“Given that Apple Watch is an incredibly popular tool for connected
fitness, we are thrilled to offer Apple GymKit integration so exercisers
can seamlessly connect, track and share their Octane Fitness workout
data,” said Ryan Simat, General Manager and Vice President, Commercial
and Specialty, at Nautilus, Inc. “Compatibility with Apple GymKit is yet
another demonstration of our relentless commitment to fuel lives.”
With this integration, Apple Watch users can pair with Octane’s
LateralX, XT-One or XT3700 any time before or during a workout simply by
bringing it close to the “Connect Watch Here” badge on the console. The
watch then sends specific calorie and heart rate measurements to the
machine, and the equipment forwards additional metrics, like level,
distance, workout duration and more to the smartwatch – ultimately
delivering the most accurate statistics.
At the end of a workout, data from the equipment appears in the workout
summary in the Activity app on the Apple Watch and iPhone. By exchanging
this comprehensive data, all workout details are conveniently stored in
one place on the app on the Apple Watch, making it simple for users to
record and track progress. No data is stored on the Octane machine.
