Apple Adds ‘Time to Walk’ To Its Apple Fitness+ Subscription Service
After initially appearing in various beta updates, Apple Fitness today gained a new Time to Walk feature, announced via press release.
The new feature will give Apple Fitness+ users access to guided walks that will include stories from various celebrities. There are four ready today, while new stories will be added every Monday.
All people need is an Apple Fitness+ or Apple One subscription, an Apple Watch, and a pair of headphones. New walks will be downloaded to Apple Watches automatically, too.
The walks will feature images, music, and voice to help build a compelling story.
Each Time to Walk episode is shaped by the guest’s personal, life-shaping moments and includes lessons learned, meaningful memories, thoughts on purpose and gratitude, moments of levity, and other thought-provoking topics, recorded while walking outside or in locations that are meaningful to them. The narrative comes to life through photos that appear on Apple Watch, perfectly timed to amplify a corresponding moment the guest shares. Following the guest’s stories, the experience extends with the guest introducing a short playlist of songs that has given them motivation and inspiration, so the listener can continue their walk to a soundtrack intimately connected to each guest.
The first four celebrities to tell their story are country music star Dolly Parton, NBA player Draymond Green, musician Shawn Mendes, and Emmy Award winner Uzo Aduba.
Walks range from 25 minutes to 40 minutes with walkers able to go at their own pace. They can walk anywhere and listen to the stories as they go.
Apple Fitness+ is available for $9.99 (US) per month or $79.99 (US) per year and is also part of the Apple One subscription, too.
