Apple's Heart Month Activity Challenge Requires 60 Minutes of Exercise on Valentine's Day

Today only, Apple Watch owners can complete a new Apple Watch activity challenge in celebration of Heart Month, which is aimed at promoting cardiovascular health.

Apple Watch Heart Month Challenge
The challenge, which is listed in the Fitness app on the iPhone, tasks users with earning 60 minutes on their Exercise ring.

Show your heart some love. Get this award by earning 60 minutes on your Exercise ring this Valentine's Day, February 14.

Completing the challenge will award users with a unique badge viewable in both the Summary tab of the Fitness app on ‌iPhone‌ and the Awards section of the Activity app on Apple Watch.

Activity Challenges are often tied to special occasions or holidays throughout the year, including Earth Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day, and New Year's. Earlier in February, Apple kicked off a Unity challenge in celebration of black history, tasking users to close their Move rings seven times in a row during the month.

It’s already the 14th here in Australia, and I’ve already completed 87mins of exercises and still not showing as completed!!!!!
Exactly the same here. If done 63 minutes, the wife has done 67 (don’t ask) and neither have received the award.

3 decades ago Dr. Dean Ornish (University of San Francisco) and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn (Cleveland Clinic) showed how to arrest and to reverse coronary artery disease (the killer number one in western countries). They proofed it with medical imaging (coronary angiography). Many landmark studies followed, and up to now thousands of doctors and cardiologists try (but struggle) to spread the knowledge... because no one cares. Apple is the next in line not to care. Instead, Apple promotes fancy stuff that does not have the power to arrest, let alone reverse, coronary artery disease. Disheartening!!
Since when has Apple said a healthy diet is not a part of getting healthy? There are plenty of opportunities for healthy eating available, and Apple generally only provide advances in areas that they can impact through technology. In fact they speak about healthy food on their health page. Plus the Ornish diet, whilst helpful in reducing coronary disease, needs supplements to be truly healthy. It doesn’t supply all of the nutrients the body needs to stay healthy.


Can people really not exercise without the assistance of Apple and/or a reward! People would be a lot healthier if they spent far less time looking at their electronic devises and git in with life
Well, I generally do 45 mins or so using Fitness Plus (which is super inspiring for me), and I do it every day. But it encouraged me to go over 60 mins the first time in quite a while. Is that a bad thing?
