I have a Peloton bike plus and an Apple Watch 8. After a recent Peloton software update the watch stopped communicating with the bike’s screen. When the connect to watch comes on the screen after starting a ride, and after hitting the confirm on watch, the watch opens the activity app, but does not talk to the screen.

When I spoke with Peloton, today, I was told it is an apple update problem.

The Apple Watch uses an optical mechanism to read your heart rate, not electrical like a chest HRM where moisture would help. likely was just coincidental that worked.
From online, the Apple Watch uses photoplethysmography
How Apple Watch measures your heart rate. The optical heart sensor in Apple Watch uses what is known as photoplethysmography. This technology, while difficult to pronounce, is based on a very simple fact: Blood is red because it reflects red light and absorbs green light
