Apple promised that its new Fitness+ service would launch before the end of the year, and it appears that the feature will be added to iOS 14.3 and watchOS 7.2.

As noted on the MacRumors forums, the current watchOS 7.2 beta that was released this morning has a splash screen with what's new, and Apple Fitness+ is listed as one of the features.

The first iOS 14.3 beta also had an unfinished mention of Apple Fitness+ in the Analytics portion of the Privacy settings, but it has since been removed.

Given that we're expecting iOS 14.3 and watchOS 7.2 to come out right around the beginning of December, it matches up with Apple's late 2020 launch timeline for Fitness+.

Apple first announced Fitness+ alongside the Apple Watch Series 6. Priced at $9.99 per month and included in the highest tier Apple One bundle, Fitness+ is designed to help Apple Watch owners keep fit through a series of guided workouts.

Workouts sync to the Apple TV so you can see your progress on the screen, and there are multiple workout categories to choose from. Check out our Fitness+ guide for more on Apple's upcoming service.

Wondering if it’s possible to let it show up and subscribe to it in Germany, by changing the language setting to a supported country (US or UK).
The News app does appear by changing the language setting, but not sure if you can subscribe to news+, if you live outside OS.

About time! Been waiting for Fitness+.

Gave up running outside (had an aggressive Karen screech an SUV in front of me and flip me off for wearing a mask, kinda freaked me out). Gave up the gym membership because people weren't wearing masks on the treadmill. Been using Nintendo Switch "Ring Fit Adventure" and "Fitness Boxing" at home in the interim.

This will be great! Can't arrive soon enough :)

Gave up running outside? The horror. I can’t imagine doing that. Consider getting a commercial grade treadmill. :)

I'm definitely tempted to buy a treadmill! I miss running. Lots of trails in Arizona too, but they seem to be pretty crowded until you out-distance them a few miles down the trail or so. I'm not in running condition to outdistance right now haha! :D

Did Apple promise that Fitness+ would be released before the end of the year or did they just state that it would be released before the end of the year?

First the Breathe app, now “sharing your lorem ipsum”. Apple’s getting a bit esoteric.
