How to Start a Time to Walk Workout
When you’re ready to go for a walk, open the Workout app on your Apple Watch. At the top of the workouts is a Time to Walk session synced to your watch (more on how to sync them below). You can tap the tile to start the workout right away, or if you tap the little icon in the top right corner, you’ll find a list of all the sessions that are currently available – even the ones that haven’t been downloaded to your watch.
Select one of the cards to start that workout right away or tap the I icon to view the length, details and the list of songs you will listen to during the session.
If there is a small cloud icon on the map, it means it is not synced with your watch and you will need a cellular plan on your watch instead (should you use your iPhone ($ 599 at Apple) rear) or to bring your iPhone with you to stream the workout.
During each episode, you will occasionally feel gentle taps on your wrist letting you know that a photo is available that relates to what the speaker is talking about. For example, Shawn Mendes talks about performing with Justin Bieber during his episode, which prompts you to look at a photo of the two celebrities sitting together. Later in the episode he talks about walking on a beach and a photo of him on that beach is shown.
