Fitness Equipment

Many new treadmills and exercise bikes are manufactured with a web-enabled tablet computer, enabling the user to browse the internet or stream television shows while they exercise. Peloton Cycle, for example, produces a stationary bike with a camera that allows users to communicate with fitness instructors using an interface similar to a Skype or FaceTime. This exercise machine includes 16 GB internal flash storage which stores activity information, such as the classes taken, distance ridden, and other element of a user’s Peloton Cycle profile. In addition, certain exercise apps, such as BitGym, use the camera on a tablet or smart phone to track how fast a user is running and provides a video of interactive trails.
