Trying to figure out what you need to run?
Other than a device that meets or exceeds our minimum requirements, you'll one of the following two combinations: a smart treadmill OR any treadmill and a footpod/Bluetooth shoes. Any treadmill/sensor using the native BLE FTMS protocol or the Wahoo GEM module should work, and we've included a list of treadmills sensors that we've confirmed below.
For a full overview of what you need to run in Zwift, see this article.

NOTE: ANT+ connections require a receiver; usually plugged in to a USB port. iOS devices require additional hardware to convert the ANT+ signal to bluetooth. Bluetooth devices do not require a receiver but use the native Bluetooth capability of Mac, iOS or Apple TV. The Zwift Companion app for mobile devices can also be used to receive Bluetooth and transmit to a PC via WiFi. See our Bluetooth article for more details.

We'll be adding full support for additional treadmills and sensors as we continue development, so don't worry too much if you have a setup that isn't listed right now. There's also a lot you can do even if you don't have the right equipment.
