Apple has officially revealed a new feature for Apple Watch users with a Fitness Plus subscription. The feature ‘Time to Walk’ that had been in development for some time, actually serves a podcast-like experience directly via the smartwatch and the synced Apple iPhone. Apple states that the feature would help users to walk more often with an immersive audio experience. The Time to Walk highlights inspirational audio clips and photos from famous personalities of different professions like sports, music, and more.
Apple continues that the Time to Walk episodes will appear immediately in the Workout app on any Apple Watch model. Each episode is approximately 40 minute-long, and new episodes will arrive every Monday till the end of April. Prominently, previous episodes will be available to Apple Watch users only. Once enabled, a ‘Walk’ workout automatically starts, and users can start with their walk according to their comfort and fitness level. Users can also set walk reminders with the Time to Stand feature in Apple Watch.
Users can access the new fitness feature with AirPods or any Bluetooth-enabled headphones. The Apple Fitness Plus is currently available in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the UK, and the US.
