Hey all-

Sorry if this isn't the right forum, but in regards to the Activity app on the watch, I was surprised there was no Thanksgiving 2018 challenge, nor new "Ring in the New Year" one, etc. There was just an article on the front page (that I suddenly can't find) about Apple employees getting some special band for completing a Close-All-Your-Rings in a month challenge; that's the only new challenge I've heard of in awhile. Anyone know what gives about why they don't seem to be making special challenges lately?

Right, the monthly challenges are still there (I have to burn 39k calories, sigh); I was referring to the special ones that have their own distinct badges.

I think Apple has been holding off due to some of the complications they've been having with the challenge badges either being delayed a few days, or past badges disappearing completely. The problem seems to be somewhat fixed after a couple of days ago, so I am anticipating a badge in February, maybe a Valentines Day one?

Other than the problems with some not showing up and delays on others, no idea why they stopped.
