Apple has announced watchOS 11 during its WWDC 2024 keynote presentation  (you can follow all the announcements as they happen at our WWDC 2024 live blog), and there’s lots to dive into, including improved features from watchOS 10, such as a more intelligent widget stack with live activities, and brand-new ones, such as the Training Load feature and the new Vitals app. 

watchOS 11 arrives with a raft of new features, including a new Training Load score. By using metrics such as your resting and average heart rates, along with stats like age and weight, Apple’s algorithm generates an ever-changing Training Load score, which can help athletes who use the best Apple Watches for activity tracking to calculate how much they’ve been training over a given period of time. 

If you’ve been training too hard, Apple will be able to let you know, while also flagging new metrics such as “weekly running distance” to ensure you remain on track to hit your goals (or understand when you need to take a break).

Apple is also debuting a new Vitals app, which is designed to help you understand how well your body responds to and recovers from stress. Developed with data from Apple’s Heart & Movement study, Apple will look at heart rate, respiratory rate, sleep, and other metrics, and compare them to your average range. If multiple metrics are flagged as unusual, your Apple Watch will let you know. Your Health app will also prompt you to review aspects of your life, such as your sleep schedule, exercise levels and alcohol consumption.
