With Apple Watch Connected the gym will cost you less money

Apple Watch Product RED

We could define the Apple Watch as one of Apple's most versatile devices. There are those who wear them as an exclusive accessory with the Hermés option. Others wear it as a sports watch and use the activity rings to motivate themselves, a function that will get better thanks to the Apple Watch Connected program. Some simply use it as a clock, keep an eye on their notifications and control the music they want to listen to.

If we focus on the sports function, I have to say that for users who want a basic-medium control, it can be more than enough, especially considering Nike model. But it is also now with the Apple Watch Connected program, watch users who attend certain gyms will be able to obtain financial benefits.

Apple Watch Connected. An alliance with gyms for the benefit of users

In certain gyms (currently in the US) that join the Apple Watch Connected program, users who use this wareable may, provided they achieve the challenges created, get monetary discounts on the monthly cost of the gym payment.

For this to work, the gym must enroll in the program, free of charge, offer Apple Pay as a means of payment and have iPhone and Watch applications available to customers that allow you to track your statistics, see what classes they offer and log in to the gym.

In this way, all users who have an Apple Watch and use it continuously in the gym They can get up to $ 4 off their monthly gym payment. It may not be a lot of money at first glance, but it certainly is a good motivation. You go to the gym, you get in shape and you get paid for it.

At the moment 4 are the gym chains that have signed up for the Apple Watch Connected. Orangetheory, Basecamp Fitness, YMCA and Crunch Fitness. For example at Orangetheory, you can also win gift cards for Apple and Nike.

If all goes well, it will surely spread to other gyms and hopefully it won't take too long to arrive in Spain. Every day more users are seen with the Apple Watch to measure their physical performance and take advantage of the electrocardiogram function to be aware of possible medical problems.
