What devices are compatible with Peloton app?

Peloton has long been one of the most popular fitness apps, owing primarily to its extensive range of high-quality classes and programs. Even without syncing to Peloton’s range of equipment, the app has a number of unique functionalities that have helped it quickly establish itself as one of the leading workout apps on the market.

In this article, we’ll look in more detail at what the Peloton app can offer and explore the range of compatible devices that can be used to take your fitness routine to the next level.

What is the Peloton app?

We’re all familiar with the Peloton bike and treadmill, but few know that Peloton also offers a standalone app.

The Peloton app contains thousands of classes in a range of different styles, from running and strength training to yoga and meditation.

The peloton app also syncs up perfectly with your peloton bike or tread, giving you full access to key health and fitness metrics from your workouts.

The app comes included with some Peloton products, but can be bought separately for $12.99 a month following a 30 day free trial.

The Peloton app is also collaborative, allowing you to compare progress, tackle exciting challenges and unlock achievements. It even comes with a ‘share link’ option, allowing you to complete workouts with friends.

Devices compatible with Peloton

The Peloton app is becoming increasingly versatile in its options, and now functions seamlessly on hundreds of different phones, tablets, televisions and smartwatches. Let’s look at some of the different ways you can work out using your Peloton membership.

Phone/Tablet

At times, completing a workout at home on your Peloton device simply isn’t an option. That’s why the Peloton app for mobile gives you the option to track and complete classes on the go. Access 1000s of classes anytime, anywhere, at the touch of a button. Guided audio sessions make it easy to go for long guided jogs.. The app simply uses GPS to track distance, elevation and calories burned.

The Peloton App for tablet is the easiest way to fit in a quick exercise session at a moment’s notice. The bigger screen is ideal for a stretching session in the park or a quick workout in a hotel room.

Your phone or tablet can even link up with a Bluetooth heart rate monitor. The Peloton app will display your heart rate, letting you track your progress and see how hard you’re working.

The app is compatible with both iOS and Android, so can be used by any smartphone user who wants to get the most out of their Peloton experience.

TV

Users looking for a collaborative, immersive experience should take full advantage of the Peloton app’s TV compatibility.

This is the ideal option for fitness fanatics who routinely work out from home, or who want to exercise with friends and family.

Several different Smart TVs can download the app directly. Compatible models include:

Even those without a compatible TV model can use Apple Airplay to broadcast their workout from their iOS device or a Chromecast to broadcast straight from the Android Peloton app.

Peloton for Apple watch

Peloton has long supported Apple, with the Apple watch gaining access to the Peloton app earlier than any other smartwatches.

Peloton is the biggest competitor to Apple’s own workout app, Apple Fitness+. With that said, it may be surprising to you that Peloton works with full functionality on the Apple Watch.

With a single tap, it’s easy to monitor your strive score, heart rate and workout progress. The watch links up to your phone, so any workout you complete is synced automatically between both devices.

The Apple Watch for Peloton functions seamlessly and is an excellent option for runners and cyclists who want access to their fitness metrics on the go.

Unfortunately, the Peloton app for wear OS can’t link to a peloton bike or tread in the same way it can to an Apple watch. The watch collects the expected health metrics and displays vital signs data but falls short in other areas. To track an exercise on their watch, users must first start the workout on a paired smartphone.

While the app currently has limited functionality, it is one to watch for the future.

The Peloton app can be downloaded from the Google play store using any wear OS watch with the OS 3 update.

Web

While not recommended, the Peloton app can also be used on the web. As Peloton designed the app for mobile devices, it is not as intuitive when accessed on a computer.

That said, users who don’t mind missing out on some core functionalities can use the web to complete quick workouts. If you’re looking to squeeze in a rapid stretching, meditation, or yoga session while you sit at your desk, the Peloton web portal is the perfect way to do so.
