Checking battery status in the StagesPower app

StagesPower icon

If you have the StagesPower app installed on your smart phone or tablet, you can easily check the status of your power meter's battery. The StagesPower app displays an estimated battery life in the lower right corner of the app's home screen. The battery indicator may take 5-10 seconds to show up after a connection is made through the app, but once it loads will give you an easy visual reminder on how much battery life you should expect. This battery indicator will display green from the time the battery is new until it starts to run low, then changes to yellow when the battery has only 15-20%, and red at 5% or less power remaining. Keep in mind that battery life is being estimated and that expected remaining time can vary slightly.

Checking battery status on your Garmin head unit


On some Garmin models, you are able to check your battery status within your head unit. The power meter does only send battery updates every few minutes, so it may be helpful to check after the power meter has been on and connected to the Garmin for several minutes, otherwise the Garmin may report that sensor information is unavailable since it has not received the information yet.

Gen 3 power meters with an LED indicator


LED indicator location at the center of the power meter
