The Workout app has been updated with comprehensive overviews, metrics, and exercises, while the Sleep Phases and a new AFib log feature are also new. According to Apple, the new medication app is supposed to make it easier to manage, understand, and track your medications.

On the screen, you can now rotate the Digital Crown during a workout session to switch between different workout views, so you can see data about different types of training. Heart rate zones can be automatically calculated based on your health data or set manually to track exercise intensity. In addition, you can now use custom workouts to create a workout with sports and rest periods, while notifications about speed, strength, heart rate and cadence should help you with your workout.

Fitness+ subscribers without Apple TV can use AirPlay to view workouts and meditation sessions on compatible third-party TVs.

Thanks to the sleep features on the Apple Watch, it was already possible to create schedules for bedtime and relaxation, as well as track your sleep to achieve your goals. In watchOS 9, you should now be able to track your sleep more accurately thanks to sleep stages. With the signals from the accelerometer and heart rate sensor, the watch can determine which stage of sleep you are in: REM sleep, deep sleep or deep sleep. You should then be able to see all the data about the sleep phases in the Sleep app. Detailed information about your sleep duration and metrics like heart rate and respiratory rate can be found in graphs in the Health app on your iPhone.
