Xert Workout Player

Description

Getting started guide: http://baronbiosys.com/faq-items/using-the-xert-workout-player-for-garmin-connectiq</p><p></p><p>The Xert Workout Player plays Xert's unique Smart Workouts. Using Garmin Connect Mobile, the Xert Player logs in to Xert Online (www.xertonline.com), obtains your latest Fitness Signature, downloads your selected workout, configures the exact workout interval intensities and durations specific to you and then plays the workout using your power meter and/or smart trainer. With your smart trainer, it will do trainer control. If you have both a power meter and smart trainer, it will do powermatch and trainer calibration on-the-fly. Playing Smart Intervals, it will auto-adjust interval power and duration, reducing/increasing intensity and slowing/accelerating the timer depending on how an interval is executed in real-time. Easily adjust target power or trainer resistance with swipes / up-down clicks. It will learn your cadence preferences and provide indication of when you're pedaling too fast or too slow. The app also sends telemetry back to Xert Online so you can view your data online via the Xert Remote Player (https://www.xertonline.com/remote) and follow your workout progress. </p>

Fantastic workout player on the Edge 1000. The XERT workouts have helped me improve my FTP by more than 20% last year. But the power button broke on my 1000 and I have switched to the Edge 1030. Unfortunately, some (apparently not all) of the Edge 1030 devices freeze/stall with the workout player, and mine is one of them. I have 3 bikes with 3 different power meters and the problem occurs with all 3. Developer is working with me to trouble shoot. My old 1000 still works great indoors and outside (I use a paper clip to turn it on/off) with the XERT workout player. There seems to be some connectivity issue between the 1030 and the IQ Connect servers. The player freezes after an elapsed time reaches any number that ends __9:59. It restarts with reconnecting, but you will miss the intervals changing when it is stalled. I will update when this is resolved. I am using Public Beta 6.46 firmware. Same thing happened with the official 6.30 firmware. UPDATE: It turns out that using XERT workout player with Stanislav Bures' My Edge2 on the device causes the problem. Both data fields use Background Services, and maybe My Edge2 uses Background services even when it is only loaded and not just when it is running. Maybe Stanislav can fix that. All is great in the universe of XERT, though I also like My Edge2.

If you're not using a power meter for powermatch, configure the trainer on the Garmin sensors menu. If the Garmin works with your trainer natively, it should also work without issue in the app.

Love the app. Used it with my Edge 1000 without any problems. However, I switched to Edge 1030 and the app keeps freezing after a few minutes. Same problem after re-starting the app or the unit and also after re-installing the app.

Great info but Images and #'s are way too small for use while riding outside.

Trying this out, seems like it has a bug with the Edge 1030 at least where it doesn't save the GPS data when one is done. On the forums this was mentioned as a possibility, and I have now verified by doing a few attempts. This results in missing data on Xert, let alone connect/strava, etc. Still trying to track down more info on this.

This has been determined to be a firmware issue that is being looked at by Garmin. We hope to see it addressed in a subsequent firmware release.

I do not have a power meter and my trainer is "dumb". I tried to input figures in the Resistance submenu on my Edge 520 to have Xert calculate watts from speed/cadence/resistance in the same way that Zwift does. However, clicking on Resistance takes me back to the main screen. Is that to be expected? Does Xert not produce derived watts?

The player currently only supports devices with real power data - smart trainers and power meters.

No funciona de buena manera en Garmin 1030 Al guardar los datos no muestra velocidad, distancia y metros ascendidos.

Garmin is aware of this issue with the 1030. We hope to resolve it shortly.

Amazing app for inside training but no as good for outside. I am still trying to find something to train outside with with xert training and my garmin.

Check to see if it support ANT FE-C protocol. If so, then it should work fine.

If you have a power meter, this is the first thing to get and train hard with predictable results.

Works well except that speed doesn't go through in Strava then speed is not synchronized in Xert online (with EDGE 520)

Does this work with kinetic inride?

Developer Reply

Unfortunately, the Garmin Edge devices only connect to ANT+ trainers and Kinetic do not support the ANT+ standard. Our app relies on this connectivity.

Xert is by far the best trainer system I've trained (and I've tried a couple) and this app does the trick so serve you custom training sessions tuned to your fitness goals.

If I could install only one app on my Edge 520, it would have been Xert Player!

Yes. Perfectly. Will control the trainer in erg mode or resistance mode.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
