for some. Though I suspect most of us already have a heartrate strap.
Thanks for your time!
