In order to complete the new challenge, Apple Watch users must log a hike, walk, run, or wheelchair workout of at least one mile.
As with any Apple Watch Activity Challenge, you can complete the workout using either the Workout app on Apple Watch, Apple Fitness+, or an exercise app that syncs with the Health app on iPhone.

Completing the challenge will get you an award for a special edition set of stickers you can use in the Messages and FaceTime app.
