VANCOUVER, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--February 25, 2015: Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE: NLS), a leader in innovative home fitness equipment, announced today its Bowflex Max Trainer® will support Google Fit.
Google Fit is an open health-tracking platform designed for Android™, which collects and stores fitness data from different devices and apps in one location to provide users with a comprehensive view of their fitness activities. Now users can seamlessly sync their Bowflex Max Trainer® workouts with the Google Fit app and see how many calories they’ve burned, their heart rate, workout level, and time.
Compatibility with Google Fit follows closely on the heels of the company’s integration with Apple HealthKit, and is part of Nautilus, Inc.’s ongoing digital strategy to integrate with health and fitness platforms – including apps like MyFitnessPal – across all of its Bluetooth® Smart-enabled fitness equipment. This also reinforces the company’s commitment to innovation and the importance of providing users with their health data.
“Through its support of Google Fit, Nautilus, Inc. continues to lead the fitness equipment category by integrating with the latest offerings that give consumers the information they need to make decisions about their health,” said Rob Murdock, Vice President/General Manager of Nautilus, Inc. “Research shows that digital connectivity, and the ability to track progress, play a critical role in keeping people motivated and engaged.”

Bowflex Max Trainer®: Representing Award-winning Innovation
The revolutionary Bowflex Max Trainer® is designed to burn up to two-and-a-half times the calories of other exercise equipment, including treadmills, steppers and ellipticals. It features a 14-minute interval workout that maximizes the benefits of afterburn and can increase metabolism up to 48 hours after a workout is completed.
The Bowflex Max Trainer® also provides users the ability to track their workouts with the free Bowflex Max Trainer® app that wirelessly transfers all workout data via Bluetooth® Smart technology. It tracks every detail — from time on the machine to calories burned — and automatically syncs workout data with Apple Health and Google Fit apps, as well as MyFitnessPal®. The app syncs data automatically with Bowflex Connect™, a free online dashboard that helps users view their workout results and understand how these results contribute to achieving their overall fitness goal.
