Hello, so I have had an Apple Watch for around a month or so and decided to turn off the stand reminder thing, I've recently decided to switch it back on but I get no reminders and/or credited for standing on the activity ring.

Also, when I do outdoor or run or something else that uses the green light for heart rate sensor, it seems to sometimes stay on after I finish the run and hit end.

Help is appreciated, thank!

The only thing I have turned off is the "breathe" reminder. If you havent updated to OS 3.0 maybe just do a restore and see if that helps

Got my watch this morning and I'm having the same problems. Neither the watch nor the activity app are registering any steps or anything.

Software is up to do so not sure what else to do

Heart rate sensor staying on for a few minutes after ending a workout is completely normal. As to your notification issue, not sure. Try updating to 3.2

Maybe just a coincidence but my stand hours are no longer updating to the fitness app and my phone is making all the notification sounds it should make when not connected to the AW. Watch has worked without flaw until after the update.

Still not giving me any notifications for standing, any ideas why?

Wish I could help but my stand hours were not working this am, heck it was not even counting steps. Worst is my phone is still making notification sounds like there was no watch.

Tossed it in the drawer and put on the Garmin today. Over it for now. I hope you get your fixed.

My watch is doing this too. All my notifications are going straight to my phone like I'm not even wearing a watch. Was fine before the update.

I am sorry it happening to you, too. Wish I could help but for now am a little fed up with my AW problems. The last update to either the phone or watch left the AW broken.

I know you have tried but rebooting both phone and watch and if that does not work, unpair and repair as a new watch. I did this 10 times and it did not solve my notification, hours standing and now no steps recorded.
