Control smart trainer with Garmin for your workouts

Control smart trainer with Garmin for your workouts


If you do not want to use Zwift or other virtual platforms, you can simply execute your AI Endurance cycling workouts by letting your Garmin control your smart trainer. For example, let your Garmin Edge 530 or Forerunner 945 control your Wahoo Kickr trainer. All smart trainers supporting the ANT+ FE-C protocol, including Tacx, are supported.

If you do not care too much for the entertainment that virtual cycling environments such as Zwift offer and simply want to get your indoor workouts done in a productive way, this is for you. And you get to save the Zwift subscription fee as well.

Setup

Here's how you do it:

  • AI Endurance automatically synchronizes your personalized and predictive training plan with your Garmin Connect. Read more about AI Endurance's Garmin custom workouts here.
  • A variety of Garmin's bike computer and watches can control your smart trainer, according to this Garmin website:
    • Edge 130 Plus/ 520 / 520 Plus / 530 / 830 / 1030 / 1030 Plus
    • Forerunner 945, Forerunner 745, Fenix 6 and others
  • Let your Garmin control any smart trainer supporting ANT+ FE-C protocol which includes Tacx and Wahoo Kickr.
