Apple has announced that now the skiers and snowboarders can also track their activities using the Apple Watch Series 3. This new ability is getting added to the Watch Series 3 via app updates. The app updates will be for snoww, Slopes, Squaw Alpine, Snocru and Ski Tracks.
Apple has made it clear that users can now record runs, see vertical descent and other stats and contribute active calorie measurements directly to the Apple Watch Activity app. Also, the Watch users can track new metrics and find their friends on the mountain with a glance at the wrist.
These specialized metrics is measured with the help of built-in GPS and altimeter in Apple Watch Series 3. Users can, of course, make use of Siri to start Slopes and snoww to track their runs using just the voice.
Eddy Healey, the developer of snoww, says,
“We’re thrilled with the updates Apple Watch Series 3 and watchOS 4.2 allow us to make. We designed snoww thinking about quick interactions and glances while out on the mountain, so these updates have helped us make it easy to record accurate, relevant metrics as well as create a fun and social experience for our users.”
The updated apps that will let you track skiing and snowboarding are now available on the App Store and it should be noted that they require watchOS 4.2 to run.
