Skiing and snowboarding: Apple Watch Series 3 now also monitors snow sports activities

During the Apple Watch Series 3 launch event in September 2017, Apple briefly commented on the possibility of using apps to monitor snow sports, such as skiing and snowboarding. It took time, but the appeal finally arrived.

As of this Wednesday (28/2), as Apple reported, several applications can already take advantage of the latest hardware of the watch, such as GPS and altimeter, in addition to the latest APIs released by Ma on watchOS 4. According to Apple, apps can now track metrics like total vertical descent and horizontal distance, number of descents, total activity time and calories burned.

Slopes, according to her, can automatically detect when the user is idle so there is no need to restart the activity. The update of the snoww allows owners of the watches to find close friends, in addition to allowing use only with the voice, thanks to the integration with SiriKit. Squaw Valley is now facing fans at ski resorts in Lake Tahoe, California. Snow sports enthusiasts can buy tickets for lifts (cable cars) and follow the performance of your friends.

The updates are already available on the App Store and require, of course, an Apple Watch Series 3 (be it the GPS model or the GPS + Cellular).
