The Apple Watch has been designed to give you a complete picture of your all-day activity. The Activity app uses three rings to show your daily progress in terms of calories-burned, brisk activity achieved and how often you’ve stood up to have a break from sitting – it will even notify you if you’ve been sitting too long!
Apple Watch is also described as an advanced sports watch as it gives real-time stats for your favourite workouts including running and cycling. The watch measures all the ways you move and encourages you to keep moving. Over time, it learns your fitness levels and suggests personalised all-day activity goals.
