Also in the realm of fitness, the watchOS 9 version adds new workout modes and “form metrics” for runners, such as stride length, ground contact time, and vertical oscillation, to the list of new watch face options. For triathletes, there’s a new form of workout that alternates between cycling, swimming, and running automatically. In addition, the Fitness mobile and Watch app on the Apple Watch may now display data from Meta’s Move fitness tracker for the Quest, for those who own a Meta Quest VR headset.
