According to French tech blog WatchGeneration, Apple Watch's treadmill detection has already launched in France and the Netherlands.

With Track Detection, Apple Watch uses the Apple Maps database and GPS to automatically detect when you're on an outdoor treadmill.

In the Workout app, you can select the lane of the track you're running on and get better distance measurements and a more accurate route map. You can also receive lap alerts with distance, time, and pace as you complete each lap.

This feature is available on Apple Watch models running watchOS 9.2 and later. watchOS 9.2 is compatible with Apple Watch Series 4 and later.
