Sorry but what training sessions are you wanting to transfer? I have a few athletes that use Garmin or Polar computers which are compatable with the pc. Another tool is to log on to training peaks but I think you will still need a Garmin or polar.
Ive just got the fluid dyno trainer, my first trainer and i love it. The only problem i cant get the heart rate starp to work. ive tried wetting it first for a better contact.. i ve setup my min max heart rate on the computer but still not reading.. any ideas?
Hi sorry I replied but just noticed it didn’t send. Have you had success with the heart rate strap? Some have had to replace the battery which fixed the problem. Also can depend on you chest shape, try lowering the strap making sure you have full contact. Let us know if you still have no luck.
is there a way to calibrate the power readings? I’ve completed three FTP tests now and averaging 410-420WATTS over the 20min test. therefore FTP somewhere around 380WATTs after inputting average power data into your threshold calculator. considering I am just an amateur cyclist and reading data on top level tour riders FTP ranging from 330-360W I’m skeptical about your products accuracy. Is my product faulty or should I quit my day job?
Hi, As long as you have completed the set up correctly then this predicited wattage reading will be correct. Remebering this is a predicted wattage reading and will vary to each trainer. This measurement will differ to those from a power metre device (power tap, SRM) that use torgue as a measure and calculation.
The beauty is you can now measure your intensity from your test and train to your zones when on your trainer. When you go to retest you will be using the same device which will give you indications of improvement.
Tyre pressure, load onto the back tyre are also factors when using any indoor trainer. I hope this helps and you get improvemnets from using power readings.
