Description Can I earn points for burning calories? Fitness devices calculate calorie burn differently. We are therefore unable to calculate points for Vitality-linked devices. You will still be able to get Vitality points for tracking your daily steps, heart-rate and speed. View the Vitality points you can earn with Vitality-linked devices.
Can I earn Vitality points for workouts recorded on the Nike+ Run Club app on my Apple Watch? The integration with Apple Health App only shares physical activity information which has been recorded on the Activity App on the Apple Watch. The integration is currently unable to share workout information recorded on the Nike+ Run Club app and therefore no Vitality points can be earned. We are currently working on enhancing the platform so that Nike+ Run Club app workouts recorded on an Apple Watch can be shared with Vitality. When this is done, we will communicate it to members via the Discovery website, social media channels and the monthly Vitality newsletters.
Can I use Apple Watch to track swimming? Apple has advised that Apple Watch 1 has a water resistance rating of IPX7 under IEC standard 60529 meaning that it is splash and water resistant but not waterproof. This means that you can use your Apple Watch 1 during exercise, in the rain, and while washing your hands. However, submerging your Apple Watch is not recommended and doing so is likely to void the warranty. Therefore, please do not swim with your Apple Watch. The leather bands available for your Apple Watch are not water resistant. The full standard agreement can be found at the bottom of the Apple Watch page on the Apple website.
Does Apple Watch work with any smartphone device? To use the Apple Watch, you need an iPhone 5s or later model.
