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 the following days. Unlike some challenges which are reserved for certain countries, this one will be available globally.

The task is unchanged from last year. To earn the badge Apple Watch wearers 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 has landed two years in a row.
The Cupertino outfit has already released a bunch of challenges in 2022. The lockdown conditions are slowly lifting which means we are increasingly moving and exercising. And anything that gets us even more active is a plus so the latest challenge should help.
This International Women’s Day comes hot on the heels of three challenges that landed in February. These include the Heart Month Challenge on Valentines Day, February 14th – in addition to one for Black History Month and a Unity Challenge badge.
