On Activity on iPhone both my Heart Month award and my Ring in the New Year Challenge award are gone! No section in there at all for 'limited edition'

On my Watch (both of them) only my Heart Month award is listed under that category. Am I to expect it, too, will disappear once March comes? If so, what's the point of earning the blasted thing if it's gonna disappear where I can't even admire it later?

I rebooted both the Watch and iPhone no dice.

That happened to some other members earlier. Maybe when they moved to Watch is 6. The good news is that they eventually came back for most users

Mine wasn't due to any update though like from what I've read elsewhere. All those seem to be related to iOS 12 updates but my phone and watch are on the same version since out of box and I don't update stuff anymore.

I wonder if you actually have to keep this app up to date to maintain awards? That wouild suck. My 'normal' monthly awards and activity medals seem to be fine, but Limited Edition ones seem well, limited visibility.

This happens sometimes. It happened to me a month or so ago when I restarted my watch. Just give it a day or two, they should come back.

The category is still entirely MIA on the phone (I even attempted to force stop the app and reload, and tried to swipe to refresh but that action apparently doesn't exist)

If my Heart Month award vanishes come March I'll just disable anything to do with earning the blasted things since they just end up vanishing! Makes me very angry. I can turn off the notifications and I'll just pretend they don't exist.

With all the trouble that would be (initial pairing was not an easy thing for me. It was a rigamorole. after it scanned that pattern on the watch it got stuck in an update loop where it never went anywhere. Then I reset the watch again and then the phone refused to talk to it, since it figured the watch was already paired but the watch, fully reset, had forgotten. I don't even know what combo of actions I did to finally pair the darned thing.)

I decided these 'limited edition' awards are simply not worth the effort.

Agh, that’s awful I’m sorry. I wish you the best of luck though, hopefully they’ll decide to reappear soon.

If they just show up on the watch (and not the iPhone) that's fine as well. If, however, my Heart Month award disappears come March, I'll just forego them and turn off the 'special awards' feature in the watch app. yeah, it is a shame.

Considering your screenshot from the iPhone ... I noticed your February challenge shows 12/26 ... is this not needing to be completed?

Either way why not contact Apple Support see what they have to say?

February Challenge is different from Heart Month. The "February Challenge" is not a "limited edition" award. There are monthly challenges each month as well as 'special' challenges. Heart Month is the latter--I got it by closing my exercise ring from the 8th to the 14th. The "February Challenge" is doing 26 workouts of 15 minutes in length or more during February. I have not lost any of the 'monthly' challenges I've earned.

Same for the Ring in the New Year Challenge badge I lost. I still have my "January Challenge" which is just a normal monthly challenge different from the Limited Edition category.
