This new feature, together with the Apple Watch, will further improve your fitness experience with this device. In fact, the new Apple Watch Series 6 includes such tools as blood oxygen monitoring and an ECG app that accompanies the heart rate monitor that was already present in Apple Watch since its inception.
Apple realizes that their watch is incredibly popular as an exercise tool, which is why they decided to create a service that can also be used on iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV.
Your Apple Watch will collect data and display it along with the training video of your choice. You can track your physical activity in detail on any of your Apple devices with Apple Fitness Plus.
How does Apple Fitness + work?
Your Apple Watch will be used to track your training data. Then you will need another Apple device like iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV and download the upcoming app.
You will have at your disposal a catalog of videos with different training courses guided by different professional instructors. While doing your chosen class or workout, you can see your data, such as heart rate or calories burned, at the top of the video in real time.
Another function will be to set goals and receive encouragement notifications when you reach them. This will surely be one of the best ways to stay motivated to continue exercising in your everyday life.
Speaking of motivation: you can compare your exercise with that of other people who have done the same workout (only if you want).
What types of workouts will be available on Apple Fitness +?
For now, Apple has said it will organize workouts for 10 different types of physical activity. He also explained that new workouts will be added every week, which means you won’t get bored of having to repeat the same workouts every day.
The training will be in the following disciplines:
- Treadmill (walking)
- Treadmill (running)
