Peloton is opening its app to third-party treadmills for running, walking or Tread Bootcamp classes. Pelo Buddy spotted a new support page on Peloton’s site, announcing that the app can now record and display metrics on any treadmill that uses Bluetooth FTMS. The offer is only open to customers of Peloton App Plus, the company’s most expensive subscription workout plan.
To pair, you’ll start a trade class in the Peloton app, then tap the “Connect Bluetooth device” option. Select your treadmill from the list, and a green check mark will tell you when it’s connected.
Peloton says users can check their incline, speed, pace, and distance through the app during a class session. After the class is over, the app will also show estimated calories burned and height gain. Additionally, sessions on third-party treadmills will still count toward challenges and badges.
