iFit Connected Fitness Adds Bluetooth® Headphone Connectivity on NordicTrack, ProForm and Freemotion Equipment
November 30, 2020
(LOGAN, Utah, December 1, 2020) — iFit, the patented, interactive, connected fitness platform, adds Bluetooth® headphone connectivity on all iFit-enabled equipment, such as NordicTrack, ProForm and Freemotion treadmills, cycles, elliptical and rowers. All brands of Bluetooth headphones are compatible. With this feature, iFit members using the embedded tablet on their equipment will experience an added element of convenience and customization.
“The option to connect via Bluetooth enables members to fully immerse themselves in the iFit workouts, eliminating outside distractions,” Mark Watterson, President of iFit said. “More so, it allows members who share space with family or friends to be considerate of the noise levels in the room.”
How it works:
Connecting headphones to equipment is a simple, four-part process:
- Select a workout from the iFit Library on the iFit-enabled equipment.
- Tap “Start workout.”
- Tap the “Connect to headphones” button on either the warm-up screen, the pause screen, next to the volume slider, or on the cool-down screen.
- Select the model of headphones from the on-screen list, making sure the headphones are on and in pairing mode.
The Bluetooth compatibility update has been pushed to all iFit-enabled machines if the machine is set to automatically update. For iFit members who opted into manual updates, they will simply need to ensure they have the latest version of iFit in order to use the Bluetooth feature.
