The award-winning Octane Fitness cardio equipment just got even smarter with SmartLink, the intelligent app that links your fitness goals to real results! The SmartLink app wirelessly connects to and controls your Octane from your iOS Device.
What's your goal? On the standing and recumbent ellipticals, choose from Lose Weight, Feel Better, Get Stronger, or improve your Athletic Performance. And on the Zero Runner, select Endurance, Strength or Active Recovery.
SmartLink has you covered with multiple workouts designed specifically for each of these goals to help you achieve the results you’re after. No more guesswork, planning or unproductive routines – just choose your goal and go!
SmartLink can customize 30-, 60- or 90-day workout programs for you, designed to deliver motivation and results – and get you toward your goal faster! Programs begin with easier, shorter sessions and increase challenges and duration as you get more fit. SmartLink intelligence even recalibrates mid-plan if necessary to ensure that you are making progress.
Plus, now you can easily combine cardio, strength and flexibility sessions on one machine – for double the effectiveness and efficiency – with Octane’s exclusive CROSS CiRCUIT (not available on xRide recumbent elliptical). SmartLink’s instructional videos demonstrate proper form and provide instructions for a multitude of strength training and flexibility exercises. And because Octane continues to load new workouts, your options are endless!
Zero Runner users can take advantage of innovative stride tracing technology that lets them monitor and analyze their gait and adjust their form as necessary to ensure that they stay strong throughout every mile of every run.
As for workout tracking, SmartLink automatically stores your sweat session details to chronicle your progress since the day you started. And you can quickly share your success with your friends with social network links.
SmartLink transforms elliptical exercise into a long-term, fit lifestyle by creating customized workout progressions to get you to your selected goal. This app is your workout coach, partner and electronic log. Now you can use your iPad during workouts not only to check email, surf the Net, watch TV and more, but also to ensure that your exercise routines are truly effective and motivational. You get to multitask to the max, and your body benefits from SmartLink’s expert guidance and multiple workout options.

What's New in Version 2.0.7
Minor bug fixes and improvements.
Not quite okay.
One more example of a application designed for someone other than the end user.
The app does not sync consistently with the machine which would not be that big of a issue if the machine would remember my age and weight. So without the app the data needs to be entered for each work out. Fiddling with the machine or fiddling with the app is often my choice in the morning. (Update: The machine will remember age and weight. In the instructions, spend 30 minutes and push a whole bunch of buttons. Then more buttons to tell it who you are.)
The app locks the whole phone in portrait mode when open not just the app. Again not a big deal just a pain.
To design a workout, well I just do not know how to do that. There seems to be some functionality for this or a way to adapt the preset workouts but the in app process eludes me. I have saved workouts but to where I do not know.
The saving of data is limited to the format set, once again not useful to me.
No export to health kit.
A lot of time was spent making this application pretty and clean looking. Though usefulness, to me anyway, is very limited.
Update; this update is to change my rating from 2 stars to 1 star. The machine is great! I ,mostly, fixed the linking issue, but! The app is designed like it came right out of a spread sheet, it may be good for a pro level user but not for me.
Anyway I found a way to get what I need using my Apple Watch and minimal button pushing.
The app is gone, yea!!
The Smartlink would not sync AT ALL to my Q37xi. After problems with getting a hold of anyone to figure out the problem I finally got an email and was able to talk to someone. Once we figured out the radio portion of the machine was out they sent me the new part (as the part was still under warranty). The part came fast and I was able to install it on my own. Now the machine is working again and Smartlink is connecting to my Ipad bluetooth.
Lots of issues
It was smart for octane fitness to generate an App to try and convince people that it was different than all the other machines on the market. Unfortunately this app has failed several times. It doesn't sync all the time. It also doesn't register fitness assessments after I've done them multiple times. Sometimes the machine is registering that I'm working out, but the app is showing a bunch of dashes. These guys need to get with an app developer and fix all the bugs!
