According to Peloton, it has released a software update for its Peloton Tread devices based in the UK and Germany, which will give members additional ways to wake up their devices. Beginning on January 11, consumers will be able to spin one of the knobs, use the power button, or use the stop button to wake up their devices.
Peloton announced this new update in the “Official Peloton UK Member Group” on Facebook.
Beginning January 11th, UK and DE Tread owners will be able to wake their Treads, when powered on but inactive, by pressing the stop button, interacting with the speed or incline knobs, or pressing the power button on the back of the Tread tablet. Tapping on the tablet touchscreen will not wake the Tread.
We are committed to providing our members with a best-in-class experience and can’t wait to see you on the Leaderboard!Peloton post in Official Peloton UK Member Group on Facebook.
Members have reported that they are still able to wake their device up by simply touching the screen, in addition to pressing one of the buttons. This update only applies when the device is in a “sleep” state but not completely off. It is not yet known whether this update will be applied to the US, Canada, and Australia.
