Problems with "Standing" after DST

I noticed today that my watch is logging the "standing" an hour off. During the 4:00 hour, it logged it on my watch as being during the 5 o'clock hour. Then I looked on my phone and saw in the Activity app that instead of showing "12, 6, 12, 6" on the chart that shows what hours I stood during, it's showing "12, 5, 11, 5, 11". Maybe it'll just be a problem today since this is the day of the change over from DST to standard time.

Anybody else seeing the strange behavior?

I don't use the Activity app, but this wouldn't be the first time Apple has had an issue with the time change.

Exact same problem. Hopefully it will be only a one time occurrence.

Same issue, except mine wasn't logging them correctly and now my 21 day streak is over because of yet another DST bug by Apple.

I had the same behavior. Furthermore, if I open the app on my iPhone, and if I click on Nov 1, then the app crashes. My wife's iPhone does exactly the same thing.

If I look at it in month or week view... then it shows all 3 circles are completed. However, clicking on day view, causes the app to crash.

I have no idea if it killed my perfect streak. I guess I will know later today when I complete all 3 circles.

I've had a perfect streak since April 25th. My wife and I both got our Apple Watches on launch date of April 24th set it up that evening, and had full 3 circles every day since.

Screwing up DST seems pretty amateurish for a "watch company".

I completed a perfect week last night with a last-minute workout, and trying to view Activity prior to midnight ended up with a crash.

After midnight, though, it started working fine (although it still crashes when I tap on Nov 1's day view), and I received the badge for the perfect week.

It was aggravating, for sure; I had failed to get a perfect week this summer when I filled the rings from Sunday thru Saturday and took the following Sunday off, not understanding that Activity was looking for a perfect Monday-to-Sunday streak.

Basically, once it crossed midnight, it went from this:

If I click on the day 11/1/15 it still crashes... but I still got my perfect record for the day. I've owned my Apple watch since launch day... set it up that night... and have had perfect days since. 193 perfect days.

The DST snafu did not ruin my perfect streak.

I do not understand why so many people are having it crash when you select the day of time change and yet every single device in my household (5 phones/5 watches) do not crash.

I had the issue of showing move an hour earlier. I restarted the watch and it fixed that. for a couple of days it showed 11/5 insteaf of 12/6.... then all the sudden with me doing nothing: it changed back to 12/6... I think yesterday.....
