Apple dropped the ball pretty hard on this one. I got tired of the inaccurate health/fitness data so I wiped and restored both of my devices (XR and series 4). While it seems to have fixed the issues it also wiped out all of my gps data. Every mountain bike ride, run and hike from the last four years are gone. Last Apple Watch I’ll ever use...
I mean...what’s the big deal? I’ve been running for 26 years. I didn’t log a darn thing for the first 14 of that. To this day I still use a word document to log my workouts.
Did they drop the ball with this update? Yes, I absolutely agree on that. Is it the end of the world because you can’t look up your bike ride from July 5, 2017? No.
I’m kind of a purist and I get downvoted for it a lot on Reddit. People are so overly focused on data. Data they don’t even use or don’t know how to use. For running I need time, pace, and distance. I use the stopwatch function for track workouts and let the workout app just run in the background for total mileage. My advice: stop being so reliant on a device. Run, cycle, whatever you do by feel and effort. Truly learn what paces feel like and what it naturally feels like to take a little speed off or put just a little on without relying on a device spitting out a number at you.
Sorry, rant over!!
