How to unlock Earth Day Apple Watch Activity Challenge reward
Today, in celebration of Earth Day, Apple has launched a new Earth Day Apple Watch Activity Challenge, that rewards users with special iMessage stickers and a reward in the Fitness app.
Apple says, “Let’s get out and celebrate the planet on Earth Day, April 22. Do any workout for 30 minutes or more to earn this award. Record your time with the Workout app or any app that adds workouts to Health.”
Users can unlock this reward by recording workouts using either the Workout app on Apple Watch, completing exercises in Apple Fitness+, or with any app that connects with the Health app. The reward will then show in the Fitness app under the Awards section of the Summary tab.
How to record a Workout on Apple Watch
- Open the Workouts app on your Apple Watch and tap the type of exercise you’re about to do, for example, Outdoor Walk
- After tapping your chosen exercise, 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
