Completing the challenge with any workout app that logs data to Apple’s Fitness app will unlock the virtual achievement on the iPhone, Apple Watch, and in Apple’s Messages app.
Apple is encouraging users by telling them to “show your heart some love.”

Upon completing the challenge, it will earn the owners of Apple Watch a virtual trophy that they can showcase, as well as special edition stickers for FaceTime and Messages. Users should anticipate a notification on their Apple Watch a few days before the challenge commences.
The Heart Month Challenge is not the only activity challenge that Apple is dropping in February. The Cupertino tech giant is also running the Utility Challenge to celebrate Black History Month. Apple Watch owners can complete this challenge by closing their Move ring seven days in a row during the month of February.
