Hoping someone can help me understand this and determine what I should do for future TR sessions. I have been using power match with my UNO and smart trainer but its very bumpy for VO2 max and threshold intervals. Big extended spikes as per the snip below.
The DC Analyser shows a comparison of my Favero UNOs (via Garmin) and my Bkool Smart Pro 2 Trainer (via Zwift) during a Zwift ride. The obvious issue here is that there is a 10sec delay comparing pedal power to trainer power. This makes sense as the trainer needs to adjust resistance when I put the pedals down harder/faster but seeing this makes me think i should just ditch power match and use my trainer only for TR. Having Power Match calc’ing averages of both is probably giving me a wilder ride…especially with the left leg UNO power being doubled and the clear delay in the trainer reacting to resistance changes / interval step ups etc.
Guessing my trainer power lines are smoothed out quite a bit but overall the power comparison to the UNO is ok.
Does this make sense…am I interpreting this correctly? The analyser tool time matches the data so the 10sec delay can’t be from misaligned charts.
Any comments / suggestions would be appreciated.
