Apple has today announced that its fitness subcription service, Apple Fitness+, is set to launch on Monday, December 14.

Apple Fitness+ syncs information from your Apple Watch with the workout video on an ‌Apple TV‌, ‌iPad‌, or iPhone. This allows users to see their heart rate, calories burned, and activity rings as they follow the moves from the instructors on screen.

Fitness+ includes workouts for yoga, cycling, dance, strength, core, HIIT, rowing, and more. Apple noted that many of the workouts do not need any equipment, and at most just require a set of dumbbells.

The service will be refreshed with new workouts every week. Users will also be able to choose custom music while exercising, with options that sync with Apple Music.

Fitness+ will be located in the Fitness app on iOS, and there will be a new app for the ‌Apple TV‌. The service costs $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year. Apple is offering three free months of Apple Fitness+ with new Apple Watch purchases. It is also part of the Apple One Premier bundle for $29.99.

Apple Fitness+ will launch in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Ireland, and New Zealand on Monday, December 14.

So to use it with a TV you need an Apple TV box or a smart TV that supports Airplay 2?

I'm assuming I need to setup a different user on my apple TV for my wife to be able to use this.

All I want is first person video that moves at the rate I ride, run, or row.

Nothing about multi-user support for group workouts, so I’m assuming that won’t be there at launch.

Also mentions weekly updates but nothing beyond that about how much content is actually there. If I want to do two or three of a specific workout type and difficulty per week, I hope there’s enough so I’m seeing something new every time.

I've thought about this for a few years. A VR headset with google street view. Map out a route ahead of time. I don't even care if it moves at my speed. Let me set a preset speed, say 15 MPH for cycling, and let me ride that route in VR. It would be amazing.

Currently have the peloton app which is great with my stationary bike. Curious if fitness+ will support Bluetooth cadence sensor like the peloton app

Can’t you use your phone also?
I won’t use this unless I can use it on my 50” TV. I have an Apple TV box. Hopefully more smart TVs will adopt airplay. I wonder if Apple could make an app for Roku similar to the TV app or if it requires an Apple chip to work.

Why is it so hard to find a fitness app with a great Outdoor Run Program?

Peloton rarely releases some and Fitness+ doesn't even mention them?

Well, I guess I will order an Apple Watch Series 6 now, I have been on Series 2 since they were introduced but Apple in their infinite wisdom and Capitalist Ambition made it such that Fitness+ require an Apple Watch Series 3 or better.

damn!
