The Apple Watch rolls out a new challenge for the New Year
Making excuses for breaking New Years resolutions used to be a hell of a lot simpler. Now that weve got social media for every life choice and are wearing our fitness levels on our wrists, theres really no reason not to keep up. Which isnt to say, of course, that we all couldnt use an extra jolt.
Back in November, Apple offered anotherholiday-themed fitness challenge a Turkey Trot-style 5K tied to Thanksgiving. Naturally, the company will be doing something similar tied to the New Year an update set to start rolling out to Apple Watch owners on December 28 thats designed to extend the challenge for a full month.
When they pop their watcheson in the morning, theyll be greeted by the Ring in the New Year Challenge set for January 2 (to give wearersan extra day to recover, one assumes), designed to get users to close all three of the Watchs rings for a full week during the month.
As with the Turkey Trot, Apple will be looking to make this a social event, with shareable achievements and goals for hitting a full weeks worth of activity in early January or as we like to call it here, CES.
