Apple’s popular wearable, the Apple Watch, has introduced its Track Detection feature in France and the Netherlands, according to the French tech blog WatchGeneration. This feature was first launched in the United States last year and has since rolled out to Canada, Australia, Italy, and the United Kingdom. With the recent addition of France and the Netherlands, the Apple Watch continues to expand its reach and utility to fitness enthusiasts worldwide.
The Track Detection feature of the Apple Watch utilizes the Apple Maps database and GPS to automatically detect when users step onto an outdoor running track. Once detected, the user can select which lane they are running in, enabling the watch to provide more accurate distance measurements and a precise route map. Additionally, the feature offers lap alerts that show distance, time, and pace as the user completes each lap.
Apple Watch’s Track Detection feature is available on watchOS 9.2 and later. This means that it is compatible with the Apple Watch Series 4 and newer. It is a great tool for runners who want to better track their performance while exercising on an outdoor track.
Apple’s regional feature support page has not yet been updated to reflect the recent additions of France and the Netherlands. However, it is expected that Apple will update the page soon.
