App Icon



The vPower data field app has been developed for those who are not fortunate enough to own an expensive power meter. Firstly, this is not 100% accurate. As you can imagine, there is a lot of variables at play to calculate power on the pedals accurately. This is my best attempt to take all these variables into consideration and developed the app with the following key features:</p><p></p><p>Version History</p>

A few weeks ago. VPower only collect peaks of data while cycling. I replace the sensor but nothing happend. All other sensor on different bikes show the same result. What has happend ??

20 มีนาคม 2561, Shane_Coetser

This should now be fixed.

21 มกราคม 2561 | Version 1.80

Is ok in the flat route. During the climb it don't work beacuse don't read the % of slope and set wrong power ( normally from 10 to 70 watt max) . To calcolate the power the reading of the slope is necessary. I hope to use it with the next upgrade .

20 มีนาคม 2561, Shane_Coetser

Slope is included in calculation, although it depends on the device accuracy also. I hope latest version shows better results.

Hi, I wonder if other have experienced it, but since the last update I am getting very low values - avg of 25W with a max of 65W... Before the last update it was all working properly - the only difference is that I changed the average value to 10 seconds, I changed it back to 3 in the middle of the ride but it had no effect... Before this update it was working really nice.. any idea? Itay

9 ธันวาคม 2560 | Version 1.80

It doesn't work on my edge 1030. I obtain amazing high power values descending, while power is close to 0 climbing. It seems that calculation is not taking into account my weight and/or bike's, although they are correctly set in my profile (me) and in the data field configuration (bike)

28 พฤศจิกายน 2560 | Version 1.80

awesome, I use it since the day one, always improving.. the only problem, the beginning of the ride is very often a peak about 1000 watt or more, so the power graph on the website becomes less visible.. sometime I press the start button while moving on a flat road not pushing on pedals and it helps, but not always..

29 พฤศจิกายน 2560, Shane_Coetser

Do you want to send me the fit file so that I can see what parameters are causing the spike please?

24 พฤศจิกายน 2560 | Version 1.80

Great update now it works and i think it´s very accurate a little bit overestimated on aceleration but when i see the fit in connect i see a peaks with 65500 watts i hope you can fix this thanks

20 มีนาคม 2561, Shane_Coetser

Peaks in reading should now be fixed.

21 พฤศจิกายน 2560 | Version 1.80

tq for providing the update. now successfully installed at my edge 520. contacted garmin supported previously they said might due to mine is taiwan version...

17 พฤศจิกายน 2560 | Version 1.7.1-upd1

why it say apps not compatible when im trying to install at my edge 520 devices? pls help.

20 พฤศจิกายน 2560, Shane_Coetser

I released update 1.8 that should fix your problem.

Fantastic app... Can you upgrade also for Garmin 1030... Thanks

20 พฤศจิกายน 2560, Shane_Coetser

I released update 1.8 that should fix your problem.

27 กันยายน 2560 | Version 1.7.1-upd1

It woudl be to do a version for fenix 5x?? Thanks

22 กันยายน 2560 | Version 1.7.1-upd1

Please some help to use it. What after the download?

Bonjour à quand une version pour fenix 5x?

10 สิงหาคม 2560 | Version 1.7.1-upd1

Been using the app for several weeks and recommend it for anyone who wishes they could afford a power meter. I would prefer to use the watt/kg option but found the display does not show a decimal value only whole numbers like 1.0, 2.0... I'd like to see values like 1.6, 1.7, 1.8....

Overall it seems to work quite nice. The values are also seem to make sense. There is one problem that I've noticed - often (I could not find any repeatable conditions when it occurs) the power will drop to zero and then after few seconds will climb back. This happens at a time when there is no change in the slope, my cadence and speed. These frequent drops, have dramatic effect on average value which appears to be too low (compared to the values I am getting during the ride). It feels as if there is a memory issue or calculation limit on the garmin device. I am using the edge 1000. Did anyone else noticed this behaviour?

Muy buena! Lo de la gráfica integrada en connect es un punto a favor pero creo que debería hacer una estimacion de 3 o 5 segundos porque al ser instantanea fluctua mucho y, aunque seguirá siendo estimada, será algo más fiable. Todas las salidas me ha marcado bien pero hoy me marcaba al revés, es decir, subiendo me daba 5 wattios y bajando se ponía a 200 o más, es como si los cálculos con la pendiente los hiciera al revés.

11 เมษายน 2560 | Version 1.7.1-upd1

La aplicacion marca siempre la potencia instantánea y varía mucho. Deberíamos poder ponerla a 3 segundos o 5 segundos. Donde puede que la estimación sea más acertada sería en puertos. Pero aun así es un estimador. Seguiré utilizandola. En Garmin conect aparece una gráfica y la media y máxima potencia. Un saludo. Y espero que sigan desarrollandola.

2 เมษายน 2560 | Version 1.7.1-upd1

Great job! Only one thing: I don't know if it's possible to detect if GPS is off or if a trainer is connected and then turn on the trainer mode, and switch if off as you detect GPS is ON.

17 มีนาคม 2560 | Version 1.7.1-upd1

great app. would love to see option to set average 3s/5s/10s/30s

20 พฤศจิกายน 2560, Shane_Coetser

My latest 1.8 version now has this featured deployed for you.

16 กุมภาพันธ์ 2560 | Version 1.7.1-upd1

This is great and I think it is accurate. I really like to see the graph in Garmin Connect, but should show the average and maximum power in numbers. But it's great, Congratulations and very good work. En Español, -Está genial y creo que es certera. Me gusta mucho poder ver la grafica en Garmin Connect, pero debería mostrar la media y maxima de potencia en numeros. Pero está genial, Felicidades y muy buen trabajo.

Great app. I'm using it for dedicated intervals on a trainer. Since I use a Cycleops Super Magneto Pro, I would love to see its power curves added to the app for the fifths star.

20 พฤศจิกายน 2560, Shane_Coetser

Trainer added in version 1.8

Joey Campbell
14 มกราคม 2560 | Version 1.7.1-upd1

I've been using it for a week and think it's great. I don't know how accurate it is, but I like to see the trends of the numbers and"chase" down certain wattage during the high intensity parts of my ride. Thanks for developing the app!

31 ธันวาคม 2559 | Version 1.7.1-upd1

Fonctionne bien Une légère latence à l'affichage mais cela reste une estimation de la puissance

18 ธันวาคม 2559 | Version 1.7.1-upd1

Only just installed but looks great so far. Any chance of adding a power curve for a magnetic trainer?

20 พฤศจิกายน 2560, Shane_Coetser

I released update 1.8 that now has additional trainers including a generic magnetic trainer.

13 พฤศจิกายน 2559 | Version 1.7.1-upd1

La migliore!!! Il miglior misuratore di potenza.

Great app. A suggestion: should be optional in app config the time average of result display. in fit file real values, but in data field, 2, 3, 5, 10 sec average. A second option could be named fine tuning and user select the increment of the result, from -50% to +50%. To obtain the same values that strava calculation I reduce de weight of bike, in this moment I indicate 2kg and must be less. Vpower is still 10% higher that strava.

20 พฤศจิกายน 2560, Shane_Coetser

Latest 1.8 version now has settings for avg power.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
