What you need to know

  • Apple has scheduled two new Apple Watch Activity Challenges.
  • Both Russia and China have challenges set for the month of August.

The latest Apple Watch Activity Challenges are close for Apple Watch users in Russia and China.

As reported by 9to5Mac, Apple has announced two Apple Watch Activity Challenges that are coming in August: The "National Fitness Day Challenge" on August 8th in China and the "Physical Culture Day Challenge" on August 14th in Russia. Both challenges require Apple Watch users to complete one exercise of thirty minutes or longer.

On August 8 in China:

National Fitness Day Challenge

On August 8, let's all earn this award by doing any workout for at least 30 minutes. Record your time in the Workout app or any app that adds workouts to Health.

And on August 14 in Russia:

Physical Culture Day Challenge

On August 14, we're celebrating Physical Culture Day! Earn this award by completing any workout for 30 minutes or more. Record time in the Workout app or in any other app that sends workout data to the Health app.

Those who are looking to complete either challenge can do so by recording a workout of 30 minutes or longer using the Workout app on their Apple Watch. Another option is to record a workout in any exercise app that integrates with the Apple Health app. Just make sure that the app integration is turned on before you start your exercise.

Those who complete the challenges will receive a digital award as well as exclusive stickers that can be used in the Messages and FaceTime app.

Adding a blood oxygen sensor and always-on altimeter doesn't seem like a big upgrade, but when paired with everything else the Apple Watch does, this is the most significant upgrade since the Series 4.
