Bioshift Cadence Optimizer


Bioshift for ConnectIQ is a unique cadence metric that optimizes your cadence by using a gauge. The gauge slides up when you're pedaling too fast and slides down when you're pedaling too slow, relative to Bioshift's determined optimal cadence for a given power output.</p><p></p><p>The app does not require configuration as it includes a self-learning initialization process where it learns your specific optimal cadence profile based on the gears you self-select and your power output. Once it collects sufficient data, it will provide guidance on your gearing based on this. The Bioshift logo will flash during the self-learning stage. </p>

Didn’t seem to learn anything after using it for over a month except it really drained my battery. Now there’s a problem uninstalling it.

I have the same navigation issues with the whole suite of Baron Bio data fields. With the navigation up and combination of MPA, etc fields navigation is super slow and doesn't update along with poor battery life. This is not a one off issue as was replied to another comment. Yesterday I had the whole Garmin factory reset itself after the Garmin would reset as the fields tried to connect for an updated profile.

Superbe merci

Available now.

Great app, very useful. It would be great if we could get an update with slightly smaller font (to match the rest of the data fields) and perhaps a tiny bit wider indicator strip for us who run it in 1 by panel and not across two. As with everything Armando and Baron Biosys do great bit of kit - I am on happy, paying Xert customer. Oh and after the IQ 2.4.1 it seems to have broken on Edge 1000 at least.

November 21, 2017 | Version 1.0.0-e81

Awesome app but the developer need to make it compatible with the Edge 1030.

Great data field option and worked flawlessly on my Edge 1000. NOW PLEASE MAKE THIS COMPATIBLE WITH THE EDGE 1030!!!

Had to delete this and other Baron Bio Connect IQ apps. REALLY drained battery, and interfered with navigation. I'm not sure which app/data fields caused this, I only know that my battery life returned and I had active mapping and navigation again. Beware! Other than this, they worked as described; I just needed navigation and an active battery more.

We haven't had any reports from users having issues with battery life using our apps. There may have been some conflict on your unit which we can look to resolve. Please contact [email protected] with more details and we can look into this further for you.

molto interessante, ho sostituito il campo cadenza con questa +++++

Works as designed! Matches up pretty well with my own perceived optimal cadences and it's nice to have that confirmation. I suggest replacing normal cadence with this if you have room on the screen.

Very cool. Great data field to replace cadence with!

Ottima app, precisa e sempre funzionante!

I'm a real fan of this application. It's been really useful to maintain a higher and more efficient cadence than I would normally otherwise, with the visual slider much better than staring at a cadence value. Helps you pace on long ascents as well.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
