If you are looking for ways to stay motivated and on track with your fitness routine, using the latest trends in technology may be just what you need.
Apple launched “Audio Hints,” a feature that allowed iPhone users to set reminders based on their workout goals, with the iPhone 6s. These audible messages can also be set at specific times during the day. The feature ensures that you not only stay motivated but also know exactly when to start working out and when to stop.
If you want audio guidance for workouts, which is helpful when you’re trying to do something else (like watching TV) simultaneously, Audio Hints can come in very handy.
How to Enable iPhone Audio Hints for Fitness+
Audio Hints is an excellent instrument ideal for things to start and end during the workout session, facilitating exercise modifications, changes in body positions, and equipment adjustments.
Audio Hints will be automatically enabled if you have turned on your VoiceOver. If not, then you can also enable your Audio Hints manually. Want to know how? Here are six simple steps to follow to enable Audio Hints on your iPhone manually:
- Launch the Fitness application on your iPhone or iPad,
- Once you have opened the app, tap ‘Fitness+’ at the bottom of the screen.
- After you click on it, choose your workout.
- Once the workout is selected, tap ‘Let’s Go/Begin.’
- Click on ‘Metrics Editor.’
- After that, click on ‘Audio Hints’ to toggle them on or off.
Following all the steps mentioned above will allow you to enable Audio Hints for Fitness+ on your iPhone. Apple empowers its users by allowing them to adjust the speed of your audio descriptions, facilitating you to move at your own pace, speed things up or slow them down as per your convenience.
As you can see, enabling your Audio Hints can be very useful when you’re working out or need a reminder to complete an activity. Go ahead and enable Audio Hints on your iPhone, which will help you divert your attention to the workout at hand and still have audio guidance to follow.
Once you complete and end a Guided Workout session, Audio Hints will automatically turn off. If you would like to re-enable Audio Hints again, simply follow the same steps above, but this time tap “Show more” on the Audio Hints toggle screen to turn that setting back on.
