Share your Activity and compete with friends with your Apple Watch

You can share your Activity rings with friends and family for motivation. Encourage each other to close all three rings, compete to win the week, or let your trainer track your daily progress.

Start sharing

To share activity, you and your friends both need an Apple Watch. When your friends close their rings, finish workouts, or earn achievements, you get notifications about their progress.

Share an activity on iPhone

Add friends

  1. Open the Fitness app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap the Sharing tab. If asked, tap Get Started. 
  3. Tap the Account icon  then the Add button  and type your friend’s contact information. Or choose friends from the list of suggested contacts. You can add up to 40 friends.
  4. After you choose your friends, tap Send. Wait for your friends to accept the invite. 

You can also invite a friend directly from your Apple Watch: Open the Activity app, swipe to the Sharing screen, scroll down, then tap Invite a Friend.

Accept an invite

When someone invites you to share Activity or compete, a notification appears on your Apple Watch. Tap Accept or Ignore. If you don’t get a notification, you can accept from the Fitness app:

  1. Open the Fitness app on your iPhone, then tap the Sharing tab.
  2. Tap the Account icon  at the top of the screen.
  3. Tap Accept or Ignore.

Take it further with Apple Watch.

See real‑time, personalized metrics onscreen, like your heart rate, the Burn Bar, and all three Activity rings. And experience the freedom of audio‑guided walks, runs, and meditations with just your watch and Bluetooth headphones.

Compete with friends

You can invite friends to compete in a seven-day competition. During the competition, you both earn points by filling your Activity rings. You get a point for every percent that you add to your rings each day, and you can earn up to 600 points a day. That’s a max of 4,200 points for the week.

Whoever has the most points at the end of the competition wins. When the competition is complete, you earn an award.

Compete with a friend on iPhone

Challenge a friend from your Apple Watch

  1. Open the Activity app on your Apple Watch.
  2. Swipe to the Sharing screen, then tap a friend. 
  3. Scroll down, then tap Compete.

Motivate your friends

After you start sharing your activity, you can check on your friends and help motivate them to meet their goals. When you get a notification about a friend’s activity, you can reply with preset smack talk or encouragement. And, when your friend closes all three rings or earns certain achievements, you can challenge them to a competition directly from the notification.

If you don’t get updates about your friend’s activity

As long as your iPhone can connect to the Internet and you’re signed in to iCloud, you can get updates about your friend’s activity each day. If your iPhone can’t connect for multiple days or you sign out of iCloud, you might see missing days.
