    I love my watch and I am motivated to get those rings spinning on the active/exercise/stand tracker. But sometimes I get more done than it records because sometimes I forget.

    Case in point today. I was up at 7. I work from home and I got busy right away in the morning before I put my watch on. It was 11 AM before I finally put it on. But today I likely won't make my stand hours as far as the watch is concerned even though I really did get them all in.

    Also, I went to the gym tonight for a training session. In the changeroom I had the workout app all set and ready to go. Went to the cardio gear and got on a recumbent bike. I was 27 of 30 planned minutes into my warm-up when I realized I never hit "start" on the workout so it missed a lot of my workout.

    It would be nice if you could log some of this stuff manually so that you get full credit in the app. I know some would abuse it but I just want to log what I really did.

    I know that in both examples "not forgetting" would solve this but we're humans and sometimes we forget. It would just be nice to be able to log activities, etc. manually for times when you can't wear the watch or forgot to turn something on.

    Rase your wrist and say 'Hey Siri remind me every day at 7:30am to put on my :apple:Watch'. Reminders = "not forgetting"

    This is a big gap that I hope Apple fixes with wOS 3 or wOS 4.

    And forgetting to hit "start" when I start a workout instead of 30 minutes in?

    As for not putting it on yesterday a reminder would not have worked. I just got busy first thing in the morning and it wasw 11 AM before I had a break to do something about it.
