Description

Power your performance on your Wattbike with the free Wattbike Hub training app. Access over 100 workouts, plans, tests, virtual climbs and challenges to enhance your indoor cycling training. Measure and track your progress with data that's important to you, including unique analysis of your pedalling technique and effectiveness. It’s an essential companion to your Wattbike sessions.

WORLD CLASS WORKOUTS:
Immerse yourself in 100s of workouts from world class athletes and coaches, including the New Zealand All Blacks.

BENCHMARK TEST:
Before you jump into a workout or plan, we recommend you benchmark your fitness with the 20 Minute Test or Submax Health Assessment test to establish your Functional Threshold Power (FTP). This allows the Wattbike Hub to personalise your sessions to your ability.

Beginner, intermediate or advanced, fundamentals or event-specific, the Hub hosts a variety of training plans to suit your training needs.

CHALLENGES:
Feeling competitive? Get involved in regular Wattbiker challenges and win some exciting prizes.

VIRTUAL GEARING:
On the Wattbike Atom (next generation), you can customise your virtual gearing and shifter setup to mimic outdoor riding. Choose from 5 different groupsets: compact, semi-compact, climbing, 11 speed or 22 speed, and personalise your shifter configuration to suit your riding style.

LIVE PEDALLING TECHNIQUE FEEDBACK:
Improve your pedalling technique with instant feedback on your left / right leg balance. Our proprietary Pedal Effectiveness Score (PES) combined with Polar View will show you where you can become more effective, and ride faster for longer.

APP INTEGRATION:
Share your workouts to Apple Health, Strava and TrainingPeaks.

HEART RATE MONITOR:
Connect your Bluetooth or ANT+ enabled heart rate monitor to view and keep track of your HR during exercise, helping you train more efficiently.

Great, but room for basic improvement

I’ve had two versions of the Wattbike atom now and can honestly say they are worth the investment. I have used the Wattbike hub for a few years now and it has never crashed once and is easy to use. It is really stable and the fact your data maps are saved and emailed to you for analysis is a great touch.
There are a wide variety of exercise sessions from hiit to endurance and also famous climb simulations.

I do feel there is a lot of room for improvement though as short sprint work for track cycling, bmx and explosive efforts have been neglected.
An option to simply set your own distance for tt practice etc wouldn’t be hard to include and would improve the app massively.

Developer Response ,

Hi Argee25, thanks very much for taking the time to provide this detailed review and suggestions for improvements. Great to read some of the positives you've experienced.

Please do check out some of the Wattbiker Workouts where athletes and coaches have provided workouts, along with the HIIT category - there are some based around sprint work and explosive power, but we'll certainly share the request for more track/bmx/explosive targeted workouts with the Product team we'd love to give you more choice.

We'll also pass on the request about setting a distance for TT pacing.

Thank you

Problems with Watt reporting & ERG is very poor on Zwift

I’ve been roadie /racing for many years now used power metres a lot in that time so very familiar with my training performance and FTP - sadly in decline as the years advanced. Anyway ... had been using a Tacx Flux for maybe 3 years but what with COVID and indoor racing becoming more of a feature went for the plunge and bought and Atom, having used Wattbike in gyms for years. The issue I have is that moving from the Tacx I’ve found it almost impossible to race anywhere near the same level, hold the same power or FTP as before it feels so much harder to spin into a high cadence when upping power - the bike seems to drag. So I ride outdoor with a Stages - did a relatively demanding 60m on the weekend and right enough my power average is watt it has been previously- I rode with a very experienced guy who trains a lot - Ironman’s etc he checked his levels and all what he would be expecting from his effort on the ride. In addition the guy I sold the Tacx to is a ride mate and he’s clear the Tacx wasn’t over reporting as he thinks he finds the Tacx more demanding that his previous smart trainer. So what’s going on Wattbike - I have send a email to ask for some advice but so far few days on nothing in reply? Is disappointing as this is a pretty premium product - I have my 39 day return still but would rather not!

Wattbike app

I’m furious with these people Been using my wattbike for 18 months fine Now they have changed the app I can’t update I can’t sign in - just get an authentication failed message I can’t get a question to send via their website There is no phone number My wattbike is now useless as I can’t get it to start This is not customer service - it is being held to ransom by wattbike and effectively being locked out of my expensive piece of property Had I known this company would behave in this manner I would never have purchased the equipment Unfortunately I have to give them one star to post this review - they don’t deserve any

Updating this review on 28th September - having managed to reach register with another email address and use my bike for a month I now find that the new email address doesn’t work either
During that time I have had multiple contacts with the technical team at wattbike all asking me the same thing and promising to sort it out
As far as I can see all they have done is to make it worse and once again I am locked out of my property

Hi there,
Very sorry to hear you're having trouble logging in since the update, we understand how frustrating this must be. If this is still unresolved please can you create a ticket at https://support.wattbike.com so we can investigate and get you cycling again?
Thank you
