On Sunday, June 21, 2020, Apple Watch owners are encouraged to complete a twenty-minute yoga session in order to complete the International Day of Yoga Activity Challenge. Competitors will be able to use the Yoga session built into the Workout app or another exercise app as long as it is connected to the Health app.

Those who complete the Activity Challenge will receive a digital trophy as well as three stickers to send to their friends in the Messages app.
