Get your dancing shoes out for Apple Watch challenge on April 29th

Get ready for a couple of Apple challenges to close out April. The first falls on April 22nd for Earth Day, the second a week later to coincide with International Dance Day.

Earth Day Challenge

Earth Day was first marked back in 1970 in the US. Since then it has spread to nearly 200 countries around the world. The annual event was founded to protest the negative impacts of industrial development. This year, the focus will be on protecting the millions of species on our planet.

Just like in the previous years, completing a 30 minute task on April 22nd will unlock a bunch of eco-friendly animated stickers. Just make sure to record the exercise with the Workout app or another app that adds workouts to Apple Health.

International Dance Day Challenge

Who knew that April 29th was International Dance Day? We certainly didn’t.

For the first time ever Apple is running a challenge to celebrate the day. Some of you may not know that the launch of Apple Fitness+ in December brought with it dancing workouts as a separate category.

To earn the stickers you’ll need to do a Dance workout lasting at least 20 minutes or more on the big day. Once again, don’t forget to record that you have done so with the Workout app.

As reported by 9to5Mac, some of the awards for Earth Day can be seen below . The company is yet to reveal the animated dance stickers.

The April challenges come hot on the heels of the International Women’s Day challenge. This one required users to complete a workout lasting 20 minutes or more on March 8th.

While some of Apple’s challenges are limited to certain countries, the yet-to-be announced Earth Day and International Dance Day challenges should be available globally.
