Sorry, I don't understand. I don't have a power meter, or are you saying the power meter inside the Direto?
Everything I've read on the zwift forums is that there's an issue with the Direto, Zwift and the resistance not working while using bluetooth.
Do I have to use bluetooth in order to use the Direto and Zwift? Can I not just use the ant and nothing else?
How would I delete the connections and start over? I've unplugged the ant and plugged it back in, turned off the bluetooth on my phone and Zwift has told me not to turn on the bluetooth on my pc.
It all worked fine with only bluetooth for about four sessions on zwift. Then the trainer made a weird noise and stopped the resistance function mid ride and has never worked with zwift again. It does seem to work on the Elite application.
There's multiple signals coming to and from your Direto. One is the power signal measurement which is what Zwift uses to calculate speed on the course. Then there is the FEC trainer control signal from Zwift to your trainer that controls resistance. I have found that unless the FEC control signal is on ANT+, and not Bluetooth, I won't get any resistance control. It also seems that if Zwift chooses BT initially, then even once I change it to ANT+ it still doesn't change resistance. I have found that I need to hit "search" under the trainer pairing section in Zwift immediately, and then select the ANT+ FEC signal. Then it works flawlessly. If you have issues, go back to the pairing screen, unplug the Direto for about 10 seconds, plug it back in, and then hit search to find the ANT+ signal and choose that.
