The new year is just a few days away. Have you started thinking about your goals for the new year? One of the most common goals is to lose weight. All the excess food we eat during the holidays makes itself known physically at the end of the year. While there is nothing wrong with having some extra pounds, some people feel better shedding those pounds off. They want to lose weight so badly that they end up not losing weight at all.
While there are many tools out there to help those in need of a little push to lose weight, many people usually give up on the weight loss journey a couple months into the new year. This year, Apple is trying to change that by setting up reminders. If you own an Apple Watch, you might have received a reminder this morning advising you to get in your daily exercise.
The reminders are meant to encourage users to spend more time doing physical activities. Once you are done with the exercise of the day, you receive an achievement badge for positive reinforcement. You can also share the sticker via iMessage to show off you your friends that you worked out that day. If you are an owner of an Apple Watch, you will be receiving notifications every day to remind you to join the challenge to a fitter you.
