Life Fitness integrates cardio equipment with Samsung smart watch technology 
March 18, 2020

Life Fitness Australia has announced that Samsung Galaxy Watch devices (Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Watch Active2) are now compatible with a full line of premium Life Fitness cardio equipment via connectivity to the Discover SE3 HD console.

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 Life Fitness treadmills, ellipticals, Arc Trainers, PowerMill climbers, and recumbent and upright bikes.

Life Fitness Product Director Consoles and Software, Anthony Radek advises "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.

"To further enhance our connecte fitness offerings, Life Fitness continues to invest in meaningful digital partnerships that create new and personalised 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 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 capturing duration, heart rate and calories burned.

Samsung Health Strategy Corporate Vice President and Head, Dr Kevin Shim added "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."
