Want to use your AirPod Pro while exercising on your Peloton? Learn how to connect the two devices on our blog.
The Peloton is a great workout machine, but it can be made even better with the addition of AirPod Pro earbuds. The company has made it easy to connect the two devices, and doing so can enhance your Peloton experience in a number of ways.
First of all, connecting your AirPod Pros to your Peloton will allow you to hear your instructors better. It is particularly crucial if you are having a class in a noisy environment or have trouble hearing normally.
Additionally, the earbuds will stay in place better than traditional headphones, meaning you won’t have to readjust them as often. You don’t have to worry about sweating as well since AirPods are water-resistant.

AirPods Keep Disconnecting from Peloton
For AirPods that keep disconnecting from your Peloton bike during a workout, make sure that your AirPod Pro earbuds are fully charged first. If they’re not, connect them to their charging case and let them charge for at least 15 minutes before trying to use them again.
Next, check to see if there’s anything obstructing the signal between your earbuds and the bike, such as your hair, a hat, or sunglasses. If there is, try moving the earbuds closer to the bike or removing the obstruction.
If your AirPods are still disconnecting from Peloton, try resetting them. To do this, press and hold the setup button on the back of the charging case for at least 15 seconds until you see the status light flash white. Then open the lid of the case and put your AirPods back in your ears.
