work out with a watch
Get fit with the help of Apple Watch Series 2
1 Start a workout
GPS and waterproofing make Apple Watch Series 2 a truly useful fitness device. The Workout app is at the centre of this. As well as running, walking and swimming, it tracks indoor workouts, such as on an exercise bike.
2 Run along
During a run, you can see distance, your heart rate, calories, and how far through your workout you are. You can divide your run into segments. GPS accurately tracks you, and you can review your route on a map.
3 Start a swim
Watch Series 2’s swim tracking can tell what kind of stroke you’re doing, and it also detects your change of direction at the end of the pool – once you’ve told it the pool length. It can track open-water swimming via GPS.
4 View your activity
Workout data is fed into the Activity app, so you can also view details on your iPhone. For an outdoor run, say, those details include a route map, calorie info, heart rate, pace, distance, and any segments you recorded.
