What's My FTP? - Xert

Description

This revolutionary new app determines your FTP *on-the-fly*, continually updating and increasing the value the harder you ride. Using a sophisticated Xert™-based algorithm, the app uses patterns in power data coming from your power meter and looks at how you fatigue to provide an estimate of your FTP. Use it during regular riding or use it during FTP tests, if you prefer. You don't have to ...

Just given 3 stars as when it was first installed it was reasonably accurate although easy to spoof and get an extra 10-15 W by putting in a surge in the last 2 mins of an 20 min FTP test. Recently it's stuck on 200 W whether it's getting power from PT hub, Quarq crank or Zwatt crank arm.

For best results, the first time you use the app, perform a Peak Power effort (i.e. obtain your highest power possible) while you are fresh and before you attempt an exhausting effort. Look for an opportunity to put out your highest wattage possible first and from then on you should be good to go. If previous power data errors are causing it to now show invalid values, simply reset the app using the reset function in the app's settings.

i am struggling to get it to show up on my fenix 3 HR. I have tried to install it several times with resets of the watch, but it does not show up on the programs. Any help would be appreciated.

Have tested this app on my Edge 810 over three solid rides now (two outdoor and one trainer ride using Zwift). It's given a pretty spot on reading of my FTP compared to my past test results and the effort I put out for those rides. Would definitely recommend it. Beats doing an old school 20-minute test! tempocyclist.com/2018/06/12/garmin-iq-whats-my-ftp It would be good if the final figures were stored somewhere for future reference. Maybe they are and I just haven't figured that out yet?

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
