My power numbers in Zwift compared to inRide app are way off.
For the same perceived rate of exertion, 200 watts on the inRide app feels like about 130 watts in Zwift.
Is there anything I can do?
I have a Kurt Kinetic Smart trainer (t-2700 fluid) – it broadcasts the power, but I believe Zwift uses their own formula to calculate the power off of speed reported at the spindle.
I’m considering a power meter and just using this trainer in its “dumb state.” I originally thought it was like maybe 10% low but it’s not – it’s definitely astronomically low. This is a brand new one, so maybe Zwift algorithm’s are from the older trainer where you add the smart sensor on. Not sure.
