On Thursday, CNBC reported that fitness unicorn Peloton was in dire straits. The company saw its value plummet on the news that they were “temporarily halting production of its connected fitness products as consumer demand wanes.” As the pandemic starts to move to the back of many minds, there’s been a significant drop in the number of people looking to buy expensive home workout equipment. Because of this, the idea of Apple purchasing Peloton has come back up. It has lingered for awhile, but now the idea is gaining more traction in the press. I think everyone needs to cool their jets.

How to use Apple Fitness+: Apple Watch requirement, sign up, start workouts, more
Apple Fitness+ is now available to Apple Watch users with 180 workouts across 10 different categories. While the service is available across iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV, there are some differences between getting going depending on which device you’re using. Let’s dig into a detailed look at how to use Apple Fitness+.
By the time you are reading this, Apple Fitness+ will have probably launched. It’s not Apple’s first foray into social fitness but it is a giant opportunity for them to expand the Apple Watch’s user base. Apple Watch is the best selling watch in the world, but there are still tons of people who either want to wear a traditional watch or don’t want to spend the money on a new Apple Watch. The latter tend to purchase Fitbits or other popular fitness bands that still have basic smartwatch features and track their fitness.
Fitness+ is here and we’ve been digging into the new service and discovering more specifics. Follow along for a look at some interesting Apple Fitness Plus details like how the Apple Watch requirement works, screenshots being blocked, what sharing looks like, a deal with Unitedhealthcare and Life Time fitness clubs, and more.
Apple Fitness+ is now available to iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Apple Watch users, but the rollout hasn’t gone smoothly for some users. Specifically, it appears that many iPad users are currently unable to install the Apple Fitness app on their device.
Update: Apple has resolved this issue for most years.
Apple Fitness+ has officially launched with iOS 14.3 and watchOS 7.2. While you can do many of the workouts without needing any gear, there are some workout types that you’ll need weights, a bike, rower, and more. Now Apple’s landing page for a curated collection of workout equipment has gone live.
