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 ...

App works great. Its fun to watch the your results improve with each ride. With the current update the code error was resolved. I cannot however change the reset to Off for each lap. When I set to off from my PC it does not hold. I cannot edit this setting from the device (Edge 1030) or my iPhone.

Not sure. It works like any other datafield. Make sure you following the correct app install and configuration sequences.

Great app. Sometimes it will return a message about expired licence (Yes I have the latest version) but most times it works fine.

I use is all the time...but after about a month of use is says "Time expired enter Xert code" or something like that. I thought this was a free app?

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?

I am using with a Garmin 520. What's My FTP displays w/kg in the data field. How do I get it to display as watts instead?

Check the app settings using GCM or GE.

Worked perfectly initially on my Edge 1000. However now the FTP is indicated under my average power on a 2 hour ride. I think this was after the app update. I have the lap reset switched off.

Worked great until I did a reset on my Garmin EDGE 520. Reinstalled the app and now it’s stuck at an FTP of 300. I tried reinstalling it but that didn’t help. Now I read in another comment you need to turn off auto lap. It would be really helpful if the Developer could provide comprehensive instructions or a short walkthrough as how to install and what to watch out for. Am I missing something else maybe? Any setting I have to pay attention to? Another thing is I set the app to W/KG but that doesn’t change anything in the display and I dobt seem to be able to turn off “reset on lap”.

We've just pushed out a new update that has a setting to reset the app back to its default values. Check it out.

Works perfectly on my Fenix3, but on Edge820 the FTP is far too low. On the same ride I have 220 on Fenix and 150 on Edge.

Check your device's lap and the app's "Reset on Lap" settings.

Glad the developer is active responding to feedback! The app is very cool. I didn't realize that the FTP resets every lap button press until I saw their notice about that; I had thought that the app was just experience errors or I needed to update it or something. Definitely going to toggle that off for my riding since I have autolap enabled on my Edge (I don't need it resetting every couple of minutes - 5 miles). I think it should be more obvious that the app will reset its FTP estimate every time there's a new lap.

It’s great but it doesn’t work with the latest edge 820 firmware update. are you going to fix it?

Developer Reply

Nothing has changed in the Garmin ConnectIQ platform that requires any changes to the app software. Try using Garmin Express and/or Garmin Connect Mobile to re-install the app. Perhaps there was an error that occurred during the firmware update process.

By far the best Connect IQ feature I have found. It will be my method to gauge my FTP for this season. Many thanks to the developers.

Loved it when it worked. Stopped suddenly working. Wonder if it has anything to do with 12.50.

Perhaps try a reinstallation. Firmware updates can sometimes affect CIQ apps.

The FTP calculation resets when ever you click lap on you garmin, rendering it useless during an interval session.

By design. You can disable this in the app's setting with Garmin Express or Garmin Connect Mobile.

Simply great. The app works well on my 520. I've tested the app for 2 month in several trainings & a lot all-outs now (I was very sceptical) & I'm sure: it works. Furthermore the numbers at the display motivate me during the all-out which is also a big plus. Bye bye old (& horrible) 5 + 20 test. Welcome What's my FTP app. Great Job Xert. Thanks a lot :-)

Seems OK, but I cant remove from my 520 unit, either remotely using Bluetooth and my phone or when plugged in via USB to my PC?

I am very interested in this app! I am having a problem with my iphone 8 as it says it can't update the latest update though. States that it has an uninstall error. Any thoughts, as I would love to update. Great app otherwise!

Sometimes, Garmin Connect Mobile can be fussy with the CIQ apps. If you recently installed it, it should not need to be updated.

Is it possible to save the data of the ride to Garmin connect?

Your Threshold Power (FTP) and other fitness variables are managed and saved on Xert. We hope our app demonstrates the innovative capabilities of the Xert platform.

It's really a great and motivating tool ! Congrats for building it ! A feature that would be very nice is the possibility to show at the same time : - the FTP of the day - and the FTP of the lap. Is that possible ? Vincent
