Formerly known as SmartLink™, this updated, intelligent app provides motivating workouts customized to your goals to help you achieve results. The app wirelessly connects to the Octane machine from your iOS device.

Start by identifying your workout goal, such as Lose Weight, Feel Better, Get Stronger, Athletic Performance or Active Recovery. The app gets you on track with multiple workouts designed specifically for your goal so you exercise smarter. No more guesswork, planning or unproductive routines.

Take on HIIT with Octane’s challenging MMA and 30:30 Interval regimens, or combine cardio, strength and flexibility with an ultra-productive CROSS CiRCUIT® session (not available on xRide® recumbent elliptical). Instructional videos show proper form for more than 35 pre-programmed routines and 225 strength exercises.

On the Zero Runner, take advantage of stride tracing technology to ensure a consistent gait and cadence.

And watch your progress over time, as the app automatically stores all workout history and links with Apple® Health. Fuel your workouts with the Octane Fitness app!

Won’t connect anymore

I installed this version. Connected to my Q37xi updated the head unit. Did a workout a couple times. Now yesterday it refuses to connect anymore. When I tap connect the app spins maybe 5 seconds then times out and provides very unhelpful “help”. Cmon people let’s get this app fixed.

I love my octane elliptical but this app is a big let down. Looking at the frequency of app updates Octane must have outsourced the app and probably has to pay a third party for every fix and update. I have to think if this app was actually done in house we would see much more frequent bug fix updates.

OCTANE, buck up, buy the source back, and hire some people to do this in house full time! Are you listening to these reviews!?

Lacks utility

I’ve had my Q47xi for a month. No problems using the app. It syncs right away for me, at least so far. However, I’m finding the app lacks utility. I feel users should be able to create custom workouts and edit workouts as well. Just today the app recorded the same workout twice. Whatever the reason, it should at last be possible to delete something like that. Also, the app works with Apple Health, but only when using the app on iPhone, not iPad. Workout history will sync, after the fact, but for some reason this doesn’t sync to health. And why there’s no ability to connect Apple Watch is baffling. The app is free, but it’s 500 dollars to upgrade to the xi console, so there’s no excuse for this app not to be better.

Update is a downgrade

I was looking forward to this update. I liked version 2 but the graphics were kinda clunky and connection to the machine not always reliable. Well, they’ve fixed that. Graphics are improved and connection works well for me.

But they also took away a ton of functionality that I liked. The ability to have the app set a 30, 60, or 90 workout program was something I used a lot. Gone. The ability to manually change resistance level mid workout. Gone. Even something as simple as what’s coming in the random workout - basically, to know you’re coming up on a hill before you get there - gone.

I have no idea what they were thinking when they made these decisions. Given the opportunity I’d rather revert to version 2. And of course support for this app is nonexistent. No detailed users manual anywhere, no ‘help’ functionality, just a two minute intro video that covers the very obvious basics.

In sum, this app is an amateurish hack job unbefitting a $4000 piece of workout equipment.
