Apple is planning to add a number of new exercises to its Apple Watch Workouts app this fall, according to new icons and titles uncovered in the latest iOS 11 beta.

Activities will include the addition of badminton, barre, baseball, bowling, boxing climbing, core training, cricket, curling, dance, equestrian sports, fencing, fishing, flexibility, functional training, golf, gymnastics, jump rope, kickboxing, lacrosse, paddle sports, pilates, “play,” sailing, skating, skiing and other snow sports, step training, strength training and surfing.

Additional routines will include outdoor swimming, elliptical, high intensity interval training, and others.

Coming soon: Apple Watch 3

The new third generation Apple Watch is set to debut next month. Its big feature is reportedly set to be greater levels of iPhone independence, although Apple analyst KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested that the device may not be able to make phone calls at launch.

In addition to its new exercises, watchOS 4 will also bring new watchfaces and other enhancements. For more information on all the new features coming in the next version of Apple Watch software, read our post (Hands on: Does watchOS 4 give Apple Watch what it needs?) or watch our video below.
