April 4, 2023 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced beginning today, April 4, Galaxy Watch5 and Watch4 series smartwatches will begin to roll out the Peloton Watch App1 in the U.S. Users will be able to connect to Peloton Bike, Bike+, Tread, Row and Guide, through the app providing users the ability to see their heart rate2 on screen during a workout. The Peloton Watch App empowers users with more control and visibility over their home workouts.
“At Samsung, we believe technology should help us lead happier and healthier lives. That’s a value we share with Peloton,” said Janet Lee, SVP of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics America. “This partnership embodies our mutual commitment to providing a truly personalized fitness experience for consumers. These new capabilities give users a more detailed picture of their progress, helping them achieve their fitness goals.”
After a user selects a workout on their chosen Peloton equipment and opens the Peloton Watch App on their Galaxy Watch, a prompt will appear to pair the two devices. Users can simply tap the “connect” button to see their heart rate displayed on their Peloton equipment screen or Wear OS platform during their workout. This lets users track their fitness goals in real time, to help keep themselves accountable and reach their health goals.
“As a Member-first company, we are constantly innovating to create the best possible experience for our users; no detail is too small,” said Viresh Rustagi, SVP of Software Development at Peloton. “Working in partnership with Samsung, we are thrilled to equip our Member community with even more options to routinely and easily track their Peloton performance as part of their fitness regimen.”
The Peloton Watch App3 is available on all Galaxy Watch models using Wear OS 3 including the Watch5 and Watch4 series.
