App works fine; does the job 4/5
With the recent updates be deleted and reinstalled the app. It syncs fine after that and allows me to update the firmware. App works fine.
Does what it should do before each ride - zero out the power meter!
02/13/2018. APP STILL CRASHES. Fix this. Worked fine before! Can’t zero my power meter FIX THIS!!!!
Works well but sometimes updates are difficult to install 4/5
By Dr. Ducati
I do like my Stages powermeter. The software works fine but of course I use the power data via my bike computer or thru TrainerRoad. I have noticed that the updates usually take 2 or 3 tries to install. Not sure why.
Fix this app please 1/5
Latest updates causes app to crash when trying to calibrate the power meter. Worked fine before. Boo.
Firmware update not installing 1/5
By Cruise cyclist
Power meter Firmware update does not start to install after the iphone app indicates there is an newer version (2.0.84) and asking if I want to update. Used to work fine with previous versions. I think the updated app which now includes left/right power needs some work.
Works great!! Needs update visually. 5/5
This app works great but needs some sizing help. Formating for screen size is not correct.
Works great 5/5
This is my first power meter and so far it has been great. I have typically been using it with my Garmin 920 but with this app it will give me my power and cadence. Workts great no problems connecting to my meter. It had no issues when updating my firmware or calibrating the zero ofset, which is the main reason that I downloaded the app.
Won't connect to my power meter 1/5
I can't get it to connect to my device
I have two Stages Power Meters: a Gen 1 and a Gen 2. They both connect without issue to my Garmin (or to Zwift) but only the Gen 1 will connect over the app. I've tried swapping batteries and hard resets to no avail. It just won't work. ANT+ seems to be much more reliable, and given the lack of ANT+ dongles for iOS (e.g. none) Stages should release a desktop app for updates ala Quarq (I have a Quarq and Qalvin never has these issues).
Redundant.... maybe pointless 1/5
This app is not very useful. It merely displays a few pieces of info from that are ALREADY displayed by the computer on the spin bike. Not sure why I would need the same info displayed twice (i.e. Once on phone, other on bike computer). My biggest disappointment is that you can't store the info from your ride and take it with you. I would love to be able to save ALL the ride info with me when the class is finished.... total distance, avg RPM, avg power, total power..... And a nice bonus would be incorporation of heart rate info into a saved data file.
Needs a functionality update 2/5
The Stages APP needs a functionality update to make it really useful in a Spin class. Try to connect Bluetooth in a spin room and you are presented with ALL the bikes being used with no way to identify or differentiate your bike from a neighbor bike or any bike in the room being used. So it’s a hit and miss experiment to figure out your bike for this session only, and then if you do connect to your bike, you get limited information: Revs and Watts and not much more. It would be nice if the APP could mirror to some extent the Console on the Spin Bike.
The other areas needing improvement include capturing the data, saving it to you smartphone, and all the analysis that might provide.
Stages might want to take a close look at the functionality of the Concept2 Rower APP ErgData. This app provides great functionality and usefulness, capture of data and uploading your workout data to the phone for logs and performance analysis
I suppose if you have one bike with the Power Meter, this is a decent start on connecting, and managing firmware updates but it is limited with its functionality.
Looking forward to next Stages APP update.
On a side note, the Stages Spin bikes are one of the best and a personal favorite among many I have ever used in over 10 years of spinning.
Works great 5/5
Does what it's supposed to...I use it to install the occasional firmware updates and check the battery level on my power meter.
Updates device firmware flawlessly 5/5
My device needed a firmware update
Installed the app & turned on Bluetooth
The app detected my device
I touched firmware & voila it did the update
For in ride display & data deciding I use my Garmin Edge 800
Stages Power App 1/5
By Bike fast and turn hard
While the power meter itself works well, the app is useless. Will not connect through Bluetooth.
Crash Happy 1/5
By Some Guy 20
Selecting Bluetooth makes the app crash. Useless at this point.
Completely useless 1/5
By CV Gym
For the gym user this app is completely useless. It merely displays a couple of pieces of information that are readily available on the display for the bike. It also is unable to save any of the data as the older Stages app could. The Ant+ connectivity is useless unless you have a Wahoo dongle and those only work with iPhone 4s and earlier.
Works great now 5/5
By Trek Rider Too
Problem fixed. Connects to Bluetooth just fine now.
Only works with older iOS. 1/5
I upgraded my 6plus to iOS 9 and latest version of this app. It crashes ever time I try to connect via blue tooth. I tried an older version of this app and it still crashes. My iPhone 5 iOS 7 and the latest version of this app worked great. Need an updated version of this app to work with iOS 9.
Doesn't work 1/5
When selecting Bluetooth it crashes every single time. Please fix!
Persistent Issue Renders App Useless 1/5

Not compatible with IOS 9 1/5
By Az Zayas
Need to update for IOS 9 compatibility!!
Power meter keeps
Dropping out after multiple battery changes. Wanted to update firmware but app crashes every time when opening Bluetooth on both phone and iPad
Crashes with Bluetooth 1/5
The app is now useless because it crashes every time you try to connect by Bluetooth
By CP shop guy
New update causes it to crash when Bluetooth is selected. Need a fix.
Crash no IOS9 1/5
As soon as you select Bluetooth it crashes every time. Lucky I have an old IPhone 4s running IOS7. Please fix it asap.
Crashes when selecting Bluetooth 1/5
Problems with the power meter dropping out. Only way to update is with the app but selecting a connection option causes the app to crash.
BT Failure 1/5
Same as everyone else is reporting. App is crashing.
Crash and burn 1/5
Downloaded iOS 9 and the Stages Power App crashes as soon as I select Bluetooth.
Crashes every time Bluetooth is selected. Previous version worked just fine.
Crashes immediately when choosing Bluetooth.
Crashes all the time! 1/5

BT not working with iOS 9 1/5
App worked great before update, now it crashes when selecting connect with Bluetooth.
Crashes even after reinstall. 1/5
The app crashes every time I launch and then press Bluetooth.
Works Good. 5/5
The application works in every respect. Feature Requests - Add push notifications to alert users of firmware updates. Background downloading of firmware updates, that way they are ready to be pushed to the PowerMeter.
As advertised 5/5
Paired easily and updated firmware quickly. Zeroed and calibrated fast. Garmin Edge 500 seems to calibrate faster now with new firmware.
Great way to update stages
The power meter does not come with IOS device. 1/5
Of course I know that power meter does not come with the ios device but why would the manufacture only make an application to support their device on such a limited scale. They might of well wrote a program for linux……….. Cheapest crank based power meter? Don't for get to purchase your IOS devise…… Suddenly not such a great product. I don't plan to own iPhone and will return my Power meter now.
Simple for Zero/Updates 5/5
Love the no wire updates and zeroing. To other users/reviewers, this App CAN NOT function on an iPhone 4 or lower… Bluetooth on those phones/devices is just not advanced enough. There will never be an update (unless you have a dongle that BT Smart).
Great App, Thanks Stages Cycling!
Works Good! 5/5
Simple functionality, clean elegant interface. Not much to this app, but it connects quickly, calibrates/zeros with no issues, and displays the data from the power meter. Haven't used the firmware update yet.
