Stay Motivated: How to Track Workouts on Your iPhone Without Apple Watch – Digikar

✔️ 2022-08-16 19:21:36 – Paris/France.

Apple’s Fitness app has always needed an Apple Watch to monitor, track, and view your workouts and fitness routines. Your watch records the calories you burn (Move), the duration of your workouts (Exercise), and the number of hours you stand (Stand) as ringtones. However, with the move to iOS 16, your iPhone can now monitor your workouts without needing the watch.

Using its own built-in motion sensors, the iPhone will keep track of your physical activity throughout the day as well as any workouts you do through supported third-party apps. Your phone can then display your calories burned, steps taken, flights of stairs climbed, and total distance walked for the current day, as well as past days, weeks, and months.

While this capability is good news for iPhone users who don’t own an Apple Watch, there are some limitations to recording your workouts, namely the iPhone doesn’t have the sensors to track the training time and rest time, so the only ring it can handle is the Move one.

Apple Fitness+ subscription is also not supported on your iPhone, as you would need an Apple Watch to track your activity.
