Apple Watch Ultra gains ski and snowboard workout detection

0 4

Apple’s sporty Watch Ultra just got more training options thanks to the third-party app Slopes. Once installed, the watch will be able to track your skiing or snowboarding training and it can even identify the resort you’re in. However, all these features are limited to paying subscribers.

Slopes even works with the Action button on the Watch Ultra. The key is exclusive to the Watch Ultra, and Slopes is one of the few apps to take advantage of it so far. You can assign the button to start a workout through Slopes with a single tap. Pausing it requires you to press the action button and the side button at the same time. Slopes also works with Siri, so voice commands are on the menu.

In addition, all Apple Watch devices can switch to waterproof mode when starting a Slopes workout to prevent accidental touches on the screen with all that snow around. You can exit the water lock mode by pressing and holding the Digital Crown for a few seconds.
