    I'm wondering if anyone else is having any issues with the "stand" circle of the activity app? It seems erratic on whether it counts activity as standing. There have been several times where it asks me to get up and stand, so I do.. I walk around, move, dance around on my feet for five or more minutes, and then at the end of the hour it ticks an "idle hour" into my stand data. Pretty annoying! Wondering if anyone knows what the requirement is to hit a "stand" or if there is something else I should be doing...


    Edit: I just let my dogs out, put my baby to bed, climbed a flight of stairs twice, sat, got up and went to the fridge for a drink, and am back.. yet none of this counted as "standing". I am on 11/12 stands for the day, just don't get it.

    Clearly most of us have limited experience but here is what I have observed. It seems to be based on each hour of the day. So you have to stand each hour of the day as to not have an hour seated. Its not cumulative as the number of times you stood just the number of hours a day you had standing events.

    Again this seems to be the behavior I am seeing.

    and by standing, they mean standing and move around for 1 minute; the watch doesn't really know you're standing, it just assumes you are if you're moving your arm back and forth for a minute.

    So if between 9 and 10 you stand and move for a minute, it adds 1 to your count; if you do it 5 times during 9 and 10, you still only get one count for that hour.
