How do I earn points for riding a stationary bike with an Apple Watch?
Unfortunately, we are not sent heart rate or calorie information from Apple Health. You could fasten your Apple Watch to your ankle or shoe laces, so that the device can track your steps. If you are unable to track that way, then unfortunately, you would need to utilize a device that does send Go365 HR and/or calorie information (such as Garmin).
I can’t strap my watch to my ankle because the band isn't long enough, and strapping it to my shoelace won’t work, because the watch needs to Be touching my skin in order to be counting. BUT, I can connect my phone to my ankle while riding, to count steps. I wonder if that will work?
It is certainly worth a try, if you feel comfortable doing so. Otherwise, you will need to utilize a device that sends calories burned, as mentioned above.
Keep up the great work!
Just in case anyone else has this question, if you move your iPhone up to the top of the priority list on the "Data Source" for steps, and then attach the phone to your ankle with a jogging armband for your phone, it will at least count steps for your indoor cycle. You would probably get more points if you had a device that reported calories or heart rate, but so far this works well to at least get points without having to buy a new device.
