    Custom workouts for something other than running?

    Is it possible to create custom workouts for activities other than running? Would be especially useful for swimming so that I don't have to remember every set but can simply check the watch. I could also use (free) third party apps if there is any. Many thanks in advance!

    Workout creates splits by itself?

    I cannot figure this out and hope someone can help. I take a daily walk and tell my watch 7 so. Recently IT started adding 'splits' to my walk (not me!). At random moments the screen shows split 1 or split 2. I am not sure what to do so I just click the side crown button to make it go away. I...

    iPhone Gym workout app

    I've started back in the gym but this time it is without a trainer. When I went to the gym before, I had a trainer and she kept a notebook. For each piece of equipment, she would have the settings and the weight and perhaps other notes. It also logged what exercises we did each week because...

    Watch OS 9 no longer announces rings closed and miles completed during workout

    When doing an outdoor walk workout, I used to get voice feedback on how many miles I've completed and when a ring closes (movement, exercise, etc.). After updating to watch OS 9, I no longer receive these voice feedback updates but instead get split updates and some other useless info. Does...

    Walk vs run

    About to try my hand at running now that the weather is warming up and thinking I’ll likely be doing a mix of running and walking until I get my running stamina up. Would you set your workouts to just run, just walk, or would you keep hitting the add button and switching back and forth between...

    Pause vs end, pause vs continuing workout

    Say for example I choose to walk rather than drive to the grocery store to grab a few things. I would start the walk workout and get to briskly stepping, then when I arrive at the grocery store I could either end the workout then start a new one when I leave, or pause and then resume when I...

    Hello all, I'm having a weird issue with my AW Series 4 (watchOS 5.3.1). Starting yesterday, and entirely out of the blue, the Workout app has stopped showing the correct heartrate during any kind of workout. The weird thing is that if I go back to my watchface with a heart rate complication or...

    Yesterday, I hiked Mt. Bierstadt – one of Colorado's 14ers. I started and stopped tracking my hike at the same time on both my Apple Watch Series 4 using the workout app and my iPhone 8 using the GPS Tracks app. I have found the GPS Tracks app to be very reliable in the past. When I finished, I...
