The service, which is pretty similar to Peloton, offers workout classes that you can watch on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV while your Apple Watch records body metrics. The classes are led by professional trainers combined with music from top artists.

Ten different types of fitness classes are offered, including Treadmill Walk, HIIT, Treadmill Run, Rowing, Dance, Cycling, Yoga, Core, Strength, and Mindful Cool down. The length of the classes will vary from 5 to 45 minutes, and new workouts will be added weekly.

You can find a class based on which trainer you like, the length, and the music you want to hear.

If you wear your Apple Watch while working out, the stats from your workout will appear on screen, along with various motivational and engaging animations.

"We're excited for Apple Fitness+ to bring together the metrics from Apple Watch, great music, and a diverse and inspiring trainer team — in a uniquely simple, easy-to-access way across Apple devices — to encourage our users to get fit and stay healthy," Jay Blahnik, Apple's senior director of fitness technologies, said in a statement.

To use Apple Fitness+, you'll need the latest version of iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tVOS. The cost is $9.99 or $79.99 per year, and up to six family members can share one account.
