Whether it's the latest Apple Watch Series 7 or something a little older, Apple's watches are a great way to track exercise or just how much you move during a normal day. Coupled with apps, Apple devices create a whole ecosystem that can be leveraged to help improve your health, with the apps highlighted today just the tip of the iceberg. Apple's own Fitness+ is a great option as well, giving people access to guided workouts across a whole range of activities and capability levels.

Fitness tracking might just be the best Apple Watch feature on offer and now is as good a time as any to make use of it. The App Store is full of apps to help you on your way.
