Doesn’t work (updated)

Broken software. Won’t connect my Apple Watch 8. App just says can’t find anything even though app is on both phone and watch and Bluetooth is on. Tried searching from the watch and from iPhone 12 Pro. Neither see anything. Never had any issue connecting anything else.

Digging into it more I discovered I had to buy hardware to get this to work with Hydrow (which can Bluetooth to any standard heart rate monitor without additional hardware). Found out way to late into this I needed additional (expensive) adapter to get this to work. Works, but pricey, and mislead. Took off one star for that.

Initially, I was skeptical. I have had Apple Watches in the distant past but never felt they measured up to the traditional training smartwatch. As the Apple Watch Ultra came out, I considered giving it another go but Apple did not integrate well into my training platforms, bike computer, or trainer so I looked into possible solutions I found Watch Link with the Watch Link USB and Watch Link Pod hardware. It seemed like it could be a really good answer but I was still skeptical. I contacted the company and had multiple extremely helpful and honest interactions which ultimately led me to use the app along with purchasing both the Pod and USB Watch Link products. Shipping was very prompt. The setup and integration into all my equipment and training platforms was intuitive, simple, and quick. There is no delay in reconnecting each day and there is no signal loss or drops. Further, it appears to be extremely accurate when checked against other HR monitors. Up until recently, I have held on to my prior traditional training smartwatch but have finally sold it. For my training, I plan to continue with Watch Link as long as possible. I also happen to be a physician working in Obesity and Lifestyle Medicine. I have recommended both the app and hardware to multiple patients who have Apple Watches.

Customer service

I purchased a watchlink usb to use with my peloton tread. Two days after receiving it, setting it up and having it work on the tread. Peloton announced that the apple watch was now compatible. I sent an email to PK fitness requesting consideration of a return even if it was partial. They responded quickly and worked with me to return the item with a full refund. Customer service is always highest on my list of referring friends and family as without customers there is no business. I would consider this product and recommend them due to loyalty and high regard.
