Why Apple Watch Heart Rate Is Not Showing on Peloton and What To Do

For those that use both a Peloton and an Apple Watch, an update within Apple Watch was preventing users from viewing their heart rate on a Peloton device while performing a workout. To make things slightly more frustrating, users were still able to connect their Watch to the Peloton, but they were unable to access important heart rate information.

While some users were having luck deleting the Peloton app from their Watch and iPhone and then resetting all of their devices, there is, fortunately, no need to do any of this. Peloton was aware of the situation and has released a software update to correct the problem. Now, all you need to do to get your Apple Watch heart rate to show up on your Peloton is to ensure that the device is up to date.
