Apple Watch is more mysterious when it comes to keeping track of your health and fitness. It also includes a complication that reports the Air Quality Index of the location you are in. Air Quality Index is a standard way for the government to report the Air Quality of a particular region. It is basically a numeric scale that goes from 0 to 500. The lower the number, the better is the Air Quality, and the higher number indicates that the air quality is not so good. It is based on five major air pollutants like ozone, particulates, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide. Now, let us discuss how to check AQI on Apple Watch.
