I run and bike on Zwift. I have an older treadmill that I will soon have to replace. I checked out the list of Zwift-compatible treadmills and did a bit of research on my own. I am interested in a True treadmill and spoke with their rep. He informed me that the treadmill will transmit speed data to Zwift via Bluetooth, but it will not change its elevation in response to changes in elevation on Zwift. The treadmill will therefore take the place of my foot pod but it will not make the Zwift running experience any more immersive. I was wondering if Zwift will eventually be able to adjust my treadmill’s elevation as I run. If this is a feature in development, is there any idea when it will be available and for which treadmills?
I should mention that the True rep said his company did not allow speed changes to be dictated by the Zwift application for safety and liability reasons. However, I would assume that the elevation changes would occur so gradually at jogging/running speed that it would not be an issue.
I found another post from 2017 that asked essentially this same question, but it did not receive a developer reply so I thought I would ask it again. Thank you in advance for any information you can provide. Ride (and run) on!
