Using Peloton Tread with zwift

Deos anyone know if I can pair the peloton treadmill directly to zwift without using a run pod? Please let me know if you know if you can or cannot, thx.

You cannot.

the peloton tread does not have bluetooth?so you have to use a foot pod?

Yes, or a NPE RUNN.

I can see why Peloton nerfed the Tread so it would be usable only with their paid service. But somebody needs to hack it and figure out how to unlock it. For the price it looks like a really nice treadmill. Sort of Woodway’ish …
