    Hi guys -

    Wondering if you guys have tried cycling with an iPhone 6?

    I was hoping that the M8 chip would be able to track my cycles? - While it works with steps-taken and distance covered, it doesn't seem to erecognise I've been riding my bike.

    Here's how it looks on my ip6 after my cycle today...

    Is it broken? Is my phone broken?

    Let me know if you guys have had this issue also.

    Cheers!:D

    Was it actually suppose to track cycling? I just use strava and it adds the data points into the health app.

    You need a cycle app to act as a source. It doesn't magically know you're cycling!

    M7/8 only tracks Steps and Walking/Running Distance using the accelerometer.
