An exercise bike that's thoroughly connected: Peloton

Boot Camp feature for Monday, May 4, 2015

An exercise bike that’s thoroughly connected.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    The folks at Peloton are out with a bike equipped with a big screen tablet…designed to bring live exercise classes into your home….wherever you are.   The classes are streamed from Manhattan and are also available on demand.   Peloton’s Craig Motz….

“So not only can they take the classes at home, have the bike at home, but they can compete with each other as well.   So we have a leader board here.   A little friendly competition between your friends and family.   And not only with the people at home, but people that are in the class.”

The bike with the 21 and a half inch HD touch screen is priced at about two thousand dollars.   It connects via WiFi.   Everyone in the household then can participate in classes for a forty dollar a month subscription.   An interesting alternative to your typical gym membership.   There’s more info at PelotonCycle.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
