Closers. Up close.

To inspire you to close your Activity rings, here’s a quick look at how other Apple Watch owners are closing theirs.

Haley A.

I’m a pretty competitive person. So it’s always a good feeling when I close the rings.

Haley competes for the US National Team as an elite open water swimmer. She uses the Pool Swim workout to track her yardage in the pool, where she closes her Exercise ring in training sessions every morning. Because she’s highly competitive, Haley tries to double her Move and Exercise rings every day.

Haley’s swimming metrics are duration, active calories, laps, and distance.

Jason L.

I believe in exercising the mind, the body, and the heart.

In addition to the strenuous workout he gets on the podium, Jason likes to close his rings using the Workout app to track swimming, cycling and weight lifting. When it comes to staying mentally fit, reminders from the Breathe app nudge Jason during his busy day, helping him to recenter.

The Heart Rate app lets Jason quickly check his pulse during performance breaks.

Natsumi Y.

Apple Watch helps me be a better instructor. It also shows me how to live a healthier life.

Natsumi is a yoga instructor and model living in Tokyo. She uses the Yoga workout to close her Exercise ring while she’s teaching a class. On occasion, Natsumi likes to surprise her students by taking them on hiking expeditions, where the Hiking workout tracks her distance and calorie burn. If Natsumi’s rings aren’t closed by the afternoon, she walks to her modeling gigs.

Natsumi uses the Breathe watch face to begin yoga classes.

Atilla K.

I love to work out with Apple Watch. It doesn’t have stuff that gets in the way. It just has what I need.

Couch potato turned avid marathon runner, cyclist, and swimmer, Atilla credits his transformation to Apple Watch. To close his rings, he makes sure to schedule two workouts every day. On his 19-kilometre runs, Atilla streams Apple Music for motivation. If he hasn’t closed his rings (which he admits being addicted to), an Outdoor Cycle or Open Water Swim workout gets the job done in the evening.

Rolling Pace lets Atilla see a kilometre split at any point on his run.

Eric G.

We sometimes forget we are flesh and bone. Apple Watch comes in handy keeping you aware of that fact.

At 65, Eric prides himself on being in great shape. He closes his rings five times a week, walking everywhere throughout the city to visit clients, friends, and neighborhood shops. Along the way, Eric loves to watch his rings close and see the kilometres, calories, and flights of stairs stack up in the Outdoor Walk workout and the Activity app. Eric finds himself moving just as much on the weekends, dancing, playing volleyball, and riding his bike.

Eric uses Maps to find his way around the city.

Yocelin S.

I love the fact that I have all my information on my wrist. And that I don’t have to carry my phone.

As a busy student and point guard on her college basketball team, Yocelin doesn’t know what it means to sit still. She closes her rings virtually every day, running and lifting weights to stay in competitive shape. When she’s not on the court or in the classroom, Yocelin racks up even more Move calories and Exercise minutes taking care of her three younger brothers. If it weren’t for bedtime reminders from her Apple Watch, she might never rest.

Yocelin stays motivated during workouts and before each game using AirPods to listen to her favorite songs.
