Apple Watch will soon track more workouts and forms of exercise
Found inside the latest beta of iOS 11 is some code and images hinting that the Apple Watch will soon support many more different forms of exercise and workouts. The images include new icons for the Apple Watch Exercises app that are not seen on current versions of the timepiece. Some of these exercises will only be tracked by the next generation of the smartwatch, which is Series 3. Some other new exercises will apparently be coming to existing versions of the Apple Watch with the WatchOS 4 update. These specific exercises can be found in the WatchOS 4 beta under the "other" category.

Some of the new exercises that the next Apple Watch will track include American football, baseball, bowling, boxing, dancing, skiing, bowling, core training, step training, and pilates. Most of these are not typically monitored by wearable fitness trackers or smartwatches. The theory is that the Apple Watch Series 3 will be equipped with new sensors that will allow the device to track and monitor some of the newly added workouts. Speaking of which, click on the slideshow to see some of the code and icons pertaining to these new exercises.

The Apple Watch Series 3 is expected to be unveiled next month alongside the 2017 Apple iPhone line up. The latest rumor has that taking place on September 12th.
