Apple Watch users could soon be getting a brand new feature that would be absolutely essential for all their fitness needs.
After scouring through the latest iOS 11 beta code, some assets have ben found that could hint at new features coming to watchOS 4.
The Apple Watch looks set to soon support virtually every workout you can think of, according to Engadget.
Sports such as football, boxing, baseball and fitness activities like core training and pilates look set to benefit from Apple Watch tracking.

Activities like sailing, dancing, bowling, surfing, skiing look set to receive Apple Watch tracking support.

This date has allegedly been received from telecoms companies who will clearly know the launch date in readiness for the huge surge in interest that’s expected.
Although there’s no confirmation of this date, another recent leak, posted on Twitter, suggests the iPhone will be available to buy from around September 20.
Apple usually releases its new devices a week after the launch event so these two dates do appear to match.
We should get official confirmation soon, as Apple usually sends out invites to its big announcements around two weeks before they are made.
