When you step onto an outdoor jogging track, the Apple Watch can automatically recognize your location using a database from Apple Maps and GPS data. This feature is known as Track Detection.
You can acquire more accurate distance measurements and a more detailed route map by using the Workout app, which allows you to select which lane of the track you are running in and allows you to choose which lane you are running in.
You also have the option to receive lap notifications that provide information regarding the distance traveled, the amount of time elapsed, and the rate of your progress as you complete each lap.
Models of the Apple Watch that are running watchOS 9.2 and later are able to access the feature. watchOS 9.2 is compatible with all Apple Watch models released after the Apple Watch Series 4 was released.

Apple has not yet brought its page detailing regional support for features up to date so that it can reflect the most recent additions.
