Ditch the Strap!
BlueHeart is the first app that lets you bridge the divide between your Apple Watch and your gym equipment like Peloton, Mirror, LifeFitness, Precor, Wahoo, Garmin, TrainerRoad, and more! By using Apple Health to record your workouts you can close your rings and have your heart rate data show up in your Peloton/Mirror dashboard or in front of you on your treadmill or rowing machine.
Works with all Bluetooth Heart Rate devices!
We follow the Bluetooth SIG spec for a heart rate monitor so BlueHeart lets you use your watch and phone as a Bluetooth heart monitor that shows up exactly as a chest strap would. If you can turn your watch and phone into a universal Bluetooth heart rate monitor, so why spend the extra money to buy one or waste the time putting one on when your watch is already on your wrist and BlueHeart is a tap away?
BlueHeart is built from the ground up to be privacy-focused. BlueHeart is GDPR, CCPA, and Apple No-Tracking complaint.We use the app every day. We care about our privacy as much as you do, so your data is your data. We don't want it and we upload no identifiable data to our servers. We also use best in class ad partners that are also GDPR, CCPA, and Apple No-Tracking complaint.
Close Your Rings!
Save to Apple Health and close your rings just like the native workout app.
We get it. We like to close them too. So get the best of both worlds by having your watch calculate your calories using Apple's advanced algorithms and broadcast your heart rate over BLE.

Ratings and Reviews
Update: The connection problem is getting better, but even when I’ve selected the “don’t save” option, it’s still double-counting the workout on Health (both my Peloton and app workout minutes are recording as Active Energy). Oddly enough, it doesn’t show a second workout—it just double-counts the time and calories. I have to manually go through and delete all of the iPhone and Apple Watch “workout minutes” on the Health app to have the right number of minutes and calories burned showing. Because of that, I’ve stopped using it again—too much work. Note: This does not happen when I use the Peloton chest heart rate monitor and have the Apple Watch on.
Worked really well during the first few minutes of my first Peloton with this, but I had to stop the workout to respond to an issue at home. When I tried to restart my ride, it wouldn’t connect. I tried going to another ride, and same thing. I tried turning off Bluetooth on the bike and on my phone and even force closing the app, and nothing. I also did a hard shutdown on the Peloton bike, and nothing. I gave up trying to use it and just went back to the chest strap.
I really love the idea of this app, and the first few minutes with it were great, but it’s a huge problem that I couldn’t get it to pair again with the bike to resume my workout. Glad I didn’t pay the $10 for it.
Was nice when it sort of worked...
Just wanted to come back and update as I’ve got another week of use with the app and it’s worked flawlessly. I haven’t had to do any app quitting and restarting to get it to connect to my Peloton. I am on the WatchOS 7.1 beta, which could be the thing making it work. Whatever it is, it’s working as advertised for me. I simply start the app on my Watch (series 5), start the app on my iPhone (11 Pro Max) and it connects automatically to the Peloton.
An update to my earlier review, as the last two rides the app not only worked, it connected without any trouble and has been rock steady during the rides. I had given up on it and was simply using the Watch workout app, but decided to check if BlueHeart would work and it connected immediately and showed my heart rate on the screen.
Hopefully it continues to work, as I really like having the Watch be able to track my heart rate and it showing up on the Peloton.
Can’t believe I sprung for the paid upgrade, twice (for me and my wife), and I got it to work just a couple of times. It will sometimes connect to the Peloton, but not actually link the heart rate. Super frustrating and the work arounds don’t work either. I wish Peloton would develop a solution, other than needing to get a new bike.
Version 1.5.2 a Game-Changer
I’m a relatively new Peloton bike owner (since March 2020) and immediately purchased the ad-free version of the app after reading about it on a Reddit Peloton thread and how it would make my Apple Watch compatible with the machine. The first couple months were painful with the Bluetooth not connecting and having to jump through 10-15 minutes of start-stop-restart set-up just to get the app connected to the Peloton. Well I’m happy to report that as of the new 1.2 update everything seems to be working seamlessly (knock wood). Love having the watch I wear everyday work with the Peloton so I don’t have to get yet another device! Thanks to the developer for making this work - Peloton should have really bundled this functionality with the bike. Maybe you’ll be able to sell the app to Peloton!
Update for version 1.5.2:
App just got even more usable by not even having to open the Apple Watch app to connect to the Peloton. Now I can just start it solely from the iPhone. Also seems to be less buggy as I’ve not had the same connection issues that have plagued the app in the past.
