SMART ZWO files - Still smart after export in to other platforms??

Hello nice people,

I’m exploring Xert functionalities and was wondering whether or not a SMART Workout once exported to Zwift/Rouvy/RGT, etc keeps its SMART live and adaptive approach to the training. Or, on the other end it will be transformed to a fixed and conventional workout.

I’m asking this until I get my USB Ant+ stick… After I will try it by myself.


No. They will ONLY be smart if run on xert players such as xert ebc app etc…

To maintain SMART functionality, you can control your trainer with a Xert app (smartphone or Garmin Connect IQ player) while linking power only to your simulation platform.
Here’s how to do that with Zwift –

If you just want something to watch while training indoors another option is a solo session.
That entails running the workout on a Xert app while watching the Session Player on your PC/laptop/tablet. Quick way to test that is visit (2) Xert - Sessions (, wait a few seconds for Library tab to appear, find an entry of interest, select Play Now, then start the Xert app. That workout/session will be pre-selected, ready to Start.

Thank you!

I will definitely work with the smart function only. ANT+usb to connect pedal powers to training platform while maintaining them linked via Bluetooth to the Xert app. I will then use the Web Xert session over the training platform for the fun.

Tks again all for the comments and help.
