Treadmill Smart Speed(TSS) - Created with ZWIFT in Mind
Available now from Apple AppStore *BLE Speed Sensors(not just this) are not currently working wth Mac or PC versions on Zwift. I will update this page once confirmed working.
The Zwift Virtual Cycling world is about to be opened to indoor runners. Zwift are currently Beta testing their Run module which will allow runners to train with others even when they can't get outdoors for real.
Unfortunately, most treadmills don't broadcast their speed information, so the alternative is to use a $60 Bluetooth footpod, which inevitably never matches the pace and speed of the treadmill. This result is inconsistent numbers.
Treadmill Smart Speed (TSS) is the ideal solution if you have an iPhone. Simply use the TSS app to tell Zwift what pace you are running as set up on the treadmill display. This allows your Zwift avatar to run through the Zwift Universe at that pace and, more importantly, records accurate statistics.
If you still want to use motion sensor, then strap the iPhone to your arm and use the TSS app which will estimate your speed and let Zwift know. As with usage alongside the treadmill the pace then determined will take you Zwift avatar onto the Zwift Universe at the corresponding speed.
