Samsung today announced that Galaxy Watch5 and Watch4 users can now download the Peloton Watch app on their smartwatches. Users can connect their smartwatches to a Peloton Bike, Bike+, Tread, Row and Guide and see their heart rate on the screen during workouts.
After a user selects a workout on their Peloton equipment and opens the Peloton Watch app on their Galaxy Watch, a prompt appears to pair the two devices. Users can tap the “connect” button during their workout to see their heart rate on the screen of their Peloton equipment or Wear OS platform. Samsung says this new integration will allow users to track their fitness goals in real time.
The Galaxy Watch integration comes a year after Peloton added Apple Watch integration to all of its machines.
“At Samsung, we believe that technology should help us live happier and healthier lives. That is a value we share with Peloton,” said Janet Lee, SVP Mobile Experience at Samsung Electronics America. “This partnership epitomizes our mutual commitment to providing consumers with a truly personalized fitness experience. These new capabilities give users a more detailed view of their progress, helping them achieve their fitness goals.”
Today’s announcement comes a few weeks after Samsung added temperature-based period tracking to its Galaxy Watch5 thanks to a new partnership with Natural Cycles that uses the smartwatch’s temperature sensors to provide better predictions.
