    I have bad ankles so can't walk more than 2.5 miles per hour. Will the watch count my treadmill time as a workout?

    You can start a workout with “indoor walk”.

    It likely won’t count it as exercise unless you start an “other” workout. You could try "indoor walk", but that doesn’t give you exercise minutes unless you walk fairly briskly.

    As someone who has used indoor walk on a treadmill with it set at 2-2.5, yes the Apple Watch will count it as exercise. It’s just brisk enough to count
