Ratings and Reviews

Easy peasy!

We purchased a treadmill in January of 2021 that has BLE heart rate monitor capabilities. After doing some research, I ran across a number of positive reviews for the ECHO app. When I first got the app, the brand of treadmill that we bought wasn’t listed in the available manufacturer list but I tried each one just to see if any may end up working. Sure enough, one of them worked and I emailed the ECHO team to share what I found to work. Figured it would benefit other users. Within a week, the app was updated and the brand of my treadmill was listed and worked perfectly. I’m not naïve enough to think that my email was what added my brand to the list but it just showed that they had already been working on updating the app. They even reached out to me a while after just to see if things were still working right. They certainly have. I have a series 6 watch, non-cellular, and an iPhone 11 Pro Max. Everything has worked flawlessly for about three months now. I definitely recommend the ECHO app if you have a BLE capable treadmill.

We love that! Thanks for trying on a new treadmill brand and providing us with the information so that we can add it for other users!

Works great!! One of the Most Valuable apps I have

After going through at least 5 Peloton Heart Rate Monitors, I was in search of an app that would allow me to use my watch as my heart rate monitor while seamlessly integrating and communicating with my peloton machine. This app does exactly that!! Anyone that owns a Peloton know their HRMs are garbage and expensive to replace. Even when they are working, they don’t report data correct and can swing vastly from a very low BPM to very high for no reason at all. With this app, you can ditch the Peloton HRM and instead use your watch (I have Apple Watch 4) and it works perfectly!! The FAQ section was critical foe installation as it required me to clear the cache and do a couple other things which then allowed foe seamless connectivity and data reporting. Those additional steps took all of 2 minutes... be sure to follow both of the steps if you have connection issues.

Yes! Peloton users be sure to check out our FAQ. Thanks for the great review.

Lost my 1295 apple move streak

I installed this on Wednesday so that I could get my heart rate up onto my new Echelon X5s stationary bike from my iwatch. I used it two days but didn’t work great and kept dropping my heart rate from the bike screen, so I uninstalled the next day on Thursday. A few minutes later I saw that all my red circle from Wednesday & Thursday were gone!!!! I had enough time to still close it on Thursday by doing more exercises but Wednesday was gone and it ended my 1295 day streak (3 1/2 years) even thought it still shows my two exercises on Wednesday which add up to more than enough to close the red ring and it still shows the longest streak badge I earned that day, but the red is gone and on Thursday it said my streak is 1 day and today after I closed my red circle it says my streak is 2 day, so don’t use this app if you have a long streak and that matters to you because I used that 3 1/2 year many many time to keep exercising every day to keep the steak going and now this company has stolen that from me!!! Yes I have talked with apple technology, got a ticket and they called me and I told them what happened and they could only say sorry nothing we can do.

Hey Charlie, sorry you lost your workouts. When you delete an app, it also deletes the Health data associated with it. In your case, it deleted the workouts that contributed to your streak. Please follow the directions I sent you to restore those days of workouts and regain your streak. Thanks. [email protected]

Once again, I’m here to talk about Peloton. Look, it’s one of my favorite parts of the day, it’s where all my most beloved parasocial relationships exist, and I’m getting jacked (jacked, in my case, means that my goal for 2021 is to be able to do one (1) pushup). However, sometimes even your true love can disappoint you. Peloton recently made some changes to their system, changes that, TBH, I find personally offensive and hurtful. Mainly, they changed a few details about heart rate measurements. Before, you’d have a separate heart rate monitor (Peloton sells one, but it is notoriously bad and no one recommends it), and you’d put that on, sync it to the bike or the app, your heart rate would display on the screen, and it would help you get more accurate metrics. When I was still using my DIY setup, I got a Scosche Heart Rate Monitor (I wrote about it here) and it was great, but then I got a Bike+, which has Apple Watch connectivity, so I didn’t really need a separate heart rate monitor anymore.

Then Peloton got rid of the Apple Watch feature on bike bootcamps. This was incredibly rude and, in my opinion, unnecessary, but whatever. THEN they added a feature called Strive Score, which is confusing, or maybe I understand it completely and I just don’t think it’s that cool. Either way, now heart rate is a key part of every workout. I do like that Strive Score is totally personal, so you can use it to compete, but not against anyone else. As someone who loves a reward-based system, but hates competition, this appeals to me. Plus, I like how the heart rate displays in huge font on the bottom of the screen while you do floor exercises. So I dug out my old Scosche and decided to use it with my Bike+.

But it didn’t work. It was unusable! It would connect and then disconnect and then connect again, over and over, every few seconds, throughout my entire workout. I mean, I assume it would have happened for the whole workout, becasue after about 5 minutes I ripped it off my arm and threw it on the floor. I needed some kind of solution, and I found it.

How to use Apple Watch with Peloton

(Pocket-lint) - Peloton offers a number of different products, some of which play very nicely with the Apple Watch. 

While the Peloton Bike+ plays the nicest thanks to the integrated Apple GymKit offering, the Peloton Digital app - that doesn't require Peloton equipment - has an Apple Watch companion app, enabling you to use the heart rate monitor on your wrist for more accurate statistics when doing a workout through the app.

There's also a workaround for those wanting to use their Apple Watch as a heart rate monitor on the Bike, Tread or Tread+.

Here is how to use the Apple Watch with Peloton products.

How to connect Apple Watch to Peloton Bike+

Peloton's Bike+ has Apple's GymKit on board. That means that when you go to start a new ride or workout, you can simply hold your GymKit-compatible Apple Watch (Series 2 and later) up to the top of the screen on the Bike+ to pair them.

Once connected, the Bike+ will automatically start a workout on your Apple Watch and use the heart rate monitor on the Watch to present your heart rate on the Bike+'s screen in real time and help determine your Strive Score. The workout will automatically end on your Apple Watch when the ride ends and you can find the post-workout details in the Activity app on your iPhone, as well as the Peloton Digital app. 

There are some rides that aren't compatible with GymKit, like the Bike Bootcamps, but for most standard rides including Arms and Intervals, the GymKit integration enables you to use your Apple Watch as a heart rate monitor on Bike+. Follow the steps below to get it working:

  1. Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone
  2. Tap on the My Watch tab at the bottom
  3. Scroll down to 'Workout'
  4. Toggle on 'Detect Gym Equipment'
  5. Pick a ride on the Peloton Bike+
  6. Press 'Start' 
  7. Hold your Apple Watch up to the top of the screen
  8. Tap 'Connect' on your Apple Watch 
  9. Press 'Start' on the Bike+ to start your ride

If Apple Watch is connected properly, your heart rate will appear on the left of the screen when the ride has started. If you're having trouble connecting, or your Peloton Bike+ is not pairing with your Apple Watch properly, you may need to restart your Apple Watch (hold the Digital Crown and side button together until the Apple logo appears), or turn your Bike+ off and on and try again.


How to track heart rate using Apple Watch on Peloton Bike, Tread or Tread+

The original Peloton Bike, as well as the Peloton Tread and Tread+ do not have Apple GymKit on board and currently, it is not possible to use your Apple Watch as a heart rate monitor on these devices by connecting it through Bluetooth. At least not without a third party app. 

There are a number of third party apps that make it possible to use the heart rate monitor on Apple Watch with the Peloton Bike, Tread and Tread+ though. If this is something you want to do, you'll first need to download one of the third party apps to your iPhone and Apple Watch. Some options include: 

  • BlueHeart
  • ECHO Heart Rate from the Watch
  • HeartCast

It's worth mentioning that some of these apps have a time limit before you have to pay, while others make you watch adverts before you can start casting your heart rate. Once you've downloaded one of these apps - or an alternative - to your iPhone and Apple Watch though, follow the steps below to pair your Apple Watch with your Peloton Bike, Tread or Tread+.

  1. Open the third party app
  2. Follow the instructions for the app you've chosen to get it set up
  3. Make sure Bluetooth is enabled
  4. Select a workout on your Peloton
  5. Tap on 'Heart Rate Monitor' tab under the start button
  6. You should see the app you've chosen under Available Devices
  7. Tap 'Connect'

Some of the third party apps tell you to press cancel rather than pair when the pairing pop up appears on your Peloton screen. Do what the respective app tells you to get it working.

Once you've connected everything, you should see your heart rate on the left of the screen taken from your Apple Watch. It's not as flawless as using GymKit on the Bike+, but it is at least a workaround for those that have one of the other Peloton products and want to use their Apple Watch as the heart rate monitor rather than having to buy a chest strap. 

How to use your Apple Watch with the Peloton app

The Peloton Digital app has an Apple Watch companion app, as we mentioned. That means that when you start a workout on the Peloton Digital app, whether strength, cardio, yoga or one of the others from the range of options, your Apple Watch will automatically start a new workout and you'll see metrics, including heart rate appear on your wrist.

You'll need to make sure you have installed the Peloton companion app on your Apple Watch for it to work, but otherwise, it's a pretty seamless experience, working in a similar way to FIIT, where the workout type is automatically determined for you and starts and ends automatically too.

Any workout you do on the Peloton companion app will appear on your profile and with any Bike, Bike+, Tread or Tread+ workouts you do, if you have Peloton equipment. The Peloton Digital app doesn't require Peloton equipment though, working as a standalone app like FIIT and Apple Fitness+.

    Difficulty connecting

    I have to turn my watch off or reinstall the app every time I use it. It is great when it works but this issue is causing me a lot of frustration.

    Update: the app is very unstable and has become unusable. I have to reboot my watch and phone every time I use it. I don’t know if this is an iPhone/watch issue or an issue with the app. And it won’t reliably connect to my peloton anymore. Sometimes it drops in and out; sometimes it takes a while to connect and sometimes it won’t connect at all. Again, it is great when it works because it saves me having to wear a heart chest monitor or otherwise seeking a work around for peloton. But, it has not been reliable and when it takes me 5 minutes or so to start the app and get it working it throws off my workout routine.

    Please get this app stable! It is so good when it works.

    This saves time & money and removes hassle.

    My stupid cardiologist wants me to track HR while exercising. Okay great. I have peloton bike (not + version) but only 2 years old. I HATE wearing a chest strap to track HR. The chest strap HRM that came with the bike was never a great solution anyway - often it just would not connect. I even tried another Peloton branded chest HRM and that failed to connect just as often. I tried a HRM (~$50) that is worn on forearm and it worked for a few months then died. And don’t forget how dumb I felt wearing a forearm HRM and having it sit right next to my seemingly ineffectual Apple Watch. I hated the fact that the Apple Watch is a great HRM but was unable to work with the bike, and therefore forced me into another piece of hardware.

    So I stumbled onto this app Thru a review on a random blog. (‘Champaign and coffee stains’). They detailed a process and usage that was simple and effective.

    It’s a great app. I would gladly pay $$ to put the apple watch to good use and not have to wear an annoying HRM.

    A superior and free way to connect your Apple Watch to Peloton

    One of the few frustrations of the Peloton platform is its inability to use your Apple Watch as a heart rate monitor. I’m not going to get into a discussion of whether Apple or Peloton is to blame for this, just note that it is a frustration looking for a solution. Here is your solution.

    HeartCast runs on your iPhone and Apple Watch simultaneously, taking your pulse from your watch, broadcasting it to your phone, which then rebroadcasts it in a way that Peloton recognizes as a true heart rate monitor. Genius. And guess what — the app is free.

    I tried to use another similar app, which is quite popular, and uses the “freemium” model. That is to say, the app forces you to watch a long commercial unless you upgrade it for a fee. I could never get it to work. From what I can tell, the length of the commercial may have caused the bike to disconnect from the Peloton before it could even get started. There are many posts online as to how to get around the problems with this other app. I suppose I could have paid to upgrade it and see if that solved my problems. But can you imagine the frustration if I had paid for the app and it still didn’t work. So instead I downloaded HeartCast. For free. And I never looked back. In fact, I’ve been so pleased that I made a voluntary donation to the developer.

    Save yourself some grief and check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

    Uwlaw94, thank you for this great review and for your donation. Your support is much appreciated. ♥️

    Monitor heart peloton watch apple

    As Peloton moves to compete with Apple Watch, details emerge for its upcoming heart rate armband

    Update: we’ve dug into the app and have a ton of screenshots of the armband UI

    Bloomberg released a piece today with new details on Peloton Interactive’s upcoming heart rate armband. With Peloton’s acquisitions of two wearable device companies (Atlas and Latitude 32), its recent release of the new Strive Score, and further limited connectivity the Apple Watch, a new Peloton heart rate wearable seems imminent. Here are the new details just discovered:

    The new details Bloomberg is reporting about the new Peloton heart rate monitor come from information found buried in the code of the digital iPhone and iPad app.

    Bloomberg writes:

    Details and images of the device indicate that it will come in small and large sizes and will pair wirelessly with Peloton’s bike and treadmills, along with phones, tablets and televisions running the company’s app.

    The heart-rate band will be able to capture the intensity of workouts, providing users more accurate data. The device will have a small screen that can display the battery level and when it’s in pairing mode, according to the code. After pairing the gadget with Peloton fitness equipment for the first time, the device will automatically do so via Bluetooth.

    In addition to this, there are also details on how Peloton’s new heart rate armband might work with Strive Score:

    The heart-rate band will receive software updates, according to the code, potentially letting the device add features down the road. The band will work with Peloton’s heart-rate zones, which provide users feedback on workouts of varying intensity.

    “Track the intensity of your workouts from Zone 1 (lowest effort) to Zone 5 (maximum capacity),” the code says. “Using the adjustable strap, wear the Peloton Heart Rate Monitor snug on your forearm to accurately monitor your effort during workouts.”

    The band, which includes an adjustable strap, will run on its own battery and automatically go into sleep mode when removed.

    The fact that this much detail is already in the code for the iPhone and iPad apps suggest that we might not be very far away from a release date. In the past, Peloton has released products at the end of summer, so be on the lookout for more details from Peloton regarding its new heart rate armband in the coming months.
