A lot of struggle today with my session on iPad and it was completely ruined.
Very disappointed, because I literally was forced by wahoo to update my device to iPad OS 15 (from flawlessly working iOS 12) to install SYSTM app and it just does not work! I’ve done 2 workouts on my FLUX S with the new app and one was worse that other.
List of problems:
- (1) had a lot of problems connecting with my wahoo(!) TICKR heart rate monitor. It was needed to restart the app a few times just to restore failed connection (seems that switching into another app and back may break the connection). I even rebooted iPad once, but that does not help to get rid of bugs.
- (2) now I can not listen to youtube music during sessions. Even if I select ‘no vid’ session which has no music builtin. Even if I turn the sound off in SYSTM! Switching from the music app back to SYSTM session just immediately stops the music. I suppose SYSTM steals audio focus from the music app. Why that was working ok with the good old SUF app and now this is a huge problem??
- (3) ERG mode is broken. Today it just no changes when you go from recovery 80w to warming on 120w. It was around 90w instead of target 80w and keeps this power instead of 120w.
NOTE: during the previous workout it was broken too, but it somehow worked just keeps power 20-25 watts less than needed. And yes, I’ve done calibration before today’s workout (a few days before, actually).
- (4) surprisingly LEVEL mode was broken too!! See no changes in resistance switching between level0 and level2. But somehow it was more ERG than ERG: I got 90 watts on 34x28 instead of target 85w regardless of cadence: it was 90w on 85rpm and 90w on 70rpm. How can this even be? It’s obviously not the so-called ‘power floor’ problem because my trainer was able to provide resistance around 55w on 34x28 gears with 80-90 cadence with the old SUF app.
Thank god I did not go for an annual subscription with a discount when it was offered. Now I’m able to cancel my subscription and go for some hopefully working app like trainer road or something.
I have been using SUF for about two years and I really liked it.
I was positive about the new app at first.
But now I’m disappointed and upset.
Did not plan to switch to other apps but SYSTM now looks like a completely unusable solution (((
