How to participate in the Apple Watch Yoga Day Activity Challenge
Apple is hosting a special Apple Watch Yoga Day Activity Challenge for Apple Watch wearers across the globe, rewarding those who complete a yoga workout of 15 minutes or more with a trio of animated stickers to be used in iMessage, and a virtual trophy in the Activity app on iOS.
The challenge is open all day on Friday, June 21st and can be completed by finishing any yoga workout within an app that stores workout data to the Health app on iOS.
How to record a Workout on Apple Watch
- Open the Workouts app on your Apple Watch and tap yoga from the list of workout types
- After tapping yoga, your Apple Watch will do a 3 second countdown and begin recording your workout
- You’ll see the Workouts app show the progress of your workout, including metrics such as the amount of calories burnt, your heart rate and the length of time you’ve been active
When you’ve finished your 15 minute exercise, end your Workout (here’s how to pause and end a Workout on Apple Watch) and await your award! – Apple notes these rewards could take 9 days to appear in the app, although rewards usually show instantly in the Activity app on iPhone.
