    I just went for a cycle ride, and measured it using the cyclemeter app. Interesting that the watch activity counter didn't count this as exercise in the green ring. I realise I didn't use the onboard workout app, and perhaps I should have, but I'd have expected that cyclemeter and the watch would share exercise data via HealthKit.

    I guess we're all still learning the ins and outs of the watch. I just want my darn badge!!! LOL!

    Having a related / similar problem. I don't excerise per se, but I like to keep track of my step counts. So I have a bunch of pedometer / walk tracking apps on my iPhone, some of which have watch apps, and some don't.

    I got the watch yesterday, and walked around the house wearing the watch while I left the iPhone at my desk. The Health app picked up the step count from the watch, and gave a combined total of phone + watch. But none of my pedometer / walk tracking apps, even the ones that have watch apps, picked up the count from the watch. :(

    Anyone know if there is a setting somewhere I need to flip?
