The same day (September 15) that Apple previewed its new iPads and Apple Watch, it also revealed a new fitness service designed for users of its Apple Watch.
Fitness+ service provides access to 10 different studio workouts that emphasize endurance, flexibility, and strength. Apple says new workouts will be added each week.
The guided workouts will display on an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV-connected screen, and the metrics being measured and tracked by the Apple Watch will be displayed on the screen.
There's also a beginner program that will teach people new to these kinds of workouts how to perform the movements safely.
The cost for Fitness+ is $13 a month or $100 a year and can be shared with with up to five people in a household using family sharing.
People purchasing a new Apple Watch will get three months of Fitness+ for free.
Apple also announced a price plan that bundles its various services. There are three levels of Apple One.
The individual plan is $16 a month and includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage, while the family plan is $21 a month and includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 200GB of iCloud storage. It can be shared by up to six family members.
Meanwhile, the premier plan is $34 a month and includes Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and 2TB of iCloud storage. It can also be shared by up to six family members.
Bundle pricing saves subscribers $7, $10, and $32 a month, respectively.
The new subscription plans will be available later this fall.
