Cyclists get ready - the Apple watchOS 8 updates promise some big changes to the cycling software, making for a better experience. Up until now, the tracking features for cycling have been pretty limited, with no ride detection or auto-pause (and who has time to manually stop their watch at traffic lights?) but all this is due to change.
The coronavirus pandemic saw a ‘bike boom’, as many turned or returned to cycling to avoid public transport and to keep fit during lockdowns. Bikes sold out across the globe and more people than ever discovered the joy of getting around on two wheels. It seems Apple has noticed this trend and followed up with some much-needed updates to their tech.Jane McGuire
