Apple’s got a new Fitness+ feature coming up for people who like long walks.
Called Time to Walk, the feature will go live on the Apple Watch, allowing users to choose an audio story to accompany them on a walk.
The feature hasn’t been officially announced, but the indications that it’s coming are pretty strong. MacRumors noticed a mention of it in the release notes for the latest watchOS 7.3 beta, and Twitter user Othmane noticed it in a new Apple Fitness+ promo video (the video has since been replaced with a version that doesn’t mention the new feature).

Apple’s release note says Time to Walk is “an audio experience in the Workout app where guests share inspiring stories as you walk.”
Judging by Othmane’s screenshot, Time to Walk will kick off with a 30-minute story by singer Shawn Mendes. Othmane says other options include stories from singer Dolly Parton, actress Uzo Aduba, and basketball player Draymond Green.
Time to Walk is likely to show up soon, as the watchOS 7.3 beta is in its final, release candidate stage.
Apple Fitness+ costs $9.99 per month or $79.99 for the whole year, and requires an Apple Watch. It offers guided workout videos for workouts such as strength training, treadmill running, yoga, dance and indoor cycling.
