Apple Watch owners in China will be happy to hear that Apple is getting ready to launch its latest Apple Watch Activity Challenge to the country next month.

Reported by 9to5Mac, Apple's next Apple Watch Activity Challenge is set to kick off on August 8th in China in celebration of National Fitness Day. Those who complete the challenge will win some exclusive badges and stickers.

Apple will reward users with exclusive badges in the Activity app, as well as animated stickers for use in Messages and FaceTime. The achievement can be reached by recording any workout of 30 minutes or longer, from any app that records data to Apple Health.

According to Apple, the challenge will only require people to complete thirty minutes of exercise using either the Workout app on the Apple Watch or any third-party app that works with the Health app.

"August 8 is a great day to celebrate fitness. Earn this special award by doing any workout for at least 30 minutes on National Fitness Day. Record your time in the Workout app or any app that adds workouts to Health."

9to5Mac notes that this is the third year that Apple has hosted the challenge but that the holiday itself has existed since 2008.

China has celebrated National Fitness Day every year since the 2008 Beijing Olympics. This marks the third year in a row in which Apple has gotten involved with an Apple Watch Activity Challenge. This is a rare instance where Activity Challenges are geo-locked.

Apple Watch owners in China should be starting to receive notification of the challenge.
