Echelon is excited to share a completely redesigned and rewritten workout experience for our iOS users.

First, we bring an entirely new portrait workout experience where the full video is available, including your Leaderboard and workout metrics.

This transformative experience will allow you to have increased visibility over your workout stats for a more effective ride. We utilize a new responsive layout that adapts to your device’s screen. Now, whether you are using your smartphone or tablet, the workout will be ready to give you everything you need to climb those hills — and the Leaderboard!


Here at Echelon, we are focusing more on accuracy and reliability. We rebuilt the equipment connection from the ground up to ensure a solid experience. This foundational reorganization will provide the groundwork for massive improvements and future enhancements. The first of which is the ability to change your Echelon Connect Bike or Smart Rower’s resistance right from the Echelon Fit® app. In addition to changing the resistance up or down on the fly, you can go into Leaderboard Preferences to set personalized “Preset” values that sync across all your iOS devices.


In the middle of a tough stretch in a Power 20 run, a burst of encouragement can make all the difference. So we brought Hi-5s to the forefront! Tap on a fellow runner (or rider/rower) on the Leaderboard and send them a bit of strength to finish strong.

Received a Hi-5? Don’t leave them hanging! Be sure to tap on the message they sent you and send one right back. 


Our newly designed Workout Summary screen allows you to easily see your stats, rate the class, and know where you finished on the Leaderboard.


This update is slowly rolling out to iOS 12 and later versions over the next week. Please check the App Store® periodically to see if the update is available for you! Our team is currently hard at work to bring these updates to the Echelon Fit® app for other devices. Android smartphones and tablets as well as Echelon screened equipment can expect the update later this year.


All of us at Echelon, we hope you love this release as much as we do! Consider this just the beginning of monumental changes across the entire Echelon lineup. See you on the Leaderboard!


Release FAQs

Which devices will have this update?

The new workout update will be available for all iPhones and iPads with at least iOS 12. Please note that the “Presets” function is not supported for users on iOS 12.


When will other devices have access to this update?

Our team is currently hard at work to bring these updates to the Echelon Fit® app for other devices. Android smartphones and tablets as well as Echelon screened equipment can expect the update later this year.


Will the “Presets” feature be available for Echelon Strides? 

The “Presets” feature is only on Echelon Connect Bikes and Smart Rowers. It is not available for Smart Treadmills as the resistance can already be easily adjusted on the equipment.
