The combined gym equipment market has been heating up over the past few years, with Peloton as the top brand in the space. Today, the company announced a new home exercise bike called the Piloton Bike +, which has gymkit support for unlimited sync of workouts on the Apple Watch.
The Peloton bike will start on September 9, priced at 95,2495. The original Peloton bike is priced at 95 1895. The company also announced a new range of treadmills – Discover something new at Connect the Watts.
Gymkit was first announced at WWDC 2017, but adoption by manufacturers has been slow. The Peloton bike is easily the most prominent new product to hit the market with Jelkit integration. Synchronize bikes and watches for NFC readers to start a workout with just a touchless tap on the Apple Watch and share workout metrics.
When a workout is stopped on the clock, it pauses the bike and vice versa. The watch can contribute health data from sensors such as its own heart rate monitor, and the bike can tell the watch about things it knows, such as how fast the user is pedaling and what resistance level is being used. The end result is a non-stop exercise experience for more accurate reading and calorie estimation than the one used alone.
The Peloton Bike + has a 23.8-inch touch screen that provides UI and enables users to connect with Pelton’s fitness class and social features. The screen can be rotated up to 180 degrees. It includes four speakers and clear sound from instructors for listening to music.
Peloton Bike + will be on sale at launch in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Germany. Existing owners of the original Peloton bike can trade the bike + for মডেল 700 on their model.
