hey guys, when i first set up my watch it asked me on my level of activity and there were 3 setting to choose from, i cant remember the exact names they used but there was something like light activity, intermediate and a third setting, i picked the medium setting and now i noticed that i rather change it to the first setting, where can i find this setting? dont see it on the watch itself or in the apple watch app on the iphone.

Open activity on your apple watch and use force touch (how you change the clock face).

Does anybody know what the 3 levels the watch initially suggests are (the calorie numbers, not the names)? I guess these might depend quite a bit on your size and age, but if people remember what they were it would be interesting.

As of this moment not yet. Wish there was a way to change it too.

Not likely to happen. 30 minutes a day of exercise is considered a good minimum, so Apple probably won't lower this or allow it to be lowered. Also sitting for more than an hour at a time is detrimental to your health and even shortens your lifespan. Apple is generous in giving you 4 hours but not likely to allow it to be less than 12.

There is no default and it is dependent on your metrics. I wish Apple would add metrics like body fat, fitness level (VO2 Max) and minimal HR/maximal HR.
