To complete the Activity Challenge, users must do any workout for 30 minutes or longer on April 22, according to Apple. As usual, the workout can be recorded in the Fitness app or in any app that can send data to the Health app.

"Let's get moving and celebrate the planet," the Activity Challenge will say when it becomes visible to Apple Watch users a few days prior to Earth Day.

Apple Watch users who complete the Activity Challenge will unlock a special badge in the Fitness app, along with a series of animated stickers that can be used in the Messages and FaceTime apps. We are able to preview what the stickers look like below.

Do people really need to be rewarded to get off their arses and exercise….Get a life?
Some people need extra motivation, yes. it's not a black and white thing. like you can't just go up to someone with depression and say, "be happy".

Gamification (merging game with a challenge) is always good to cheer someone or give a twist to start exercising a bit better. Personally I felt like a robot with Amazfit steps counter when on Apple Watch it’s always something doing and a reward of closing the circles is still happy for me. Yeah, I am fat hobbit after HO and Covid - 32 BMI
