    Connects fine but appears to be 0.5 MPH slower than actual speed

    Bought this a couple of weeks ago. There was no problem connecting with the Zwift app. I do walk rather than run and I find that the in game speed is generally about 0.5 MPH slower than what the treadmill shows.

    Worked great for a few runs I changed nothing on the PC. New new settings and no new apps installed. Reinstalled Zwift. No luck. Other Bluetooth devices, such as my HR strap and trainer work fine.

    I swapped a couple batteries. Still nothing. The light blinks green on impacts but it appears to not be transmitting. Also my Garmin watch can not find it.

    I regret my purchases.

    Eats batteries

    It doesn't say you have to remove the battery after each use, but I find if I don't the battery is dead, even after 3 or 4 days. The runpod is on my gym shoes, and those sit in my backpack on a shelf, so they aren't moving anywhere and there is no Bluetooth connection showing up on my phone.

    Hi Mike, the runpod should not be draining the battery while not being used. Please reach out to customer service and they will help you resolve this.

    Good but not great

    My setup is a bit unique. When out on the road, I run with my Stryd foopod paired with my Suunto watch. However, Stryd doesn't support pairing to two devices simultaneously, so I purchased the Zwift RunPod to pair with my phone when on running on Zwift. Thus, I have a Stryd on my right foot, and Zwift on my left when on the treadmill.

    I also now have three distance displays: Stryd on my watch, Zwift on my phone, and the treadmill display. Despite calibration, the Zwift RunPod remains 8-10% behind the treadmill, while Stryd is usually about 3-5% behind. I know getting cadence and distance with footpods and treadmills is notoriously difficult, but despite a few attempts at calibration, the Zwift RunPod is the least accurate.

    Thankfully, I'm only on the treadmill when there is inclement weather, which is rare. Further, I'm only losing maybe 3/4 of a mile by the end of the run, which I can live with. However, I don't know if the treadmill is inaccurate or Zwift, or some combination of the two. Regardless, if I calibrate the footpod to the Zwift app, I would expect it to be more accurate than it is.

    It would seem Zwift has given up on this device. I'm 45 minutes into trying to get it connected and still no progress. I've got a complete cycling setup that works no issue, even use a mix of Ant+ and Bluetooth through my phone/app. You'd think that'd work for the Bluetooth only foot pod, but nope. Only instructions I could find on zwift's website instruct you to download an app(Milestone Pod) that is no longer on the app store to update the pod itself. Super frustrating experience so far. Looking like I'll need a Bluetooth dongle for my PC to even try it out.

    Hi Brandon, If you're using Zwift on a PC that isn't running Windows 10, you'll need to use the Zwift Companion app on your mobile device to create a Bluetooth 'bridge'. With this bridge in place, ZC will convert the pod's Bluetooth signal into a format that your computer can recognize. You can download the Zwift Companion app on your iOS or Android mobile device, verify your mobile device is on the same WI-FI network as the device running Zwift and sign into the ZC app with your Zwift credentials.
