A new Activity Challenge honoring International Women’s Day will take place on March 8th. Achievements include animated stickers that you will be able to share over iMessage.
International Women’s Day has been celebrated on March 8 every year since the early 1900s. It commemorates the movement for women’s rights. This is a global day for celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender equality.
Users should start to see the yet-to-be announced challenge on their Watches in early March. Unlike some challenges which are reserved for certain countries, this one will be available globally.

As first reported on 9to5Mac, to earn the badge users will need to complete a workout lasting 20 minutes or more on the big day. This might be a 20+ minute yoga session, a 20+ minute cycling activity or anything else really. You just need to make sure the activity is logged in the Workout app or any other app that syncs workouts to the Apple Health app.
You’re probably wondering about rewards. Successfully completing the task on March 8th will unlock a bunch of colorful animated Move ring-themed stickers. Internationally, purple is a color for symbolizing women and this color dominates the theme.
Apple has issued a series of challenges over the years but the one for International Women’s Day has not landed every single year. It is good to see that it is back this year.
The Cupertino outfit has already released a bunch of challenges in 2021. The lockdown conditions mean many of us have not been moving and exercising as much as we should. Anything that gets us more active is a plus so the latest challenge should help.
This International Women’s Day comes hot on the heels of the American Heart Month challenge, a federally designated event to educate on the importance of cardiovascular health. That one required users to put in sixty minutes of exercise on February 14th.
