How to use the Apple Watch to monitor your heart rate when riding a Peloton bike or Tread?

Peloton do not have Apple GymKit on board, therefore you cannot utilize your Apple Watch as a heart rate monitor by pairing it with your Peloton Bike, Tread, or Tread+ through Bluetooth. That is, unless you use an app developed by a third party.

The heart rate monitor on the Apple Watch may be used with the Peloton Bike, Tread, and Tread+ via third-party apps. A third-party app for iPhone and Apple Watch is required if you wish to perform this kind of thing. Here are a few possibilities to consider:

  • BlueHeart
  • ECHO Heart Rate from the Watch
  • HeartCast

It’s important to note that some of these applications need subscription after a certain period of time, while others require you to watch advertisements before you can start transmitting your heart rate.. You may link your Apple Watch with a Peloton Bike, Tread, or Tread+ after downloading one of those apps – or an alternative – for iPhone and Apple Watch. See the following steps carefully

  1. the third-party program should be opened
  2. Set up the app according to the directions provided by the developer.
  3. Check to see if Bluetooth is turned on
  4. Choose a training session on your Peloton and get started.
  5. Choose “Heart Rate Monitor” from the drop-down menu that appears when you click “Start.”
  6. Under Available Devices, you should see the app you selected.
  7. Select ‘Connect’ from the menu that appears.

When the pairing pop-up displays on your Peloton screen, certain third-party applications instruct you to hit cancel rather than pair. To get an app to function, follow the instructions provided by the developer.

Once everything is set up, your heart rate will be shown on the left side of the screen, obtained directly from your Apple Watch. In comparison to utilizing GymKit on the Bike+, it’s not perfect, but for people who already own one of the other Peloton devices and don’t want to spend money on a chest strap, this is an option.
