I love the activity app on my iPhone home. Gives me a quick overview of my month. In fact just realized I missed my move goal yesterday :( so no chance for a perfect month. But that's fine.
When I went back up to last month I notice I had nothing on a Friday Sept 5th. Which didn't make since. I knew I was driving that day so I would meet my goals but I should have got something. Even weirder, on the next day, Saturday, Sept6, I had data shown but I didn't wear my watch at all that day so It should be empty.
After a few minutes I realized that the calendar days were wrong. The last listed day of the week was actually Sunday not Saturday. And the day I thought was Friday, was actually Saturday.
So the day with no data was Saturday no Friday which is how it should have been.

My iPhone calendar isn't set up like that so why is the activity app set up like that. And how to I fix the days of the week to be correct. I want Sunday to be the first day of the week like it should be.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Yea, there is no 'fix' for this, the Activity calendar starts on a Monday and runs through Sunday. This has to do more with calendar styles than anything else. The work week starts on Monday and runs for 5 days followed by two weekend days before going again. This was strange to me too when I first noticed it but knowing its that way, I'm accustomed to it now.

This is an odd convention. Every other calendar I have seen is a Sunday-Saturday format. I wish Apple would give the user a choice. Some people consider Saturday the end of their workout week and some people see Sunday as the end of their workout week. I am a Saturday guy-- my big run is on Saturday, at the end of my workout week. Sunday I rest.

Well that's dumb. Why would the actual calendar in the phone and literally every other calendar in the world run from Sun-Sat but yet the activity calendar from Monday-Sun.
That just confusing and stupid.

That describes my experience with Apple products. Absolutely brilliant hardware design, brought low by some of the most asinine software design decisions in the universe.
