There are some of us Sufferlandrians out there that like to use multiple applications to capture our Suffering. Some of the more popular Apps are Trainer Road and Zwift. You can integrate run the Sufferfest App in combination with other training Apps. However, there are a few things that we must understand first.
ANT + Dongles
Each Application will need its own ANT + dongle. That means, if you want to run the Sufferfest App while capturing your data on a TrainerRoad free ride profile, you will need one ANT + connector for each App. Same goes for Zwift.
Now, some people have been successful using ANT + for one App and then connecting bluetooth for the other App. It is possible to do this, but the Minions at Sufferlandrian Services have found unreliable connection issues with the BLTE connection.
Running The Sufferfest App, TrainerRoad, and Zwift All Together?
"Hello, my name is Aaron. I would am speaking to you here today because I have an indoor cycling App problem. I cannot seem to cycling without making it as complicated as possible."
That was a bit of joke for all of you Sufferlandrians like me. Yes, I have connected The Sufferfest App, TrainerRoad App, and the Zwift App together all at the same time. It did seem a bit ridiculous and very unreliable when I did it. The only way I was able to get away with it was using ANT + and multiple devices. iPad ran The Sufferfest, iPhone ran TrainerRoad, and Computer had Zwift. I was in such a haze of App addiction, I don't remember the exact problems I was having, but there were some issues. This setup was not completely reliable, but not impossible either.
