A watch that considers all the different ways you move.

Apple Watch tracks your daily activity, measures workouts, and encourages healthy routines. And because it’s built to be accessible, you can get accurate fitness tracking however you move, feel a gentle tap when it’s time for a meeting, or hear a text message read aloud.

Activity App

Activity app on Apple Watch

The Activity app provides a snapshot of your daily activity, with the goal of closing each of the three rings every day. For wheelchair users, the rings are Roll, Exercise, and Move. Instead of a Stand goal, the Roll goal encourages you to roll or stretch every hour. For your Exercise and Move goals, Activity measures pushes, so active calories are calculated more accurately. Sensors are configured to address different surface types, inclines, and transition moments, such as moving from a wheelchair to a seat at your desk, or from your chair to your car.
