- Zwift and apple TV – some questions
I’m running Zwift on my old laptop, and its a bit slow and the screen is a bit small.
I think the cheapest upgrade option is an apple TV and a screen. So i have a few questions….
Can i use a PC monitor? assuming i buy one with an HDMI input, i don’t need any smart functions? this looks likely to be cheaper than a proper telly.
The apple TV only accepts bluetooth connections, and only 2 inputs, I’m using a tacx T2240, which has bluetooth. I’m also using a garmin cadence sensor and a ANT+ heart rate monitor.
So I’ll need to buy a bluetooth HRM? (any recommendations?)
And my garmin cadence sensor won’t work anymore?
Anything else i need to consider?Posted 3 months ago
Yep should be able to use a monitor (if its a newer monitor you may already have a HDMI input?)
You can also increase the amount of bluetooth connections by running the companion app on iphone/android – so some of your devices could pair to your phone for stats. I think it’s bluetooth only though.
I have a wahoo tickr armband HR which works well for me..Posted 3 months agomayanMember
Just a quick follow up …
Works well, much smoother than the old laptop. I forgot about the sound – the monitor has no speakers, but it has a headphone socket so easy to hook up some external speakers – but something to be aware if anyone’s thinking of going this’s route.Posted 3 months ago
