I'm also seeing the same problem, just with heartrate though.
I've started doing a few workouts on my rollers recently using just a cadence sensor and my HRM, and recording the session using Maximum Trainer and noticed the heart rate doesn't flash during these workouts. Which would indicate it might have something to do with the power recording that is causing the blinking. I see that the source code is now on Github, I might have a look at it when I get sometime and see if I can see what may be causing the issue.
(its not really an issue though, the heartrate date is still recorded perfectly)
We will need to have a power curve for each separate resistance (knob)
So if you have one that you can use most of the time, that would be good.
Then you could record the trainer speed and the power at the same time (with a power meter and a speed sensor)
After a few workout, when we have a lot of data, we can check the .fit file and build a spreadsheet that will have
5 kmh = 150 W
10 kmh= 200 W
The more points the better to derive the formula!
@billyd0023 That's not an ERG file.
Looks like a guide / template on how to create an ERG file.
If you look at the files I posted - these are in fact XML files.
It was a while ago - but I converted ERG files into Max Trainer XML format.
As above just download and drop them into your workout folder.
Sadly I don't have a Kickr to test. The software was tested with SimulANT+, that provide a virtual FE-C trainer, and the resistance is controlled there. I know other trainer that respects FE-C protocol have no issue also (NEO, etc.)
I suggest you contact Wahoo support, and ask them if they use a custom FE-C protocol, or if their trainer pass the SimulANT+ test.
I surely understand you have other things to tackle to get the app. updated and so on. However since it's a "training" application workouts and training plans are quite key off course! That's one of the things I'm currently missing a bit, however on the other side I'm very happy to use your application and seeing that it all works pretty nicely. I'm sure it will only get better when more updates are brought in, so keep up the good work and thanks for running this application for free!
The graph in studio mode doesn't show any lines, since it would not be readable with a lot of users. It is just used to have an overview of where you are in the workout and what is coming next.
Each user has his own little box to follow, the targets will be written there. Power/HR target will be different for every user depending on their FTP/LTHR from the studio page. Cadence targets are the same for all users.
Basically, it's the same as in solo mode, the box will become red if you are too high or blue if you are under target.
The target will change in real time so you have to follow your little box.
Hopefully it's clear, if you have any questions just let me know!
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.
