This might be slightly niche, but as the products are common, perhaps someone else is having this issue too.
Bit of background: I use Trainer Road for my workouts, but like to record a back-up on my Wahoo Elemnt Bolt so that if I do any backpedal breaks it doesn’t skew my overall IF or my power/HR records. Also it allows me to monitor L/R power meter metrics if I need to.
This has worked fine for a while, but lately - possibly since a Bolt firmware update - the Tickr will only connect to the Bolt via Bluetooth and not ANT+, which means that it’s fighting TR for the bluetooth connection and won’t record any heart rate data. And unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a way to make the TR connection with the Tickr ANT+ only.
TR support figured out a workaround which was to disable bluetooth in the TR desktop app and connect via ANT+ only, leaving the bluetooth channel free for the Bolt. This solved the initial problem, but isn’t ideal because it makes my TR connections much less reliable.
Anyone else with a Tickr / Bolt experiencing this issue? Even if I “force” the Bolt to connect to the Tickr via ANT+, it then seems to default to bluetooth and has the exact same issue when I have TR open as well.
