TrainingPeaks Now Syncs With Apple Watch®
April 13, 2020
Apple Watch users can now directly sync their workouts automatically to TrainingPeaks without a third-party app.
Boulder, Colo., April 13, 2020— TrainingPeaks, a global leader in providing smart and effective digital training solutions for athletes and coaches, today announced a new integration with Apple® that allows athletes to sync workouts directly from their Apple Watch to TrainingPeaks.
For Apple Health users, this upgrade replaces the need for a third-party-app, delivering workout data directly from their Apple Watch Workout app to TrainingPeaks. After a one-time sync, every completed workout will automatically appear on their TrainingPeaks calendar.
“Smartwatches have been growing in popularity with athletes as more and more people use these devices to record their training,” said Dirk Friel, TrainingPeaks co-founder and Chief Evangelist. “This new integration taps into that trend by making it easy for athletes to just hit record on their watch, focus on their workout and have that data automatically upload to TrainingPeaks once they’re done.”
For now, only workouts recorded after you connect your Apple Health and TrainingPeaks accounts will appear on your TrainingPeaks calendar. This is to avoid creating duplicate workouts that may already exist in your Health app. A full historical sync will be available in a future version of this integration.
