Apple Fitness + users have had a problem for several hours when a nearby Apple Watch is paired on the Apple TV. When starting a workout, the fitness app crashes and the user is automatically taken to the Apple TV home screen.
Apple Fitness + crashes when you start training
An Apple Watch must be paired to use Apple Fitness + on the television. The current problem is causing some to be unable to use the service. One possible fix is to AirPlay from an iPhone instead of using the Fitness app on Apple TV.
The error seems to have been caused by a change on the server side and not by a specific software update on the Apple Watch or Apple TV, so that the American company should be able to fix it. There is still no indication of the malfunction on the official page on the Apple system status.
Apple Fitness + was introduced at the end of 2020 and is not (yet) available in Germany. It is not clear whether and – if so – what will happen to us.
