Troubleshooting

If your AirPods don’t connect, don’t worry! Most reasons why they aren’t connecting are really simple to sort out.

Here are a few reasons why this might be happening:

  • First, your AirPods might be connected to another device already. It could be as simple as you haven’t disconnected them from your phone. Turn the Bluetooth off on your phone or disconnect the AirPods from it and try the steps again.
  • Make sure the Bluetooth on the Peloton is actually on before you try connecting and make sure the Peloton isn’t connected to something else.
  • Some Bluetooth devices may need to reset before they sync to the Peloton or the touchscreen. So you may need to reset and reconnect a second time before it works.
  • Make sure your AirPod case is charged or you may have issues connecting.
  • You might need to reset your AirPods, so if nothing else seems to work, give this option a try.

Connecting your AirPods to your Peloton is luckily a really easy process and you don’t have to worry about spending too much time pairing the two together.

If you’re having trouble connecting, remember to check the troubleshooting section for anything you might have missed in the setup process.
