“Three rings: Move, Exercise, Stand. One goal: Close them every day. It’s such a simple and fun way to live a healthier day that you’ll want to do it all the time. That’s the idea behind the Activity app on Apple Watch.” — Apple.

Close Your Rings is a simple, accessible idea:

Visualisation of progress is concrete, measurable and actionable

Smart use of Haptic Reminders to nudge you into performing the habit

The Apple Watch has been a fascinating glimpse into how technology can influence your daily life.
