  • Power dropping on BT, cadence remains

    I've got an interesting issue and I'm not sure if it's the fault of Zwift, my Apple TV 4K or the Vector 3 pedals. 3 or 4 times now my power has dropped for several minutes in the middle of a Zwift ride. It comes back for a split second, drops again, then a little while later it will come back permanently. All the while my cadence continues to be reported without issue. Additionally I record the activity on a Garmin Edge 520 over ANT+ and the power doesn't drop over that protocol at the same point in time.

    How could this be happening? I figure with BT both cadence and power are being sent of a single unified channel, so if one drops, so should the other. This doesn't seem to happen with Zwift on the Apple TV with my other power meters or my ANT+/BT NPE CABLE bridge. It's happened 3 or 4 times in the span of months, so it's going to be hard for me to troubleshoot with different configurations.
