watchOS 7 will include a modified version of Apple’s Activity Rings to measure youngsters’ activities. The change will debut alongside a much-rumored “kids mode” as well as a number of other new features. The kids mode activity rings will encourage children to keep fit while wearing an Apple Watch.
According to another iOS 14 code leak reported by 9to5Mac, An Apple Watch running in kids mode will still offer the Activity Rings as a method of measuring a variety of metrics. In place of the Move ring’s current calorie-based activity system, which might not be appropriate for children, it could measure the time spent on activities through the say, measuring minutes of high-impact activities.
Previous iOS 14 code leaks have indicated that watchOS 7 could allow connecting multiple Apple Watch devices to a single iPhone, allowing a parent to designate an Apple Watch to be used by a child, with limited features.
A parent would also be able to designate trusted contacts for a child, the music the child is allowed to listen to, and other content and usage controls. A “Schooltime” feature would limit the apps and available features at various times of day, such as when the child is in school.
