has anyone used the Apple Watch at the gym lifting weights while using wrist wraps like the Schiek wrist wraps?

How’d you do it?

I have been tracking my workouts (cardio and strength training/lifting weights) and have been developing wrist pain on my right wrist. I need support on my wrists but also wanna track my workouts.

Just use the longer strap and wear the watch above your straps on the wrist.

Yeah, my harbingers have pretty thick wrist protection. I just place it a notch lower so I can put it a little higher on my wrist.

I just loosen up the band a little bit and move the watch up my arm a tad. Put the strap on and commence lifting. Sure its not comfortable, but its temporary and does the job.

How does one track strenght training/weight lifting with their AW?

Other mode, and you can select strength training.
