Bought Elite smart turbo trainer but can't connect to anything

Postby poorlittlefish » 10 Aug 2019, 4:49pm

I bought an Elite Supercrono smart turbo trainer from Halfords that comes with a Misuro B+ ANT/Bluetooth device, with which my understanding was that I would be able to connect to apps like Zwift and Bkool etc. It will connect to Elite's own (crap) app on my old iPad, but I want to cycle along to video/virtual reality footage. I can't get anything to connect on my phone, which is a Huawei Honor 9 Lite (so I can't cast anything to my TV). On my iPad the sensor is picked up by the Rouvy app, but the app refuses to recognise that I am pedalling and any route just auto-pauses. I am on the verge of admitting defeat, but just wondered if anyone else has encountered similar connection problems and how they might have resolved them - thanks.
