Ratings and Reviews
As far as when Zwift works, I would always give it a 5 star rating. However, getting zwift to work is always such a struggle. I have refrained from complaining for a long time, but I can’t hold back anymore as it is hard for me to be able to use the app every single time I try. The calibration freezes on the spin down, and sometimes I have to restart the app up to 10 times before it will complete to 0 MPH to complete (it usually freezes and stops at either 2 or 4 MPH, and will not complete) . Also, after the new update when I FINALLY did complete the spin down, I got on the map (Watopia) and started pedaling. When I started pedaling, all the sudden I was going 35 MPH, and it said my power output was 490 WATTS. I was barely spinning at a warmup pace, and no matter how many times I restarted/recalibrated it wouldn’t fix the power output error. Zwift has been such an amazing training tool, but it still feels like it’s in a test phase as far as development. Maybe instead of keeping on trying to give us new maps (we all want 24/7 watopia) try fixing all of the bugs the app has.
Regardless of the issues I still LOVE the app and the program! I just want to be able to hop on and spin with ease!
Addicting - also one bug that needs to be addressed
Zwift is hands down the most addicting way to ride an indoor trainer. The way they’ve made it into a game makes every ride a competition against both yourself and hundreds of other riders. You can compare yourself instantly with riders from around the world to see how you stack up.
The only drawback is that if you lose internet connection for even a second during a ride, the app won’t upload your complete ride. I’ve heard from support that they’re working on a safeguard for this. But, I logged a ~16 mile ride with over 1000ft of climbing only to have it log the first 7 miles of the ride only. I hope this gets rectified in the future for all the zwifters who deal with spotty Wifi connections!
Premium price, lackluster value
Being a video gamer and an avid cyclist, my impressions is that Zwift wants to charge a premium price, like World of WarCraft, but fail to offer certain elements of online gaming that are commonplace. For example, a custom ride or game is not available to ride alone with your friends so you are stuck riding with everyone else in the virtual world and dealing with tracking them on the enormous list of riders nearby.
Riding with friends (side by side) is very challenging and Zwift has failed to add a tether mode so groups can more easily stick together in the massive world of riders.
They also need to add the ability for at least pc players to host worlds and rides for certain groups to ride together.
For $15 a month, Zwift offers too few places to ride. I have seen it all already after only a couple months of membership. Again, other games offer massive worlds which take many hours to explore.
In short Zwift is a novel idea and in some ways it is implemented in good ways (there wonder training regimens which a member can follow to improve) but the game is too one dimensional as a game. Some days I just want to ride (play)alone or with a buddy, if they can do that since Halo 1, why hasn’t it happened in Zwift yet?? As soon as I can start riding outside, I’ll save the $15 a month and cancel.
