For Lunar New Year, Apple Watch owners can earn an award after doing any workout for at least 20 minutes. The challenge will need to be completed between between January 22 and February 5, and it will be available worldwide even though Lunar New Year is primarily celebrated in select countries. The 2023 Lunar New Year begins on Sunday, January 22 and lasts for 15 days.

The designs for some of these awards are one of the more underrated features of the watch. They really pop.
