Apple Watch monitors your activity and workouts with two separate apps

by John_A

Has the Apple Watch spelled doom for dedicated fitness devices? Apple knows how seriously its users take fitness, which is why it’s built a pair of apps specifically for the new wearable. The first is activity, which eliminates the need for a Fitbit-esque activity tracker by measuring your sitting, standing and movement on a daily basis. For instance, you can set the move ring to disappear when you’ve burned off enough calories that day. It’s the same situation with exercise: which it qualifies as anything over the intensity of a brisk walk, which you need to do for half an hour each day. Then there’s the standing ring, which goes away once you’ve stood for at least a minute in each hour, up to 12 hours. The software will also learn your activity patterns and, when it spots you being particularly sedentary, will give you a Jawbone-esque reminder to get up off the couch.
