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>

Flawless for me on my 530. Indoors use. This a very high quality, feature packed app in par with the built in Garmin software. Beautiful, functional, useful, can even do powermatch and broadcast to the remote player! I can now free my phone and get rid of the ant+ dongles. Nice touch, it adds extra information on the fit file that goes to garmin connect. Excellent!

The player works a treat, although I always struggle to keep the power in the green zone while cycling outdoors, but hey I'm new to this. The problem, however, is after using the workout player, the next time I turn on 530 to just use the normal built-in activities I find that all the sensors I have registered are disabled and I need to individually enable them all again. Not just power/speed/hrm, but all the others like lights. Somewhat related, is Xert at looking to integrate with Garmins workout API to push workouts that way, rather than a dedicated app, or possibly making the workout player a field? At least for users that are using it outdoors and don't need it to control trainers.

Hi, I have installed version 3.1 on a Garmin Edge 820 and there are various issues. 1. Cannot access the app menu 2. Cannot exit the app once opened 3. App freezes when discarding an activity Pairing with trainer is ok, but given the above issues the app is unsable. Please help! Thank you

I installed it and set as instructed, but when I went to discard workout, Edge 1030 froze on on this page and nothing else helped, than holding power button to perform hard reset. This happened 4 out 5 cases when. Set up for powermatch with pedals as instructed. I dont have any other installed apps and no datafield, that could cause conflict

Great app EXCEPT Evert other time I try to start the app on my Edge 1030 the app refuses to login. Most of the time it works after a reboot but sometimes it takes 10-15 minutes just to get going.

The app relies on connectivity to the Xert server through your Garmin Connect Mobile interface. If the Garmin isn't connected to Garmin Connect Mobile, the app is not able to login. Ensure your Garmin is connected to Garmin Connect Mobile and your phone is connected to the Internet prior to starting the app. It will work 100% of the time if there is proper communication to the server.

You should remove all datafields (except for Xert datafields) on your Garmin since some interfere with running apps.

The Xert workout player is innovative software. There is a learning curve to the Xert approach to power metrics, so don't expect to use this software intuitively. Spend some time getting to know their system and you will find that this is great software.

Xert is adaptive. Just follow the Advisor whenever you want to workout. This app is great for indoor and outdoor rides. The premium monthly plan is 9.99 so... just cost you a few beers to try and you get the added benefits of weight loss.

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.

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.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
