The next Apple Watch Activity Challenge will kick off March 8th, which is International Women’s Day. Early details of the event were shared on Twitter by Kyle Seth Gray, who has been known to reliably leak early details of Apple Watch Activity Challenges before they’re officially announced.
On March 8, celebrate women all over the world and earn this award by doing a walk, run, or wheelchair workout of a mile (1.6K) or more. Record your distance in the Workout app or any app that adds workouts to Health. #CloseYourRings #AppleWatch pic.twitter.com/zsVAITnre8

The rules for the upcoming Apple Watch Activity Challenge simply require users to complete a 1 mile walk, run, or wheelchair workout on March 8th. Upon completion, a special Activity achievement will be unlocked in the Activity app on the iPhone. The challenge will be available to Apple Watch customers globally.
Apple Watch users will be officially notified about the challenge on their devices sometime before the 8th. This will mark the second annual Women’s Day Activity Challenge.
Apple Watch Activity Challenges occur periodically, and allow users to complete the challenges to collect unique virtual badges which can be viewed from the Achievements tab of the Activity app on their iPhone. Unique virtual stickers are also unlocked for use in the Messages and FaceTime app on iOS devices.
