Adjust the usefulness of move goals
The activity rings really motivate you to move more. On days when you go to the gym, you can set a higher goal than on days when you don't exercise. On these days, you'll still set a goal that you won't achieve by just relaxing on your couch. For example, you can take the stairs more often and still get your daily amount of exercise.
Not only completing the rings is motivational. You can also earn medals for moving. For example, you get medals when you break personal records or when you complete a ring several times. These medals can be found in the digital prize cabinet in the Activity app on your iPhone. You obviously want a trophy cabinet that is overflowing with medals. In order to achieve this, you exercise more and more.
Every Monday morning, you'll receive a weekly overview of your activity from the past week. Based on your activity in the past week, the Apple Watch proposes a new move goal. You can easily set this up. Did you exercise a lot in the previous week? The Apple Watch will propose a higher movement target. This challenges you to go the extra mile.
