Tech Tip: Getting a Good Connection

A few people had some connection issues this week, so we've put together some tips for anyone using a computer connection (not an Apple TV or iPad).

BlueTooth vs. Ant+?

The winner is Ant+. Bluetooth is a faster signal with a greater range, but it's also more susceptible to interference (typically coming from your laptop or computer itself). If you must use Bluetooth, find a way to get the computer as close to the trainer as possible.

Best Ant+ Tip

Move the dongle away from the computer (the computer will create interference with reception) with a simple USB extender cable like this one.

Second Best Ant+ Tip

Move the dongle close to the trainer itself to improve reception.

Third Best Ant+ Tip

When you connect to Zwift and pair your trainer, make sure you use the FE-C version of the Ant+ signal. It's actually probably your only choice now, but this is a special signal built for fitness equipment (hence the FE in the name).
