Reported by 9to5Mac, this year's 'Heart Month Challenge' is set to begin on February 8th and run through February 14th. Apple Watch owners can complete the challenge by closing their Excercise Ring for seven days in a row. Being that February 8th to February 14th is seven days, you'll have to close your ring every day of this challenge.

"Put your heart into earning this award! Close your Exercise ring for seven days in a row starting February 8 and ending February 14."

This challenge does not require you to do anything specific about your Stand or Move Rings, but to close the Exercise Ring you must log at least thirty minutes of exercise each day. Those who complete this year's 'Heart Month Challenge' will receive three new stickers for iMessage and a virtual 2020 medal that will live in the Activity app, a nice gift for yourself on Valentine's Day.
