I have a streak of 333+ days of hitting my move goal and I'd like to keep it. A few days ago, according to my phone today, I did only 418 instead of 420 calories -- so it says I didn't meet my goal. I'd like to fudge it since I could have easily spent two extra calories AND... I'm pretty sure I exercised until it said I had completed my move and exercise goals... otherwise, I would have kept going.

Is there any way to go back and add in the two extra calories so that my move streak will continue. I guess its not a huge deal but I'm kinda bummed and feeling betrayed.

Being “a few days removed” probably prevents this from being possible. I’m just shooting from the hip here, but I don’t know of any way to just change the E number. The only other possible solution I could think of was to wrest the date and time on your watch and go back and burn those two calories, but since that was multiple days ago, it sure how this would affect subsequent days.

Looks like you might just have to start over.

I thought it was going to work. I went to my iPhone and set the date back to last Tuesday. The watch said "Yes!! its Tuesday". The Activity calories showed 404 for some reason. I started an exercise workout and the calories showed 1300+ and they were accumulating but when I looked at the activity, it stayed at 404. My phone for that day didn't say ... it said 418 out of 420. I fiddled with it a bit but it seemed hopeless. I set the time back to "automatic" on the iPhone and admitted defeat.

Oh well... I'm bummed. I was going to get to 365 and then start a different thing. What I really want to do is figure out some weekly goal I think... I'm not sure really.

Anyhow... Thanks for the brief moment of hope. :)

Have you tried manually entering a workout in the Health app on your iPhone for that day?

Health app -> Day -> Workouts -> + in the upper right corner.

That should allow you to manually enter a workout of a few calories, not certain if that will change the streak data though.

Yea... that was my first attempt. Doesn't make any sense but I added a workout for 5 calories but it didn't change my activity calories. I think once the day ends, its locked in some storage somewhere... I guess.
