You choose your preferred Speed Input:

1 - Select the speed your treadmill is moving on the app and this is transmitted via bluetooth to your receiver.

2 - Attach the iPhone security to yourself and run. The iPhone's motion sensor will estimate your speed and transmit this to your bluetooth receiver.
****** iPhone 5S and above. *****

3 - Use your phone in combination with your Apple Watch. The Watch will send Speed, Cadence and Heart Rate via your phone and transmit these to your bluetooth receiver. (Watch workouts can be saved as part of your daily activity rings)

Notes:
• TSS Watch Module - requires an Apple Watch to calculate Heart Rate, Cadence and Speed data.
• TSS Watch Module integrates with the Health App on your iPhone to contribute to your Activity Rings. It will request permission to access the relevant data types associated with a workout.

Q Can I use a PC ?
A. No and Yes. Zwift does NOT support a direct PC connection for your Bluetooth Speed Sensor, you need to connect via the Mobile Link app. Unfortunately you cannot run TSS at the same time as Mobile Link so you will need two iPhones :(
