Apple Fitness+: Company launches new online fitness service that integrates with Apple Watch

Apple has launched Fitness+, an online workout service that is built around its Apple Watch.

The company had revealed the platform during an event earlier this year, but it will now be available from next week.

It will include a range of different workouts – 10 in all, from high intensity interval training to “mindful cooldown” – all of which can be streamed onto iPhones or Apple TVs.

Fitness+ will be available from Monday, 14 December, the company said. It costs £9.99 per month or £79.99 per year, and can be bundled with the company’s Apple One premier plan as well as shared between different people who have a family membership.

It will initially be available in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the UK and the US. It also needs an Apple Watch Series 3 or later, as well as an iPhone, iPad or Apple TV.

“Being more active is one of the most important things we can do for our health, but we know choosing to work out can often be a challenge whether you’re very active or just getting started,” said Jay Blahnik, Apple’s senior director of Fitness Technologies.

“We’re excited for Apple Fitness+ to bring together the metrics from Apple Watch, great music, and a diverse and inspiring trainer team — in a uniquely simple, easy-to-access way across Apple devices — to encourage our users to get fit and stay healthy.”
