Late is better than never. Users of the Apple Watch Series 3 will be glad to know that they can now track skiing and snowboarding with their dependable device even though spring has arrived.
Apple lists many third-party apps that make use of the new functionalities in its announcement from today. This comprises Squaw Alpine, Snoww, Slopes, Snocru, and Ski Tracks. The Apple Watch Activity app now allows users to immediately log vertical descent and horizontal distance, number of runs, average and maximum speeds, total time spent, and calories burnt using these applications. And rest assured that your efforts on the slopes will help you close your daily rings.
Alpine sports enthusiasts may now track their activities using the Apple Watch Series 3.
It’s important to note that each of these apps has a unique set of features. They all use the GPS and altimeter on the Apple Watch, as well as the customized workout APIs made available in watchOS 4.2, which is what unites them. Users can launch Slopes and Snow with Siri to keep track of their runs.
According to Jonny Moseley, Olympic gold medalist in the moguls discipline and ambassador for Squaw Alpine Mountain, “having the ability to track the details of runs with the Apple Watch is an incredible asset for everyone, from training athletes to skiers and riders just looking to have fun and stay active.”
When I’m out with my family, the Squaw Alpine app for Apple Watch helps me to not only track exactly where my kids are on the mountain but also to compare our performances, so I can make sure I’m keeping up with my sons and add some fun rivalry to our day.
In Europe, spring is just around the corner. However, there is still time to get in that final ski excursion before the warm weather arrives. Some of the best snow conditions of the ski season can be found in March or April. And tracking how you’re doing on the slopes has just gotten a little bit simpler.
