Why does a subscription with a bike or tread cost $39 but the digital app is only $13?

One common question people have is they start out by trying Peloton through the Peloton Digital app. After the free trial expires, the Peloton Digital subscription is only $13 a month. They then purchase a Peloton Bike or Tread, and find out their cost has jumped from $13/month to $39/month. What is the reason for this big difference in price?

With the app, you get no metrics (besides heart rate), are limited to one user using the subscription, and don’t show up on the leaderboard.

With a full subscription through a Peloton device, you get full metrics (power, cadence, heart rate), are able to compete via the leaderboard, and can have multiple logins through your subscription (so you and multiple people in your household can work out on Peloton digital through the same subscription).
