On International Women’s Day, a new activity challenge on Apple Watch

Wednesday 8 March will be celebrated, as every year, International Women’s Day. For this occasion, Apple Watch is planning one new activity challenge. Here’s what it is.

New Activity Challenge on Apple Watch, what is it about?

A few days before the event, you will be able to see the new Activity Challenge notification on your Apple Watch. To get the International Women’s Day award, users will need to make a any type of workout for at least 20 minutes.

Apple Watch owners who win the prize will unlock a badge dedicated in the Fitness app. In addition, they will receive a series of animated stickers usable in the Messages and FaceTime apps.

It is not the first time that Apple encourages its users to do more physical activity. Various challenges have been introduced for Lunar New Year, Black History Month, and Heart Month in February.

Apple Watch will soon be able to monitor blood sugar

Not only attentive to physical activity, but also to health: Apple is working to bring the blood sugar monitoring (no need for punctures and blood draws) on Apple Watch. A project that continues from the time of Steve Jobs – but it seems that finally the Cupertino engineers are neighbors to the result.

The ultimate goal would be to bring this technology to the Apple Watch, officially consecrating it as a fundamental device for health. Millions of people have diabetes – about one in ten people in the United States, for example.


There are currently several devices that make it easier to measure blood sugar. Instead of piercing the skin every day, devices like skin patches Dexcom o Abbott allow you to monitor the progress with your smartphone for several weeks.

Apple however is taking a different approach, using a technology called optical absorption spectroscopy. A sensor analyzes the interstitial fluid (substances that draw from capillaries) that can be absorbed by glucose. The sensor therefore knows how to reflect the glucose concentration and an algorithm analyzes the blood sugar level.
