Treadmill Smart Speed is design to communicate your Treadmill Running Speed from you iPhone or Watch to a receiving devices. It used the same Bluetooth communications protocols as expensive running footpods.
You choose your preferred Speed Input:
1 - Select the speed your treadmill is moving on the app and this is transmitted via bluetooth to your receiver.
2 - Attach the iPhone security to yourself and run. The iPhone's motion sensor will estimate your speed and transmit this to your bluetooth receiver.
****** iPhone 5S and above. *****
3 - Use your phone in combination with your Apple Watch. The Watch will send Speed, Cadence and Heart Rate via your phone and transmit these to your bluetooth receiver. (Watch workouts can be saved as part of your daily activity rings)
• TSS Watch Module - requires an Apple Watch to calculate Heart Rate, Cadence and Speed data.

Ratings and Reviews
More then just Zwift
I downloaded this for Zwift however there was an unexpected side benefit. I have a nordictrack X9i, good treadmill, but horrible software and customer service (don’t buy anything from icon fitness). Anyway, when this is running it will not only broadcast your Heat rate to Zwift it will broadcast it to iFit, the treadmill, also. The app creator should advertise this as Zwift. All though knowing nordictrack if they would disable it in the next firmware update. The app is 5 stars all the way.
Works just as described. Cheapest way to get started on Zwift’s run feature and works as advertised. What more can you say or ask for? Thank you for taking the time to develop the app!
No iwatch app
I paid for this app because it said it had an iwatch app but when I downloaded it there was no app on my watch I’m not happy because I paid money for this app just to not use it
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
