You Can Take Shawn Mendes or Dolly Parton on Your Walk With New Apple Fitness+ Feature

You can take a leisurely stroll while Shawn Mendes and Dolly Parton take you down a memory lane of their most meaningful moments with the latest Apple Fitness+ feature Time to Walk.

The new audio walking experience allows Apple Watch for Fitness+ subscribers to feel like they’re walking (virtually) alongside their favorite stars, who share their most personal moments in episodes they narrated from relevant locations or while walking outdoors. Mendes, Parton, NBA player Draymond Green and Emmy-winning actress Uzo Aduba guest host the first four episodes, which were released Monday (Jan. 25).

Episodes ranging from 25 to 40 minutes will appear on the Workout App every Monday until the end of April. The weekly episodes will also flash photos on the Apple Watch that are synced with the guest host’s storytelling and will include short playlists of their motivational and inspirational songs.

“I’ve loved walking ever since I was a little girl in the Smoky Mountains,” Parton said in the official Apple press release. “I think it’s so important to be able to get out and walk if we can during this time. I do my best thinking when I walk. And while many of us feel confined during this time, I’m hopeful that people will take a walk down memory lane with me and we can all feel a little more freedom taking the time to walk together.”

“Taking a walk is a great way to clear your mind,” Mendes said in the release. “It’s the most simple thing you can do to calm the body and soul, reflect, and slow down. I hope people get to feel the same sense of calm I do while walking and can bring that to their own experiences.”

Fitness+ subscribers can enjoy Time to Walk episodes on their Apple Watch with AirPods or other Bluetooth headphones. New episodes will automatically appear on the Workout app on Apple Watch and on the Fitness+ tab in the Fitness app on the iPhone. Apple Watch users who use a wheelchair will have access to Time to Push, which automatically starts an Outdoor Wheelchair Walk Pace workout.
