Probably! See the tracking video (also embedded above) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxzPTP5UPB8
However one common issue is that your iPad cannot attach to your machine, or sometimes it can only be fit portrait mode, not landscape mode. See this article on our support site with a few solutions you can try: http://bitgym.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/42778
We think so! It picks up real fast, it updates over twenty times a second, and it’s even capable of picking up millimeter scale exercise motions of extremely stable bikers. We should note we don’t know everything about your exercise motion - we just know your exercise cadence and step count. For example, we don’t know your resistance level or your treadmill belt speed. Still, cadence tracking gives you a powerful sense of connection with the interactive content. Also we can automatically track how long you were exercising so you can save or upload it to your favorite digital exercise journal (this feature is coming after public release).
We were worried about this at first, but it turns out modern phones and tablets have extra microphones to subtract out background noise, and they are excellent at filtering out droning cardio machine noise.
Compared to free abdominal workout apps, maybe. If you’re comparing it to the cost of spin classes, it’s a steal. It’s expensive to create high quality content and it’s expensive to distribute HD streams of it. What the membership fee does it make sure the service never goes stale, that there will be a stream of new things to do every single workout, and that collectively a lot more people can look forward to their workouts. And finally, founding members will get the best rates of anyone in the service ;)
Let’s talk, email email@example.com - our vision is to create a system where users can “vote with their feet” on the kind of content they want to work out to. We give a generous cut of the subscription fees to these providers in proportion to how many people work out to their content. This creates a good incentive - if you produce content which helps people exercise, you get paid more. In the end, BitGym will be molded by the actions and tastes of it’s users. We’re excited to see where it takes us.
HDMI out will work great on both iOS and Android. You'll have the screen perfectly mirrored to the larger TV, while all the exercise tracking is still done on your phone or tablet.
AirPlay will work OK for iOS platforms. On the plus side the AppleTV unit can instantly stream our HD streams and play it full screen - it looks amazing. The downside is that we do not have the ability to do analog speed control, so the tour will either play at normal speed or be paused. Furthermore we cannot composite on trail facts over the video - they must be viewed on the Phone or iPad itself.
Chromecast should solve a lot of the problems with AirPlay. It certainly will be able to stream the tours from the internet in HD, and will also probably be able to give us analog speed control over the playback. We're actively experimenting with our chromecast unit and will report more details when we have them.
