Apple is celebrating Thanksgiving this year by urging U.S. Apple Watch owners to bag a special achievement by recording a minimum walking or running distance on Thursday, November 24.

Available through the Activity app this morning, the Thanksgiving Day Challenge is the first activity challenge of its kind from Apple, and includes a share-able Messages app sticker as an enticement to get out and get moving.

To earn the achievement, Apple Watch wearers must record an Apple Watch Workout distance of 5K (3.1 miles) on the day in question, using Apple’s Workout app or any third-party app that syncs with HealthKit.

An Apple Watch user’s history of achievements can be viewed any time via the Achievements tab on the iOS Activity app.

(Thanks, Dan!)
