Apple Watch - Activity - Step Count

Getting into the Thanksgiving mood, Apple has announced a Thanksgiving Day Challenge for all Apple Watch owners. The challenge requires Apple Watch owners to run or walk at least 5KM on November 24. The company is informing all Apple Watch owners about this challenge through a notification on their smartwatch — a first for the company.

The whole activity/workout session must be recorded on the Apple Watch. If you manage to fulfil this challenge, you will get a special Achievement medal that will show up on the Activity app of your iPhone. Additionally, you will also gain access to a special iMessage sticker that you can send to your friends.

Earn this special achievement on Thanksgiving Day, November 24th when you complete a walk, run or wheelchair workout of at least 5K (3.1 mi) in the Apple Watch Workout app, or any app that records these workouts into the iPhone Health app. You’ll also earn a special Messages app sticker!

Apple has made the challenge available only in the United States since Thanksgiving is primarily celebrated in the US.
