Liking it pretty much so far coming over from Zwift and Trainerroad. I mainly like doing structured workouts and training plans. Zwift was OK but I got tired of their virtual worlds and somewhat wack workouts and plans. Trainerroad was good (no vids or music) but I wanted to try SYSTM’s 4DP metric along with having the cycling vids. I’ve done a couple of weeks including the Half Monty and Full Frontal tests. So far so good. I’m running a Saris Hammer, optical HRM, and cadence sensor, all connected via an ANT+ dongle dangling on a short USB extension ~18" below my notebook computer. A few minor observations and comments.
Power changes in ERG mode seem a bit delayed (~3-4 seconds) compared to what I’m used to. Perhaps other apps anticipate the change and send the new power level to the trainer a second or two before it becomes current.
Despite having the cadence sensor live and connected, the app often defaults to using the trainer for cadence and I have to set it back to the cadence sensor when I start the workout. Not a big deal, but I’d preferred it reliably remembered it.
I know I can change the trace in the workout to show power, HR, or cadence, but I don’t see an indication on the graph of what is being displayed. Different colors would be good, as would being able to display more than one trace at a time.
Having workouts with no vid or music is a bit rude, IMO. I can get some other music app or vid going, but that’s like Trainerroad. A big reason I’m trying SYSTM is for the vids. I’d prefer there were always music and vids. As it is, they can be turned off in the settings if so desired.
