The next Apple Watch Activity Challenge is set for Veterans Day on Sunday, November 11th, 2018. Apple Watch Activity Challenges increase awareness about fitness features and healthy living while observing holidays and more. In exchanging for completing a workout challenge, participants earn virtual achievements in the Activity app on the iPhone as well as special sticker packs for iMessage and FaceTime.

The fitness challenge for the next Apple Watch Activity Challenge is unchanged from the Veterans Day Activity Challenge last year: complete a single workout with the Apple Watch for at least 11 minutes on November 11th.

Since Veterans Day is a US holiday, the Activity Challenge will be limited to Apple Watch users in America again — although you can tweak your location settings just to complete the achievement if you live outside of the US. Veterans Day was established to honor Americans who have served in the military.

If you already have the Veterans Day achievement, completing the challenge again this year will let you stack up your medals in the Activity app on iPhone. If you’re new to Apple Watch or didn’t complete the achievement last year, this is your chance to start collecting medals too!

Activity Challenges work with Apple’s Workout and any other apps on Apple Watch that track workouts and log the data in the Activity app on the iPhone.

We expect the alert for the upcoming Apple Watch Activity Challenge to start reaching customers next week on November 8th, but you can start planning your Veterans Day activity a little early thanks to a tip from friend of the site Kyle Seth Gray.
