The Apple WatchOS 10 brings many exciting new features for fitness enthusiasts. WWDC 2023’s keynote on Monday introduced the latest Apple Watch software update, WatchOS 10. The update brings improvements to many favorite features of the watch including its fitness capabilities. You’ll be able to track daily movement in a more detailed and seamless manner using the activity app on your Apple Watch as well as the fitness app on your iPhone.
Cyclists will find the update particularly useful because it can detect falls, calorimetry for e-biking, workout reminders, as well the speed, cadence and power zones of their workout. Runners already have access to the power zones feature, which reads your heart rate during a workout. The power meter has the ability to measure your Functional Threshold Power, or the highest level of intensity that a rider could maintain for an hour of cycling.
Using this data, the Apple Watch calculates your personalized Power Zones, which tells you the current zone you’re in and how much time you’ve spent in it. This could be a useful feature for triathletes and cyclists who are training for races and want an effective way to measure and improve their performance. More from WWDC 2023
