Peloton’s first piece of strength hardware, the Peloton Guide, is set to release on Tuesday, April 5. However, since its announcement last year, surprisingly few details about the Peloton Guide have been revealed. With less than a day until release, more details about this mysterious device are finally rolling in.

What is the Peloton Guide?
The Peloton Guide is a 12-megapixel 4K camera that can track your movements and allow you see yourself on a screen next to the instructor. According to a recent report from Wired, it currently only supports strength classes but will support other class types like yoga in the future.
The camera will be able to count and track your reps for each movement. The Guide will then use this data to give class recommendations that could help balance the time you spend on each muscle group.
Which classes will be available?
While all strength classes will be available on the Peloton Guide, it may not be able to track reps and movements from previous classes.
It is uncertain at this time if other class types, like yoga and Pilates or bootcamps, can be taken with the Guide.
How much will the Peloton Guide cost?
The Peloton Guide will cost $295 for the basic package. Other packages, which may include a Peloton heart rate band or dumbbells, have not yet been announced.
For digital Peloton app members, the cost to use the Peloton Guide will be increased to $24 per month. For members already with a Peloton Bike or Tread subscription, there will be no increase in subscription cost.
Is it worth it?
There is still a lot that we do not know about the Peloton Guide, such as how well it tracks reps and if it is actually a useful piece of hardware. We are currently working on a full in-depth review, so make sure to follow us on Instagram to stay updated.
