So! Some notes.

Decreases all around, but I knew that would happen in the summer. I barely used Peloton in August. I was active, it just outside, as the outdoor cycling” part of the Apple Watch report below shows off. It’s already freezing and it’s only early October now, so I’m assuming my Peloton usage will spike this month.

Peloton released an app for Roku just before the last report, and I’ve been using it exclusively. It’s very good. It does, however, mean that Peloton doesn’t give me heartrate output anymore, which is totally fine because Apple Watch does that better anyway. Which brings us to:

Apple Watch Data

So, when I start a video on my TV using the Roku app, I also tell my Apple Watch to start a corresponding workout. This means I’ve got personal data for all my peloton exercises. After using an Apple Watch for a few months, I really wish there was a way for me to download workout data to a spreadsheet, just like Peloton. I’ve tried a few apps but none give me the easy stuff.

I’ve actually stopped al lowing Peloton to add health data, since it ends up counting as 2 workouts and skewing results. Because of this, there’s no way for me to a) get accurate Apple Watch readings of heartrate and cals burned, and b) know which exercises are from Peloton and which are from other things. But, hey, I can guess.

Thankfully, iOS14 has an improved Activity app, so I can at least gather some data at a glance.

Here’s July:

Workout Type Total Cals Avg Calories
Strength Training 2204 157
Yoga 462 154
HIIT 446 148
Outdoor Cycling 3187 265
