I use the Elite Realaxiom trainer and I suspect that the power indication on the Zwift is lower than it really is. On the Elite application I usually got 200W power with the 145BPM pulse. At training Zwift, the power of 170W was achieved with the 169BPM pulse. Which result is closer to the truth?
Zwift and RealAxiom have power issues. I end up showing about 40W less for equal power output on Zwift than what my real power is. While in workouts this isn't a huge issue, if you try and ride races or with others it is frustrating because I have to ride at LT and above just to keep up what should be an easy pace. I compare slope, power output and HR from my outside rides (I use a different bike on the trainer) to similar numbers on Zwift and what is a 230 - 260W effort on my Stages shows up as a 150 - 170 W effort in Zwift. Oh, the RealAxiom does show a lot closer to the real thing, in fact, before I just reinstalled all the SW it was actually reading a bit high on the trainer (I could hold 300W for 5 minutes on the trainer, not so much outside, but then again, no headwind on the trainer). Anyway, still deciding if I will keep using Zwift. It is sort of disappointing because I spent 4 hours upgrading the computer I use for the wired trainer to 64b OS so I could run Zwift and then ran into this issue.
