How to use your Apple Watch to create a competition with your friends

The arrival of watchOS 5 has brought many new features to the Apple Watch . Among them we can highlight improvements in health and wellbeing , something in which Apple has always had an impact. And one of these new features is to compete against your friends.

It's a pity that the original Apple Watch has been left out of this update, so users of this device will not be able to make use of this new feature. The new version of watchOS will allow you to make new challenges with your acquaintances to encourage you to exercise .

How to create an activity competition with watchOS 5
First of all, being a new function of watchOS 5, it is necessary to have this beta installed in the Apple Watch . At the moment it is not something that we recommend, since it is a first beta for developers. Also to install watchOS 5 we must have iOS 12 on the iPhone, something that can be done easily . So we would have two betas installed on devices that we use every day and this can cause problems.

If you are encouraged, now or later when the beta is more stable, this is how you can start an activity competition on the Apple Watch:

Once installed watchOS 5 in the Apple Watch we went to the app Activity , the one of the three rings.

Once here we slide to the left and go to the share tab.

We select the person with whom we want to compete, so it is necessary to have friends with Apple Watch.

We slide until we reach the end and click on Compete . It comes inside a golden box.

Now the Apple Watch will ask you to confirm that you want to send the request to your friend .

Once accepted, a new section called Competitions will appear on the Activity sharing tab.

Here we can see how the competition goes with our friends.

These competitions last 7 days. At the moment you do not know very well how the points are given, although you may get a point for each closed ring . The data of the competition can also be seen from the Apple Watch Activity application.

This is a good improvement for Apple Watch users. One of the main missions of the Apple Watch is to help users to be more active . This type of competitions are one more step in this line and will surely help many users.

What do you think of the competitions with friends of the Apple Watch?
