    Anyone using the built-in Workout App for weight lifting? There's no preset option for "weight lifting", so I chose "core training". But I don't know if/how this is actually tracking my workouts. I'd appreciate input/advice. Thanks!!

    There is an option for 'strength training' that is what I use.

    All it does is track active calories burned based on heart rate.

    I don't see "strength training" as an option. How am I missing this??

    Should be an option of the different names you can pick.

    I simply don't see that as an option.
    Maybe I need to update software..?

    I have the Nike+ watch on the latest updated software. Not sure anyone else can confirm if they also have this option

    Never knew that. I thought you were always typing in your own names.
