Apple is gearing up to celebrate Veterans Day with a new Apple Watch Activity challenge, scheduled for Monday, November 11.

To earn the Veterans Day badge, you’ll need to complete a workout of 11 minutes or more that day. The challenge is open to users in the United States, although you may want to check to see if it’s available if you live in a non-U.S. country. (Not that it should stop you working out, of course!)

Apple regularly offers localized activity challenges around the world to mark different holidays. People who complete these challenges can earn exclusives badges in the Activity app, along with animated stickers for Messages and FaceTime.

Apple’s activity awards are increasingly shifting to region-specific awards. For example, this summer Apple staged a region-locked award for China’s National Fitness Day. Apple has long since celebrated Veterans Day with Apple Watch badges. It offered similar badges in both 2017 and 2018.
