During Apple’s fall event, the company announced Fitness+, a new subscription service with deep integration with Apple Watch that became available on December 14th, 2020.
Apple Fitness+ was unveiled at Apple’s September Apple Watch event, but a specific arrival date wasn’t shared. It’s now been announced that the personalized fitness service based around Apple Watch will be available on December 14. If you’re looking to add in a new workout routine for 2021, you might be asking which service is best: Apple Fitness+ vs. Peloton?
After Apple announced Fitness+, it became the talk of the connected fitness community with comparisons to Peloton. I argued that it only competes with Peloton Digital, but with a Fitness+Kit API, Apple could become a Peloton competitor.
At Apple’s new product event, Apple unveiled its new Apple Fitness+ service that is tightly integrated with Apple Watch.
GymKit has been around for a couple of years at this point, but we rarely hear anything about it. Occasionally there will be a news story about a hotel chain adding a few thousand compatible treadmills, but that’s about it.
