After months of speculation and rumors, Apple unveiled the Apple Watch today at its special event in Flint Center, Cupertino. The Apple Watch comes with a variety of features, including a new way to interact with the device.

According to rumors, one of the most important purpose of the Watch would be to help you stay healthy and fit, and at today’s keynote, Tim Cook indeed devoted a significant chunk of time to talk about the Apple Watch’s fitness features. He said “Being more active is one of the best things you can do to improve your health. Apple Watch motivates people to be more active.”

The Apple Watch comes with two apps, Fitness and Workout. The Fitness app keeps track of your activity and movement via data obtained by the sensors in the Watch, and the Workout app lets you set goals for workout sessions like cycling and running. The app can measure calories, distance and duration, helping you track the progress towards these goals.
