The speed of the trainer is simply the speed recorded with the ANT+ sensor from your rear wheel.
The speed shown by default is the "virtual speed", calculated in real time to have an estimate of what would be your real speed in the outside world. It is possible to change the default speed in the workout options if you wish.
This speed is calculated with your Power, your weight, and other parameters set in your profile.
Yes you are right, HR cannot change the resistance of your trainer, only power target can.
I would suggest you use a power plan, or find a way to get power (with speed cadence sensor and a trainer curve) for more reliable workouts.
TrainerSpeed is the speed your trainer is sending to the software (raw speed from the trainer)
Trainer speed does not give you much information and is used to calculate the power if you are using a power curve.
MaximumTrainer speed, or calculated speed, is a speed calculated with the power output you are generating.
It can look like outdoor speed and is an estimation of that based on generic outdoor variables.
For now the software only support ANT+ sensors, many sensor offer both bluethooth and ANT+ support.
Sorry if that does not answer your question, there is no plan to support bluethooth in the near feature.
Yep, that's what I thought and expected but both of my straps behave the same. I could do with another head unit to test with but I sold my old Garmin Edge.
Quick free ride below shows the output from Maximum Trainer. HR strap only connected to laptop (MT) for the first 2min and then also connected to Garmin 735XT from 2min onward which had no problems with the HR reading. Definitely an odd one.
Did it several times, no error anything. It looks fine and here the ping on my phone the link to strava is up and ready and nothing ever shows up at Peaks. I re-installed twice no change. I get the account linked confirmation.
The accepted range is just for display purpose,
The target set on the trainer will always be the one in the middle of the range (the real target). The target is updated every second and sent to the trainer.
In a flat interval, that means the trainer will not change the resistance during the interval. On progressive interval, the target will be changed multiple time to adjust to the new target. How you perform on a interval has no significance on the target, it is unforgiving like that :)
For some versions, it is not possible to stay on the older one, since it require file from the server.
Please let me know the error message you are having at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can resolve it.
It all depend if your spinning bike has ANT+ sensors connected to it.
If you have any of one of these, you can make use of MaximumTrainer:
ANT + HR strap, ANT+ Speed/Cadence sensor, ANT+ Power meter, ANT+ FE-C Trainer.
You will have to pair the sensor individually with the ANT+ page in MaximumTrainer.
