Peloton is having some major trouble this week, with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission issuing a warning for those with the Peloton Tread+, asking those who have children or pets to stop using it and suggesting Peloton begin a recall of the product entirely.

[Updated with a statement from Peloton] Peloton cuts back on Apple Watch support

Official statement from Peloton:

“Apple GymKit is designed to work with equipment-based cardio workouts.
