I am going on holiday soon and am in the middle of a training plan
the hotel has standard gym bikes but i will have my HR strap with me.
Is there any way i can still do the training sessions as the ipad i have wont be connected to a power metre or my HR strap [unless of course someone can tell me how to connect my ipad to my hr strap via ant+]
i am happy to follow the session on the ipad and match my hr and cadence and power on the machine to what the session wants - but then it won’t be recorded as done in the training plan
while your actually training details of HR, power, etc. won’t be recorded, you could do what you have described (follow the session on the iPad with auto-pause off, playing it like a video), and then it should still record as completed once you’ve finished. Or you could mark it as complete manually by clicking the 3 dots on the session in your calendar.
I use a NPE WYÛR to bridge Ant+ to Bluetooth to use iOS devices when at hotel gyms. This allows me to have the gym bike’s power and cadence in the app. I use a Bluetooth HRM, but the WYÛR will bridge an Ant+ one. Great little device.
YES, but the WYÛR can also be used as your cadence sensor to simplify that bit (it doubles as a speed or cadence sensor). I don’t have the WYÛR (and it hasn’t been available for purchase very long) but I got the CÔRD not too long ago and shipping was very prompt (like in my mailbox in 3 days).
The NPE products also help with Apple Watch HR integration AND use of AppleTV. I would recommend that you play with it before your trip to get it all figured out, I haven’t completely figured out the CÔRD yet but I bought it more out of curiosity than need.
