Saw the Instagram post from SRM on this but couldn’t find it on AppStore - had to google it.

Uses Bluetooth to connect to the PC8. Uploading to Strava, Today’s Plan, etc. is so much easier and faster.

Faster would be good, wireless upload is a half day process
My PC8 has something rattling inside it, still works ok but I’m guessing not for long ...

The app downloads the activity to the phone and then uploads - for reference a 60min TrainerRoad session took ~1min to transfer from the PC8 to my iPhone then literally 20secs to upload to Strava, TrainingPeaks and Today’s Plan. It looks like the .fit file is stored on iCloud. The bad thing is you can only transfer/upload one activity at a time - pain in the ass IMO and hopefully will be changed in the next update.

Also, once you transfer the activity to the iPhone you can do click ‘Chart’ which allows some analysis visually - not sure how it compares to the app on the iPad since I haven’t used that app before.

Mine rattles as well - seems to work; but as you say it cannot be good in the long run !

On the fb page of Srm Italia there's a short video uploaded today where they explained that Apple has a limit for data transfered via bluetooth and they had no choice on it.

App is awesome, it's been fun watching it progress over the beta. Unfortunately due to iunjury I haven't been able to use if for the past couple of weeks, but last time I used it it was simple and painless. The only downside is the speed, but this is an apple issue.

As for the graphs there was discussion about what sort of data to show on the app, consensus seemed to be that basic info on the app is good enough until you get a chance to look at it in TP/SRMX/GC/etc...

Has your internal speaker stopped working? Same thing happened to me. I had to send it back and the screen was replaced.
