Apple has revealed a new ‘Time to Walk’ feature for Apple Watch and Apple Fitness + subscribers.
According to the company, Time To Walk offers “an inspiring new audio walking experience on Apple Watch for Fitness + subscribers” that aims to encourage subscribers to go out and walk more often.
With Time To Walk, notable celebrities like country music star Dolly Parton, NBA player Draymond Green, Canadian musician Shawn Mendes, and Emmy Award-winning actor Uzo Aduba share what Apple calls “defining moments” that they were recorded while walking outdoors or in locations that mean something to them.
New episodes of Time To Walk will appear in Apple’s Workout app on Apple Watch every Monday through the end of April. The episodes will last between 25 and 40 minutes. To use Time to Walk, you must have AirPods or other Bluetooth headphones paired with an Apple Watch, although a Wi-Fi or cellular connection is not required as long as you have downloaded the episode in advance.
At least at first, Time To Walk sounds similar to a standard podcast. That said, the location where the recording was made could make at least some episodes a bit more interesting than they initially appear.
Apple Fitness + launched in mid-December for $ 12.99 per month or $ 99 per year. Apple currently offers a 3-month free trial of Fitness +
The fitness service features nine different categories of workouts, including cycling, treadmill, rowing, HIIT, strength, yoga, dance, Core, and Mindful Cooldown. Each workout includes music and is curated by trainers, similar to competing fitness services from companies like Peleton and Echelon.
