Apple Watch National Park celebration launches with Messages stickers for participants
Apple has launched a celebration of America's national parks, with awards and stickers for Messages inspired by national parks for workout rewards.
On July 15, Apple Watch users that complete a walk, run, or wheelchair workout of 3.5 miles will get the award and the stickers. The distance was selected, as the 3.5 miles matches a hike from Old Faithful to Mallard Lake in Yellowstone National Park.
"America's national parks are an inspiration to us at Apple, and we know they are as important to many of our customers as they are to us," said Apple's CEO Tim Cook. "Our goal is to leave the world better than we found it, so this July we're making it easier for anyone to help preserve the beauty of our natural, cultural and historical treasures."
From July 1 through 15, Apple is donating $1 to the National Park Foundation for every purchase made with Apple Pay at any Apple Store or through the Apple Store app in the United States. Proceeds will support the National Park Foundation's mission to help protect and preserve national parks through conservation projects and other initiatives.
