I connected my Garmin Fenix 6 with Wahoo Kickr. Unfortunately, the watch does not show cadence or distance from Wahoo sensors while driving. What to do?
Warm regards and thx for help,
Garmin F6 does not support ANT+ FE-C (or the Bluetooth equivalent)
And Wahoo in their infinite wisdom did not make the KICKR Bike transmit Cadence/Speed via BLE/ANT+ profiles
So if you have the KICKR Bike like me - only thing to do is to wait until Wahoo updates the Bike firmware with cadence/speed which they have promised to do.
Or get Garmin to implement ANT+ FE-C on the watches (which would be my favourite option) but also the most unlikely.
I have an Edge 1030 and it works as it has support for Indoor trainers and you can repeat outside rides. So ANT+ FE-C makes it possible for the consumer device to control the bike - so not only READ the data but tell the bike "Emulate up hill ride" etc.
But all I want on my F6 is to record the ride - as I find TrueUp to be not so true. :) between 1030 and Fenix plus it splits up your load etc. in one for each device.
But I don't know when Wahoo will launch the firmware update. So only in-between solution is probably to put power measure pedals and cadence sensors on your Kickr.
Strange, i use that combination, and have no problem with either cadence or distance. The cadence sensor send to both zwift (on ipad) and fenix6 saphire. The distance isn’t always 100 equal on zwift and the watch, but close enough for me. Forgot to ask, but you have paired the sensor and turn it on before you go ?
