- It's easy to set up!
Peloton has added heart rate monitoring for Apple Watch. Users can start a workout and, with one tap, start tracking with their watch. The integration works with the Bike, Bike+, Tread, or on the Peloton app.
Either: Your band is not tight enough and the Apple Watch cannot read your heart rate. Your permissions are incorrect and Peloton cannot access your heart rate.
This means you can now use your Apple Watch as a heart rate monitor for the any Peloton device: including the original Peloton Bike, the Peloton Tread, the Peloton Tread+, as well as the Peloton Bike+ – plus the Peloton iOS app. The Apple Watch will now work as a heart rate monitor for all class types.
With the Peloton App, you can connect a Bluetooth®-enabled Heart Rate Monitor to the app to see your real-time heart rate in every class. Tracking your heart rate during a workout is one of the best ways to see how hard you're working and help track your progress over time.
Is The Peloton Heart Rate Band Worth It? No. It offers less connectivity and battery life than chest straps that cost half its price and are more accurate, including Peloton's own chest strap. Even if you would prefer an armband, the Polar Verity Sense is a better all-round product that costs less.
It works with more than 50 smartphone fitness apps and tracks multiple workout metrics, including your heart rate and the number of calories you've burned. It's also equipped with both Bluetooth and ANT+ connectivity and has a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 30 hours.
The Peloton band was good for accuracy on my forearm or biceps when compared with the readings from a Garmin HRM-Pro chest strap, and the lights on the top make it easy to see what heart rate zone you're in – though this info is even easier to see on screen if using it with the Tread or Peloton Bike.
Similar to many Fitbit devices, the Apple Watch, and other wrist-based fitness trackers, the Peloton Heart Rate Band uses optical technology to read your heart rate. Without getting too technical, optical sensors calculate your heart rate by shining light into your skin and measuring blood flow.
Optical Accuracy They're not as comfortable to wear, but tend to be slightly more accurate because they're worn closer to the heart and measure its activity directly. In testing, the Peloton Heart Rate Band offered similar readings to an Apple Watch Series 7, as well as to a Myzone Mz-Switch chest strap.

Helpful answers. It is not possible to configure Apple Watch to monitor your heart rate continuously. Heart rate can also be checked at any time via the Heart Rate app, which also offers a complication that can be added to supported watch faces: Check your heart rate.
In short, the Apple Watch's heart rate monitor is accurate enough for the majority of consumers, particularly for fitness goals. On the medical side, there are still concerns about the data.
