Along with the Apple Watch, in the 2020 keynote those from Cupertino have presented Apple Fitness +, a virtual training platform by subscription. We tell you what it consists of, its price and availability.
The market is increasingly saturated with sports watches, so offering different functionalities that are useful for exercising is vitally important to stand out from the competition.
This is precisely what Apple intends with Apple Fitness +, a new subscription virtual training platform that will be incorporated into the Apple Watch. What this service does is intelligently integrate watch data so that users can see their vital signs while following personalized workouts through the screen of their iPhone, iPad or Apple TV.
In this way, it is no longer necessary to go to the gym to motivate yourself when training. With Apple Fitness + you can attend virtual classes taught by top-level coaches, accompanied by motivating music from well-known Apple Music artists. Thanks to this, exercising anywhere will be much more fun and enjoyable.
“With a wide variety of workouts suitable for all levels, taught by an incredible group of trainers, in addition to a program designed for beginners and passionate about the sport and the flexibility to train from anywhere, everyone will find something they like” explains Jay Blahnik, Apple’s senior director of Fitness for Health Technologies.
Fitness + initially will offer workouts for ten different types of sports, such as cycling, yoga, HIIT, treadmill or strength, among other disciplines. New classes will be added every week.
The platform takes previous trainings into account to intelligently suggest new options, making sure they match user preferences. In addition, it will also be possible to filter the available classes based on sports discipline, coach, duration or music.
Apple Fitness +: price and availability
Apple’s new fitness platform will initially arrive in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and the United States later this year. The subscription price will be $ 9.99 per month or $ 79.99 per year. For the moment, the Cupertino company has not confirmed when it will arrive in Spain.
