Heart Rate Monitors
Heart rate monitors can provide valuable additional training data, and are a recommended optional accessory.
To view data from your heart rate monitor, connect it directly with your training app, bike computer or smartwatch, not with your trainer. Check for compatibility between the heart rate monitor and the device or app.
Speed and Cadence Sensors
Fliiiight has highly accurate speed and cadence sensing. A separate speed and cadence sensor is not necessary. Note that spoke magnets for other sensors can interfere with Fliiiight's optical sensor, leading to poor road feel and difficulty detecting the wheel.

A powermeter is a great tool for taking the guesswork out of your outdoor training, but you won't need one while you're using the Fliiiight trainer. Fliiiight has its own highly accurate way of measuring power.
If you already have a powermeter installed on your bike, just be sure to connect to your trainer, and not your powermeter as the source of power in your training app.
Using "Power Matching" features available on some training apps is not recommended. These features can cause commands from the app to lag and interfere with ERG tracking. If want your trainer to match a specific powermeter, you can learn how to adjust the calibration here. Note that small variations in instantaneous readings are completely normal.
