Today I went for a 2.5hr (150 minute) walk which I recorded with the default workout app, but my exercise ring only recorded 112 minutes of exercise all day. I didn’t pause the workout or make any stops along the way, it was a fairly challenging walk for at least most of the route, and as far as I remember (could be wrong) the length of any workout is usually automatically counted against the exercise ring regardless of the workout intensity etc.

I think this is the first workout I’ve recorded since updating to watchOS 5.2 - is this a known bug?
