For people who like to close their activity rings on the Apple Watch, especially when specific challenges come, Apple has a new one to celebrate one of the oldest national parks in the United States.
Grand Canyon National Park is celebrating its centenary this year. To help celebrate the 100th Anniversary's natural wonder, Apple presents a new Apple Watch Challenge on August 25. It was discovered by Kyle Seth Gray on Twitter recently (via 9to5Mac ).
25. August, earn an award inspired by the Grand Canyon National Park 100th Anniversary. Take a walk, walk, walk or work out in a wheelchair at least three miles (4.8 km) – the distance from the South Kaibab Trail to Cedar Ridge and back. #AppleWatch #CloseYourRings pic.twitter.com/JygWIXcnzP

To reach the goal, you need to walk, run, wheelchair, walk or exercise at least three miles (4.8 km) on August 25. As noted by Gray, this is the same distance you would want to go if you walked from the South Kaibab Trail to Cedar Ridge and back.
This is one of the first activity challenges for the Apple Watch that actually requires a specific distance to reach and a specific workout. In most cases, the challenges are time-based in general.
How serious are you in collecting these badges and completing the Apple Watch Activity Challenges? Do you think you're going to go for this as well?
