alerts for power meter low battery levels

Dash M50 with powertap pedals connected via ant.

When the powertap battery level gets low there should be a warning popup alert displayed on the dash (like Garmin does).

I know that I can manually check the power meter battery level but that needs a dozen keypresses and needs me to remember to do it. Far better to warn me when I need to deal with the power meter battery. Without an alert it's too easy to set off and find the pm dies a short way into the ride so there's no power data for the ride.

I have powertap pedal power meter but I assume the behaviour would apply for all power meters.

    Good to see that this is planned. But please can something be done about the accuracy too. On a 3 hour ride the reported level of the power meter battery went from 'new' to 'critical' which clearly isn't correct.

    It seems the accuracy is similar to the temperature which shows as 4 degrees C warmer than actual and gradient that fluctuates between +2% and -2% on a flat, level road (even with gradient averaging on).
