The static method WorkoutType() should return the shared HKWorkoutType object. It instead returns an object of type HKWorkout.

Yes, this is already fixed [1] by adding a correct 

> HKWorkoutType GetWorkoutType ();

and obsoleting the existing 

> WorkoutType()

You should already have access to this API in the preview releases for tvOS/watchOS that also includes newer API (and fixes) for iOS.

I am not seeing GetWorkoutType(). I have Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin Studio 5.10.1 (build 6) installed.

I already tried the alpha channel.

Do I need to downgrade versions to the ones from this link:

Just confirming I see the fix in the preview. Thank you.
