Do you own a Satori Smart and are you looking to get more out of your trainings than the Tacx apps can provide? You can achieve this by connecting your trainer to your computer. That way, you can train using the Tacx Trainer Software 4, Advanced.
Controlling the resistance unit of the Satori Smart is not possible by a computer, but it does receive your performance data. For example, the computer software offers longer video’s in HD or Blu-Ray quality. While riding, the speed of the image is similar to your speed. Controlling the resistance has to be done manually with the lever on your steer.
To connect the Satori Smart to a Windows computer you’ll need the Upgrade Smart. This includes the Tacx Trainer software 4, Advanced, a control box to mount on your handlebar and the ANT+ Antenna.
The Satori Smart can also be used when it is not connected to a smartphone, tablet or computer. When doing so, you can adjust the resistance a by the lever on your handlebar in the same manner you would when the trainer is connected to an electronic device.
Since the Satori is not hooked up to the power net, you can use this trainer anytime and anywhere, also when you don’t have your smartphone with you. This makes this trainer ideal for a warm up before a race.
