    I would like to know - what is Brisk activity?
    Walk with speed over ??? km/h?
    Normal walk hearth rate over ??? bpm?
    Something else?

    I will tell you why I'm asking: My watches counts my slow walking with my child to the kindergarden as an excercise. I already tried calibration recommeded by Apple.

    Im 37yo with good condition so there is no need to appreciate my slow wolking as a brisk activity.

    I also asked officially at but my question was deleted.

    I took a slow walk at the weekend with the family and i was feeling a bit ropey so it was fast enough but we did 8km over 2 hours.
    The exercise app gave me about 25min of actual exercise for it and when I looked at the track recorded I think this possibly corresponded with the amount of red on the track rather than the yellow which I assume is just ambling.
    HR average for this walk was about 86bpm and I seem to recall hearing something about it having to be over 90bpm for it to record an exercise.
    I go for a brisk walk at lunch time at a forced pace and get the HR to the 120-125bpm region and this always counts as exercise.

    Yep. This is actually one of my favourite things about having the Watch. When you are not tracking your movement, you think only about those times that you are consciously exercising (going for a run, playing tennis, etc.) as exercise.

    But what I've realised since getting the Watch is that actually simply my walking to and from work every day, for example, contributes to a decent amount of my daily exercise and health and fitness that I'd never really thought about before - and it's good to know. Not sure why this guy wants to discount what is still exercise - whether you are walking to the kindergarten, or deliberately walking for exercise - a walk is a walk, your body and watch don't know the conscious reasons, therefore both should, and do, count

    You didn't need a second thread on this.

    Congrats on being a fast walker ;)

    It wasn't meant as a duplicate but it ended as the same issue. Sorry about that :/

    I have third thread about different issue (badly counted ascended floors) so I hope that it will not end as the same again :)
