How to Prepare for Marathon Day: Tips for Success

Customise Your Apple Watch for Long-Distance Runs by following these small steps:

1. Low Power Mode: When embarking on a marathon, conserving battery life is crucial. Use the Low Power Mode instead of the Always On display to extend battery longevity.

2. Sync Entertainment for the Road: Sync your favourite music, podcasts, and audiobooks directly to your Apple Watch beforehand. This way, you can stay entertained and motivated even when you're out of range of your iPhone.

3. Turn Off Mobile Data: Disable mobile data on your Apple Watch in the hours leading up to your run. This conserves energy for essential functions and ensures your watch is primed for the marathon ahead.
