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.

The Workout app lets you accurately measure your movement in specific exercise routines and set goals based on time, distance or calories. For wheelchair users, there are two unique workouts — Outdoor Wheelchair Walk Pace and Outdoor Wheelchair Run Pace. Just choose a workout and Apple Watch turns on the appropriate sensors.

Updated Siri

Siri Watch Face on Apple Watch

With Apple Watch Series 3 and Series 4, you can ask Siri to set a reminder, send a calendar invitation and handle more of the things you do every day. And with cellular, you can do all that even when you’re away from your iPhone. The updated Siri watch face is an even better personal assistant, offering more predictive and proactive shortcuts throughout the day based on your routines, locations and when you use certain apps. Quickly message a family member, turn on the living room air con or start a workout, podcast or playlist — exactly when and where you need to do it. You can even create shortcuts that cue several of these actions at once through simple, custom phrases like “Heading Home,” without having to go into each individual app.
