Apple Kicking Off New Apple Watch Fitness Challenge on Earth Day

Apple's next Activity Challenge for Apple Watch owners will take place on Earth Day, which falls on Monday, April 22. Apple Watch users will be able to earn the Earth Day 2019 badge by doing any workout for 30 minutes or more.

Details on the upcoming challenge were shared this afternoon on Twitter by Kyle Seth Gray, who also shared images of the achievement badge and accompanying iMessage sticker those who complete the challenge will receive.

Apple hosts Activity Challenges for major holidays and well-known events, and for the past several years, there's been an Earth Day Challenge. Goals in both 2017 and 2018 were the same as the 2019 goal -- complete a 30 minute workout.

Apple often celebrates Earth Day in a variety of ways, and Apple retail employees are likely to don green shirts in honor of the environment-focused event. Apple retail stores are also likely to be updated with green leaf accents on their logos, something that Apple does on Earth Day each year.

Apple has done two other Activity Challenges this year to celebrate International Women's Day in March and Heart Month in February.

Is it just me, or is earning those badges extremely addictive?

I actually sent a letter Tim Cook's email saying how much Apple Health and the Fitness app have helped me. Since August 2017 I've dropped 265+ pounds, from 444 to my last weigh in at 181. Hoping another 15 or so pounds. I've been perfect on my rings going over 1 year now. These challenges always manage to get me going.

The fitness challenges and badges are not that challenging.
Except, I never mentioned anything about them being ‘challenging’ (Nor was that my point), I mentioned that I find them ‘addictive’ to actually complete, mainly on the competition side of things for my own satisfaction. Either way, what’s not challenging to you might be for someone else, which you didn’t take into consideration.

You. The fitness challenges and badges are not that challenging, at least not in my opinion.
Cocaine is not very challenging but addictive, I suppose.
But hey, thanks for the lecture!
You're well on your way to completing your negativity badge for this week!

Yep and it’s wonderful that Apple created something that encourages me to be more active. Yeah I know there’s other options, but Apple Watch was the most appealing one to me.

My dad and sister are in an Activity competition, and it has my dad doing laps up and down the stairs before midnight lol. Extremely addictive.

Yeah. If Apple could focus on actual products. That would be great.
They are. They're focusing on their Apple Watch owners. Some of whom bought the watch for stuff just like this.

By the way, they're a big enough company to split their focus on multiple different projects. While one team is working on stuff like this, another can be designing new watch bands while others work on new Animoji and yet others work on next iPhone, Mac, iPad, AirPods, etc. If you think the entire company worked on this and only this, you should learn more about how big businesses operate.

Report Highlights Danger of Using AirTags for Tracking Dogs

AirTags may be a convenient way for tracking dogs that might get off leash or otherwise lost, but there are dangers associated with the practice, as outlined by a report from The Wall Street Journal. At 1.26 inches in diameter, AirTags are able to fit easily on a dog's collar, but that size also makes the tracking devices small enough to swallow, at least for a medium to large-sized dog, and ...
