Apple Fitness Plus new workout program service is set to begin on December 14th. The subscription service is set to cost $9.99 (Approx INR 740/-) per month.
Apple Fitness Plus was announced beginning this year as Apple’s newest effort to continue to bolster its subscription offers, and it will highlight Peloton-style led workouts that can be viewed on an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV while using an Apple Watch for tracking workout metrics as you go.
The service will begin with 10 workout types: High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), strength, yoga, dance, core, cycling, treadmill for both running and walking, rowing, and “mindful cooldown.”
According to the company, “many Fitness Plus workouts need no equipment at all or just a set of dumbbells.” In contrast, the more equipment-based cycling, treadmill, and rowing workouts should be doable with almost any bike, treadmill, or rowing machine that users have.
Like other standard workout services, Apple will give a variety of trainers who will lead users through each workout and, like Peloton, Apple is merely hoping that the cult of character that has sprung up around the trainers for the famous bike service will help its service, too.
The Apple Watch metrics are so essential to Apple Fitness Plus that you’ll be asked to have one of Apple’s smartwatches respectively, an Apple Watch Series 3 or newer to use the service, along with an iPhone to configure and pair it.
You’ll also be capable of viewing the workouts on a larger screen utilizing an iPad or Apple TV, should you own one, but they’re not necessarily like the Apple Watch and iPhone requirements.
Apple is looking to goose the begin of Fitness Plus by giving customers who have purchased an Apple Watch Series 3 (or newer) three free months of Fitness Plus while existing Apple Watch users will be capable of getting a free one-month trial.
Apple Fitness Plus, in enhancement to the standalone subscription, is also available as part of Apple’s top $29.95-per-month Apple One Premier plan, which adds Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, Apple News Plus, and 2TB of iCloud storage that can all be shared by up to six users.
But even the usual Apple Fitness Plus plan (for $9.99 per month) (Approx INR 740/-) includes Apple’s Family Sharing support, meaning that up to six family members can access the subscription for the same $9.99-per-month price.
