How to Read the Heads-Up Display (HUD) During a Cycling Workout — Official Instructions | Zwift

– Hi, I’m Crystal. Today, I’m gonna show you how to read the heads up display on
Zwift in Workout Mode. The menu is where you can find features like your user profile,
avatar customization, settings, a summary of your
stats for the current ride, and more. This is where you’ll see all the intervals that make up your workout, you’ll also see the name of the workout, and your time remaining
to complete the workout. Next to each interval, you’ll see a star. You get a full star for
successfully completing an interval, you’ll get a half star for
a semi-successful interval, and no star for a failed interval. If your trainer has a hiccup
communicating with the game you may lose points for your effort, apologies in advance for that. This is where you see
your current efforts. The big number is your watts or power, your cadence and heart
rate will also show up here if you have those sensors paired. When you are Zwifting
you accumulate Drops. These are virtual currency
that you can’t buy, you can only earn. Use them to upgrade your
bike in the Drop Shop. The further you go, the higher you climb and the more calories you
burn, the more Drops you earn. This shows your current speed in Zwift and takes into account factors like drafting, the grade, and your weight. This is your total distance
traveled in Zwift for this ride. This is your total elevation climbed in Zwift for this ride. You can change the display
to imperial or metric units through Settings. This is your total moving
time for your current session, any time you stop, this
counter will stop as well. It’s important to note
that the segments tracker total elapsed time spent
inside that portion of the course. You earn experience points by Zwifting, you earn even more during
difficult workouts, you get more XP for hard efforts, long efforts, experience
points affect how you level up. The more you ride, the
more points you accumulate and the higher your level,
the current max level is 50. The rider XP bar is a progress bar that shows how far along you are to your next rider level,
you unlock new gear each time you level up. The mini map gives you a better idea of your location on course. You can change the view of the map by clicking or tapping on it. One tap zooms out a little bit while the second tap zooms way out for an overhead view. At the bottom of the mini
map is a zoomed out view of the course profile, so you can see what’s coming up for the route you’re on. The big pin is you and the arrow indicates the direction that you’re riding. All the smaller pins are
other Zwifters around you, the upside down pins indicate the segments on the course in relation
to your current position. The percentage shows the
current grade of the course, as the grade increases the
numbers will increase in size and turn red. The riders in your by list is a list of all the other riders online, sort of by how close they
are in proximity to you. You can see their watts per kilogram, approximately how far ahead
or behind you they are, the length of their current ride, and which country they’re from. If someone has a jersey for a segment it’ll show up here too. The action bar is normally hidden but you can bring this up
by pressing the up arrow key on a Mac or PC, tapping
the screen of your iOS or Android device, or swiping
up on the Apple Remotes touch pad if you’re using Apple TV. You can also access these titles from Zwift Companion App End Game. Now it’s time to get out there and Zwift. Have fun, I’ll see you in Watopia.
