VANCOUVER, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE: NLS), a leader in innovative fitness equipment, announced that Octane Fitness is now a GymKit™ enabled partner for the Apple® Watch wrist wearable device. Select Octane commercial machines, including the LateralX lateral elliptical, XT-One cross trainer and XT3700 elliptical, now are compatible with Apple GymKit technology, thereby enabling Apple Watch owners to wirelessly sync workout data.
“Given that Apple Watch is an incredibly popular tool for connected fitness, we are thrilled to offer Apple GymKit integration so exercisers can seamlessly connect, track and share their Octane Fitness workout data,” said Ryan Simat, General Manager and Vice President, Commercial and Specialty, at Nautilus, Inc. “Compatibility with Apple GymKit is yet another demonstration of our relentless commitment to fuel lives.”
With this integration, Apple Watch users can pair with Octane’s LateralX, XT-One or XT3700 any time before or during a workout simply by bringing it close to the “Connect Watch Here” badge on the console. The watch then sends specific calorie and heart rate measurements to the machine, and the equipment forwards additional metrics, like level, distance, workout duration and more to the smartwatch – ultimately delivering the most accurate statistics.
At the end of a workout, data from the equipment appears in the workout summary in the Activity app on the Apple Watch and iPhone. By exchanging this comprehensive data, all workout details are conveniently stored in one place on the app on the Apple Watch, making it simple for users to record and track progress. No data is stored on the Octane machine.
