Fully Interactive Smart Bikes
Smart Bikes connect to the app in the same way as smart trainers, although some have additional features that are explained below. They will connect to the app using Bluetooth or ANT+ and allow the app to:
- Report data; including power, cadence, and speed
- Contol the resistance of the bike when in ERG mode
- Set a constant resistance in Level mode.
This category was limited to the Wattbike Atom until recently, but now includes the Wahoo Kickr Bike and others.
