How to Fix Fitness Plus Videos Interference Issues

Some iPad and Apple TVs have had issues connecting to the Apple Watch. As a result, the connection can be interrupted at any time. If you find yourself unable to finish a single Fitness+ video, follow some of the tips below.

  1. Turn off your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Wait about 10 seconds before turning them back on.
  2. If you’re using Fitness+ on your Apple TV, ensure that it has no more than one Bluetooth connection. If your Apple TV is connected to multiple Bluetooth devices, this could be the primary issue.
  3. All devices must be on the same Wi-Fi network. Make sure your Apple Watch, Apple TV or iPad are all connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  4. Reboot your iPad. If you’re watching Fitness+ workout videos on your iPad, rebooting the device will certainly help.
  5. There have been some reports from Apple Watch users that Fitness+ does not currently work with the Airpods Pro. Remove and disconnect your AirPod Pros from Fitness+ will resolve the connectivity issue.

Hopefully, some of the solutions above were able to help you watch through the entire workout videos from Fitness+ without any pauses or interruption.
