Apple launches new Time to Walk feature for Apple Watch and Apple Fitness+
Apple has today launched a new Time to Walk feature part of Apple Fitness+ on Apple Watch. Time to Walk is “an inspiring new audio walking experience,” says Apple. It encourages users to walk more often with weekly original audio content from celebrities which can be played while walking with an Apple Watch.
Today, four episodes of Time to Walk have launched with country music star Dolly Parton, NBA player Draymond Green, Musician Shawn Mendes and Emmy Award winner Uzo Aduba. New episodes will be available in the Workout app on Apple Watch from a different guest each Monday through the end of April.
“Walking is the most popular physical activity in the world, and one of the healthiest things we can do for our bodies. A walk can often be more than just exercise: It can help clear the mind, solve a problem, or welcome a new perspective,” said Jay Blahnik, Apple’s senior director of Fitness Technologies. “Even throughout this challenging period of time, one activity that has remained available to many is walking. With Time to Walk, we’re bringing weekly original content to Apple Watch in Fitness+ that includes some of the most diverse, fascinating, and celebrated guests offering inspiration and entertainment to help our users keep moving through the power of walking.”
Apple today unveiled Time to Walk, an inspiring new audio walking experience on Apple Watch for Fitness+ subscribers, created to encourage users to walk more often and reap the benefits from one of the healthiest activities. Each original Time to Walk episode invites users to immerse themselves in a walk alongside influential and interesting people as they share thoughtful and meaningful stories, photos, and music. Time to Walk can be enjoyed anytime and anywhere with Apple Watch and AirPods or other Bluetooth headphones.
Apple’s new pay-monthly fitness subscription service, Apple Fitness+ launched in December. The service gives access to studio-style workouts on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. Using the Workouts features on Apple Watch, the service integrates personal metrics such as heart rate and calorie burn within the on-screen sessions, making classes personalized and interactive.
Walking has always been one of my favorite ways to clear my head and gain new perspectives. We hope Time to Walk can bring a little inspiration, some companionship and perhaps a laugh all while enjoying the benefits of one of the healthiest activities. https://t.co/CaZpdwlVc2
