Skiiers and snowboard rejoice!

Apple has announced that starting TODAY, skiers and snowboarders can now use Apple Watch Series 3 to track their activities.

 

Apple Watch apps Snoww, Slopes, Snocru, and Ski Tracks have each been updated to take advantage of custom workout APIs released in watchOS 4.2 that enable tracking of the following specialized snowy metrics:
Total vertical descent and horizontal distance
Number of runs
Average and maximum speeds
Total time spent
Calories burned

 

The ski and snowboard tracking is limited to Apple Watch Series 3 models, which are the only ones with a built-in altimeter to track elevation.

 

God speed good skibum sirs!
