Apple Fitness+ will cost ten bucks per month or just $80 per year. Current Apple Watch owners get one month for free while new watch buyers will be treated to three full months of free service. Lastyl, you’ll be able to get Apple Fitness+ as part of the Premier tier of the company’s new Apple One subscription bundle.
In exchange for $29.95 per month, Apple One Premier subscribers will get Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, 2TB iCloud storage, Apple News+ and Apple Fitness+, with the ability to share the whole subscription bundle with up to five other people.
Apple Fitness+ will be available in late 2020.
With Apple Fitness+, the company hopes to bank on the stay-at-home trends as many people stopped going to the gym due to the coronavirus pandemic, opting for home workouts instead. Shares of Peleton suffered a blow immediately following the Apple Fitness+ announcement.
