A google search did not lead me to an answer to this question.
I have tried using Fitness+ workouts at my gym. There is free WiFi there, but it’s not adequate for streaming the videos; so I have to download them to my iPhone beforehand. Nevertheless, I do have a network connection while I’m using Fitness+.
I tried turning on the Burn Bar in a cycling workout. Since it’s comparing my last 2 minutes effort with that of users worldwide, I assume it needs a network connection, which I have. After 2 minutes, Fitness+ tells me that the Burn Bar is not available. This has happened several times; so it doesn’t look like a glitch.
Perhaps Fitness+ thinks that since I’m using a downloaded video it shouldn’t even try to use the Burn Bar. I’m wondering if anyone here has any insight into what is going on.
