In a bid to encourage Apple Watch users to get active, a new challenge was launched in mid-February, which ran for a period of one month. Participants from across India could take part in the challenge in a bid to help their city win by earning more points. As the competition comes to a close, we take a look at some of the interesting statistics from the "Get Active India" challenge.

Participants of Get Active India challenge tracked their movements on Apple Watch and depending on their activities, points were earned. Participants could earn 12 points each time they close the Move Ring, 12 points to close the Exercise Ring and 1 point for each Stand hour. Earning 80 points a day gave a gold medal, 60 points for silver and 40 points for bronze.
