Apple stresses fitness tech

Apple made a big deal of the ability of its Health app and Apple Watch to track your activity and exercise.

Apple's Activity and Workout apps

Apple will include two fitness applications on its Apple Watch: the Activity and Workout apps.

Track how you move

The Activity app can keep tabs on how much you move, exercise, and even stand.

This badge is for you

A health and fitness app wouldn't be one without awarding virtual achievement badges. The Apple Watch doesn't disapoint here, either.
