Apple is planning to offer a new "Ring in the New Year" Apple Watch Activity Challenge starting on Saturday, January 1.

The Activity Challenge will require users to close all three of their Fitness rings for seven days in a row in January. That means meeting all stand, exercise, and move goals for a week.

The event challenges Apple Watch users to close their Stand, Exercise, and Move rings for seven days in a row during the month of January.

As usual with an Apple Watch Activity Challenge, you'll be able to use any exercise app that integrates with Apple's Health app. Completing the challenge in full will get finishers a custom reward in the Fitness app as well as exclusive stickers in the Messages and FaceTime app.

Apple Watch users are likely to receive a push notification to their watch in the coming weeks to notify them of the challenge. Those looking to complete the event can also use Apple Fitness+ to do so, Apple's workout subscription service.
