PowerIT: maximize your training

What is Power?

Power is the rate at which energy is used (energy over time) and is measured in watts. In cycling, energy is expressed in terms of work (such as how hard you have to work to ascend a climb). It’s a constant snapshot of your work rate at any given moment. It’s the building block from which all power-based training flows. - Bicycling.com

What is Power IT?

Power IT is an application that calculates the power output of the cyclist based on the speed measured by a speed sensor attached to the bike and the power curve of an indoor trainer. Power IT will be able to broadcast the calculated power to an Ant+ display device ( ie. Garmin Edge or a Garmin 910xt ). If your using a Garmin device, average power, normalized power(NP) and training test score(TSS) will automatically compute this data fields based on the calculated power generated by Power IT.

How accurate will be the calculated power?

Every power meter implements its own algorithm to measure power. Doing a side by side comparison of the power measured by an actual power meter and the calculated power might have a variance of +/-50 or even more. But as long as you keep your training environment constant(tire pressure, tire contact on the indoor trainer, Power IT setting, etc. ), you will gain the benefit of training with power using Power IT.

Why buy Power IT instead of an actual power meter?

I believe you know the answer for this. Power IT is a poor man's power meter. With Power IT you will gain the benefits of training with power. If you see the benefit of using power-based training, I would not stop you from buying an actual power meter. Power IT just gives you a cheaper of option of doing a power-based training. Just don't brag your power output with a cyclist using an actual power meter.

What you need?

To use the application, you will need an ANT+ Speed Sensor, ANT Radio Service (available at the Play Store). Additionally, if your android smart phone does not have an integrated Ant+ chip, you will need an Ant+ USB dongle(https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/shop-by-accessories/fitness-sensors/usb-ant-stick/prod10997.html), a USB OTG cable, and ANT USB Service(available at the Play Store).
