Step 1: Select a Peloton cycling class (GymKit works with live or pre-recorded classes).

Step 2:  For a live class: Don’t attempt to pair the Watch until the countdown clock is at 1 minute. If you do, the watch will time out. For an on-demand class: Select the class and click “Start” on the pop-up menu to enter the class.

Step 3: Place an unlocked Apple Watch to face to the left of the camera at the top of the touchscreen. The Watch will vibrate and an on-screen prompt will say ‘connecting’. You must tap on “OK” on the Watch to accept the connection to the Bike.

Step 4: Click “Start” on the workout. A small green symbol will appear at the top right of the touchscreen confirming the connection is active. Apple Watch will automatically disconnect from Peloton at the end of your ride.
