“Apple Watch owners can get a special Activity Challenge for Thanksgiving, this November 24th,” Benjamin Mayo reports for 9to5Mac. “Apple Watch owners are waking up to notifications on their wrist announcing a special achievement in the Activity app, the first time Apple has done this.”

To receive the reward, Apple Watch users must complete a run, walk or wheelchair 5K (3.11 miles) on November 24th using Apple’s Workout app or any third-party app that integrates workouts with HealthKit (such as Nike+ Run Club].

“If users do this, they will receive a unique Achievement medal in their iPhone Activity app and a special iMessage sticker to send to their friends,” Mayo reports. “This kind of contextual achievement is brand new to watchOS; although the facility to do Activity Challenges has existed in watchOS for a while, this is the first time the feature has been used.”
