    Lol. It means Apple still haven’t sorted out their algorithm.

    After a while your challenges get a bit customized, depending on how you did the previous month.

    I’m assuming you just got your Apple Watch? Generally with that challenge you would just have to beat the number of exercise minutes from the previous month by a certain margin. Since your number from the previous month would be zero you don’t have to work very hard in October to win that challenge ;).

    I’ll never be able to beat that challenge because  watch doesn’t have any weight training measuring system.

    I’m having Apple Watch since the original one. Damn! If I have to beat last months minutes it would be roughly 70 mins a day :eek:

    For anyone curious, today I have 84 mins workout but no October badge.

    My wife just got her award by reaching her move goal 0 times this month. I have to reach it 7 times to complete the challenge.

    Ok, sorry I must’ve misunderstood. I thought you meant it was your first ever AW challenge, but it was just your first time getting this particular challenge? In that case it’s definitely a bug.

    For an entire year now, I have been a slug. I used to do every challenge, and hit my goals every day. My October goal is basically 2 minutes a day for exercise. I think I can handle that without too much effort.

    Just select Other Workout, name it weightlifting afterwards, and there you go. Better than nothing.

    I got the notification for my October challenge on my watch which says I have to get two 200% days this month, but in the Activity app on my phone it says get 1480 minutes of exercise this month.

    Do some cardio after your weights and you should be setup for a challenge if you so desire..

    That’s so mean.

    Activities app on my iPhone says nothing about the challenge whatsoever.
