As spotted by Kyle Seth Gray on Twitter and shared with 9to5Mac, Apple will reward users with exclusive badges in the Activity app, as well as animated stickers for use in Messages and FaceTime. The achievement can be reached by recording any workout of 30 minutes or longer.

“Make August 8 an active day. Earn this award by recording any workout of 30 minutes or more on National Fitness Day”

China has celebrated National Fitness Day every year since the 2008 Beijing Olympics. This marks the second year in a row in which Apple has gotten involved with an Apple Watch Activity Challenge. This is a rare instance where Activity Challenges are geo-locked.

Apple has used Apple Watch Activity Challenges to celebrate holidays and events around the world. Most recently, an Activity Challenge was held for the International Day of Yoga last month.
