One of the strengths of the Apple Watch, and there are many, is that it motivates all users to do more sports and lead a more active life thanks to the activity challenges and the famous rings. However, its training app did not meet all the requirements that many athletes requested, until now, since with watchOS 9 you can customize all your training. Keep reading that we tell you everything.
One of the most used applications by all users who play sports and who obviously use the Apple Watch to be able to record all their sports activities is I train. Although for the vast majority of users it has everything they need, for those who want to go a step further, it may have fallen a bit short.
The training app has a wide variety of sports that each of the users can easily record, so it is rare that there is someone who cannot monitor their physical activity. In fact, we are surely talking about one of the activity clocks that can offer users the most options. However, something was missing, and that is the possibility of being able to create personalized workouts.
Personalized workouts come to Apple Watch
As we said, something that the Training app lacked was the possibility of creating completely personalized training sessions, within each of the activities that you can register with this device. Well, watchOS 9, the new Apple Watch operating system, finally makes this option available to all users.
In this way, whenever a user is going to do a workout, whatever the modality, they can customize it to the fullest so that it is the Apple Watch itself that guides them. initially you can set a time or calorie goal, but if you want to go further, you can completely customize it, adding a warm-up, different moments of activity and rest, all depending on your needs and your goals, to finally finish with a cool-down. To do this, you just have to follow the following steps.
- Open the app of I train on your Apple Watch.
- Select the activity what you want to do
- Click on the three dots icon that appears at the top right of the screen.
- Click on «Create training«.
- Choose the option «Personalized«.
- Add a warm-up, if desired.
- Add as many activities and breaks as you wantbeing able to set the objective you want depending on the activity you are doing.
- Add a cooldown, if desired.
- Give your workout a name to save it.
With these simple steps you will have already created your personalized training. However, one criticism that must be made of Apple is that it would be very good if users could configure and create these workouts from the iPhone itselfsince the screen of the Apple Watch is reduced in size, while with the iPhone it would be much more comfortable, making the process of creating a workout faster.
