Peloton Announces Bike+ With Apple GymKit Support

Peloton today announced a new stationary workout bike that is compatible with Apple's GymKit, allowing Apple Watch owners to easily pair with it for metric syncing and more accurate activity tracking.

The Bike+ features a 23.8-inch rotating HD touchscreen that allows users to switch between cycling sessions and Peloton's trainer-led floor-based workouts, while a new four-speaker audio system offers better sound quality.

The equipment also comes with new intelligent setting called "auto-follow" that allows users to let the Bike+ automatically adjust resistance based on the user's Target Metrics.

The Peloton Bike+ costs $2,495 and will be available to order from September 9. Anyone with an original Peloton Bike will be able to trade it in and get a $700 credit towards the new model. The All-Access Membership costs $39 per month and includes all of Peloton's guided instructor courses.


Also today, Peloton announced a shakeup of its treadmill lineup. The original Peloton Tread has been renamed Peloton Tread+ and the company is launching a new, more affordable model that will inherit the name of the original model.

The new Peloton Tread includes a 23.8-inch touchscreen, a smaller tread base, and a new running platform designed to make training easier. The new Peloton Tread will launch early next year and will cost $2,495.

GymKit was introduced in watchOS 4.1 in October 2017.

You can buy a great bike with accessories, clothing for all weathers and an Apple Watch for significantly less. Get out and see the world FFS, or at least your neighbourhood! Instead of being cooped up in the house like a chicken. FFS.
May work where you live, but up here in Canada we have this phenomenon called weather. Winter can be brutal. I feel ways safer on my Peloton than outside.

Love the outdoors, but for those of us in harsher climates, the Peloton is a great experience. The social part plus coaching is great as well.

Who knew a day would come where you would not only have to pay 2.5k on an airer but to pay a monthly fee in addition to it.

I wonder what the promotion will be called when the Peloton treadmill breaks after a few hundred miles of use (just like their bikes)
I just broke the 6k barrier for rides taken this year on my Peloton bike (that’s 6,000 minutes). That’s in addition to a larger (but untracked) total amount in 2019. The only problem I’ve had is that one of my pedals was starting to creak, which was traced down to a losening screw on the shoe plate. Maybe I got lucky?

Nevertheless, I will look at the new bike+ and see if any of the addons/improvements are worth the cost/hassle of switching. For me in these times of COVID-19, the Peloton bike has been a HUGE win.
