    On Saturday, all was working - I got the award for 173 days of move goal completion. Sunday, it was as if my watch didn't see the achievement data. I got the recognition for 7 days of stand, and of exercise - but not for move. I thought things would resolve themselves I updated the watch to 2.2.2, I did hard reset of watch and phone. Nothing solved the problem. Finally today - Wednesday August 10, I unpaired and repaired the AW and iPhone and I picked the most recent BU. Watch is now working in that it sees move goal completion but it doesn't see all the past data. So I was congratulated on 7 days of the move goal. I spoke with Apple Care who basically told me that there would be no way to get the past data integrated with the AW. If I picked an older BU it wouldn't see the data since then. SO ... if one day your watch doesn't record the move goal achievement data, unpair and repair the watch and phone by the next day. As much was its a real pain. Otherwise, the past data will be invisible to AW. I'm not sure that it would be if you did it the next day - but I clearly waited too long. So I've just got to "move on." Very frustrating. I gave Apple feedback - but I'n not sure what I wrote is coherent - as they don't give enough space.

    The watch only works midnight to midnight, but have you tried reviewing the data in the activity app on your iphone?

    I often have days where it randomly stops giving me the Longest Move Streak achievement and it can be days before it catches up. Sometimes it'll stop on a tuesday, and won't resume until saturday, but if i looked on friday it would suddenly have the achievement listed at the bottom of tuesday and wednesday's pages.

    I check daily in the hopes that the data has caught up, but so far no. Interestingly, today when I was in the pool with the watch I didn't (yet) unpair and repair to the phone - it gave me the gold chevron for a 7 workout week. It gave me that when I got out of the pool despite the fact that my iPhone was 2 flights up in a locker. AND when I checked that achievement showed up on my phone. So the watch appears to have some memory beyond 1 day. Meanwhile I'll keep my hopes up that it starts noting the missing days. I've restarted my phone and that has done nothing.

    Does anyone know if you have two watches - do you have to unpair and repair both of the? I only did the one yesterday and things appear to be working like data is recorded.

    YOU ARE RIGHT NICHO. It took until Sunday but when I got up today ALL MY ACHIEVEMENTS were there correctly. I was at Day 180 of my continuous move streak. For some reason, I feel much happier. Probably empowered - pairing works (and I didn't do the second watch) and feeling the software works quite well. I thought the "accounting" took place Monday into Tuesday but it looks like there's really big reconciliation that takes place Saturday into Sunday.
