The Apple GymKit was recently introduced to Australia, making it possible for smartwatch wearers to instantly sync their workout data between their device and workout equipment.
With a tap of their smartwatch, Apple Watch users are now able to connect to various pieces of GymKit equipment and use NFC to automatically send and collect data. On a connected treadmill, a user is able to receive heart rate data, as well as calories burned during a workout session to create a precise weight calculation. As well as relaying biometric data, the Apple GymKit also takes note of inclines and pauses that are used during a workout.
Following a workout, the Apple Watch saves all relevant information without the use of an iPhone, while the pieces of cardio equipment are wiped free of personal data.
