Apple Makes Fitness Intentions Clear With Latest Watch Updates

June 11, 2024

Apple today previewed watchOS 11, which will bring exciting new data-driven features to the Watch including a new Vitals app, enhanced pregnancy features, training load measurement, customizable Activity Rings and safety features for late-night and early-morning workouts, demonstrating Apple’s commitment to innovating in the fitness space.

The Vitals app allows users to surface key metrics to make informed day-to-day decisions. It provides quick access to data like heart rate, respiratory rate, wrist temperature, sleep duration, and blood oxygen levels. Users can receive notifications when metrics are out of their typical range and a message on how best to improve them. Vitals uses an algorithm developed from the Apple Heart and Movement Study, which uses real data to understand heart health and physical activity. Athletech News
