Brand new to Systm. Kind of a two part questions.
I tried the Half Monty test today, and during the warmup the screen prompts started talking about HR so decided to bust out an old Polar HR watch and monitor (H7, I think?) and perhaps manually watch my HR and see if I could take do the constrained effort portion. My Tacx Vortex smart trainer dropped from my Windows computer and wouldn’t reconnect, almost certainly due to the presence of the HR strap/watch
My phone wouldn’t connect until took off my HR monitor and placed it 10 feet away.
Did the Half Monty without my HR. I got results for MAP and FTP, though I think it said the HR was used to make the FTP more accurate. What did I miss?
Also, what HR straps are compatible with Systm, Iphone and Windows PC? I don’t know how often HR is used with the cycling programs. It seems mostly power based. Do I need one? I’m going to be doing 90% of my training indoors using a smart trainer. Plan will be one of the cycling race programs.
