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.
