Wattbike & Zwift

Apologies if this has been asked before......

Does anybody know how to configure Zwift on an Android phone to connect to a Wattbike.

I work away all week and the hotel I am in for the next few weeks has a couple of Wattbikes.

I tried to configure it last night but without success. I could get the Wattbike to connect to my phone but Zwift never found it

TIA

Andy

What's the connection type on the Wattbike? Zwift on Android is Bluetooth only, so if you were trying Ant+, that might be why?

Zwift on Android has only just crawled out of a very long period in development - so there may well be Android issues too. Have you checked the hardware compatibility list (here: https://forums.zwift.com/t/android-supported-devices-updated-march-9th-2019/44902) to check your device is supported?

Thanks Chris,

Only trying via Bluetooth (considered bringing an Ant+ dongle next week and then realised the phone won't support it)

My phone is on the list (One Plus 6) and I have a compatible version of OS on it.

I have a feeling it could be something disabled on the Wattbike but I don't know what so I can try and enable it or ask for it to be turned on.

I have read another article on Wattbike website that says it needs to be in Speed, cadence and power mode (SPC+PWR) but I think this is an Ant+ setting so I'm not sure it is going to work, Will be trying tonight.
