LOVE the idea of a performance section.

Same would love this! But this is incredibly hard given the variability in cycle length. I’m close to 4 weeks so just run a 3 hard one rest week plan configuration and tweak things by a day here and there.

@Glen.Coutts, thank you for sharing. I had not seen that and will take a look.

I bought a bluetooth remote (~$20 USD) for my laptop (even though it’s within reach). It has a full keyboard on the underside and acts as a mouse too, if you want. I haven’t actually used it with SYSTM though because it’s generally set and forget. Maybe we just need better keyboard navigation in the app?

Thanks tunatorndo. When you say it acts as a mouse too, how does that work? Since my laptop is not within reach, the mouse feature is what I would need.

There are a lot of different solutions for this problem. You could plug in Mouse and Keyboard or:
Classic Wireless Keyboard with a touch pad:


Mini Keyboard with a touch pad:
grafik
Probably something similar to @tunatornado with two different sides:
grafik
Remote with something akin to a trackpoint

Samsung remote with track surface:

Bluetooth Remote from your Smartphone https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.appground.blek&hl=de_AT&gl=US

And loads more if you search for it.

Typically I get along fine with my remote keyboard to play/pause switch erg/Level 1-9 and intensity ±.
I only need the mouse for starting and switching workouts and hope this will get improved over time in system so i can get along with just a tv remote or keyboard but It is OK.

I think what I have as a remote is called a “Fly mouse” and it works like a Wii remote if you’ve used one before. It does not have a trackpad. You wave it around in the air to move the mouse pointer. I have something similar to https://www.amazon.com/Rii-Multifunction-Wireless-Keyboard-3-Gsensor/dp/B01CL3ZXGO/

But like @Thomas indicated, it’s mostly useful as a keyboard replacement. I use it to play/pause background music in other cycling programs.

Apart from the streaming bits as that’s good enough for me. I think all these “WANTS” are exactly what i’d want to.

In a similar vein, it would be so awesome if the videos in some way responded to your current performance. Obviously it’s prerecorded so you cannot chnage the actual footage but the messaging could be dynamic.

The Bat is a great example because that is all about messaging. I’m definetly a negative person and will berate myself but when a video says something like “close that gap” my thought process goes like this “that’s nonsense the gap will close because this is prerecorded video whether i stop or not” but the video text could be changed to be something like “close that gap” and then if you can see the efforts are being put it in add some encouragement such as “awesome work, you are a gap closer!” etc etc

I realise that we probably should not have the opposite which is when targets are not being hit you start calling us “useless” ! :slight_smile:

I loved the week with sessions. Great concept. I could barely hear Neal and had to shut my fans off to hear him. The content was great though.

It’s more a nice to have than a must have feature: a proper updater. Show release notes before installing an update. Even better offer “remind me later” and “skip update” options.

The Health Section I’ve seen being used on my HRV4Training App which lets you compare Age/Gender and a host of data sets RmSSD/HR/HRV and Normalised RMSSD so I’m sure this could rejigged for Power/HR/Cadence/Normalised Power

This or an option to add another workout on top of the one that was just completed without needing to save and then go in and add another workout… I like to double up or triple up if I am still feeling fresh but I dont really care for it to be split up in Strava or have to go through to trouble of hunting another workout down

Thanks for all the work you do, and thanks for opening up this thread for feedback.

Here is a small UX issue that I run into often enough for it to be annoying: I use the macOS app, have a Wahoo TICKR hr-monitor that works over BT, and take my garmin power and speed sensor readings of ANT+ using a Garmin ANT+ USB dongle. Most of the time this setup just works, but every now and then I for example forget to turn off the garmin app, or something else makes the sensors not come online when I start the workout. The only remedy in this situation is to “Finish Workout” and start over. And now comes my issue: after finishing the workout I’m dropped into the calender view - makes sense if you have completed (or at least started) the workout (same problem existed in the SUF app, but you ended up somewhere else after finishing the workout IIRC). But in this case the only reason to finish the workout was so that I can restart it again and unless it was planned (and thus is on the calendar) I have to find my workout… Lots of scrolling and clicking just to get back to where I was, very frustrating when all you want to do is to jump up on the bike and go…

There are of course lots of different solutions, would be nice if I could make sure all the sensors are working before I start a workout, but perhaps a somewhat quick fix could be that if you “Finish Workout” without having started it, plus you choose “Delete workout” you actually get back to the Workout screen. Or, how about: if you “Finish Workout” without having started it you are given an option “Restart” the workout (i.e. not Resume, but “Restart” so that the sensors are re-scanned).

As I said, minor annoyance, but it has happened more than once that I spend some time finding a workout I want to do, start it up, run into this problem, and then forget what the name of the workout was (goldfish memory:) I guess another solution (that I just thought of after writing all of this:) now that we have the nice new calendar, is to put it on the calendar before I start it…

Thanks!
