Where the Wattbike separates itself from the competition is in its ability to accurately measure over 40 performance parameters that help to improve technique and power output. The Wattbike offers 2% accuracy throughout the entire range of the wattage, which on this Trainer model is 1-3760 watts. This medium to high resistance is ideal for interval training or for those looking to push big power numbers.
Despite being a static bike, the Wattbike's fit is fully customisable, almost more so than on an actual bike and the real ride feel will quickly have you forgetting that you are not out on the road. The fan resistance is designed to replicate the feel of real riding resistances in a smooth and consistent fashion. Adding to this real feel is the chain and sprocket system that allows you to freewheel.
Various tests can be carried out on the bike to determine training zones using the integrated Wattbike Performance Computer. The Wattbike can connect to a heart rate monitor (sold separately) with ANT+ compatibility for an even deeper level of training accuracy. This also allows you to connect the Wattbike to ANT+ enabled Garmin devices.
The Wattbike Performance Computer is able to display a live Polar graph, which is capable of showing in real time the trajectory of your pedalling stroke. This allows you to improve your technique and efficiency by honing in on dead zones in their pedal stroke.
This computer can connect wirelessly to your Android or iOS device via Bluetooth, allowing you to record and save session data before uploading your ride to Wattbike's Powerhub software for further review.
Wattbike Expert (included) software offers the ability to review session data in real time in depth and share your data via social media sites such as Strava, Facebook and Twitter.
