    I just noticed that my the activity companion app on the iPhone has been registering my runs under workouts but it will still say I have 0/30 minutes of exercise for the day. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Not sure I follow. Are you saying you went running using the workout app on the watch but it didn't register any exercise?

    Apple considers elevated heart rate + movement as exercise.

    If the heart rate sensor is not detecting your heart rate properly it will not register it as exercise. Try moving the watch up your arm about an inch next time you go running.

    I do 30 minute walks every day and usually rack up about 22 minutes of exercise (I think that's when my heart rate is > 130)

    I see, that makes sense seeing as when I look at my run the heart rate shows as --. Still that is odd though because I distinctly remember looking at the heart rate on the watch during my run. I'm about to go for a run today so I will see what happens...

    what I tend to do is wear it close to my hand but when I exercise I push the watch up my arm where it gets tighter.
