The Activity Challenge will be displayed on the Apple Watch as a notification in the days leading up to the event, and to earn the International Women's Day award, Apple Watch users will need to do a workout of any kind for at least 20 minutes.

On March 8, show your support for the empowerment of women everywhere. Do any workout for 20 minutes or more to earn this award. Record your time with the Workout app or any app that adds workouts to Health.

Apple Watch owners who earn the award will unlock a dedicated badge in the Fitness app, plus they will get a series of animated stickers that can be used in the Messages and FaceTime apps.

Typically these special badges are a 1 day type event (without needing the multi-day of the standard Month challenge) so what the hell are you doing that your battery is shot for a 20 minute exercise session? ?
I think it’s always the 7 day in a row type that get me, I’ve gotten some of the one day ones but it seems most the time it’s on the one day I forget to charge my watch!

Yea I think I’ve missed all the ones I’ve wanted, usually because one of the days my battery goes dead for awhile so it cuts short all my data.
Yes, it's even more frustrating when the reason is a depleted battery!
Hopefully upgrading this year (at the very least will get a new battery for my Series 6).

Yep, I missed this year's Unity Challenge because I was a handful of kcals short of closing my Move ring on one day when I'd already passed the point of there not being enough days left in the month to get 7 in a row! Frustrating.

Looking forward to adding this one to my collection. I find them motivating, and it's neat to build a digital collection of awards.
