The Apple Watch training app allows us to select dozens of different sports when training. Some workouts whose measurements based on our movement, heart rate and a series of specific algorithms, they allow us to control exactly not only the number of calories consumed, but many other specific data specific to each sport such as the number of steps or the pace during a race, the swimming styles we do and the number of lengths, the number of descents if we ski or even the slope at the time of trekking or climbing. Ah whatever very important to correctly select the type of training that we are going to perform.
Soccer, swimming, basketball, cycling … are general sports that we find as soon as we open the "training" application of the Apple Watch, but what happens if you practice another type of sport? Boxing, athletics, paddle sports, water polo or even horseback riding are other examples of sport included in watchOS but few know that they can be selected. If, as we practice any of the latter, we will teach you to select any type of sport within the Apple Watch training application.
