Addicting - also one bug that needs to be addressed
Zwift is hands down the most addicting way to ride an indoor trainer. The way they’ve made it into a game makes every ride a competition against both yourself and hundreds of other riders. You can compare yourself instantly with riders from around the world to see how you stack up.
The only drawback is that if you lose internet connection for even a second during a ride, the app won’t upload your complete ride. I’ve heard from support that they’re working on a safeguard for this. But, I logged a ~16 mile ride with over 1000ft of climbing only to have it log the first 7 miles of the ride only. I hope this gets rectified in the future for all the zwifters who deal with spotty Wifi connections!
As far as when Zwift works, I would always give it a 5 star rating. However, getting zwift to work is always such a struggle. I have refrained from complaining for a long time, but I can’t hold back anymore as it is hard for me to be able to use the app every single time I try. The calibration freezes on the spin down, and sometimes I have to restart the app up to 10 times before it will complete to 0 MPH to complete (it usually freezes and stops at either 2 or 4 MPH, and will not complete) . Also, after the new update when I FINALLY did complete the spin down, I got on the map (Watopia) and started pedaling. When I started pedaling, all the sudden I was going 35 MPH, and it said my power output was 490 WATTS. I was barely spinning at a warmup pace, and no matter how many times I restarted/recalibrated it wouldn’t fix the power output error. Zwift has been such an amazing training tool, but it still feels like it’s in a test phase as far as development. Maybe instead of keeping on trying to give us new maps (we all want 24/7 watopia) try fixing all of the bugs the app has.
Regardless of the issues I still LOVE the app and the program! I just want to be able to hop on and spin with ease!
My husband and I liked the idea of him riding while I run, both of us using Zwift for working out together. While the idea of Zwift running is a good one, the execution is not living up to my expectations based on what I have seen with the bikes. I have tried the original Milestone and the Milestone-turned-Zwift foot pods and neither is able to stay connected. The drop outs are so frequent and aggravating that on most of my treadmill runs, I end up turning the iPad off and just watching the little graphs built into my treadmill. It’s become a question of which is less annoying, the hit-and-miss function of Zwift for Runners, or the boredom of that little blip on the treadmill marking my progress.
