Apple Offers New Activity Challenge on Apple Watch for Veterans Day

Apple is planning to offer a special activity challenge on Veterans Day, which is set to take place on Sunday, November 11.

Apple Watch owners who do a workout of 11 minutes or more can earn a special Veterans Day-themed badge that will show up in the Activity app along with a matching sticker to use in the Messages app.


Apple says the award can be earned by doing any workout that's recorded through the Workout app or another app that adds workout information to the health app.

The badge offered for the Veterans Day challenge is the same badge that was awarded for the 2017 Veterans Day challenge, which also tasked Apple Watch owners with completing an 11-minute workout.


Apple does activity challenges on holidays on a regular basis, providing special badges and stickers for those who complete them. The last challenge, for National Parks Day, took place in September.

Fully aware of the history.
But does not change the fact that this is way too easy.


If you’re aware of the history then you’d understand it’s a numbers thing obviously.

Mine and both of my friends did not work either. I earned 5 awards yesterday for perfect weeks and no Veterans Day award.


Same. I did 2 workouts and had badge show as notification on watch (nike s4) but nothing on app? any ideas?

It's only 11 minutes because of Armistice Day... World War 1, the war was over, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918.

Your branch should've been telling you about this, it's the 100 year anniversary...

Only 11 minutes?
I planned on doing the whole physical fitness test for my branch that day.

Seems to be the easiest challenge yet. 11 minutes of exercise and that's it? Suppose it's a Sunday and many only workout during the week but just walking around the grocery store should be enough to get that challenge met.

Mine failed to work. I did three, independent, walking workouts (Sundays are nice for that), one over 40 minutes long.

No biscuit. What’s up with that?

My badge is missing as well. Pretty frustrating.

Does this apply in the UK or only in the US? I don't care if it's not celebrated here - I want to win a soaring eagle emoji to kiss my limey friends with.

You might get a poppy instead ;)

Oh and I think you’ll find November 11th is “celebrated” ever so slightly in the UK
