Life Fitness Enhances Connected Cardio Experience with Samsung Galaxy Watch Integration
ROSEMONT, Ill., [March 11, 2020]
Life Fitness today announced Samsung Galaxy Watch devices (Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Watch Active2) are now compatible with a full line of premium Life Fitness and Cybex cardio equipment via connectivity to Discover SE3 HD and Cybex R Series 70T consoles.
The latest smart watch integration allows users who have Samsung Galaxy Watch devices to seamlessly and accurately track workout data on a wide variety of compatible cardio equipment, including treadmills, ellipticals, Arc Trainers, PowerMill climbers, and recumbent and upright bikes.
“Wearable technology, including fitness trackers and smart watches, continues to be a top trend among exercisers around the world. By partnering with Samsung, we are providing better results to exercisers by integrating their workouts with the technology they use every day to help them reach their fitness goals,” said Anthony Radek, Product Director, Consoles and Software, at Life Fitness. “To further enhance our connected fitness offerings, Life Fitness continues to invest in meaningful digital partnerships that create new and personalized experiences for our customers and exercisers on our truly open API platform.”
Exercisers can simply tap their Galaxy Watch on the console of a Life Fitness or Cybex compatible cardio machine to sync their device. Once connected, the Galaxy Watch sends real-time heart rate data to the machine. After completing a workout, users receive a detailed workout summary on their watch including duration, heart rate and calories burned along with other workout metrics.
Dr. Kevin Shim, Corporate Vice President and Head of Samsung Health Strategy said, “At Samsung we are committed to bringing innovative experiences to our customers. With the integration of our Galaxy Watch devices with Life Fitness’ connected equipment, millions of exercisers around the world will now be able to work towards their fitness goals in a more efficient and effective manner through Samsung Health. We are very proud of this first collaboration with Life Fitness, and we are continuing to work together to bring more innovations to fitness enthusiasts around the world.”
