A turbo trainer, not a 'smart' trainer
I was trying this out for Rouvy or Zwift. Took me a few days and a call to Saris support to determine it's not really up to the task. First I tried Rouvy. But RouvyWorkouts is being upgraded to RouvyAR, with which this trainer doesn't sync (Rouvy doesn't have speed sensor available yet). It does sync with RouvyWorkouts, but you can't do the virtual training, only 'gym trainer' style workout profiles. It does pair with Zwift, though mine tends to have 'drop outs', but this is not a 'smart' trainer even with the speed sensor: a smart trainer changes resistance depending on action in the app. This can't. Zwift will fake it for you by making your progress in the app depend on your effort. The trainer itself is pretty solid and well done though, so a Saris product that actually was a smart trainer I'd probably rate a lot higher.
