Peloton Experiencing Bug with Power Zone Indicator (Target Power Zone) Feature on Peloton Bike/Bike+

Peloton is experiencing a bug with a popular feature amongst Power Zone riders. Members may have noticed over the past few days that the Power Zone indicator – which is a visual cue on Bike and Bike+ screens during Power Zone classes that displays which zone the instructor has called out – has been absent.

Update – The feature was restored on March 8th for some people, however, as of March 11th, the feature is still missing for others.

Peloton has confirmed to us this is a bug and they are working on restoring the feature – unlike the “Your Tags Working Out” feature, which was intentionally removed due to low usage in a recent software update.

The target power zone feature should be fixed “soon”.

The Power Zone indicator (also known as Target Power Zones) first launched a few months ago after years of requests from members. It displays as a white box on the power zone meter, showing which specific zone the instructor has called out. The indicator only appears on Power Zone classes, not other cycling class formats.

Furthermore, the indicator only works for those who have taken an FTP class (or those who have manually set their FTP), which is what sets and identifies the power zone scale for each individual member.

We will share an update when the Power Zone indicator feature has been restored.

    Thx for validating what I am also seeing (or not seeing, in this case…) I contacted Peloton Support via chat and they simply ran me through their scripts and have not gotten the message of the bug yet. They wanted me to factory reset my Bike+, so before doing that, I searched more and found this post, thx for this info. Otherwise, I would have reset my bike and have to re-enter all my prefs and settings. Hope they resolve the bug soon.

    Any update on when the bug for the white box on the power zones will be corrected?

  • Deb says:

    Still without the indicator on power zone rides. Any updates?

  • Scott says:

    Still missing for me (as of 15th March)…..

    When this feature is working (I did see it work for 1 ride), does it only appear on “newer” classes, where they added the zone while they were recording it? I don’t think I ever saw it on the Program PZ classes that were recorded in 2021.
