    Is anyone noticing your not getting credit for standing ever hour. I have noticed this a few times. Today when I got the notification I stood up walked from my couch to the kitchen. Then I stood there for 15 minutes doing dishes. Still No credit. Seriously wtf. This is really bothering me. Is anyone else seeing this?

    I think it actually wants a minute of movement each hour to count. When at work I get off my chair and walk up to the next floor. Eventually the Watch vibrates to let you know you have met the standing amount for the hour.

    To be honest I see it less as standing reminder and more of a move reminder.

    Oh. I didn't even know you get a completion notification. Ok I'll try and walk around for a minute next time.

    I noticed the same thing. The watch reminded me two times to stand up whereas I was certainly active (walking > 5 min through my apartment) during these two hours.

    How would it know the difference between sitting and standing still?

    I have the same problem. I had just finished walking around the kitchen doing various things for at least 5 minutes & a couple of minutes after I sat down, it alerted me to stand.

    It's definitely not just a matter of standing up. You have to move around until it tells you to stop.

    The past three hours have no standing credit but I've been walking between two rooms for all three hours. Super annoying. I'm been standing more than I've been sitting.

    I too am seeing this. I've made it a point to stand during certain hours for at least 5 mins(as per apple all you have to do is stand 1 minute to get credit) and still it's given me no stand credit for that hour. I've even done activity for 5-10 mins of that hour and still nothing. It's definitely in need of a software update.

    Seems others are having the same issue. Hopefully Apple will improve it soon. And walking did it, Thanks guys :) But it definitely needs work.

    I've never gotten a notice about completion that I know of, but it has still counted my time.

    I've noticed that it tells me to stand up even though I've been walking around and doing stuff around the house. It hasn't done that in a while so I'm wondering if it calibrates your moment as you wear it?

    Yeah, I've also gotten a stand reminder shortly after I had been walking around doing things for a bit. I've also gotten up and walked around in response to stand notifications and not always gotten credit (and I'm sure I was up and about for for over a minute).

    It's wonky, I was walking around sat down and in a few minutes it said stand.

    I hate that it says you stood 9 hours! No, just that I stood a few minutes every hour...big deal:D

    Actually I would love for it to just tell me how many hours I was up and how many hours I was sitting. I know it could do this.

    I THINK if you leave the stand message up while you stand AND MOVE A LITTLE is when it seems to vibrate. I was at lunch today waiting for my food when I got the stand notification. I got up and went to the bathroom and while I was there I got the little vibration. I like that the message is a little different each time.
