To track fitness activities without using the Apple Watch, Apple has upgraded the iPhone’s Fitness app with iOS 16. For those who are unaware, owners of Apple iPhones could only track their fitness activities when they synced their devices with an Apple Watch prior to the iOS 16 release.
However, the business has improved the Fitness app with the option to track fitness activities independently with the iOS 16 release. What all users can accomplish with the redesigned Fitness app for the iPhone is the question at hand. What it does, how to set it up, and more. Let’s clarify:
What’s new with iPhone’s Fitness app
A new set of capabilities have been added to Apple’s redesigned Fitness app for the iPhone. Except for a few minor adjustments, there hasn’t been much change in the user interface. However, its functionality is where the biggest distinction lies. As previously reported, the app can now track and record a variety of fitness activities without the Apple Watch. That’s basically it. Additionally, the iOS 16 upgrade includes the new app pre-installed. Therefore, users don’t need to manually update it to obtain this new feature.
What all the iPhone can record without the Fitness app
Using the iPhone’s integrated motion sensors, the new Fitness app can now track a variety of activities, including workouts and other physical activity. Along with activities recorded by other fitness applications, the capability is compatible with the built-in Fitness app. The phone may display distance travelled, calories burned, steps taken and steps climbed.
Sole when items are on more may it record, which is the only restriction in this case. What we’re trying to say is that it can’t tell you how long you’ve been standing up or sitting down, nor can it tell you how long you’ve been exercising. We anticipated Apple to include that with the fitness app.
How to setup the Fitness app on iPhone
You’ll first need an iPhone with the iOS 16 operating system. Now launch the fitness app on your phone or tablet. New users must input a few facts, like their date of birth, gender, height, weight, etc.
Tap Done and Continue after you’ve finished entering the information. After that, you can select between Lightly, Moderately, or Highly active for each day. Then, after setting the calorie target, tap the “Set Goal” button.
Enable Notifications for the app as well to receive notifications when important information is available.
The iPhone will immediately begin tracking the activity as soon as everything is finished. To view the current status directly within the app, open it.
