Apple is doubling-down again on health and fitness in its operating systems, and appears to be building an app to help users walk through different workouts, and perform them safely.
The app, reportedly called "Seymour," looks to be a separate app from the Activity app. At present, it looks like it will be launched alongside iOS 14, watchOS 7, and tvOS 14. It isn't clear how much data the two apps will pass between each other at this time.
"Seymour" is said to allow users to download fitness videos, with specific guidance provided on how to get proper credit for completion on the Apple Watch. While the download can be triggered on the Apple Watch, it appears that a larger screen, such as a television with an Apple TV, an iPad, or iPhone will be required to view the videos — which makes sense, given the size of the Apple Watch screen.
According to MacRumors who spotted the app on Monday night, workouts included are core training, cycling, strength training, some form of dance, yoga, and indoor running.
At present, there does not appear to be a monetization path for the videos. There are no in-app purchases or subscription fees currently associated with the training materials.
