I did my first ride today. Very positive experience overall. Here are a couple of issues I had and some suggestions:
- Pairing sensors: At the beginning, I had difficulties getting the sensors paired. I kept loosing the signal. Eventually, it worked and I’m not sure what caused this. I don’t have a suggestion how this could be fixed, but would appreciate if it could be looked into.
- I was using a laptop and I’m not experienced with these types of software / games. The laptop was not plugged in and I had no idea that it would drain the battery so quickly (battery died after less than 1 hour). I’d suggest a reference to this in a future user guide document.
- After the battery died I continued my workout for a few more minutes, got off the bike, took the laptop upstairs, plugged it in, and when the laptop came back to life, I saw that my avatar was still riding with a consistent cadence (presumably the cadence I was doing when the battery died). IMO in such a situation it would make more sense for my avatar to stop riding when the battery dies.
- Some of the onscreen information is very small and hard to read. The information on the right side that show the riders ahead and behind me is great, but I could hardly read the time gap; this should be a bit bigger in my opinion - or give the option of making it bigger (maybe with the trade-off that fewer riders are shown in the list).
