August 25 is the Grand Canyon National Park’s 100 year anniversary. It’s also the date for an August Apple Watch Activity Challenge.
2019 Earth Day falls on April 22, and we have a few details on the Activity Challenge Apple is preparing for the event.
It sounds like you should expect an alert for the challenge on or around November 8.
The first observance of International Women’s Day was held on February 28, 1909.
The Heart Month Challenge is simply to fill your exercise rings seven days in a row any time in February, starting February 8th.
This challenge is only available to Apple Watch users in the United States. May your turkeys be juicy and your waistbands stretchy.
To earn the badge, you have to complete an 11 minute workout on Veterans Day.
Apple’s next Activity challenge will be Mother’s Day, when you’ll be able to earn an Apple Watch badge for walking, running, or wheelchairing a mile or more. 9to5Mac uncovered a reference to the challenge, as well as images of the badge you’ll be able to get. Apple has done special holiday challenges several times before, including Thanksgiving 2016, New Year’s Day 2017, and Earth Day 2017. This Mother’s Day challenge may be U.S.-only, as not every country has a Mother’s Day, and they don’t share the same date. I love these Activity challenges. It’s just a badge, and you can’t do anything with it, but darned if I don’t want to earn them when they’re offered. Accordingly, do your mother proud and get to moving on Mother’s Day, which is Sunday, May 14th this year.
