The Apple Watch Series 3 now tracks skiing and snowboarding activity! Skiers, rejoice! Today Apple announced that Apple Watch Series 3 wearers will have the ability to track detailed information about both snowboarding and skiing runs. Due to an Apple Watch update that combines GPS and altimeter (altitude) measuring, ski apps such as Slopes are now able to quantify performance. Users can record runs, see average and maximum speeds, see vertical descent and horizontal distance, plus other stats, and contribute active calorie measurements directly to the Apple Watch Activity app. Slopes also works for snowboarders and shows you a map of your journey.
The app is free, but users can upgrade to “Season Pass” for $19.99 per year and receive terrain and satellite maps and more.
