Apple to start off 2018 with a New Year’s Apple Watch Activity Challenge

“For the second year in a row, Apple will launch an Apple Watch Activity Challenge to celebrate the New Year,” Benjamin Mayo reports for 9to5Mac. “Set to start showing up from the 28th December, the new activity challenge promotes fitness by asking users to complete their Activity rings (Move, Exercise, and Stand) for seven consecutive days in January 2018.”
