Apple is planning a new Apple Watch activity challenge for International Women's Day, which will be celebrated on Wednesday, March 8.

The Activity Challenge will be displayed on the Apple Watch as a notification in the days leading up to the event, and to earn the International Women's Day award, Apple Watch users will need to do a workout of any kind for at least 20 minutes.
On March 8, show your support for the empowerment of women everywhere. Do any workout for 20 minutes or more to earn this award. Record your time with the Workout app or any app that adds workouts to Health.
Apple Watch owners who earn the award will unlock a dedicated badge in the Fitness app, plus they will get a series of animated stickers that can be used in the Messages and FaceTime apps.

I always miss completing these by 1 stand hour or 2 exercise minutes or something silly like that.

Yep, I missed this year's Unity Challenge because I was a handful of kcals short of closing my Move ring on one day when I'd already passed the point of there not being enough days left in the month to get 7 in a row! Frustrating.

Looking forward to adding this one to my collection. I find them motivating, and it's neat to build a digital collection of awards.

Yea I think I’ve missed all the ones I’ve wanted, usually because one of the days my battery goes dead for awhile so it cuts short all my data.

same as 2022, 2021, missing 2020, 2019 in my collection but 2018 was double your move goal, no badge for 2017 or earlier ...

Typically these special badges are a 1 day type event (without needing the multi-day of the standard Month challenge) so what the hell are you doing that your battery is shot for a 20 minute exercise session? 😆

I think it’s always the 7 day in a row type that get me, I’ve gotten some of the one day ones but it seems most the time it’s on the one day I forget to charge my watch!

Berlin even made International Women's Day a public holiday. So most people can't go to work on that day and most stores are not allowed to open.

I started to get these types of badges in 2019 but I've had the Apple Watch since 2017. I love getting the badges and the animated stickers. I missed getting the Yoga badge back in 2020, I believe, and that's a badge that I really wanted to get

Thought I would get this one automatically as my watch registered more than 20 min exercise but got nothing. I guess that is a learning.

Edit: Errr, was a day early. :p

My International Women's Day challenge must have glitched - I've done 2 workouts this morning, BOTH were longer than 20 minutes each and yet the challenge hasn't unlocked for me :
