Congratulations to everyone on their July challenges! Those of you who had rough one’s and couldn’t finish it, hopefully August isn’t as bad. Post your August Challenges here and let’s go get it!

I just finished my July challenge yesterday. Sad that I missed a perfect month.
Looking forward to August challenge.

Don't know whether or not I will hit my challenge in August if its crazy like this month where I had to close my rings 31 times. I want to take a break from the Apple watch everyday and wear my other watches a few days.

I stoped doing the challenges when I had an issue, twice, with my AW2. My 4 has been perfect but lost interests.
Then why are you posting in a thread for those who are striving to achieve their challenges?

How do you see your challenge? Got a S4 yesterday.
It’ll notify you first thing in the morning of the 1st of the month. If not, you can find it in your Awards section in the Activity app.

Fill all 3 rings, three times for the month of July: check.

Now that I've been back in the gym and have had some days off from work (can't wear tech inside the building), I've been filling my rings a bit more. I'm honestly hoping that my August challenge is a bit more.. challenging.

Hopefully I don't eat my words (but probably will)

That salt. Sigh. (Shake heads)

With that being said, looks like I am kinda forced to close all rings all days to get this achievement.

Got nothing on the watch or the app for the August challenge, it shows a completed one from December 2018 that's it.

My August challenge is to burn 51,500 calories. that is 1,658 per day - hmmm... with my daily goal at 650 not sure that is doable but we will see. I think it takes a 12 month average but last year I was without a job and took my energy to working out. Not this year.

August challenge 1970 minutes of exercise which equals almost 64 minutes a day. Doable if I have a more active rest day. I normally just do 30 minutes on my rest days just to close the ring.

I need to burn 38600 calories, which seemed insane at first, but my average calorie burn for the last few months was 1186/day and I’ll just need to hit about 1245/day to get this one. It’ll be a challenge but I think it’s possible!

Exercise 900 minutes (29 a day). Should be doable since I need 30 a day to close my rings, but have been ill the past two weeks so not really been pushing the exercise lately (averaging 10-15 mins). So guess I now have an incentive to work through my low-energy feelings and get exercising again. :D
