How to connect the Power meter


Rouvy enables to connect the power meter as trainer  It's little confusing, but in fact, it doesn't matter what trainer you use, Rouvy reads the accurate power from the power meter. The resistance must be controlled by the user manually, but Rouvy knows the accurate virtual power and converts it into virtual speed. Rouvy supports most of the power meters, for sure check the compatibility list.

Rouvy calculates the virtual speed to be able to compare the results across all users and trainers. Read more about how the virtual speed is calculated here.

The app needs to read the current power from the external power meter that communicates via both ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart protocols, some support one protocol only. Please, check the documentation to your power meter what protocol is supported. Based on protocol and the platform you can check what all accessories you will need to connect power meter with Rouvy.
