Peloton is abandoning Apple Watch’s Gymkit in favour of its own fitness app

Peloton announced in an email on Monday that it’ll be ditching support for Apple Watch’s GymKit from February 27: instead, it’ll be tracking your health and well-being metrics within its own Peloton app.

Peloton One-Tap tracking, as its replacement is called, doesn’t mean your Peloton workouts will need additional manual tracking to register in Apple Health. GymKit is the Apple Watch’s protocol allowing the Watch to connect directly to large gym equipment like exercise bikes and treadmills: instead, the device will connect via the Peloton app, and collect your workout data through the app.
