    You can now use Apple Watch Series 3 to track your skiing and snowboarding activity 1.JPG

    Any Apple Watch Series 3 owners inspired by the Winter Olympics to take to the slopes and start snowboarding or skiing will be happy to hear today’s news from Apple that, starting from today, you can now use Apple Watch Series 3 to track your activities. You’ll have to update the applicable apps via the App Store first, though.

    The apps in question include, snoww, Slopes, Squaw Alpine, Snocru, and Ski Tracks. Here are some of the metrics that they are now able to track on the slopes:
    • Total vertical descent and horizontal distance
    • Number of runs
    • Average and maximum speeds
    • Total time spent
    • Calories burned
    Apps are able to auto pause and resume, and you will get credit towards your Activity rings. Your workout information from your runs will also be recorded on the Health app on iPhone, once you authorise it to do so. You can even use Siri to start Slopes and snoww with just your voice.
