Easier to Connect
The number of taps required to connect to compatable cardio and strength equipment has been reduced.
When in a workout, you can now choose to 'Connect' with a single tap to bring up the QR scanner and connect to compatible equipment for an adhoc exercise.
Alternatively, tap the PLUS button to add an exercise straight from the library.
Connecting and recording planned Exercises
The options within the exercise screen have also been improved. When in a free workout or a planned workout you can now:
- use the "Connect" button to utilise QR Code scanning, NFC scanning, or remind yourself of RFID compatability, or,
- choose to manually record the exercise using the 'Tick' button.
Remember, when in a planned workout and looking at the planned exercise, connecting to compatible Cardio equipment via QR Code and NFC will also sync your exercise with the console, allowing you to perform your pre-planned exercise with no intervention.
Simply hit "Connect" in the app from within the relevant exercise, scan the QR or NFC reader, and you'll be connected to the cario equipment. Then just hit START in the top right corner of the cardio console to get going!
Swipe through the Connection methods
The UI has been refreshed to improve the method of connecting to compatible equipment. When you select the new "Connect" button, you'll now be presented with all available connection methods in one modal. Swiping left/right will navigate through the different methods, and always starts on the QR Scanner.
For users on compatible Android devices, NFC will also be available as the second connection method.
Note: RFID technology is dependant upon the gym providing you with an RFID band or card and cannot be activated from the mobile phone itself.
