Track GPS activity from Apple Watch for football. 

if that could be done as a heatmap to show average position during the game would be great

Hi @Edbo81 

Thanks for posting about this.  Could you clarify if you are talking about American style football or soccer/football?  Thanks.

Hey @Edbo81 we haven’t heard back from you and will be archiving this idea unless you update us within a week. Thanks!

This would seem like a good idea for football (or soccer as it is called in some countries).  The same would also apply to other similar sports, such as rugby, hockey or basketball.  In many pro sports the players wear GPS trackers so the coaches can give feedback after a game.  This data is also shared to TV companies who show "heatmaps" of some of the players as part of their analysis of the game.  All interesting information for many sports fans.

Please can this be reopened. My request for was soccer (US), football (UK)

As commented by another poster, would also be interesting for other sports.

My first thought when I see this topic is that when I was playing soccer, we were never allowed to wear a watch or other device due to safety concerns (didn't want to accidentally catch someones finger under your wristband or anything like that).  Now there are so many other ways to wear things like that which would make it possible to track.  I feel old... 😉
