Apple Watch-using fitness fanatics in Toronto can now sync workout information between their Watch and compatible workout equipment in the Equinox’s Yorkville health club location in Toronto. The location is the first in Canada to offer Apple GymKit-enabled machines.
From the press release:
The technology lets exercisers tap their Apple Watch to compatible Life Fitness cardio machines, including ellipticals, treadmills, step mills and stationary bikes, for seamless and accurate data tracking, including calories burned and heart rate. Data from the machine and Apple Watch are synced in real-time during the workout and then stored in the Apple Health app.
The launch continues Life Fitness’ global rollout of the technology after previous introductions in the United States, Hong Kong and Japan.
The company showed off the technology at recent fitness-related events in San Diego, CA and Cologne, Germany, alongside the company’s newly unveiled Halo Fitness Cloud, which Life Fitness describes as a revolutionary software offering that enhances the exerciser experience and simplifies fitness facility management.
