Fitness First Australia has become the first operator in the world to introduce cardio equipment to its gym floor that pairs wirelessly with Apple Gymkit technology.

Members with an Apple Watch will be able to pair it with TechnoGym treadmills, ellipticals, indoor bikes and stair steppers.

Once connected, the watch and equipment exchange data without the need to download additional apps, press extra buttons or navigate menus.

The first clubs to introduce the GymKit-enabled equipment are Bond Street, Bondi Junction and Barangaroo in Sydney, and Richmond in Melbourne.

“We’re constantly thinking of ways to give our members a premium fitness experience and value from their membership,” said Greg Oliver, chief executive of Fitness and Lifestyle Group, parent company of Fitness First Australia.

“Introducing Apple’s GymKit-enabled cardio equipment reflects our commitment to providing our members with the latest innovations, facilities and equipment in our Fitness First clubs.”

As reported in June, Apple unveiled the GymKit feature so users could wirelessly sync their devices with cardio gym equipment.

“We wanted to simplify the cardio machine experience and make it more accurate than ever before," said Jay Blahnik, senior director of fitness for health technologies at Apple.

"With a quick tap on your favourite cardio equipment, you’ll see for the first time, two-way data exchange in real time that will result in the most accurate measurements possible with less device management."
