You can now use Apple Watch Series 3 to track your skiing and snowboarding activity 1.JPG

Any Apple Watch Series 3 owners inspired by the Winter Olympics to take to the slopes and start snowboarding or skiing will be happy to hear today’s news from Apple that, starting from today, you can now use Apple Watch Series 3 to track your activities. You’ll have to update the applicable apps via the App Store first, though.

The apps in question include, snow, Slopes, Squaw Alpine, Snocru, and Ski Tracks. Here are some of the metrics that they are now able to track on the slopes:
  • Total vertical descent and horizontal distance
  • Number of runs
  • Average and maximum speeds
  • Total time spent
  • Calories burned
Apps are able to auto pause and resume, and you will get credit towards your Activity rings. Your workout information from your runs will also be recorded on the Health app on iPhone, once you authorise it to do so. You can even use Siri to start Slopes and snoww with just your voice.
“Having the ability to track the details of runs with Apple Watch is an incredible asset for everyone from training athletes to skiers and riders just looking to have fun and stay active,” said Jonny Moseley, Olympic Moguls Gold Medalist and Squaw Alpine Mountain Ambassador. “The Squaw Alpine app for Apple Watch helps me when I’m out with my family to not only track exactly where my kids are on the mountain, but also compare our performance, so I can make sure I’m keeping up with my sons and add some fun competition to our day.”

“We’re thrilled with the updates Apple Watch Series 3 and watchOS 4.2 allow us to make” said Eddy Healey, developer of snoww. “We designed snoww thinking about quick interactions and glances while out on the mountain, so these updates have helped us make it easy to record accurate, relevant metrics as well as create a fun and social experience for our users.”
