Distance not recorded, Garmin Xert Player

Maybe this is not the intended way to use the Garmin Xert player but here is my problem.

I train indoor using the Garmin Xert player on my Garmin Edge 1000. It is connected to my trainer when.I complete a work out , the distance is not recorded in Garmin, but shows online in Xert (see attached screenshots).

Thanks for your help!

From Garmin support site –
The device includes an indoor activity profile where GPS is turned off. When GPS is turned off, speed and distance are not available unless you have a compatible sensor or indoor trainer that sends speed and distance data to the device.

Xert apps use Speed from Power to estimate speed and distance for indoor workouts.

Thanks for the reply. I do have a smart trainer (Tacx Neo) and the distance (km) shows up in Xert when the workout is synced but no distance is shown in Garmin connect which find odd.
