The Pause Button: for the Little Moments You Can’t Ignore

Everything you need to know about this highly-anticipated feature.

The wait is over. Now, you can pause your on-demand class on your Bike, Bike+ and Tread so you never have to worry about missing out on your favorite tracks or finishing up those last few intervals.

How does it work?

Picture this: You’ve been wanting to take this class all week. From the music to the instructor, it's absolutely perfect. All of a sudden, an important call comes in. No need to worry! Just simply tap the screen and hold the pause button to confirm you’d like to stop the class. You’ll be able to check on the family without missing a single beat!

Now what?

Everything freezes. Your class, progress and aggregated metrics come to a complete halt for up to 60 minutes. You’ll still receive high fives, which you can respond to once you resume. And when you're ready to start up again, you can reconnect your headphones and heart rate monitor before you hop back in.

What happens to my place on the Leaderboard?

When you pause your class, you will lose your rank on the Leaderboard, but you will remain listed in “Here Now” as usual, ordered by total output. This will also be reflected on your scorecard and workout summary. If you decide to take that same class in the future, you will appear unranked on the “All Time” Leaderboard for the full duration of the class, though still ordered by total output as usual.

Hold on! What about my PR or challenges?

We’ve got you covered! We love our achievements as much as the next person. Pausing a class does not impact your ability to progress in Programs, challenges, achievements, streaks, milestones or personal records.

If I pause a class on my Tread, will my Tread come to a stop?

Absolutely! Pausing will slow the belt down until it comes to a complete stop.

Can I lock my Tread after I’ve paused my class?

Of course you can. You will have the option to lock your Tread immediately once it comes to a complete stop. If you don’t lock your Tread manually, Tread Lock will automatically activate after 45 seconds of inactivity. Once you’re ready to jump back into your class, just unlock your Tread, click the play button and hop back into your class.

We hope this feature is everything you imagine. Sweat without worrying about interruptions with the long-awaited pause button.
