A few months ago we introduced you to our smartphone app with Wattbike Hub 101: A Guide To The Wattbike Hub For Beginners. Following recent updates to the app, we’re back with the second installment in the series - connecting to your favourite apps.
What is the Wattbike Hub?
The Wattbike Hub is an app and website, which you can download for free and use to measure and optimise your Wattbike training. For a more detailed look at the Hub, read our Hub guide for beginners.
What services can I share my data with automatically?
The Wattbike Hub currently allows you to connect to the following apps:
When connected your sessions will be automatically shared on Strava and/or TrainingPeaks
Can I use the Wattbike Hub app while using other training apps?
You can connect multiple devices (but not training apps) such as a cycle computer and a phone app to your Wattbike, only under the condition that either device is just 'reading' or 'receiving' data from the Wattbike OR that one device is reading data from the Wattbike and one is controlling the resistance.
For example, you may have your Garmin cycle computer connected to the Wattbike via ANT+ which is reading and recording data from your ride on the Wattbike, and you could have a training app such as Zwift connected either via Bluetooth or ANT+ FE-C which is controlling the resistance.
Our users often use the Wattbike app at the same time as:
