Wahoo Bolt Showing 5,000 TSS

So my Wahoo Bolt is calculating TSS incorrectly. Really, really incorrectly. I put in about 90km today and the unit calculated TSS at more than 5,000. I noticed it started to calculate TSS incorrectly when I moved to my indoor trainer in January, and it seemed the incorrect calculation was tied to that. So I assumed it would correct itself once I moved back outside. I'll note that I did have the Bolt set to "Outdoor" for today's ride. Anything I should try or am I destined for a factory reset?

If using only a HRM it will use that to calc it. So verify your HR zones in the app that talks to the gps via your phone.

If using a power meter it uses that. So verify the power zones in the app.

If neither, no idea how it does that based on speed. I wouldn’t trust a TSS calc from weight and speed.

That's the thing: I use both a HRM and PM, and both zones are set in the app. I will go through that process again just to make sure, so thanks for flagging.

You might also want to watch your power meter output. I've got a Velocomp that makes me look truly awesome for the first 5-10 minutes after it's been recharged. (2500W? Yeah, that's my easy warmup before I get going good!) It settles down after that, and I've got 200 TSS in the bank before the ride gets tough.
