Apple Fitness+ now available to everyone, even without Apple Watch

Apple’s Fitness+ service is undergoing major changes with the release of iPhone 14 and iOS 16.

Apple is taking advantage of the formalization of the iPhone 14 and its Apple Watch Series 8 to update its Fitness+ service. This one, launched in the United States in 2020, has been available in France since 2021. But if you had to have an Apple Watch to be able to take advantage of it, the apple brand has just broken down this barrier.

Indeed, from September 12, Apple’s sports training service can be used directly from an iPhone, even if you do not have an Apple Watch. But beware, the service is still chargeable (9.99 euros per month or 79.99 euros per year).

For this price, you can access a catalog of sports training (more than 3,000 sports and meditation exercises), led by real coaches. It is then possible to follow these workouts on an iPhone, an iPad or even an Apple TV. In the absence of a watch, the Fitness+ application in iOS 16 will estimate the calories burned in real time.

Apple will also offer new podcasts “Place à la marche” to encourage subscribers to walk, with stories of personalities deemed interesting such as Prince William or Leslie Jordan. New pilates exercises will also see the light of day as stated in the press release.

Note that a slew of products was presented during the keynote: from the Apple Watch SE 2 to the Apple Watch Series 8 and Watch Ultra, including the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max and the iPhone 14 and 14+.
