How to set up and track Apple Watch wheelchair workouts

Published: November 4, 2016

apple-watch-wheelchair-workoutsPeople in wheelchairs no longer get treated like second-class citizens when it comes to Apple Watch’s fitness-tracking features. With the recent watchOS 3.0 update, which brings lots of big changes to the fitness-oriented wearable, Apple Watch wheelchair workouts can be tracked after a quick and easy setup.

Part of Apple’s wide-ranging accessibility initiative, these new Apple Watch features make it possible to track wheelchair exercise just like you would a typical run.

Apple Watch’s wheelchair mode puts people with physical disabilities on a level playing field with other athletes — and it’s super-easy to use.

Apple will also start tracking distance, speed and calories burned during wheelchair use, just as it does for walking or running.
