Apple cancels Apple Watch health challenge due to coronavirus

New activity challenge on Apple Watch for employees

Not long ago we told you that Apple planned to launch a February health challenge for Apple Watch although only for employees. Nevertheless the American company has decided to cancel the challenge, at least suspend it for now, due to the coronavirus.

It seems that the disease started in Wuhan and that it represents a global health crisis if it is affecting Apple in any way. The Apple Store stores have closed for a few days, although it seems that they will reopen soon, and now the cancellation of the challenge to close the rings of the Apple Watch is added.

The challenge of the Apple Watch only for employees is paralyzed for the moment by a health crisis

Due to the health crisis caused by the coronavirus that started in the Asian country, Apple decided to close all stores and corporate centers to prevent the spread of contagion. Has taken the same decision on the challenge of closing the three rings of the Apple Watch.

In Heart Month, February, Apple wanted its employees to be in tip-top shape with a challenge consisting of closing the three rings of the Apple Watch every day during that month. In this way he would get several awards.

In a message sent to Apple employees you can read: “The Close Your Rings Challenge is one of those rare opportunities to bring together team members and colleagues from around the world for a common purpose of closing our rings, earning some points, and having fun. With several of our offices and stores closed in China at the moment and as some of our team members are unable to participate, we have decided to postpone the Close Your Rings Challenge 2020. NOur challenge will be removed from the Challenges app.

We will update everyone as soon as we have a new date in which we can all focus together on closing our rings! "

So seeing what we've seen, let's hope we don't have to wait too long for everything to return to normal. It would be a good sign, not only because of the February challenge, but also because the health emergency will be less or almost non-existent. We are looking forward to it.
