Apple announces the cool gymkit feature for apple watch. In an announcement made earlier this month, Apple is now going to make its users talk with the gym equipment. This feature will let the users exchange data between apple watch and the gym equipment like Treadmill, bikes, stair steppers etc. This will be an added feature for the Apple watch users. If you are new to apple watch then here are some of the features that you may know.
Apple Gymkit features:
Apple watch calculates the active exercise done by its user, calculate steps, monitors the health of your cardiac. Apart from these it will connect with a treadmill and other equipment with the help of NFC and calculate your workout. Apple figured out that a lot of user’s most active moments were in the gym. That’s why they roll out the gym kit feature in the Apple watch. After knowing these features you might want to know how it works. Let’s know about it.
How do the Apple Gymkit feature work:
Each gym equipment which is NFC compatible will be assigned a tag. You have to tap your watch when you step on an equipment. This will make the two devices connect and share information among them. You will get a vibration alert once after successful connection. Now you can start the workout and the watch will calculate the data of your active exercise. Suppose if you are on a treadmill it will know your height, weight, age and how fast you are running on. Both the watch and the treadmill will store data for that session only and once you step out the entire data will be wiped off. This will ensure the data privacy along with accuracy.
