One of the benefits of having an Apple Watch is being able to count our activity. Information that we can then see on our iPhone and that helps us stay more active. In iOS 16, Apple has made changes to all of this, so we can follow our activity only with the iPhone.
Sports tracking only with iPhone
One of the new features of iOS 16 is the ability to make the monitoring of part of our sports activity only with the iPhone
“The Fitness app can help you track and achieve your fitness goals, even if you don’t have an Apple Watch. Now, using iPhone’s motion sensors, your steps, distance, and Third-party workouts will give you an estimate of your calories to contribute to your daily movement goal.
While until now we could already track steps and distance traveled only with the iPhone and see this data in the Health app, now, thanks to the arrival of the Fitness app, we will be able to do it from more intuitive way. In addition, we will be able to see the movement ring, which will be filled with the calories burned each day and the workouts performed on third-party apps
Thanks to this novelty, we will be able to use only our iPhone to carry out basic sports monitoring. It is true that we need the Apple Watch to save all the data, because the sensors on the wrist can take into account many other variablesbut if we don’t have it, we can continue to rely on the iPhone to stay active.
