Fandroids Rejoice: First Android Compatible Fitness Equipment Now Available
October 12, 2012 / Category: Innovation
At Life Fitness, we’re always looking to improve our products to fit what exercisers want and expect out of their workout experience. With the launch of our latest Discover tablet consoles, Android users will no longer be left out. Elevation Series Discover SE and Discover SI Treadmills, Cross-Trainers, and Lifecycle Exercise Bikes will now have a mini-USB connector for Android and Blackberry compatibility. We were the first to bring Apple connectivity to the market and we will now offer those great features to Android users.
Plugging into your fitness equipment means you can access your personal music, videos and books all from the 19-inch console with Swipe technology. In the future, you will also be able to download the LFconnect app, which will automatically track your workout results and store them on the LFconnect cloud. You can even create custom workouts on the site and have them ready to access from your phone when you get to the gym. Watch our blog for the official app launch later this year. Features may vary by Android model.
