AI Gym 'Tempo' Announces Integration With Apple Watch

The AI-powered fitness gym "Tempo" today announced integration with the Apple Watch, allowing Tempo customers to sync their workouts and fitness and health data directly to their Apple Watch.

Amongst its demographic of users, Tempo says that more than 70% are iPhone users, with a smaller 35% owning an Apple Watch. Tempo had been teasing Apple Watch integration for some time, and with it finally arriving, Tempo customers now have access to a host of settings, features, and data right on their wrist. During workouts, for example, customers can pause and resume sessions without needing to touch the Tempo display, minimizing distractions and wasted time.

More importantly, Apple Watch integration means that Tempo customers will no longer need to rely on third-party or external health monitoring equipment during their workouts. Using the built-in sensors on the Apple Watch, Tempo customers can now access their heart rate, calorie burn, and additional data synced with their Tempo workouts.

For those unfamiliar with Tempo, the company calls itself "the only home gym with interactive coaching" that uses 3D sensors with advanced AI technology to help customers perfect their form and workouts during training. Tempo offers not only real-time feedback but also coaching and "premium" dumbells worth upwards of $1,000.

Re-design “only”, no new health features, or have you heard something I haven’t?
I agree, it may be just the re-design only but I’m sure Apple will introduce new software integration via an update.

Not nice.

The fact that EVERY OTHER workout app was made from scratch to sync with Apple Fitness / Health makes this a backwards setup from day one.

What are you saying? That Tempo was late to add this functionality? Or am I misunderstanding? You could argue that, yes, but it's certainly not a "backwards setup" to offer the compatibility moving forward. My gf has a Tempo and an Apple watch, and this is exciting news for her!

I will never understand the obsession with AI.
It helps get older investors to think you’re the next big thing.

oh by all means it’s a great addition but fitness tracking has been in WatchOS since the S3 and I’ve used at least 6 different workout apps that supported this from day 1. Just odd that this was an after thought. I worry about bugs unless it was fully re-written but users will see.


what do you mean though, that watch os should be made compatible to various apps?
Lol no no. I mean fitness tracking and synching in very many WatchOS apps have had this functionality for years now. What I’m saying is it’s strange to add such features long after the app was released - its a disservice to iOS and WatchOS users as a critical and ease of use feature/function was omitted, until now.

yes great the function is added. The question was why was it not added initially during development?
