We’re excited to announce two new developments to help you play VR and get fit wherever you are, at home or on the move. VirZOOM games are now finally available for mobile VR, starting today with VirZOOM Arcade on Gear VR. And later this year, you’ll get to turn your own bike into a VirZOOM bike with the VZ Sensor, available for the discounted preorder price of $89.
It’s time for mobile VR
VirZOOM Arcade is now available for the Samsung Gear VR with controller, and is compatible with Samsung Galaxy S8 and newer phones. We’ll also soon be announcing compatibility with Google Daydream VR headsets, and availability on the Google Play store. Stay tuned for updates on availability.
Want to give mobile VirZOOM a try now? If you’re a Gear VR user with a compatible setup but you’re new to VirZOOM, check out our instructions at our setup page and download our games for free. If you’re already a VirZOOM user and want to try pedaling with an untethered VR headset for a change, visit your My VirZOOM account page and get a download code under “Download VirZOOM Arcade for Gear VR.” Got any questions? Check out our online manual, or if all else fails, hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Turn your bike into a VirZOOM bike
We’re also really excited to be able to bring VirZOOM to everybody out there who already has an exercise bike they love to use. The VZ Sensor is small enough to fit in your pocket, and easily wraps around the pedal crank of an exercise bike. We’d like to thank everybody who supports us early with a $10 preorder discount. And just like with the VirZOOM Bike Controller, ordering directly from our website includes free US shipping and a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can try it risk-free.
With a controller in hand and VZ Sensor on your bike, you can play VirZOOM-ready games on mobile and PC VR alike. If you frequent a gym that doesn’t happen to have a VR setup on every bike, you can still grab a mobile VR setup and VZ Sensor to play anywhere. And if you absolutely must track your vital statistics but are looking for something more portable than our bike controller with heart rate sensors, VirZOOM Arcade will pick up and display readings from a Samsung Gear smartwatch.
In the year since we launched the VirZOOM Bike Controller, we’ve welcomed thousands of players to work out with us in VR. We’ve heard all of you who said you’d love to try it, but only if we’d meet you where you are. And now, we’re looking forward to seeing you at the races, flying over the canyons, and shooting it out in Thunder Bowl.
