Apple has introduced Fitness+, a workout app that combines videos with Apple Watch data to get users healthy.
Launched during the “Time Flies” event, Apple Fitness+ will allow customers equipped with an Apple Watch and another Apple device with a screen to perform guided workouts. Displaying a workout on an iPhone, iPad, or via the Apple TV, the app will monitor the user’s workout via sensors on the Apple Watch.
Apple’s trainers will provide a series of studio workout videos on a weekly basis, covering a wide variety of workout types, including HIIT, Yoga, and Strength Training.
Data from the Apple Watch will appear on the screen as an overlay, so users will be able to keep track of their progress without needing to look at the Apple Watch. This will include notifications for reaching fitness goals on their rings.
The data from the Apple Watch will be used to ensure the user is keeping to the current workout, such as making sure the user isn’t moving too fast or too slow.
Priced at $9.99 per month, or $79.99 per year, with Family sharing also available. It is also available to use as part of the new Apple One subscription.
