    Stupid question...why can’t I see the animated rings after they fill?

    I have the series 3...I still. Can’t see them. It just shows them full and the regular old rings.

    That's weird. For the record, I have S2 and I don't get it either.

    I’m not even sure when or how I should be seeing them. Anyone have any insight?

    The flashy animation occurs when you successfully complete a ring. When you get the completion ding sound and vibration, you look at your watch and you'll see a black screen and an electrified animated ring appears filling up in clockwise fashion, then the usual congratulations text and whatnot. If you complete an activity ring while doing a tracked workout, you don't get the animation, instead a pop up for a few seconds will let you know "Move Ring Completed" etc. with the respective ring color text and circle, then the screen goes back to your usual workout screen.

    Do you have Goal Completions ticked on in the Activity section under Notifications in your Apple Watch app on your iPhone?

    Aha. I see. I do but I never look at it during my workout.

    Yeah, you'll only see the animation when you're not in a workout, like you are walking around doing whatever and you crossed the threshold for your Move calories for the day. It's flashy, that's for sure, haha

    The animation begins straight after the chime and only lasts a couple of seconds. You only get one chance to see it!

    I too had this problem but found the answer in another thread. Here’s what you need to do.

    1. On your iPhone, go to the Apple Watch app.
    2. Go to notifications.
    3. Turn off notification privacy.
